Episode VIII Film Crews Arrive in North of Ireland

By Ciaran Duggan,

According to The Donegal Daily and the BBC, it is believed that Star Wars: Episode VIII film crews have arrived in County Donegal, in the last day or so. There was already widespread rumors and speculation about the possibility of Episode VIII crews arriving in the country, and it looks as though those rumors were true. 

Trucks and Cranes have arrived at Malin Head, the Inishowen Peninsula, in the last couple of days. Donegal Daily journalist, Stephen Maguire, spoke with BBC Radio Ulster about the reaction of local residents:

"There's huge excitement in the area. We don't know what they are filming, or what exact scenes are being filmed, but the reason they want to film here has to be the spectacular scenery. We just hope its not a trap."

Maguire hit on the main question on everyone's lips. What scene(s) are being filmed in this county? We will have to wait on the answer to that one in December 2017.
