London: Director Rian Johnson marked the final stretch of Star Wars Episode VIII's production schedule with a fresh image of a grimy cloak.

Rian had a bit of fun when asked on Twitter if this cape belonged to him, teasing: "The crew thought it was weird for the first few months. But eventually they kept thinking it was weird", reported Digital Spy.

'Star Wars: Episode VIII' recently wrapped up some extensive filming in Ireland by placing an advert in The Irish Examiner to thank its crew and locals - complete with a Gaelic translation of "May the Force be with you".

Lucasfilm built a massive 50-foot protective structure around an Irish seaside location to effectively prevent passers-by from getting any useful sneak peeks when filming started on the Emerald Isle a few weeks ago.
