Rumor on Kylo Ren and more Knights of Ren Filming Photos for Star Wars: Episode VIII

CeannSibeal25

 

Early yesterday we mentioned reports that claim that Adam Driver has been spotted with the rest of the cast and crew at Kerry. Now the guys from MakingStarWars have another description of an action scene that involves warriors, a crashed ship and an important person. Read on for more!

 

 

 

This description and images below are very spoilerific so beware!!!

 

MakingStarWars is reporting details of another warrior type scene that involves medieval looking knights, a crashed ship and maybe even Kylo Ren. They believe the medieval warriors could be the Knights of Ren.

 

From MakingStarWars:
The text below is what was witnessed:

  • There is smoke.
  • A ship appears to have crashed.
  • A group of men dressed as black knights with black helmets approach the smokey debris.
  • All of the knights then kneel around the smokey location.
  • It appears as if one of the knights perished in the crash or someone important is about to step out of it.

 

Recently, we learned juicy rumors of scenes being filmed that involve these medieval looking warriors with black helmets. One particular difference here is the mention of an important character stepping out of what appears to be a crashed ship. This character description from MSW seems to ironically correspond with the recent Kerry’sEye report of the arrival of actor Adam Driver – who plays the villain Kylo Ren.

While information and details still remain sketchy, these battle sequences all seem to connect with Kylo Ren’s rumored pursuit of Rey and Luke Skywalker on the remote island getaway.  Obviously, a reprise of the spectacular fight between Rey and Kylo from ‘The Force Awakens’ is something a lot of fans want to see, once Rey has enhanced her skills with the lightsaber. With any luck, we also will see a much older looking Luke Skywalker getting in on some of the action as well.

 

 

That said, we probably can expect a significant setback for our heroes or villains in Star Wars: Episode VIII – y’know, whatever the case may be, we really hope that these filmed scenes are spectacular in every aspect.

Also, some pictures from the beautiful set have surfaced of what looks to be part of a set recreation for the Ahch-To shoot in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

A JCF member named Django Fett with comments and thoughts from nightangel shared these photos of the filming location at Ceann Sibeal.  The member noted that there was some filming going earlier of a chase scene between Rey and Kylo. He said:

[There were] filming the KoR chasing Luke from a beach (shot elsewhere) up over the ridge and onto the down slope you can see. Apparently Kylo will chase Rey from the opposite direction down from the little castle building…

nightangle responded with

For me it looked like a gathering of the KoR and they were surrouned by fire&smoke. Maybe they attacked Luke’s place.

This seems to match the information MSW just described regarding this sequence!

 

Here are the photos:

Also a video of the filming has surfaced: Courtesy of youtuber ian57812

 

 

 

Of course, with these new details comes questions:

How much of the film will involve the Ach-To set with the Knights of Ren, Kylo , Rey and Luke Skywalker? 

 

The scene description above also mentions what appears to be and important person stepping out of a crashed ship.

 

Could this be the Benicio del Toro character who is rumored to be a villain in Star Wars: Episode VIII? 

 

Before we get excited that this is the case, keep in mind that del Toro hasn’t been seen or even rumored in the area. The only actors part of the Ireland shoot, that we know of so far are Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Joonas Suotamo (Peter Mayhew’s stand in for the more dynamic scenes).

Star Wars: Episode VIII will hit theaters December 2017.

May the Force be with you…

 

Thanks again to the guys and gals over at JCF for the spectacular photos

    As I can remember in TFA, they show Luke´s map completed with R2D2 to many people in the Resistance “control room”…
    If Kylo do again the job he did with Rey, just with one person in that room he will have Luke´s location.
    Or may be they have a mole.

      I questioned that decision at the time – not only do they reveal the map in front of basically everyone, they then all line up to give Rey and co a big send off. If Luke wanted to be found by everyone, he would have left a return address.

      Also, did Leia learn nothing from the destruction of Death Star 1? The Empire Struck Back, what does she think the First Order will do?! They should be preparing!

        The meetings of the First Order are Snoke and Hux and Kylo.
        So I wonder they wanted to make a difference with it, showing the Resistance more as a colective.
        But I think they have made a little favour to Luke and Rey!

        I believe most probably Resistance is moving to a different secret location just after TFA.
        But I guess their new problems will be related to the fact that they are the only left of the New Republic.
        I mean, they had a great victory over First Over, but the First Order annihilated the Republic first.

        I don’t think Luke ever intended to be found. As Han mentioned, those who knew him best believed that he set off in search of the first Jedi temple. The map is actually just to the location of the temple on Ahch-To and they are making the valid assumption that Luke is at the location, knowing his former intentions. He never actually left a map with the intention of others finding him one day. That’s how I read it anyway. I just think if Luke wanted to be found by Leia, he would have told her where he was instead of setting up a mystery for her to solve.

          A fair point, but I still think it’s a pretty big risk revealing Luke’s location to everyone, when the First Order wants to find him and destroy him.

      Absolutely… that was something I was really looking forward to in TFA. You’d think if Kylo was “Master of the Knights of Ren” that he’d send them to do things like fetching BB-8, or Rey, rather than inept stormtroopers.

        It better be a good explanation other than they were all frozen in carbonite or had force amnesia. Luckily, I think Johnson is above using those types of tropes.

      I think it’s because the supreme leader was putting Kylo through the ultimate test to see if he was worthy enough to complete his training. Was he strong enough to resist being seduced to the light? Or would he fail as his grandfather did.

          THROUGH EXCESSIVE MEDITATION AND ALGERBRAIC EQUATIONS, THIS IS WHAT I HAVE DEDUCED!!
          With their help it would defeat the purpose of the test Snoke was putting Kylo through. The supreme leader may not be Sith..but giving Ben the task of dealing with his father unassisted..and waiting to see how he reacts with the opportunity to revert back to the light..was sort of like an experiment to him. “By the grace of your training I will not be seduced.” “We shall see..we shall see.” Saying we shall see sounds like he knows what he’s risking. With Ben rejecting his father it proved him worthy enough to perhaps be Snoke’s apprentice or (main bitch) and begin the next step to the evolution of the Sith..or whatever they’re going to call themselves now.

      Yeah, It thought that was odd too. It feels like they were probably cut. Surely that little vision Rey had wasn’t it?

      And what kind of lame Jedi did Luke train in 30 damn years? If that scene in the rain is the Jedi Temple massacre then there were a lot of Jedi, they are all over the ground. Really crawls my ass that we only get a glimpse of Luke’s efforts at bringing back the Jedi in a lame dream sequence that includes some wet dudes that don’t even show up in the movie and who are led by a dark-side brat who can’t even defeat a newbie scavenger in single combat. What a smack in the face to Luke and his accomplishments.

      And I guess when Luke told Leia that she would learn to use the force too he just meant she would learn to feel it when people she knows die while schleping around control rooms looking at fancy maps. Not training Leia as a Jedi Knight was a big mistake. It was suggested at the end of ROTJ. It’s like JJ never saw the movie or did and wanted to shit all over it.

      I love Rey though, damn. That smile and those dimples. She really helped carry the movie for me. Loved the Jakku scenes.

        Yeah, It really sounded like they cut out a lot of good stuff there.

        Especially since they went out of their way to tell everyone how much weight Hamill lost and was back in training.

        I’m guessing due to Fisher’s health problems. She look good in Austin Powers about 20 years ago which is when they should have made this film.

        This film would probably have tanked had they cast another actress.

    Saw Force Awakens again on On Demand. It gets worse with each viewing, which I’ve been hoping wasn’t the case. It’s amazing how lazy the story is, and it absolutely nosedives when they reach Maz’s castle. Hopefully Rian Johnson can right the ship.

      It feels like another film soon as they land on Takodana. I blame that on the rushed production, They should have rewritten everything from that point on. While the Jakku stuff wasn’t the most original, The pacing was much better as well as more interesting than what came afterward.

          I find the other films more rewatchable since they have at least one all new planetary terrain when the only new one you see in this one is the one up above which we see for less than a minute.

        The reason it feels like another film is the same reason so many other Act II segments fall apart: the goal wasn’t set up in Act 1 properly. The droid is needed. Then it’s not needed. Maz is crucial. Then she’s not crucial since the Resistance arrives anyway. Then the lightsaber is discovered without discussing how. Then a ground war breaks out and stops. Then it starts up again. Then Poe shoots every tie fighter out of the sky. IT’S ALL OVER THE PLACE.

        Dude, The Blair Witch Project is the greatest piece of trash ever and it is an insult to horror movies everywhere and yet that piece of filth was widely acclaimed by critics and Rotten Tomatoes even gave it a review of 86% while Avatar which is the most highest grossing movie ever recieved 83% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. You can’t just use positive reviews to say TFA was perfect as it was just a lame rehash of ANH. Rotten Tomatoes rated Bad Boys 2 a mear 23% when this movie was a financial success that almost doubled the money that the first one made. Die Hard With A Vengeance was rated 51% yet this movie was the highest-grossing film of 1995 and Final Destination grossed tons of money as well and it was highly acclaimed by horror fans to the point that it received various awards yet Rotten Tomatoes gave it an extremly low rating of 33%. If you love TFA then that’s fine with me but don’t expect every SW fan to think that a simple rehash is better than anything that Lucas made. At least the PT which is hated by many fans worldwide was original and it has much re-watching value unlike TFA which is just the product of fan hype. When the wind blows and the hype dies down, this Death Star 3.0 movie is going to be considered the worst SW film ever.

          The rehash complaint is tired and done to death. People saw the positive critical and popular response to the movie (particularly prequel apologists) and needed to drum that up as a critical flaw that made the film fail. Sure, the films have similar elements, but it’s still an immensely fun and exciting piece of entertainment with characters we can actually feel something for and care about after three films which gave us nothing to care about. None of that makes the film a failure. All these movies echo one another. That’s the set hero’s journey formula, and the similarity complaint is as old as the release of Empire. Episode 1 had every bit the similarity to ANH as TFA did, it even ends on the exact same shot. But because Phantom had a very different look, the comparisons are overlooked. The Force Awakens had to be similar, because it was reviving Star Wars after 3 movies that drove the franchise off a cliff. It was bringing people back to the type of Star Wars movie that made Star Wars great and memorable to begin with, and it sets up a new trilogy that will take us in a new direction.

          The Blair Witch project spawned a totally new horror genre, the found footage. It was fresh, original, and extremely well executed. You could practically feel the fear of the actors. Not to mention, it had one of the most ingenious marketing campaigns ever, people thought those missing people posters were genuine.

          Midi-chlorians aside, what was so ground breaking original about the PT?

            –Usage of computer generated effects shot (before TPM, CGI only compromised about 500 shots, and nobody could even think it could ever be done.)

            –digital film.

            Lars Von Trier’s “The Idiots” (1998) was shot entirely with digital cameras .

            “The idea that a “prequel” could be used as a sequel of sorts and still make money.”

            The Godfather Part II (1974), arguably the greatest sequel/prequel movie ever made.

            “Usage of computer generated effects shot (before TPM, CGI only compromised about 500 shots, and nobody could even think it could ever be done.)”

            I can’t really argue about that, even though that was the trajectory CGI technology was heading towards since the ’80s, e.g. Tron, The Last Straighter, Flight of the Navigator, etc.

            So what was so groundbreaking original about the PT story or plot?

      I agree, It’s not like the other SW films that I can watch over and again. Even the prequels have a certain charm and longevity to them where I keep revisiting them. TFA just gets more generic every time I watch it. It’s like a fun Disneyland ride that was fun the first time around, but the fan service and lack of building a true and original sw universe really cripples the re-watch ability. That said, the actors are good enough to save the next couple if the writers and directors get it right..I used to like JJ, and still maybe do as a director only, but I’m starting to think he cannot tell a story or write an original script worth a damn.

      Agree with what everybody is saying here — drop in quality after Maz’s castle, lack of effective world-building, story likely suffered from a rushed production — and how this makes it less enjoyable on repeated viewings.

      Having said that, I think JJ nailed the most important part of TFA, which was the casting and establishing a group rapport. His casting choices were inspired and the characterizations were for the most part really strong. So while i have misgivings about TFA as a movie experience, it’s a great set-up for the story to follow — Johnson et al can have fun building out the universe and give these characters more to do.

        Good point. It’s an excellent cast. I think maybe one character too many. I think Poe Dameron could’ve had a smaller “Wedge” role in this film and then expand in the next film. Making him the “best fighter in the galaxy” limits him already. Where do you go from there?

        Look at the original three posters. They aren’t cluttered and neither are their stories. Look at the one-sheet for Force Awakens: cluttered as can been, and I believe this lack of focus carries over to the movie.

      Luke starts a new Jedi Order that gets wiped out by one pupil and all this happens off screen. What’s worse is the one pupil that manages to wipe out the New Jedi Order is beaten in one on one combat by an untrained scavenger? It was called Return of the Jedi, not Return of the Soon to be Killed Off Again Jedi. Going back to Luke being the only Jedi is super lame. I really enjoyed the movie but there were things about it that really made me scratch my head.

        The problem is that the First Order is already achieving its goals of spreading tyranny across the galaxy. Luke is sitting this one out. That’s why “finding the droid that leads Luke” comes off as weak. What I wish they would’ve done is based it all on Rey from the get-go:

        Luke is an old man now much like Ben Kenobi was in Star Wars. It’s not Luke that’s a threat. It’s Luke TRAINING A YOUNG PROTEGE that’s the threat. That’s why I wish the catalyst of this film would’ve been Rey discovering she had the force by accident. Remember the scene in the first XMEN movie where Magneto is watching his parents being marched off to the death camp? It’s so horrible he ends up bending metal with his thoughts? I was hoping for that kind of “a-ha” moment with Rey on Jakku, where it kind of freaks her out a bit. From this, we could’ve cut to the First Order and Snoke and Kylo: “There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?” The “awakening” then would’ve been Rey using the force for the first time and sending a “tremor.”

        The goal then for the First Order would’ve been simple and clear: Don’t let her get to Skywalker for training. While the goal for the Resistance would be the opposite: Get Rey to Skywalker for training. It would also up the stakes for her rescue from Skywalker base.

        The beauty of the original films was they were basically pretty simple but still kept to the logic of the mythology they established. I feel like a big opportunity was missed here.

          This all sounds OK to me. It could have been Rey trying to get to the New Jedi Temple (in a secret location) for training and the First Order trying to stop her from getting there. Absolutely no need to kill all the Jedi AGAIN. I’m not saying there should have been thousands of them but Luke could have trained at least 50-100 or so with the help of a gifted student or two, he had 30 years. There could have been a few dozen full fledged Knights with a few Masters on the New Jedi Council. Now we’re back to square one with everything resting on the shoulders of one new protagonist. It’s the same damn story all over again. I dig the idea of a New Jedi order, secluded, staying out of politics (that’s what led to the fall of the last Jedi Order) with Leia as their contact in the resistance. They step in for very specific, high risk missions on Leia’s request with Leia herself having reached Knight status.

          Another big let down was Leia not being trained as a Knight. She’s obviously learned to listen to the force but to not train her as a Jedi was a big mistake considering how powerful she is with the force and how Jedi-worthy candidates were in short supply. I didn’t want to see her turning front flips or anything having her as a rep from the Jedi Order and leader of the resistance would have been killer. Maybe she deflects a little blaster fire and force pushes a trooper out an airlock or something. One of the most powerful force users in the galaxy is frumping around control rooms looking at halo-maps. Lame. Give Leia a GD saber!

          They made the First Order powerful by making The Resistance dumb and weak which was just lazy storytelling.

        How did he get past Luke too?

        Really…..RT? Snowpiercer has a 95% there. IMO Episode VII blew that shit movie out of the water. RT sucks. Better to justify a movie based on its merits rather than just lazy bandwagoning.

          You call it bandwagoning. I call it a “consensus”. Heard of that?

      There was a lot of balancing saucers in the production of this film. You can’t afford Homer-caliber storytelling if you want to engage the modern era of film viewers who need a proper introduction into the franchise. And it did very well for itself without stepping on too many feet IMO

    I still think del Toro is Thrawn. The end of Aftermath leads me to believe that Thrawn is the one who wisely brings the Imperial remnant into the unknown regions of the galaxy. Now that the First Order has re-emerged in TFA, I think that Thrawn makes a re-appearance with the hidden Imperial fleet.

      Trying not to get my hopes up but I want this to be the case so bad. If we could only save ONE character from the EU, lets make thrawn return

      We already have Thrawn. He exists in three great EU books. There’s no need to bring him into this storyline.

    These rumors have got me wondering if the vision Rey had of Luke kneeling by R2 and the Knights of Ren standing in the rain may have been the future rather than what we assumed to be the past.

      Totally! I didn’t even think of this.

      Didn’t R2 stay at the rebel base, though? I suppose he could arrive there at some point but it seems unlikely if he didn’t come along in the first place.

          Ah, derp, you’re right. I was remembering the scenes where they leave, and R2 isn’t present and it isn’t implied that he’s even coming along, but there he is just standing there under the Falcon once they’ve landed, haha

            Yeah I never said it couldn’t be a flash forward, I just forgot that R2 came along for the ride to find Luke as he isn’t prominent at all in those scenes.

    Many plot holes to be filled in 8! They can make peace with me if they’ll give me a EU powered Luke kicking the snot out of these KOR. After all, how mighty can they be when they have the weakest, whiniest baddie as a leader in Ben Ren!

    Wait a minute.. They’re saying KoR in chasing Luke Skywalker? So, now we have Luke hiding out on an Island after abandoning his friends and Allies unannounced and now he’s running from the enemy? I effing hope not. :/

      I’m not sure there anything that suggests he “abandoned” anyone. Han tells Finn and Rey that he went looking for the first Jedi temple. Who really knows what he was doing there? Who really knows what tasks he was engaged in?

    While I’m excited about this scene I can’t help but fear the “you’re my father” crap from a previous “script leak” that discussed this scene.
