I Love Filming In… England! Featuring ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Back to top

For the latest in our series of ‘I Love Filming In…’ shorts with The GREAT Britain Campaign we visit a galaxy far, far away to highlight the English locations on show in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.

Directed by J.J Abrams, this hotly tipped return to the ‘Star Wars’ universe picks up 30 years after ‘Return of the Jedi’ and follows a new group of heroes who must try to restore balance to the force. Revisiting this character-rich environment required finding locations that could pass for new worlds, alien strongholds and rebel bases, many of which were found in right here in England.

Watch our new ‘I Love Filming In’ short below to find out more about which English locations appear in the biggest film of the decade, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
