    Well, MSW has just released some pictures of the exterior sets for the series. The actual production will begin next week. It is crazy how well-kept the details for this show are.

    They are already starting filming, yet there were no news of the casting? Interesting.

    I guess we'll get some information about the cast with some kind of an official release, like the ones they do when the production of a film begins.

    They may also spend the first few weeks shooting tests and establishing shots and 2nd unit stuff before launching into the heavy stuff. But yeah, it is curious that we don't know much about casting etc. yet.

    I'm very intrigued by the giant hand :) Since it's a practical setpiece they must plan to film characters in relation to it. Perhaps someone will be standing in the palm, high above a crowd holding a Speech, or perhaps the thing will come crashing down amongst people in some battle scene or the like. Or, it has already fallen off a big statue during some ancient conflict. So many posibilities! :D Can't wait!

    Between this series, Episode IX and everything else, Celebration is bound to be a blast..! I envy those of you who are attending..

    About those photo's, I'm wondering how many ideas of the previously announced Underworld series is gonna blend over in this one. The possibilities are endless..!

    Wow, they're already about to start filming and we know nothing about this series. I have to show my respects to the team who is keeping it a secret so well! But I hope we get some casting news pretty soon.

    I'm curious if they're going to wait until Celebration with any kind of news. I would guess so. This or they'll start giving us pieces of info separately (shooting dates, premise, cast, crew...). I don't expect it to drop all at once, unless it's Celebration.

    I was hoping Disney would try a new strategy with television and lessen the “mystery box” attitude. But alas, if filming is on the verge of starting without a single actor/actress announced, it seems they are being even more tight-lipped about this.
    A few thoughts I had about the film shoot:
    1) It’s taking place in my home state of California, a much cheaper alternative to bringing everyone to Pinewood.
    2) the place is very Tatooine-esque..... are they going to show Boba Fett crawling out of the Sarlaac and stumbling into town?
    3) what about the “extensive CGI?” I was expecting more green screen filming for this show (like Favrau’s Jungle Book and Iron Man).

    Is there anyone who knows exactly where in SoCal they’re filming?
    I live in Southern California and from the look of the background buildings (from pics provided by MSW), it seems like they’re shooting somewhere between Irvine and Santa Ana. (I tried reading the names on the background skyscrapers to help pinpoint the location, but alas, it was too fuzzy.)
    I have always wanted to visit a real honest-to-goodness Star Wars set, and if I only knew where it was located, I’d drive there and post pictures before they rip the set down.

    People on Reddit say it's El Segundo, but I don't know how reliable that is.
