Skellig Michael Looks Absolutely Stunning In This New 'Star Wars' Featurette

"We needed to find somewhere completely from another time and place..."

The release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just before Christmas was huge for Irish tourism due to the inclusion of our very own island, Skellig Michael.

Off the coast of Kerry, the island was once home to an ancient Christian monastery and appeared in the blockbuster as the home of the Jedi.

This video was just released by Tourism Island to show the filmmakers logic behind shooting there. Have a good look at the absolutely breathtaking Skellig Michael in the clip above.
