MARK HAMILL REPORTS TO SET OF STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII
The Irish Examiner says cast and crew members are gathering in County Kerry to film scenes off the coast on the rocky isle of Skellig Michael, which also served as a location on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Unfortunately, bad weather conditions have reportedly impacted the shoot there.

"A crew of around 100 people and cast members, including Mark Hamill who will reprise his Luke Skywalker role, are expected to be on the boats due to leave Portmagee today at 7am," reports the Examiner, which included a photo of Hamill's son Nathan checking into his local hotel.
We learned last week that Episode VIII would be shooting in Ireland this month. Skellig Michael was a monastic settlement between the sixth and twelfth centuries. And while we know for certain until The Force Awakens opens, persistent rumors claim the ruins of Skellig Michael double as Luke Skywalker's hideaway.
