Watch: This Star Wars behind the scenes video has JJ Abrams praising Skellig Michael
For many, Skellig Michael, was the location that stole the show in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
The island located off the coast of Kerry looked majestic on the big screen and Irish people everywhere should be proud to have our nation's natural beauty showcased in what looks set to become the biggest movie of all time.
It's all well in good praising Skellig Michael ourselves but its that little bit sweeter to hear praise from others. In particular the filmmakers themselves. Have a look at the video below released by Tourism Ireland which showcases behind the scenes footage of the filmmakers on set as well as interviews with director J.J. Abrams and production designer Rick Carter.
