Potential Star Wars: The Last Jedi Reshoots Happening Soon?

According to a new report posted on the web, the extras casting agency for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently casting extras and walk-on roles for a major motion picture. Could this be about potential reshoots for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi? Read on to find out.


The site Project Casting (via Omega Underground) is reporting that Universal Extras Casting, the company behind the extras casting for The Last Jedi is “now casting extras and walk-on roles for a major feature film starting this March 2017 in Edinburgh and Scotland, Ireland.”


Whether this casting is for The Last Jedi or not is still unclear. As Project Casting also pointed out, recently the Telegraph reported that Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is expected to start filming in Edinburgh in the next few weeks. So there is a possibility that this casting is for that movie.


However we should keep in mind that in the last few days Mark Hamill has been spotted in the UK, giving more credibility to the report that this casting might be for The Last Jedi after all.





As you probably know, reshoots are a normal part of the filming process that are scheduled even before the actual filming of a movie.


One thing that seems strange is the fact that Rian Johnson and company never filmed in Scotland, and doing reshoots there doesn’t make much sense. As you remember, the Episode VIII cast and crew filmed for several weeks all over Ireland and of course at Pinewood Studios.


Another thing to keep in mind that this casting agency is not the same as the one that is spreading false reports that filming for Star Wars: Episode IX will begin this summer. 🙂



As always, until any official word is revealed by Disney/LFL, treat this info only as a rumor.

    We’re doomed.

      Sir the possibility of successfully navigating reshoots are 3720 to 1!

      Would you like to know the odds of the reshoots being used against us?
      It’s high. It’s very high.

        Then I’ll see you in hell.

        • February 23, 2017 at 8:37 pm

          Congratulations. We are getting reshoots. Please do not resist.

            He can’t hear you. He already turned his taun-taun and marched right out into the blizzard.

            The reshoots are no good to me dead.

      Reshoots? Reshoots? Where?

  • February 23, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    This is normal…

  • February 23, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    Han Solo maybe?

    • February 23, 2017 at 6:46 pm

      Honestly…maybe because of Carrie Fisher. I hope not, but they may need to find a way for her not to be in Episode IX. This is probably not the case from the information provided in the article though.

        They need to find a way to do what is best for the story.

          Having Leia magically disappear in Episode IX would be pretty bad for the story, so….

          • February 24, 2017 at 3:37 am

            There are other ways

          • February 24, 2017 at 1:41 pm

            She could.. just be lost?

  • February 23, 2017 at 6:24 pm

    A lot easier to nip up to Scotland for a similar backdrop to Ireland for the reshoots I would imagine.

  • February 23, 2017 at 7:37 pm

    Although reshoots for “The Last Jedi” will happen soon, I wouldn’t tie them with this casting call. If there were any crowd scenes in Episode VIII, then they are probably finished.

  • February 23, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    Well its official. The Last Jedi will be terrible because everyone knows that reshoots ruin a film 100% of the time.

  • February 23, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    This film is going to drop in May

    “One thing that seems strange is the fact that Rian Johnson and company never filmed in Scotland, and doing reshoots there doesn’t make much sense.”

    Reshoots don’t always mean redoing stuff. Sometimes it means adding new things as well.

  • February 23, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Could be both. Casting call is for avengers and mark is in town for pickups.

  • February 24, 2017 at 6:45 am

    Pick-up photography (“reshoots” is a misleading term) can sometimes include newly written scenes, so maybe there is a new sequence using a Scottish backdrop. Happens all the time.

    I think it’s weird that unless I missed something, We haven’t heard where they are going to shoot Han Solo yet in terms of location shooting if there is going to be any at all? Part of the fun of these new films is seeing them shoot in different places that haven’t been seen much in a studio film and how they adapt that to a new planetary terrain.
