It was very exciting waiting for the filming of Star Wars Episode VIII in Dubrovnik and looking at the production crew getting all the locations ready. I can’t imagine how exciting it is for those in Ireland who just realised they are getting a replica of Millennium Falcon built in their neighbourhood.
As reported by BelfastTelegraph the preparations for filming of Episode VIII in Malin Head are still going on, but more and more of the set is taking shape. The most important addition is what seems to be a full size model of the iconic Millennium Falcon on the set as well as a possible star base of some sort.
Naturally, the construction work is creating a lot of buzz and interest from the local fans, but there are reports of plenty of private security members aimed at making it impossible for people to get close to the sets.
