Star Wars: Episode VIII was supposed to be filming in Skellig Island in Ireland (here) this week but bad weather (in Ireland!? Shocker) has held production up for a few days…

However, The Irish Examiner is reporting that Mark Hamill is expected to be on the island to film new scenes in the island which also features in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While nothing is yet known about Episode VIII except that it looks like Benicio Del Toro will be a bad guy in it (here), it’s directed by Looper’s Rian Johnson (here) and it’s due for release on May 26th, 2017, it’s interesting that Hamill may be back…

Will we see him unscathed? Could he be a villain this time out (there have been rumours) or will he perhaps go all Obi-Wan and be a Force Ghost?

Only time will tell, but we’re relieved he’s back, or potentially back at least, are you?

Sound off in the usual ways.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
