A friend of mine shared a link on Facebook that had me super excited after the teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi was released last week. It said they were looking for extras because filming was taking place near Rapid City.

Unfortunately it was fake news.

WFRV9 says on their "About Us" page that they are a satirical website. Maybe, but this story was just fake.

IMDB lists the upcoming Star Wars flick's status as being in post-production. Most likely that means they aren't filming anything at this point.
