The complications for filming at Skellig Michael are pretty well known to Star Wars fans that followed The Force Awakens’ production and more recently that of Star Wars: Episode VIII. We have heard that a lot of the filming for the Luke Skywalker refuge planet of Ahch-To will take place over several locations. Much of the filming appears to be taking place at Pinewood Studios where a full replica of many parts of the Skellig Michael location has been recreated.
Today we have seen a tiny glimpse of the hut at Pinewood:
Hopefully we get some more glimpses into the sets of Star Wars: Episode VIII soon. Check back soon for more details on Star Wars: Episode VIII, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and the future of Star Wars on screen at MakingStarWars.net.
Update: Pictures of the huts from Ceann Sibéal have begun popping up today.
