Where was Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmed?

Episode VIII of the galactic epic saga Star Wars is almost here, packed with stunning locations. The plot picks up where The Force Awakens left off, when Rey meets Luke Skywalker in a remote oceanic planet.

Returning to their roles are Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Carrie Fisher. Fisher's sudden death occurred after completing her work on the The Last Jedi, in what became her last performance on film.

Many parts of the movie were shot on studio, but action takes place in several corners of the globe. The Last Jedi was filmed in England, Ireland, Croatia and Bolivia. These are the most relevant filming locations of the middle episode from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. As usual, we keep spoilers to a minimum:
