- "Do you think I came to the most unfindable place in the galaxy for no reason at all?"
- ―Luke Skywalker
Temple Island was an island on the planet Ahch-To where the Jedi Order was founded over a thousand generations before the fall of the Galactic Republic. The island was home to the first Jedi Temple and a tree library containing ancient sacred texts written by the earliest Jedi. The island also housed a Jedi village where the first Jedi lived, which was maintained by Lanai Caretakers. The island was also home to the native porgs.
The island was where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker chose to spend the rest of his life in self-imposed exile after his nephew, Ben Solo, destroyed the new generation of Jedi. He was discovered on temple island by Rey, a Force prodigy, in 34 ABY. Skywalker died on the island after projecting his appearance into the Battle of Crait.
Behind the scenes
Temple island is based on Skellig Michael in Ireland, where the final scenes of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and parts of Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi were filmed. Filming on the island itself was not an option for most of The Last Jedi's production, so some scenes were shot on location just north on the Dingle Peninsula, while others were shot at Pinewood Studios in England.
