Filming Has Officially Began On Skellig Michael For Episode 8!

    The Irish Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has published the following marine advisory:

    “The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been advised of filming taking place on Sceilig MhichĂ­l, (also known as Skellig Michael or Great Skellig Island), Co. Kerry from 5am on Monday 14th September to 7pm on Friday 18 th September 2015.

    Vessels are requested to give the island a wide berth during these activities. Vessel masters and skippers are reminded to comply with the requirements of the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea at all times.”

    This means that in production at the moment we have “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Rogue One,” and “Star Wars: Episode VIII.”

    There was a time when I did not believe we would ever see another live action Star Wars film, and now we have three films in production at the same time!
