Is Star Wars Currently Filming in the Scottish Highlands?
Having lived in Scotland for the better part of a decade, I am so excited to share the news that a project in the Star Wars franchise may currently be filming in the Scottish Highlands!
According to a recent piece in The Courier, the supposed filming is taking place in Perthshire but local residents have been sworn to secrecy as to what is going on.
Though some locals are speculating that it may be the new Star Wars film, the local consensus is that they crew are currently working on episodes for Disney+ hit The Mandalorian.
According to the report in the Courier, crews began arriving earlier this month to an area in the Highlands known as Glen Tilt. In an otherwise quiet glen you’ll now find equipment trailers, canteen and a COVID-19 testing facility.
There are a number of projects in the pipeline just now including Andor which according to locals has also been filming on location in Scotland. When staff were approached about the project they weren’t willing to divulge what was being filmed.
According to reports, the crews have put up public notice signs throughout the area to make locals aware of the filming and the bulk of shooting is expected to take place through Une 18th.
The Courier attempted to speak to a local resident near the site about the filming. He simply said, “They’ve asked us not to say anything. We’re not supposed to talk to anyone about what is going on. So I can’t talk to you, sorry.”
While another man from a neighboring village told the paper, “I’ve heard it’s the next series of the Mandalorian but no-one knows for sure.”
This is a story that we’ll be following closely here at MickeyBlog and for those familiar with Scotland, when you’re watching the next Star Wars film or series, see if you notice that beautiful Highland scenery.
