COULD the force be back on Skellig Michael?

The Irish Examiner are reporting this morning that speculation has increased that the Star Wars film crew will be coming back to the site because there are no regular sailings planned to the Unesco World Heritage site for the week beginning September 14.

The paper says that boatmen are not available that week, so rumours are flying that JJ Abrams and Co. will be back to film some scenes for the second part of the new series of movies in the franchise.

Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens is set for a December release and it’s hoped that Skellig Michael will feature in that movie after the crew spent three days filming there in August of last year and it was rumoured that they would be returning later this year to shoot more scenes involving Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker character.


The Irish Film Board  has not commented so far on the speculation. Maybe the boatmen are just going on holidays to Listowel Races for the week, before heading to the All-Ireland?
