Some Star Wars Abu Dhabi filming details revealed

May 11th, 2014 by Marc Comments

With filming set to begin on Tuesday on Tatooine, sorry, Abu Dhabi, reports are coming in about the sets that have appeared…

According to The National report a “whole world” has been built on an otherworldly salt lake at one location. But that’s not all, A shuttle-like spacecraft, a large tower, a big, centuries-old-looking market, something referred to as the “alien house”, and around a dozen jet-engine powered really fast buggies

They are also reporting that “Two trucks full of explosives were brought to one of the sites under high security and a blast crater has been created, indicating likely either a battle or spacecraft crash plays a key part.”

So, love it or not, there’s no denying that we are heading to the galaxy far, far away…

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….
