With the filming at Cleveleys Promenade finished and the production shifting location, the Blackpool Gazette post this article looking not only at Cleveleys but other shooting locations around the UK. Outside of the major studios (Elstree, Ealing, Leavesden, Pinewood and Shepperton) that have been used to film the saga, there are far more locations than you might imagine – this article makes it clear that no other country can claim so many unique and individual exterior shooting locations as the UK.

The Fylde Coast remains at the forefront of the action as the franchise continues filming Star Wars: Andor in Cleveleys.

Swarms of movie fans have visited the Prom to catch a glimpse of Diego Luna – who will reprise his role as Cassian Andor – and the transformation of the seaside town.

Filming has ramped up since beginning on May 1, with green screens going up on Anchorsholme Prom, and increasing numbers of vehicles parking up near the beach.

While Star Wars holds the reputation of a huge Hollywood blockbuster, many scenes from the franchise through the years have actually been shot in the UK.

These are just some of the locations around the UK that you can visit that make appearances in the Star Wars films.

Check out the article that looks at locations including Canary Wharf (Scarif in Rogue One), Cardington Sheds (Yavin 4 in A New Hope and Rogue One), Puzzlewood (Takodana in The Force Awakens), the Lake District (Takodana in The Force Awakens), Greenham Common (D’Qar in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi), Bovingdon Airfield (Scarif in Rogue One), Ivinghoe Beacon (Kef Bir in The Rise of Skywalker), Whippendell Wood (Naboo in The Phantom Menace).

In addition, Fawley Power Station stood in for Corellia in Solo and the New Forest doubled for the lake shores of Naboo in The Phantom Menace.
