Star Wars: Episode 8 is still months away, but we are already getting some titillating reports indicating a film that’s possibly more intense ad combat-heavy than Episode 7.
According to the guys at Making Star Wars, who have seen photos from the set of Episode 8, there will be a big fight scene that will include the Knights of Ren and feature famous characters from The Force Awakens.
You should probably stop reading if you don’t like spoilers…
The lightsabre fight scene is said to involve Luke Skywalker and Rey as the go up against Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren.
Apparently, Kylo Ren manages to find his two adversaries at Ahch-To — the planet shown at the end of The Force Awakens. Luke Skywalker might have gotten old, but he’s still among the most powerful force-users in the Star Wars universe.
Making Star Wars is often right with their leaks, so the rumored fight scene in Episode 8 could very well be true. We’ll just have to bide our time until the movie releases in December 2017 to see how it all unfolds. What do you hope to see?

Look Out For Many Easter Eggs In Venom Movie
Easter eggs are scattered throughout this Marvel Comics adaptation.
Despite Venom’s history as one of Spider-Man’s most popular nemesis, not being in the same cinematic universe as the webs-linger leaves his movie precariously isolated in this era of interconnected blockbusters. Fortunately, even though there isn’t likely to be any acknowledgement or direct references to Spider-Man, the character has a rich history in the comic book world to draw from
Director Ruben Fleischer assured viewers, especially comic book fans, in an interview with Fandango that the Venom movie will contain a few subtle and not-so-subtle nods to the source material, stating:
“I definitely tried to pepper in Easter eggs throughout the film. Some are more obvious than others. I’m excited for fans of the comics to see the movie.”
Look no further than the third trailer (shown above) for one of the Easter eggs, which features a threat issued by Eddie Brock after merging with the Venom symbiote that was pulled straight from the pages of an Amazing Spider-Man comic book. Fleischer added:
“Even a line that’s featured in the trailer: ‘Eyes, lungs, pancreas. So many snacks, so little time,’ is directly taken from the comics. It was exciting to me that people recognized that and appreciated that.”
The new Venom movie also includes some nods to the franchise’s future, and as the first installment of Sony’s Universe of Marvel Characters, sows the seeds for potential spinoffs.
Keep an eye out during the post-credits sequence.
