The cast and crew of Star Wars Episode VIII are already confirmed to be filming in the very South of Ireland in County Kerry, but now they will also be travelling to the Northern peak of the Emerald Isle, as we can also reveal that they will be filming in Malin Head, on the Inishowen Peninsula, of County Donegal.
Malin Head has a look and feel similar to that of Skellig Michael, and Ceann Sibéal where further filming is already planned.
The Derry Journal is reporting that:
They are expected to film in Malin Head in May for around a month. A number of B&Bs and vacant houses in Malin Head and the surrounding area have been completely booked out for a number of weeks in late April and throughout May. It is understood some initial works at Malin Head have already got underway in preparation for filming.
