It's now been so long since The Force Awakens was released that Star Wars fans everywhere are going into a state of cationic shock from the lack of Force news. Disney and Lucasfilm's fairly successful attempts to keep details about Star Wars 8 under wraps has meant that there's surprisingly little to keep us going until its release in December 2017. They can't keep everything from us though. Thanks to some sneaky fan snaps, royal visits, and a director who likes to commemorate milestones with photographs, there are some set photos from Star Wars 8 floating around online, so we've put them all together in one feature for you to enjoy. Get clicking to see the spectacular, the tame, and the barely recognisable, with over 50 Star Wars 8 set photos. 

Check out our Star Wars 8 page for more comprehensive info about trailers, release date, cast, plot, theories and much, much more.

D'awwww. This pic is courtesy of Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. And yep. we're so jealous of her French Bulldog Gary right now. SO jealous.

Rey actress, Daisy Ridley's giving very little away here but her Instagram shot of Episode 8 shooting is still very much appreciated. This looks like a behind the scenes shot of Anch-To where Rey found Luke in The Force Awakens.

Episode 8 director Rian Johnson is officially a tease but we love BB-8 in all forms. Even in this adorable drawing in the dust of a truck on set. It's officially 1000% better than 'wash me.'

Luke Skywalker's Jedi robes

The most recent image from the set of Star Wars 8 comes courtesy of director, Rian Johnson and his Tumblr page. To commemorate the fact that filming is almost complete on the sequel, he shared this picture of some Jedi robes. Now, he doesn't actually say they're Luke Skywalker's but they do look an awful lot like the robes Mark Hamill was wearing at the end of The Force Awakens, no?

Here's the man himself! Released by Disney and Lucasfilm, this on-set shot of Rian Johnson (plus camera and cameraman) shows the director hard at work filming Star Wars 8. On set. In Ireland. So, it definitely counts. Yes, it does!

Star Wars droid or set equipment?

Anyone who follows Rian Johnson on Twitter knows that he likes to play a game called, 'Is it a Star Wars droid or set equipment?' Either way, it's from the set of Star Wars 8 so feast your eyes. 

Control panel (plus crossword)

What's this now? A Star Wars newspaper? No. But if you look under the newspaper you'll see a Star Wars control panel full of blinking lights. We know how to treat you around here, don't we?

Maz Kanata is back

Maz Kanata is back in action, as Rian Johnson shares a snap of Lupita Nyong'o's mysterious character from the set of Episode 8. We presume that's the actress in the background hard at work, but it's kind of hard to tell. 

Erm... part of a spaceship?

Continuing the black and white trend, the director also shared this snap of Cinematographer Steve Yedlin standing in what looks like part of a ship's cockpit, saying: "Hard to believe we’re wrapping up week four already, it’s just flying by."
