Happy Star Wars Day everyone! May the 4th be with you! What are you doing to celebrate the best holiday in the galaxy? I’ll probably re-watch The Force Awakens for the umpteenth time. Today is a day for all things Star Wars! There are a lot of deals going on so make sure to check the Star Wars site for a list of specials for today.
Keeping the Star Wars excitement up, we’re getting more little tidbits about Episode VIII. Some set pictures have surfaced of them building things up for the original Jedi temple. It’ll be interesting to find out what Luke discovered there and what it means for Rey’s training.
Speaking of Rey’s training, Daisy Ridley’s birthday wasn’t too long ago and Mark Hamill tweeted out the most perfect picture:

Anyone else hoping this makes it into the movie? Clearly artist Edward Pun wants it to happen. He created this perfect fan art:
He’s definitely not the only one who’s taken inspiration from Mark Hamill’s tweet. Plenty of creative artists are imagining Rey’s training in Episode VIII like this.
