Our pals over at Star Wars Sessions – and if you haven’t had a listen give them a go, great fun – bring news of a new location for Star Wars: Andor, the Coryton Refinery in Essex. As the boys summise, it could be a stand in for the now demolished Fawley Power Station where Solo filmed, or a new location entirely, but either way with filming at Little Marlow now done there’s apparently plenty of work still to be done on Andor.

Based on multiple sources, Star Wars Sessions can exclusively confirm that shooting for the upcoming Disney+ series Andor has been taking place here in Essex – specifically Coryton Refinery, an abandoned refinery situated roughly twenty-eight miles from central London. The shoot itself has been being readied for the past few weeks and these same sources have confirmed the presence of both Tony Gilroy and Diego Luna for the principal photography shoot.

No story details were given.
The shoot has been ongoing for several weeks including prep time and set-up.
Tony Gilroy, Diego Luna, and various members of the cast have been on-location to shoot scenes.
Multiple locations across and within the refinery have been utilised.
Various instances of green screen have been spotted across the site.
