Update! Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver Sighted in the UK!

luke-skywalkerLooks like filming for Star Wars: Episode VIII is really about to begin. A few actors and director Rian Johnson already teased about the upcoming production. Now Mark Hamill himself has been spotted in the UK with his now fully grown beard.

 

Looks like the beard is a bit longer but nicely trimmed:

 

 

The guys standing next to him are a British boy band, who are finishing their latest album in the United Kingdom.

 

And here’s just a little peak at the background, the Advertisement says “Central London”.

Update!

 

Adam Driver and Osacar Isaac are now officially in Guiness World Records. Congratulations! They attended the premiere of Zoolander 2 in London.

 

 

Good luck finding them, here is a better picture:

 

 

Thanks @MagnarTheGreat

    Mark Hamill looks like a guy who knows how to enjoy life.

      He seems just like a hell of a nice, genuine person. I work with somebody who has had the pleasure to have met him a couple times. An incredible individual.

      Hmmm, if had been Stansted, I would have been convinced that filming would start on Monday. Since it is Heathrow, filming probably won’t start for a couple more weeks yet. πŸ˜‰

    Have to admit, I was kinda hoping for this movie that he’d have the shorter beard he was sporting at the TFA premiere. Thought he looked really damn cool in those pics (not to mention a lot younger).

    Wasn’t Hamill in the UK for several months during the filming of TFA, only to be in one scene? Maybe he will only be in one scene in VIII. Opening scene shows him sitting down to dinner with Rey. Luke says “I want to train you in the force.” Then Kylo jumps out and puts a lightsaber through Luke’s chest! Hamill pockets a few million bucks!

    There should be a scene just before they leave in the Falcon… where Rey says “Wait a minute… You can’t go back to civilization without a shave” … then she ignites her saber.. . swipe to next scenes. Next time we see Luke he reveals himself and his green saber turns to the camera and he is clean shaven! LOL

        Like the Harry Potter round ones but blue. Like John Lennon used to wear? Awesome. I would pay extra if Luke put those on, casually, when I went to read a note that Rey handed him or something. “Just a moment, let me put on my spectacles” he would say.

    It’s wrong that no official images exist of him from TFA in printed form seeing as how they increduously still have no merchandise of his character and he’s completely MIA from the Visual Guide. If they kill him off in the first 5 minutes then I at least hope we see him as a Jedi spirit for the rest.

      i think we’ll get a fair amount of luke, though i do think he’ll bite it by the end of VIII.

        He should come back for IX if he does as a spirit even if just for one scene like Obi-Wan in Jedi. Just hope it’s not explaining to Rey that Ben is her cousin ala that film.

          completely agree. i’d guess we’ll see luke in action in VIII and force ghost in IX. because at some point it needs to be all on rey, finn and poe to win the day without the jedi master looming over things.

            It’s one of those musts I wanted to see since this new trilogy was announced. People say the old EU served no purpose but I think it showed people why it would be a bad idea having him overshadow his own kid like he did in that and better he goes out with dignity like Obi-Wan. No Jedi in Empire so it would be another way to differentiate itself from that too.

            does it? it was Luke and Anaknin that brought the balance of the force, the whole new Big 3 seems a little forced in that universe if you ask me…

        Thing is, who will do it? I don’t think it makes any story sense for it to be Kylo, after killing Han, killing Luke borders on the rediculous as well as having less impact. Snoke doesn’t seem to be the type to directly get involved in a scrap, and having it just be some random, newly introduced character seems lame.

          snoke v luke wizard battle could work. and i agree about kylo, though we do need some sort of face to face after what he did to both luke’s students and han.

      I donΒ΄t think they will kill him.

        They said this whole trilogy is about the passing of the baton and I’m sure Disney is eager to do just that since they got bent over a barrel by Ford’s agent last time.

          Whatever FordΒ΄s agent asked they have got dozens of times back just in the first week of the movie in theaters, also Ford did a great effort in the film promotion.
          Disney has “stars” in most of their movies, I bet they can handle anyone.

            Hamill wasn’t even given any lines in TFA so he will probably get around the same amount for VIII but if he’s the Ford of the next one and is in IX then he’ll prove he can still open a film and probably want a bigger paycheck as well as profit points. Not like they can repace him at this point either so they’ll be forced to capiulate.

            My point is that I am pretty sure Disney negotiate as you say, but I donΒ΄t feel that the money is a big problem in films that are going to make trillions.

    Luke Skywalker is Dexter Morgan theory:

    He is a member of law enforcement forces but he has a double life/mission (also becoming a jedi).
    Their sister work with them!
    They talk with his passed away mentors (his foster dad in the case of Dexter).
    They use the force for the good, the ends justifies.
    They literally disappeared in the middle of the Ocean, and though dead.
    They abandoned their sibbling to anybody else at the age of 4, Luke paternity is still to be confirmed.
    When we find them again they are hipsters living in a humble place.

          Yea, because if he was talking about Ep. 7 he should of said it was 30 years of memories being retreaded in one two hour slot.

          The ending of Dexter was disappointing, until the other day when I read they were thinking of bringing it back.

            I heard one of the original ideas for the Dexter finale was Dexter waking up on a executioner’s table, seeing the “ghosts” of everyone he killed (or was negligent and caused their death) watching from the observation room, and the entire series is just his life flashing before his eyes as the he fades to black.

            I liked both.
            Each time I watch TFA I like it more, that is a good sign.
            For me, Dexter finale was epic. I am not sure many people liked it, but I did. I prefer he was not dead.
            Being alive, the chances of new seasons are up.

    It’s nice knowing Mark is there, but he was there for the filming of Ep. 7, and that did us a lot of good.

    Wait, I’m critiquing Ep. 7. Da, da, da, here comes TUD and American Ignorant, we’ve come to defend the honor of J.J. and all things episode 7.

    On a more serious note, I hope to Yoda’s ghost that they do something new and cool in this episode.

      he was only in the movie for a couple minutes for story reasons, they’ve explained this. the only reason we thought luke would be in it more is because we wanted it, not because JJ or kennedy said he would be.

      • February 7, 2016 at 2:46 am

        I can understand the story reasons, but I still think it would have been good to see more Luke in the flashback scene. Imagine you are someone who is completely new to Star Wars, you hear all about this great hero “Luke Skywalker”, but have no idea who he is or what he looks like. Then you get to the end of the film and Rey sees this weird old guy for about 30 seconds – would be a bit strange.

        Anyway, I hope he’s got a big role in the next two.

          i agree about the flashback, seeing(even briefly) his first duel with vader would have been awesome. anyway, i actually think the reveal works better for people new to star wars then us OG fans who were waiting for our childhood hero to appear. i mean in empire we heard about yoda being this great jedi master and he turns out to be this two feet tall old man. same thing with luke. the great and legendary luke skywalker is nothing more then an old hermit these days. i like it when they play with expectations like that. πŸ™‚

          Why should anyone start Star Wars with Ep.7? Do you read a book from the end to the beginning?

          • February 8, 2016 at 12:35 pm
            Permalink

            I remember JJ saying something about wanting the movie to work as a stand alone movie, as well as part of the big picture. I know that was at least a consideration. I’m sure that The Force Awakens was the first Star Wars film for many people, and this was one of the reasons they dropped the “Episode 7” label from most of the marketing, so it wouldn’t put new viewers off seeing it.

            Starting with Episode 7 isn’t like reading a book from end to beginning though, as Episode 7 isn’t the end, and I doubt someone would then watch 6, then 5, etc.
