Hi kids, it’s weird-ass Star Wars rumor time, but don’t worry, there’s actually some factual information here as well. It recently came out that J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII would film on the lovely island Skellig Michael off the coast of Ireland. That much is true, as is the fact that Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, was on location and just completed three days worth of shooting. The truly strange and curious part, which could possibly link to this bit of real news, is that professional wrestler Sheamus might be involved, and might play Darth Vader.
Yeah, we were under the impression that Darth Vader was dead, too, but according to the Irish Daily Mirror, that’s the scuttlebutt that’s been going around. The Ireland-born WWE Superstar recently returned to his homeland, Tweeting that he was on his way to, you guessed it, Skellig Michael.
