Newswire: At least filming on Star Wars: Episode VIII seems to be going well

About a week ago, word came out that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was undergoing extensive reshoots, with some reports blaming it on a desire to lighten the tone or polish up some of the action. Over on the numbered Star Wars movies, though, things seem to be going a little bit better. As reported by Collider, Star Wars: Episode VIII director Rian Johnson recently posted a message on Tumblr saying that the filming—which kicked off in February—is “in the home stretch.” Alongside that short note, Johnson included a photo of some filming equipment, rocky architecture, and what appears to be the Jedi robe that Luke was wearing at the end of The Force Awakens (or at least a similar one).
