Oscar Isaac plays Poe Dameron, ‘the best damn pilot in the galaxy.’

Actor Oscar Issac says the heroes in Star Wars: Episode VIII will be tested as it’s the darker second chapter in the series. A leaked image also reveals that the film could be titled Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance.

Production on the project is underway and the movie will see Isaac reprise the role of Poe Dameron alongside Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, reported Femalefirst.

“In the new film, there’s a lot more to do. What happens now is the heroes get tested. All three of them (Dameron, Daisy Ridley’s Rey and John Boyega’s Finn) get tested immensely... BB-8 gets tested too! Everybody gets tested! It’s the dark second chapter, but not really dark,” Issac said.

Rian Johnson has replaced JJ Abrams as the director for Episode VIII. This will be the fourth feature film of his career and his first since the success of Looper back in 2012.
