We’ve got another Star Wars update or maybe it’s better to call it a confirmation. Remember last week when those AT-AT looking pictures surfaced on the internet? Check out the article here on Mania.com. Disney’s Chairman, Alan Horn, confirmed that second unit filming was happening in the desert of Abu Dhabi.
From Variety: “We did some second-unit work in Abu Dhabi,” Horn said, speaking at the Bloomberg and Tribeca Film Festival Business of Entertainment Breakfast Tuesday in New York. “We have to give that the ‘Star Wars’-ian look, if I can use that as an adjective — we need to go to these places.”
(There was no official confirmation on if this was an AT-AT or not)
Horn, who previous credits include all 8 Harry Potters and the The Dark Knight Trilogy, stated that the next two Star Wars films will be released in 2017 and 2019. Disney is not officially set for December premiere dates. Spin off films for Star Wars will arrive in 2016 and 2018. Thus insuring Star Wars films for the next 4 straight years.
Star Wars: Episode VII arrives Dec. 18, 2015.
