Star Wars 8 set photos reveal Luke Skywalker's Jedi Temple

The final minutes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens saw Rey come face-to-face with Luke Skywalker. It's been widely assumed that the legendary Jedi will be training Daisy Ridley's heroine in Star Wars: Episode 8, which we recently learned is halfway through filming (opens in new tab).

The photos reveal what looks to be an in-construction Jedi temple at the same location we saw at the end of The Force Awakens. Speaking of, the Millennium Falcon is right where we left it too.

The relationship between Luke and Rey is perhaps what I'm most looking forward to seeing in Episode 8. Even if it turns out they're not related, it will be great to finally get some answers on where he's been since Return of the Jedi.

Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Benicio del Toro, Star Wars: Episode 8 opens in cinemas on December 15, 2017.
