Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently casting supporting and background roles with production confirmed by Lucasfilm to begin this February in the UK.
New production news might have revealed two of the locations for the standalone film.
Spanish film blog El Blog Decine Espanol (via StarWarsNewsNet) is stating that Lucasfilm is looking to shoot on location on the island of Fuerteventura (apart of the Spanish Canary Islands) along with an undisclosed location in Italy. These are only rumored at this point.
Game of Thrones Season 7 and Jason Bourne (doubling for Greece) recently shot scenes in The Canary Islands.
Here’s the original post via Google Translate along with some stunning locational images of the island.
The film ‘Han Solo’, the spin-off project based on the mythical character of the Star Wars saga, and has set the film locations and Spain form part of it.
Specifically, the island of Fuerteventura is one of the fundamental stages of this new installment of ‘The Star Wars’. In addition, we have learned that Italy will also host the recording.
This important shoot in the Canary Islands adds to a recent long list that includes the fiction of HBO ‘Game of Thrones’ or the saga Bourne. The suitability of its scenarios, professional qualification, as well as the spectacularity and landscape variety are combined with an effective fiscal policy. Thanks to the good work of the Film Commission, the shooting sites benefit from the economic impact thanks to jobs and tourism.
The confirmed cast includes Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover.
Woody Harrelson is reportedly in talks to play Solo’s mentor as well.
Han Solo’s release date has been slated for May 25th, 2018.
