    Back in October 2015 we reported that it's very likely that Star Wars will return to Ireland in 2016. The information came from official documents showing that Lucasfilm may apply for permission to film there between January and May 2016. Now Katleen Kennedy herself confirmed publicly that indeed Star Wars will be back for more filming in Kerry...

    From Kerry's Eye (via Cantina member MagnarTheGreat):

    For some time now there are rumors suggesting that the crew will film in the surrounding areas of Skellig Michael. As you know there are huge difficulties filming on the World Heritage Island and the areas around Dingle seem like the perfect fit for a Skellig Michael stand in. Here are some images from Dingle:




    It seems that the aquatic planet, named Ahch-to, where Luke is trying to find the first Jedi Temple will have a bigger role than initially expected. During the filming on Skellig Michael last year, it was rumored that Daisy filmed a scene there, training with a weapon. Many people assumed that this planet will serve as a training ground to Rey in a similar fashion as Dagobah. But what if Rey and Luke go together in search of this lost Jedi Temple on Ahch-to? While this sounds really interesting, there is one tiny problem. Star Wars: Rebels already explored something similar in the episode 'Path of the Jedi', where Kanan and Ezra travel to a Jedi Temple on Lothal, where Bridger can test his readiness to be trained as a Jedi. But who knows, maybe we will see something similar on the big screen.
