This is Skellig Michael, aka Ahch-To, home of Luke Skywalker ever since he became disillusioned with the Jedi. Today we get to find out what the deal is with that.

I also have some extremely rare footage of the Millennium Falcon making its first reconnaissance of the planet. As you can see, the Force initially misled Rey into circling around Little Skellig, which is mostly home to lots of gannets and lots of bird poop. It’s only after realizing her mistake that she headed back toward the right island. However, this scene was suppressed because Jedi try to keep it a secret that the Force likes to play practical jokes once in a while.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
