J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII in Abu Dhabi, but will soon be packing up his new X-Wing and taking the film to Ireland. According to the Office of Public Works, filming will commence off the coast of County Kerry. They’ll be filming around Skellig Michael, an island in the Atlantic Ocean 11.6 km west of County Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula.
