STAR WARS VII Headed Back To Tatooine?
According to a source for Badass Digest, J.J. Abrams Star Wars: Episode VII headed to Morocco, and will start filming there May 14th. Could they be headed there to take advantage of the old abandoned sets of Luke Skywalker's home planet, Tatooine?
A week ago, the Icelandic website visir.is (via Metro News), reported, Star Wars VII will film landscape shots sometime in the Spring, which led many sites to speculate that JJ was gonna reintroduce the ice planet Hoth, last seen in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Now, it seems as though JJ is planning some more fan service with a return to Anakin Skywalker and Luke Skywalker's home world of Tatooine. Keep in mind, that's just speculation, but it makes sense. It's based on this recent report from Badass Digest: "Sources tell me that Star Wars Episode VII will begin shooting almost exactly six weeks from today, on May 14th. The first two weeks will be on location in Morocco." From there, they speculate that sets in Morocco, used for Tatooine in the original Star Wars trilogy, would be put to use again. Currently, the structures are in fairly rough shape, but that's to be expected based on age and neglect. And further speculation suggests that the sets dilapidated appearance could actual be beneficial to JJ's vision. Not much info, but then again we don't know too much about this project at the moment. As it stands, Adam Driver is most likely the main baddie, the cast will be made up of familiar faces and a trio of young leads, and that the film will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi. Oh, and the film will be released December 18, 2015.
