Bit late on this one….. Recently Vanity Fair magazine released their seasonal special edition Star Wars The Last Jedi covers.

These cover images were taken in 2016 by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on location on “Ach-To”, Skellig Michael, Ireland and at Pinewood Studios, London.

Filming Location update – Crait

So this one might be a little pre-emptive but here goes.

I have updated/added an entry in Filming Locations under Episode VIII – The Last Jedi for the planet Rian Johnson has named as CRAIT – “It’s way out there. It’s uncharted. It’s a mineral planet and so there are mines on it,” according to Johnson.

When I know more I will update the page, but for now, take a look and if you know anything please let me know….
