In today’s edition of Episode 8 Bits:

  • Oscar Isaac continues comparing Star Wars: Episode 8 to an independent film.
  • John Boyega praises his new co-star Kelly Marie Tran.
  • Carrie Fisher is heading to Star Wars Celebration.
  • Footage of Daisy Ridley on set has shown up online.
  • A very interesting airport arrival time…
  • Pictures of the Millennium Falcon being constructed in Ireland.
  • Notes on Lucasfilm’s security on the Irish sets.
  • Will Ireland allow some of the sets to stay standing as tourist attractions?
  • A rumor about IMAX cameras…and an accident.

Oscar Isaac has been doing press for X-Men: Age of Apocalypse, which means that he’s been fielding a lot of questions about Star Wars: Episode 8. Collider caught up with Isaac at a screening of Apocalypse in London and the man behind Poe Dameron explained how his day had gone:

Today, Poe was doing a very cool stunt in Pinewood, and then I took a nap and came here.

Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight managed to snag a slightly more detailed answer from Isaac, who explained why Episode 8 reminds him of an independent film:

Obviously it’s this huge, huge thing but it’s more about the quality of what it feels like to film specially with the new additions to the cast, like Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro, they’re incredible actors and Rian [Johnson], his sensibility is one of smaller films. So, within all of the bigness and the epic scope of the film, it does feel like we’re getting to find some of that nuance and that intimacy.

And since this the middle chapter of a trilogy, Isaac went on to promise that everyone is going to the crap kicked out of them:

Poe, he gets to be more a part of the story, and all of the characters in the film, they get tested, intensely. It’s a lot of conflict in it, which is great.

Oscar Isaac may not be saying much, but a family driving by the set in Ireland managed to snag a brief video of Daisy Ridley on set. Her costume hasn’t appeared to have changed much, but how about that gorgeous coastline? Anyway, the best thing about this video is just how excited the girls behind the camera are to see Rey in person. It’s adorable and proof that having female leads in movies like this truly matters.

Meanwhile, others took to Twitter to report that Chewbacca has been reportedly sighted at the Malin Head locations in Ireland, which makes sense. He did accompany Rey to Luke’s secret hideout.

But most importantly, another Twitter user managed to snap a few shots of what certainly looks like the Millennium Falcon being constructed on the rocky coats of Malin Head. That’s quite an image when taken by a cameraphone at a distance with workmen still around. Imagine how that’s going to look in camera.

And while we’re here, how about one more? This one isn’t as close as the previous pictures, but it really does show off the gorgeous Irish landscapes that the Episode 8 crew has been utilizing for Ahch-To.

All of these photos arrive on the heels of an Irish Examiner report claiming that production was taking special considerations to keep fans from photographing the sets:

A ring of steel has been erected around some of the country’s most scenic coastal landscapes. Along with dozens of security guards, film bosses have brought in a wi-fi blocker to ensure drones cannot be used.

Donegal County Council said some roads were closed to the public until Monday.

The IAA warned unauthorised drones may be seized by gardaí “as evidence for potential prosecution and in the interest of aviation safety.”

To be fair, security will certainly step up in a huge way once construction is finished and more of the major actors begin arriving to shoot their scenes. At the same time, there were reports of tourists flooding the area far in advance of filming so they could try to sneak a peek at what’s going on. Lucasfilm security is going to be beating Star Wars fans back with wooden sticks.
