Scenes for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII are to be filmed in Scotland, according to The Sun, in the highlands and the Isle of Skye. No clue where that is? You’ve seen those places in films recently. Some of your favorite scenes from Skyfall and The Dark Knight Rises used Scotland as a backdrop.
The terrain in Scotland is truly ideal for Star Wars. The rock formations could pass for a rocky surface of a planet. That’s what JJ Abrams is hoping, anyway. We’ll get to see for ourselves, but not until 2015. We may also get to see Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill. They’ve all hinted that they will be making a return.
