We know next-to-nothing about Star Wars: Episode VIII, but thanks to writer/director Rian Johnson’s Twitter account, we’ve learned a few minor details about the upcoming movie. For example, it will be shot on 35mm film. And it may or may not include this incredible sequence Johnson dreamed up.

Johnson is best known for directing Looper and Brick, as well as some of the most memorable Breaking Bad episodes ever made. (He’s responsible for “Ozymandias.”) A Jedi-canine battle in a canoe may not end up making the final cut of Star Wars: Episode VIII, but hey, you never know.
