ballyferriter signSpeculation is mounting that Disney LucasFilm is to return to Kerry this summer to resume filming on the next movie in the Star Wars franchise.

Farmers and landowners in Ceann Sibeál, Ballyferriter are believed to have entered into confidentiality agreements to facilitate filming in the Corca Dhuibhne Gaeltacht.

Surveying works have been reportedly carried out along mountainous regions and filming to collect material to use in CGI is also said to have taken place in Ballyferriter Parish and Dún Chaoin.

It is speculated that filming in the West Kerry Gaeltacht may take place over a three week period this May – and that accommodation to facilitate the crew has been organised in Dingle.
