A couple of days after the Star Wars cast and crew have left Dubrovnik after filming scenes for episode eight a new video of the filming has emerged. The video shows an explosion on the main street through the old city, the Stradun, as a group of people in a cafe bar run for cover. It appears that the video was taken during the first rehearsals of filming as none of the extras are in costume.
Filming for Star Wars VIII in Dubrovnik began on the 9th of March and lasted until the 16th of March; however the first few days were rehearsals for the main filming. Unfortunately none of the main stars in the latest Star Wars arrived in Dubrovnik. There were rumours that Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley would turn up however these were unfounded. Many action scenes and stunts were filmed in Dubrovnik, as can be seen from this video, including crashing spaceships and even a huge horse-like creature was used in some scenes.
