Filming of “Star Wars: Episode 8” will reportedly return to Ireland. After filming in Skellig Michael, the production will now take place on the west coast of the country, which is a popular tourism trail. Meanwhile, a video from the set has surfaced online, showing the filming of an action sequence.

According to a report by RTE, Lucasfilm’s Vice President of Physical Production Candice Campos has confirmed that the filming will return to Ireland. Campos said that the beauty of Skellig Michael was “stunning” and they are sure that the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland will “prove to be equally as beautiful” in the forthcoming movie.

Campos thanked the people of Ireland for their “warm welcome and continued support.” The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys, said that the filming of the movie in Ireland was a boost for the film industry in the country.

Irish Film Board Chief Executive James Hickey said that Lucasfilm had chosen "spectacular locations along the Wild Atlantic Way." According to a report by The Movie Bit, some of the scenes of “Star Wars: Episode 8” are being shot at Brow Head, Co.Cork. Filming is set to take place for 12 weeks at this location and it will be shot on private property.

Some of the scenes of the movie have already been filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Pictures and videos from the set in the city have been leaking online for the past few weeks. A new video from the set has now surfaced online, showing the filming of an action sequence.

[Spoiler alert]

A video posted on The Dubrovnik Times, shows what appears to be patrons sitting in an outdoor restaurant. The scene being filmed shows a small explosion near the restaurant, when someone passes by. The patrons head for cover, as the camera passing by captures their reaction.

“Star Wars: Episode 8” is being directed by Rian Johnson. The movie is set to be released on Dec. 15 in Australia and the US.
