‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ to return to Tatooine

- April 9th, 2014

It looks like Star Wars is going back to where it all began.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director J.J. Abrams and Disney are preparing an extensive recreation of Tatooine for Episode VII. Tatooine was the home planet of both Anakin and Luke Skywalker.

A source adds that the set will be built in a “Morocco-like environment” (the original was built in Tunisia).

Disney chairman Alan Horn announced last week that filming is already underway, with new leads expected to be added soon.

Earlier this week, sources told THR that Peter Mayhew is set to reprise his role as Chewbacca in the upcoming sequel.

Star Wars: Episode VII hits theatres Dec. 18, 2015.
