Star Wars film crew may return to Kerry this month.

Disney LucasFilm have reportedly scheduled re-shoots in Ireland and Scotland for scenes in the next Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.

Filming for Episode VIII took place in West Kerry at Ceann Sibeál last summer with crew on site from March  to June of last year.

Star Wars actors Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Daisy Ridley (Rae) and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) all filmed scenes in West Kerry.

While reshoots are typically part of major movies, there has been some online speculation the untimely death of Carrie Fisher – who played Princess Leia in the franchise – may have had an impact on future storylines.
