Star Wars: Episode VIII is about a year away, but that hasn’t slowed any of the rampant speculation about what’s to come. It’s a testament to just how many unanswered questions we have following The Force Awakens. And while we don’t have much in the way of footage or trailers, that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been other content to pique our collective interest.
We’re of course referring to the various photos from Episode VIII‘s set that have released over the last few months. While we’re short on exact story details, these set photos have given us at least a general idea of where the next story will be taking place. From Skellig Michael in Ireland to Dubrovnik in Croatia, it looks like we’ll be exploring some brand new corners of the Star Wars universe. So without further ado, here’s what we’ve learned so far.
1. The first Jedi temple
We only saw a brief glimpse of Skellig Michael in the closing moments of The Force Awakens, but if new set photos from Twitter are any indicator, Rey’s going to be going all-in on her Jedi training there. We know Luke went to the still-unnamed planet in search of the first Jedi Temple, and what we see above looks to be a set of ruins. There’s certainly no better place to learn the ways of the Force than the home of the ancient Jedi Order. It’ll be intriguing to say the least as we get a better look at what secrets the island has in store for our heroes.
