Fresh off his BAFTA win, John Boyega is back to work on Star Wars: Episode VIII.

The actor took home the Rising Star award yesterday and announced that he’d be back on set early in the morning to begin the next movie.

“Tomorrow's my first day on set. There's a 6am pick up and then I go straight to doing Star Wars stuff again.”

The actor who plays Finn also joked that since he’s in the middle of moving, he’s not quite sure where he’ll put his award, joking that it’ll “look great on the Millennium Falcon.”

Unfortunately, he didn’t give anything away about the upcoming film, but did reveal that he plans to grab a few props this time around.

“I'm going to go back for what's mine this time. I'll definitely get all the props I want, a lightsaber, Finn's jacket and various other things.”

The title for the next film has not been released, but the movie will hit theaters December 17, 2017.
