Star Wars Film Location


In the most recent Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, planet “Ahch-To” features many scenes from beautiful Malin Head, Donegal.  Mark Hamill who plays Luke Skywalker has spoken many times about this wonderful place – he has been quoted as saying  “I don’t know what it is but there’s something very magical there. I would encourage everyone to go there”.

In a pre-recorded message played before the screening, Hamill said “I can’t wait to come back to a country that made me feel like a member of the family. So may the force be with you all and pour a pint of Guinness for me, will you.”
