STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Heading To Ireland

It's been confirmed that J.J. Abrams will be bringing his Star Wars cast and crew to the Emerald Isle to shoot scenes at "Skellig Michael", off the coast of County Kerry. More past the jump..


The Office of Public Works (OPW) has confirmed to a local publication that Disney/Lucasfilm will be shooting scenes for Star Wars: Episode VII off the coast of Co. Kerry in Ireland. Apparently they'll be filming around Skellig Michael (Irish: Sceilig Mhichíl) -- an island in the Atlantic Ocean, 11.6 km west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry. The Skellig is an impressive sight to behold, and is also home to some ancient Christian Monastic ruins which could no doubt be utilized for some atmospheric shots. Star Wars: Episode VII began shooting earlier this year in Abu Dhabi and London, but it's not yet known when filming will commence in Kerry. The movie is scheduled for release on December 18th, 2015.
