The Last Jedi – Sybil Head

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).

A New Hope – Chott el-Djerid

Flat as a pancake, this location was used for the Original Star Wars. Chott el-Djerid dessert is now a military highway, but still known as “Star Wars Canyon”.  Also here is the Moss Eisley overlook and the attack of the Sand People.

The Irish Island of Skellig Michael is used in the 2015 Star Wars reboot. Luke Skywalker is hiding on these islands, Rey finds him at the end of episode VII…

The Last Jedi:

Rey trains herself in the Islands of Skellig Michael (while Chewbacca has fun with the Porgs). More Irish locations have been used for the sequel to TFA.
