Filming for Star Wars in Ceann Sibéal could begin to wrap up as early as tomorrow. A full scale production has been underway west of Dingle over the past six days. Today scenes ‘pivotal’ to the movie were said to be shot at Commenoule in Dún Chaoin. Sources close to production say the West Kerry shoot is a day ahead of schedule and as such could begin to wrap as early as tomorrow. Dramatic footage was secured over the weekend with helicopters capturing cliff top battle scenes, filmed before sunset. Stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver are said to have filmed scenes at the Ceann Sibéal where a number of Beehive Huts have been constructed. Up to 500 people are thought to have been involved in the production.
