New 'Episode VIII' Set Photo Surfaces

By: Benjamin Hart

It's always nice to get small glimpses behind the scenes of films prior to their release, and we've gotten more than our fair share from Star Wars: Episode VIII. Director Rian Johnson has been especially forthcoming with small but intriguing teases from the set. Interestingly the newest set photo to surface isn't new at all. Many weeks ago Johnson posted a beautiful photo on his Instagram showing a film crew positioned on a rocky cliff near the ocean. We can presume this is one of the several filming locations the production utilized in Ireland that portrays the planet Ahch-To, seen at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While the picture went unnoticed for a time, today actress Daisy Ridley(Rey) posted it to her own Instagram with the caption, "If [Rian Johnson] can share it, so can I." It has been going viral ever since and drawing much enthusiasm. You can check it out below:
