Rogue One Locations Featurette

"You feel like you're in a galaxy far, far away." Visiting other planets without leaving our planet. Lucasfilm + Disney have revealed one more making of featurette for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is now playing in theaters nationwide. The video includes some discussions with director Gareth Edwards and star Felicity Jones talking about filming on location. They profile locations in the United Kingdom (where most of the sets are built) as well as Iceland, Maldives, and Jordan. If you've seen the movie, you should be able to recognize all of these places. It's fascinating to see them turn these locations on Earth into exotic planets around the Star Wars galaxy. The spectacular magic of making movies. Now I want to see this again.

Here's the new featurette on the "locations" in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, direct from YouTube:

Rewatch the first teaser for Rogue One here, plus the second or third trailer / behind-the-scenes featurette.

"Rogue One takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe," says Kathleen Kennedy. Rogue One tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. It's being directed by English filmmaker Gareth Edwards, of the movies Monsters and Godzilla previously. The screenplay is credited to Chris Weitz (About a Boy, The Golden Compass, Cinderella) based on a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. Disney will release Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in theaters everywhere starting December 16th, 2016 - now playing in cinemas worldwide. Your favorite locations?

    I always thought this was a funny aspect of Star Wars. You have an ice planet, a desert planet, a lava planet, a water planet etc....yet on our little planet Earth we have it all. Not much diversity within each planet's atmosphere I guess.....
    • We have also lot of Vaders...
    • Foffee
      Not really...many of the worlds have diverse ecosystems. Worlds like Naboo, Endor, and Alderaan to name a few.
      • TheOct8pus
        Endor is a "forest moon"....the whole thing is a forest. Naboo and Alderaan are basically Switzerland/North Italy.
        • Foffee
          Wrong on all three counts. Just google the planets and the images clearly show diverse environments.
          • TheOct8pus
            I find it funny that each planet is only one environment in the movies....I'm not referring to expanded universe nonsense
          • Foffee
            Thats like saying Earth must only be covered in snow because thats all we see in The Thing.
          • TheOct8pus
            Silly....the Earth has all sorts of environments. It's not like Tatooine. hahaa
          • Foffee
            Silly...Naboo and Alderaan have all sorts of Environments. They are nothing like Tatooine. hahaa
    Looks like a great time.
