A new image was released from the UK set of Star Wars: Episode VII today that not only featured R2D2, but also included an announcement about where Gareth Edwards Spin-off will film. Not surprisingly, the movie is set to be shot in the UK. The tweet, from a UK economic official (featured in the shot with R2, Kathleen Kennedy and JJ Abrams) reads:
On set of Episode VII tonight, can announce another #StarWars film will be made in UK. A #LongTermEconomicPlan in a galaxy far far away
It looks like they are most likely talking about the Gareth Edwards’ directed spin-off, though there’s still no word on which one that will be.
