April Fools: A new Star Wars: Episode VIII location for Ireland that’s not Ahch-To related?

This was apparently an April Fools prank that spread into the media in Ireland.

Star Wars Episode VIII Completes Day 1 Filming!


Our buddy Blabba the Hutt has some interesting news about the filming of Star Wars: Episode VIII. It appears they have a lead on what will be the first filming in Ireland that’s probably not related to Ahch-To, but rather the planet we glimpsed from Dubrovnik recently.

Today it seems that one of Ireland’s most iconic markets is being prepared. The English Market in Cork is a municipal food market in the centre of Cork, Ireland.


Head over to Blabba’s site to check out a local’s feelings on this. The structure is interesting for sure. Good work, Blabba.
