The Last Jedi -- Kylo Ren Flew To Luke's Island ... So He Could Stand Off-Camera
Star Wars fans are among the most insatiably hungry for advance details, like sharks that survive off of hearing about fired directors and dumb alien names. Not surprisingly, when The Last Jedi was filming, outlets were so eager to snag a scoop that Lucasfilm was forced to battle paparazzi drones by building their own drone army. (That's a drone army, not a clone army, which we all know would be highly unethical and surprisingly dull.)
One particularly exciting piece of news that slipped out was that Adam Driver had flown to Ireland, the filming location for Ahch-To, Luke Skywalker's private island.

Barring any kind of Girls Go Celtic HBO movie, it sure seemed like Kylo Ren was going to find Rey and Luke, possibly with the Knights of Ren in tow -- leading to, as one report speculated, "a battle between three highly-powered Force users."

Either because Adam Driver is a super generous actor or no one told him that Skype is a thing, he went to a remote island in Ireland solely to stand off-camera and deliver his lines for Daisy Ridley to react to. And you might be thinking, "Hey, what about that scene in which Kylo appears in Rey's hut so they can finger each other ... so to speak?"
