Warning: Possible Spoilers for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"
Director J.J. Abrams is notorious for the shrouds of mystery he cloaks his films in, but not even he can plug every hole on a leaking ship.
An alleged video from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was posted to Youtube (and has since been taken down) revealing Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) seeking shelter in a cave on a deserted island.
"It is shot on a cell phone looking at a computer screen, so the clarity is not the best. What we can tell is it is labeled as 'Luke's Refuge' and is said to be filmed on Skellig Michael, an island located off the south of Ireland. Adding validity to the video, director J.J. Abrams was said to have shot some footage in Ireland earlier this year. Additionally there is a Walt Disney watermark in the middle of the footage, but that could be faked as well as anything else [sic]," the website's report said.
In August 2014, Hamill and Daisy Ridley, who portrays the new character Rey who may even be related to Luke in the film, were spotted at Skellig Michael to shoot a handful of scenes. These rumors may support the theory that Luke is in some sort of self-imposed exile throughout the film and that Rey goes on a journey to find the Jedi master after discovering a mysterious lightsaber.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will hit theaters on Dec. 18 and kick off a new trilogy of films from Lucasfilm and Disney. In addition, the studio will release a series of standalone anthology films to create a shared cinematic universe.
