For the fifth installment of the Jurassic Park movies, the crew uses familiar locations.
The cliffs while approaching the park at Isla Nublar are the vistas at Napali Coast, Kauaii. The same location was used in the original Jurassic Park.
Also, the popular location at Oahu, Kualoa Ranch was used for the tower, bunker and Gyrosphere scenes.
New Hawaiian location that was used is Police Beach (Papailoa Beach). At the beach the destroyed park was erected. For the previous film, a deserted Six Flags park at New Orleans was used.
The beach at Halona Blowhole is the spot where Owen and Claire emerge after the drop from the cliff (strange not a single dinosaur finds that same beach… that is why they are extinct)…
For the 2014 Bomd like movie “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, a real store with a similar name was used. In Savile Row London the Huntsman Store can be found which was used.
Not the first time since the reboot of Doctor Who 2005 (and Torchwood) that the BBC crew used Bute Street as a filming location. After visiting South Africa with the new 11th doctor lady, they are back in Wales in this familiar street. In fall 2018 we will see what has been filmed here…
In the North-West point of Ireland, subterranean caves can be found. Although they are not accessible to the public, the crew for ‘The Last Jedi’ were allowed to use the location for filming.
Around Malin Head, multiple locations were used, a walking tour is available.
On one of the most beautiful locations in the World (as written by National Geographic), on the west coast of Ireland, a historic scene was created for a ‘galaxy far far away’.
The crew for ‘The Last Jedi’ had used the Island of Skellig Michael for the scenes where Luke Skywalker is found by Rey. On this Island, beehive huts can be found. These are not the actual ones used for the film, instead on the mainland of Ireland, at Sybil Head, these amazing huts were recreated.
For the disappointing sequel to “The Force Awakens”, “The Last Jedi” – Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill) refuses to train Rey (the wonderful Daisy Ridley) on the Islands of Skellig Michael.
Rey has a vision in a cave, these caves are in Ireland, but not on the Island itself. Instead they are on the mainland, at Brow Head. About 8 minutes from Brow Head lies Crookhaven where the crew went for food and drinks (O’Sullivans Bar claims to have been used as a place for cast and crew to have a rest).
Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley visited Ireland for “The Force Awakens” . They returned to the Irish “Wild Atlantic Way” for the 2017 movie “The Last Jedi”. One of the Hotels they stayed in while filming on the islands of Skellig Michael was the “Butler Arms Hotel“.
