Report: 'Episode VIII' Set Spotted at Pinewood Studios

By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars Episode VIII production is in full swing, with principal photography now under way.  The only planet from previous films that we know we will be returning to is Ach-To, the island planet where Rey found Luke at the end of Episode VIII.  We saw in the production announcement teaser that production had already returned to Skellig Michael, where the scenes from The Force Awakens were shot, and it looks like we can expect to see a lot more of the planet in Episode VIII.  However, due to environmental restrictions about shooting at Skellig Michael, there have been reports that locations on the island were being recreated on the back lot at Pinewood Studios.  The Instagram account JediRealEstate posted a picture from outside Pinewood Studios that seems to show the Ach-To set.  Check it out below,

As you can see, the structure beyond the wall definitely bears a similarity to some of the stone huts on Skellig Michael which we saw Rey walk past before finding Luke.
