Episode 8, now has added multiple alien roles to the focal point of Star Wars Episode 8, indicated by the images embedded below. There's also an image that details a scene wherein the alien diplomats seen in the photos, are in fear of a Force-wielding individual, capable of ripping a land-speeder in half. We don't see any familiar faces on the set alongside them, but we can imagine that some Force-wielder will be in the near vicinity, capable of causing the destruction from afar. Not much is known of Star Wars Episode 8, in terms of confirmed information. The only aspect of the film which has been confirmed, is that Rian Johnson is directing. We just have to wait for the first promotional footage for the film to give us any details about the new entry in the Star Wars franchise. For now, there's a huge compilation of images from the set of Star Wars Episode 8, we can dive into. And speculate how these images will fit into the film. One thing is certain, there's at least one Force-wielder on the set within the images provided below. Accounting for the exploding land-speeder with no physical cause for the explosion, as well as the linear cut down the vehicle makes the situation appear to have a Force-wielder causing the damage to the land-speeder. The images of the set of Star Wars Episode 8 are embedded below, enjoy.
