A sequence for the new Star Wars VII movie, which will be released in 2015, is being filmed on the UNESCO Hertiage Site Skellig Michael (The Skellig Islands) in the coming days. As a result, Skellig Michael will not be open to the public for a number of days. A crew of around 80 film people will create some magic while there. If the upsurge of New Zealand tourism is anything to go by, due to the ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Trilogy, we may be very fortunate with the arrival of Star Wars to The Skelligs, in the coming years.
