Complete Guide to the Filming Locations Where The Last Jedi Was filmed

Where was The Last Jedi filmed
Posted by Ra Moon
Episode VIII of the galactic epic saga Star Wars came 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 in a studio at Pinewood Studios in England, near London. However, a lot of action takes place in several corners of the globe. The Last Jedi was filmed in England, Ireland, Croatia and Bolivia. Welcome to our filming locations guide of the middle episode of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. As usual, we tried to keep spoilers to a minimum:

Daisy Ridley as Rey with lightsaber
Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley returned to Skellig Michael island in County Kerry, Ireland. A lot of the Artemis Fowl filming locations (the new Disney movie based on the popular books) are also shot in Ireland.

Die letzten Jedi Drehorte
The producers also considered filming at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. However, this animal below seems definitely inspired by the Llamas that live in the Andes range of South America.
