Where was Rogue One filmed?

The latest trailer from the first of the new three spin-off Star Wars movies is coming packed with stunning scenery and epic battles. The action is taking place after the events of the Revenge of the Sith, and before the original Star Wars IV episode.

Rogue One follows the adventures of a group of revels, starring Felicity Jones and Diego Luna. We are spoiler-free as usually, and we don't have any clue about the fate of the Death Star that appears in the movie.

This Lucasfilm production is travelling to amazing locations all around (our) world. Rogue One has been filmed in the dark southern coast of Iceland, the desert of Jordan, the studios of England, and in a fabulous paradise-like destination in Maldives:

We start in Iceland, looking at this beautiful shots, apparently filmed for a flashback scene in planet Eadu.

Rogue One Filming Locations
This is the out-of-this-world plain and windy landscape, east of the small town of Vík, in the south of the island.

Rogue One Iceland
Mýrdalssandur beach used to be the bed of a glacier during the last ice age. I would like to thank to the inventor of the copy-pasting option again for all the help when having to name the mountains Hafursey (pictured) and Hjörleifshöfði.

Rogue One Island
But in terms of visuals, we reckon that this new Star Wars story is going to be noted for bringing a commando of Stormtroopers landing in a tropical beach. Image by courtesy of Lucasfilm

Rogue One Maldives
The shooting was carried on in the Laamu Atoll in Maldives, around Berasdhoo Island and Laamu Gan (that look more or less like this alluring picture from Atoll Addu, also in Maldives. Sorry, so far we don't have a good pic from Laamu).

Rogue One Scarif
Maldives is doubling as the wonderful planet Scarif, where a massive battle scene takes place.

Rogue One shooting locations
Some of the sequences from Scarif were filmed in Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England (Compare the first image from the trailer and the one below, of the same explosion, from the making of). Image by courtesy of Lucasfilm

Rogue One underground
An easy spot to be visited for the fans is the Canary Wharf tube Station in London, where some scenes for an Imperial base or an evil spacecraft were filmed. Image by courtesy of Lucasfilm and Sunil060902

Where did they filmed Rogue One
The scene was filmed on location during the hours when the line is closed to the public, from midnight to 4 am.

Rogue One Jordan
What would it be a Star Wars film without a Tatooine-like dusty desertic planet? That bring us to Jordan.

Rogue One Wadi Rum
In the last years, the hills of Wadi Rum valley have seen many big productions filming here, like The Martian or Prometheus. Image by Dougie O'Brien

Where is Rogue One set
This new planet called Jedha has been described as the Mecca or the Jerusalem of Star Wars, a pilgrimage place for believers in the Force. We also believe that many other studio scenes have been filmed in Pinewood Studios, near London.
