Since the release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens in 2015, Skellig Michael in Co. Kerry has been thrust into the international limelight. 

The makers of the hit movie were so taken with the stunning island that they came back to film scenes for Episode VIII- The Last Jedi which will be released in December of this year. 

Judging by this behind the scenes trailer which was released yesterday, the location looks as amazing as ever. 

Whether you're a fan of the franchise or not, you have to admit the clip looks pretty spectacular and we're looking forward to seeing the film this festive season.
