So this one might be a little pre-emptive but here goes.

I have updated/added an entry in Filming Locations under Episode VIII – The Last Jedi for the planet Rian Johnson has named as CRAIT – “It’s way out there. It’s uncharted. It’s a mineral planet and so there are mines on it,” according to Johnson.

When I know more I will update the page, but for now, take a look and if you know anything please let me know….

Red Carpet premiere

It’s here…well almost, over the recent weekend in Hollywood, USA, the Rogue One cast & crew were out to promote and celebrate the release of this highly anticipated addition to the Star Wars Universe.

Live Stream footage (note doesn’t get going till around the hour mark).

English director, Gareth Edwards was tasked with helming this anthology story and bring a new dimension to the worlds George Lucas created.

Reports from critics, who have already seen the film, have been mostly praising the weaving together of the old story plot points and new characters & locations.

Yours truly hopes to catch the film at a midnight showing locally.
