Filming has begun for Star Wars Episode VIII in Dubrovnik and locals have been busy snapping photos and videos throughout the film's early days of production. In the photos below you can clearly see what look to be local guards or police officers, as well as vehicle props under tarps. Website DuList initially uploaded the photos, but although they report Mark Hamill as being on-set, we have to disagree. From the photos shown, it does not look as if Hamill is in any of these shots, not to mention why Luke Skywalker would wear a local security uniform in this particular scene doesn't make much sense - unless he's part of an infiltration team. Here's the original report translated by Google:

"It seems that Mark Hamill was on set today (judging by the picture that we are ‘caught’ from a distance).

As it appears from the pictures, with him there are some troopers that irresistibly reminds of the AT – ST (All Terrain Scout Transport) Commanders, popularly called ‘chicken walkers’, which first appeared in the fifth installment – The Empire Strikes Back.

It is interesting to add that, as DuList learned from sources close to the production, for several days after the shooting locations in the city were hired twenty stuntman and about thirty extras. It seems that they are now at the spas recorded quite interesting scene!"

The stunt video was uploaded to Instagram and the photos they refer to can be found below:

I hope that they will have more of Mark Hamill in this episode. The Force Awakens is good but there wasn't enough of Luke in it which was a bit of a disappointment.
