There’s still a long wait before the next Star Wars movie hits theaters. The next installment in the saga doesn’t even have an official name, and there are no trailers for it just yet. Set to debut in mid-December 2017, Episode VIII is currently filming so we’ll have to wait for Disney to release marketing materials for the movie before we get any real clues as to what’s going on. However, a new set of images shows a set from the next Star Wars film for the first time.

As we’ve already seen in some clips showing the special effects behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams opted for complex props that help actors during shooting, rather than relying solely on green screens. And we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII will follow along the same lines.

Discovered by Games Radar, the images below were posted on Instagram as captured in Dubrovnik, Croatia, where some Star Wars scenes are shot.

As The Dubrovnik Times explains, the scenes were apparently shot on Stradun street in the city center, where doors are being dressed up to create a new world in a galaxy far, far away. It’s not clear at this time what scenes are being filmed in this particular location, or which actors are going to be in the scenes.

Check out the images for yourself, and if you’re in Dubrovnik you can even go pay a visit.
