Andor – Filming in the UK.

Hello there!

Over the past few days/weeks there has been a lot of filming activity for the Star Wars Show Andor.

The Show is going to be a prequel to the film Rogue One, and tells the tales of Cassian Andor and his journey to the Rebellion.

Many places in the UK appear to have been used for filming this series, which is actually a little different to the other TV show – The Mandalorian, which was mostly filmed in The Volume at MBS studios, California.

It would appear that this production is traversing the UK and using a lot more “real World” locations to convey Galaxy’s far, far away.

 Who would believe that Shoretroopers would end up in Blackpool!
