Star Wars to shoot in Co.Cork and the Wild Atlantic Way

SHARE:

For some time now, we've been speculating on Star Wars Episode VIII doing some more filming in the Emerald Isle. Last year, Rian Johnson did some shots with Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill and returned again recently.  Now you can expect some more filming. And this time it's official.

Head of physical production at Lucasfilm, Candice Campos said that they were thrilled to be returning to Ireland. She said "The beauty of Skellig Michael in the final scene of The Force Awakens was stunning and we know the new locations along the Wild Atlantic Way will prove to be equally as beautiful in Star Wars: Episode VIII. We want to thank the people of Ireland for their warm welcome and continued support. Ireland has become an important part of Star Wars history.

We've just discovered that some of the scenes are to be shot in Brow Head, Co.Cork. We've seen the filming proposal and it's a pretty detailed document outlining the impact on the area right down to specifications for ports cabins.  According to the documentation, this seems to be a relatively long production. 12 weeks have been outlined for assembly, filming and disassembly of the sets and area. Filming will take place between 8am and 8pm on a privately owned parcel of land on the western side of the headland and a cast and crew of up to 200. Other scenes are also to be shot at the same time in another coastal location (as of yet unknown) which would account for the large crew (100 in each location maybe?)

No mention of Star Wars or the production company was listed on the documentation but it's noted that the "purpose of the proposed filming activity is to shoot a number of scenes for an established franchise" But given todays announcement, you'd want to be pretty dumb not to figure out what that is!
