In Case You Were Wondering

Well,  maybe you weren’t wondering.   But I’m the kind of guy who looks at a movie and wonders “where’d they put the camera?”

So if you’re are wondering how – or more importantly where – they shot the scenes of Luke Skywalker’s ancient Jedi Temple in “The Last Jedi,” here’s your answer.

A rocky island called Skellig Michael, 7 miles off the coast of Ireland, served as the location for the final scene at the end of  “Episode VI, The Force Awakens.”

But the site is much to fragile to accomodate the rigors of a lengthy location shoot, so the 7th-century dry masonry beehive huts of the abandoned  monastery  on Skellig Michael were recreated on a cliff over the Atlantic Ocean on Ireland’s Dingle Peninsula.

Dont bother looking for the location now, though.  Everything was struck from the site once the filming was completed.


Wasn't that entertaining and informative? Why not share it around the web?
