STAR WARS: J.J. Abrams, Mark Hamill & Daisy Ridley Snapped Near Kerry Set
Star Wars: Episode VII has concluded its 3-day shoot in County Kerry, Ireland. Director J.J. Abrams flew into Kerry on Monday with about 15 members of the cast and crew, and were then driven to Portmagee to stay in a hotel in Waterville. Though some of the crew were snapped from a distance setting up on the island of Skellig Michael, nobody was able to get a pic of Mark Hamill or any other cast members in costume, shooting scenes. But, we do have the below images taken around Waterville. The fact that Hamill and young British actress Daisy Ridley (believed to be playing Luke Skywalker's niece) were reportedly the only two main cast members present, has led to speculation that the Island will be used as the planet/location where Luke has been in self imposed isolation, and where he will be found again by Ridley's character.
Though not actually pictured filming scenes for Star Wars: Episode VII on Skellig Michael off the coast of Kerry, the trio were spotted nearby. Now that it's been confirmed that Ridley is shooting there, it gives way to interesting speculation as to what these scenes will entail..
