Star Wars Episode VIII may see the return of a key character

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens approaches theatrical release filming for the second in the trilogy, the as yet untitled Episode VIII is underway on the rocky Irish outcrop of Skellig Michael. The island was used in this year's film so a return makes sense.

Added to that, set reports suggest that Mark Hamill is currently filming on the island suggesting that Luke Skywalker will survive the events of The Force Awakens. As yet most of the main cast hasn't been fully confirmed but we're expecting a full rundown reasonably soon given that filming is underway - obviously any casting announcement might be replete with spoilers so take anything, rumour or not with a pinch of salt.
