New Photos of 'Star Wars Episode VIII' Filming in Ireland

By: Dominic Jones

Several stars of next year's Star Wars Episode VIII are in Ireland right now filming scenes for the Rian Johnson directed film.  Last weekend they were out in Malin Head, filming what is rumored to be a huge scene, and today the production crew was out in Loop Head filming scenes along some cliffs.  Twitter user Tomás O Mainnín posted some photos of the crew at work on the set.  The pictures don't feature any of the main cast, but they do give us a good look at a location from the new film.  Check them out below,

Based on the look of those cliffs, it seems this may be another location for Ach-To (the planet from the end of The Force Awakens).  It makes you wonder how what's being shot there might fit in with what was reportedly shot at Malin Head, if it does at all.
