First Star War Spinoff to Film in London 2015
Star Wars movies have traditionally been filmed on studio sets in the United Kingdom, though in recent years London has become an increasingly popular shooting location for blockbusters in general (ranging from Thor: The Dark World to 47 Ronin)
Meaning, certain tentpoles in the making have been unable to book a stay at such places as Pinewood Studios, where the bulk of principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII shall take place over the next several months. (Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man is going to be shooting outside the UK, for that reason.)
It has been confirmed, however, that at least one of the forthcoming Star Wars spinoff movies will be shooting at Pinewood Studios, once Episode VII has wrapped up production. For those just tuning in, Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm are developing at least three Star Wars films that are not part of the central saga, and will be released in between the years of forthcoming “Episodes”, so that moviegoers can make the trip to a galaxy far, far away on an annual basis (if they so choose to).
An unconfirmed list of upcoming Star Wars movies/TV series indicates that Edwards’ project is a Boba Fett movie, due to arrive in 2016.
For the time being, though, that analysis is mostly speculative is nature, so it should be taken as such.Star Wars: Episode VII is slated to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015, with the first Star Wars spinoff expected to follow sometime in 2016.
