Our second Star Wars spin-off news report of the day… well, we did say we were excited about what’s coming next.

After reporting earlier today that the new movie is looking for a strong female lead in the possible shape of Rooney Mara or Tatiana Maslany (here) it seems we have some more details now about location and plot.

According to the guys at Making Star Wars, they have sources at Pinewood studios who have given them some details on the next stage in the Star Wars story:

– Expect more on-location shooting than for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
– Crew members are hearing their start dates now.
– Many believe they are doing a lot of work on-location in Mexico for the first spin-off.
– There have been some Star Wars: The Force Awakens re-shoots going down recently at Pinewood using some of those people.
– Bounty hunters are important to the film.
– Painters are expected to redress some set pieces from The Force Awakens and there are lots of cost cutting measures like that in place for the first spin-off film. Most of the reshoot materials are to be saved when possible for this reason.

The belief is that the Bounty Hunters after the Death Star plans rumoured plot for a while back is pretty on the money… read that story here

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
