Posted by Ra Moon

However, many scenes were recorded in several corners of the globe. The Last Jedi was filmed in England, Ireland, Croatia, and Bolivia.

Where was The Last Jedi filmed

The plot picks up where The Force Awakens left off after Rey meets Luke Skywalker on 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 Last Jedi, in what became her last performance on film.

Welcome to our guide to the filming locations of the Star Wars sequel trilogy middle episode. We tried to keep spoilers to a minimum, and I think we've done a pretty good job.
