    They were keeping a good track of the filming last year, but their rumors this year are kinda off. They were the site that claimed exclusively that Episode VIII will film for 6 weeks on Skellig (which is impossible from any point of view), and now they say it's Kenny Baker, but it isn't.

    The person photographed here doesn't exactly look like Baker.
    http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/star-wars-crew-returns-to-skellig-as-weather-calms-354070.html

    Though 2 days ago Baker appeared in a video and the article said he was hopping a flight to work on The Force Awakens...but there's another movie that makes more sense. Episode VIII.

    So, confusion abounds. There could one short person, or more than one. Who knows? Not me.

    That guy in the photo isn't Kenny Baker. It's Jimmy Vee. Kenny Baker is very old, I would be surprised they would bring him to Skellig.

    Why the return? It seems weird. Was the story for TFA "up in the air enough" that they could grab those four days when they were there? And this is the only place Rey can be trained? Maybe there's some significance to it that I'm missing, it's just weird.

    Thoughts?

    I think they just overbooked in case they had to further postpone the filming due to the weather. Better safe than sorry.

    Rian Johnson favorited fan art of
    Rey as a Jedi Padawan back in May:

    Yes. I think it's quite obvious that Rey is Luke's Padawan :)

    But if we're going by what fan art members of the cast/crew favorited on Twitter, well, Mark Hamill favorited the piece that myself & Venamis conjured up (my avatar) "Showdown At Starkiller Base", which is a duel between Luke & Kylo. Maybe they get to square off in Episode 8?? :D

    Here's hoping for something great in 8! In 7, we get the return of the legends!

    After Luke sacrificing him at the beginning of Episode VIII during an attack on his hideout, Rey escapes and returns at the end of the movie. She is very sad when suddenly Lukes ghost appears.
