Star Wars: Episode VIII Shoot at Dingle Peninsula Coming to a Close!
According to Radio Kerry, the near week-long shoot for Star Wars: Episode VIII in the Dingle Peninsula may conclude as early as tomorrow.
Radio Kerry also mentioned that the shoot is a day ahead of schedule and that up to 500 people are thought to have been involved in production. RK’s sources revealed to them that the scenes shot today at Commenoule in Dún Chaoin are ‘pivotal’ to the movie. Also, helicopters were used over the weekend to capture dramatic cliff top battle scenes.
With Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, and Adam Driver on location, it is highly probable that the three actors were involved in this cliff top battle. This report definitely seems to lend even more credence to the previously reported scene details surrounding Luke, Rey, and Kylo Ren on Ahch-To.
From Radio Kerry:
A full scale production has been underway west of Dingle over the past six days. Today scenes ‘pivotal’ to the movie were said to be shot at Commenoule in Dún Chaoin. Sources close to production say the West Kerry shoot is a day ahead of schedule and as such could begin to wrap as early as tomorrow.
Dramatic footage was secured over the weekend with helicopters capturing cliff top battle scenes, filmed before sunset. Stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver are said to have filmed scenes at the Ceann Sibéal where a number of Beehive Huts have been constructed. Up to 500 people are thought to have been involved in the production.
