A galaxy not quite so far away… Filming on location for ROGUE ONE
One thing that’s certain about the newest Star Wars films is that there is a definite tangibility to them. Just like the original saga stories, ROGUE ONE took advantage of our own planet’s dramatically diverse landscapes to bring to life the worlds of the Star Wars universe.
A new clip released by Disney gives a little insight into turning real world destinations into fantastical far off places. The production for ROGUE ONE went all around the world including Jordan, the Maldives and Iceland!
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY focuses on the story of unlikely heroes who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The cast includes Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, and Forest Whitaker. ROGUE ONE is directed by Gareth Edwards, produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur, and Simon Emanuel, executive produced by John Knoll and Jason McGatlin, and co-produced by John Swartz and Kiri Hart.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is in theaters now.
