Star Wars Returning to the UK

Star Wars Episode VII To Be Filmed In The UK


After filming much of the prequels in Australia, Star Wars continues the “return to its roots” policy by opting to film Episode VII in the UK. While a specific studio location has yet to be announced, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the decision stating, “We’ve devoted serious time and attention to revisiting the origins of Star Wars as inspiration for our process on the new movie, and I’m thrilled that returning to the UK for production and utilising the incredible talent there can be a part of that.”
