Adam Driver Doing Some Fitness in Dingle. More Photos from the Episode VIII Set!


A few days ago Kerry’s Eye reported that Adam Driver is back in Kerry after a short break during the Cannes Film Festival. Now a local fitness owner confirms that Adam, along with several other cast and crew members, visited his establishment to do some serious training. Read on for the details.



WK Fitness posted the following on Facebook:

Been extremely cool having Adam Driver and some of the Star Wars cast/crew at WK Fitness training this past week! 👌🏻👍🏻 .. He’s a pretty cool guy, loves Dingle! 😊 .. He’s hoping to make it back to WK Fitness some day! ‪



It is also believed that Daisy was there as well. Nice to see Rey and Kylo Ren training together. 🙂


Also here are a few new photos from the set that show something that some believe is the lower part of Kylo Ren’s shuttle. You be the judge:





What do you think? Could this be Kylo Ren’s ship?


Special thanks again to our friend Terence Mulvey.

    Looks like Quint’s boat from “Jaws”?

      If so, then let’s hope it’s a bigger one.

    I see not much practical ships…

    • May 23, 2016 at 10:24 pm

      You see only the lower half of it because you won’t see the top of it in the shot in the actual film. Simple as that. In Episode IV in the scene where Jawas tried to sell Luke and Owen some droids only the lower part of the Sandcrawler was actually there on set. In the shots with the full model we see in fact a miniature of it. The art of filmmaking is about keeping the illusion that the things on the screen are real and these two examples are precisely that.

        I see but I just don’t believe that only the very lowest part of the falcon and Ren’s ship are there… in IV the portion of the sandcrawler built was bigger…
        Mine was just a pun to the “everything practical” slogan

          It could be used to film a similar shot to Kylo Ren’s TFA introduction, as he walks down the access ramp of his ship.

            oh… right, but still doesn’t justify the millennium falcon

          • May 25, 2016 at 1:30 pm

            The Millennium Falcon never needs to be justified. It just ‘is’ 🙂

          • May 24, 2016 at 10:09 am

            this was and still is SO badass.

  • May 23, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    Darth Plagueis confirmed.

    • May 23, 2016 at 9:21 pm

      That’s ridiculous! That farmhouse is clearly the abode of a resurrected Sifo Dyas who spends his days experimenting with a cloned cow army! How could you not see that? 😉

    • May 24, 2016 at 6:02 am

      Actually, he’s Plagueis’ lost son’s cousin’s dog’s roommate.

  • May 23, 2016 at 9:10 pm

    Hey, I hope not any cattle is being harmed during the filming!

  • May 23, 2016 at 9:25 pm

    I have a good feeling about this…

  • May 24, 2016 at 1:06 am

    kylo ren has facial hair in episode VIII confirmed???

    • May 24, 2016 at 7:47 am

      Little Ben Solo is all grown up 🙂

    • May 24, 2016 at 7:20 pm

      Unless all his scenes are in the Mask

      • May 24, 2016 at 9:42 pm

        well.. i won’t spoil anything for you but i have a strong feeling if he does use his mask, he will definitely have it off at some points..

        • May 26, 2016 at 7:01 am

          Oh, i’m sure. I’m just saying, that it is possible that his stuble (when that picture was captured) might not be seen in the film, as he could be masked during that particular scene.

          • May 26, 2016 at 8:25 am

            good point!

    • May 25, 2016 at 5:06 pm

      Confirmed! He has facial hair and wears a suit and tie in episode VIII! Good catch! 😉

    I really hope Ron Perleman is in one of the SW films at some point, He seems like someone who would really be a perfect fit in any capacity.

    • May 25, 2016 at 5:05 pm

      Maybe. As long as he’s got some mask, or prosthetics on to mask his appearance a bit. He seems a bit too recognizable at this point, and I really like SW staying with relative unknowns, or less recognizable actors for the saga films.
      It’s like with Samuel LJ in the PT – all I could see and hear was Jules from Pulp Fiction. Even Ewan was a tiny bit distracting for me here and there, but anyways, that’s all. I’m babbling.

      • May 26, 2016 at 4:30 pm

        Definitely in a mask. Same goes for Doug Jones too.

  • May 24, 2016 at 6:01 am

    Adam likes Dingle. heeheehee
