There is a nice featurette of the new movie The Last Jedi from the Star Wars franchise. One shot (1:32) shows a helipad in the background. Did they build a helipad just for the movie and where is the helipad? I seem to recall that there was construction for one set, but I can't find any information.

Most of the scenes on Ahch-To were filmed on a real island in County Kerry of Ireland, called Skellig Michael.

According to The Irish Times, the island has had a helipad since 1969.

So no, they didn't need to build it. It had already been there for several decades.

  • That helipad looks pretty worn, so makes sense it isn't new. – ViggyNash Dec 18 '17 at 18:55
