Following an earlier report that the film crew for Star Wars Episode VII had journeyed to Skellig Micheal island, just off the coast of Ireland, to film scenes, we now have photo evidence that famillar Star Wars cast and crew are on site. The production is believed to be a three day shoot and over the past few days several reports and photos have leaked out pointing to J.J. Abrams and Mark Hamill possibly being part of the entourage, which Star Wars 7 News covered in detail. Later photos of both Hamill and Abrams (below) surfaced confirming the rumors, and today, courtesy of a local newspaper(above), we have hard evidence that Daisy Ridley is among them.

The Movie Bit also revealed a great many photos and videos of the Episode VII crew in the area, and reported some interesting tidbits of info, claiming that Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill did indeed shoot a scene together on the island.
So, what planet could this be? And what could Luke Skywalker and Kira Solo(or whatever her name is) be doing here? Leave your speculation in the comments below, or strike up a conversation in Club SWU on Facebook. We'd love to hear from you!
