Principal photography has only just started, but we're already getting our first glimpse at some behind-the-scenes action from Star Wars: Episode VIII. Mark Hamill barely made a dent in The Force Awakens, but he is happy to prove he'll play a big role in the sequel.
This morning, the actor known as Luke Skywalker shared the following photo on his Instagram, showing him on the set with a furry friend in tow.

Not quite the Space Bear I imagined when they announced the working title for Episode VIII, but I have to admit he's pretty cute. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait more than a year for the next installation of the Star Wars franchise, but at least we can look forward to more fun sneak-peek images like this.
'Star Wars: Episode VIII' will be released on December 15, 2017.
