EXPLORE ALL THE WORLDS IN NEW ROGUE ONE FEATURETTE

With a typical marketing campaign for a film, behind-the-scenes featurettes are part of the pre-release phase, along with trailers, TV spots, and other imagery. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a film that prided itself on secrecy (though not as much as The Force Awakens), we’re getting more of these materials after the fact, as the film continues to fatten its worldwide total.

One such featurette basks in the imagery of the various real-life locales, including Jordan (where the scenes on the planet Jedha were filmed), the U.K. (used for the exterior shots of the Rebel base and where director Gareth Edwards filmed some of the more VFX-heavy shots on a soundstage), Iceland (the location for the planet Lah’mu, where Mads Mikkelsen’s Galen Erso used as a hideout from the Empire), and the Maldives (used for Scarif, the tropical planet that housed an Empire military base).
