    New details on the filming of Star Wars Episode IX in Jordan have been revealed, indicating that Lucasfilm filmed in a location that was previously used in the 1962 epic film Lawrence of Arabia.







    A poster on r/StarWarsLeaks recently traveled to Jordan with a friend, with a shared interest to visit Wadi Rum with the help of a business associate. The associate in question was a logistics specialist who actually told them that filming for Star Wars Episode IX had wrapped there, so they stopped by the filming location. To prove they were there, they shared multiple images of the area where the crew resided off-set (which had yet to be taken down), which includes a logo containing the movie's production code name, 'trIXie':

    In addition, the associate apparently showed the user some raw footage of various takes, which one of the crew members was able to record in secret. There were three brief scenes described, which are as follows:

    What's most interesting to me is the detail about the presence of a blue lightsaber, as this invites speculation. It's listed as being ignited in the scenes that were filmed, and while the color could be changed in post-production (since this is a prop and not a finished visual effect), there's a strong possibility that this could be a reforged Skywalker Lightsaber. Perhaps it thematically could serve as the overall arc of the sequel trilogy: The Force Awakens is a movie about the revival of the franchise (symbolized by the sudden reappearance of the Skywalker lightsaber), The Last Jedi deconstructs its mythology and is built around the idea of letting go (symbolized by the Skywalker lightsaber being fractured), and Episode IX could be about reconstructing things while learning the past (symbolized by the Skywalker lightsaber being rebuilt).



    As of right now, we're only going off of this user's word with the footage description, so only time will tell if the information given is accurate. While the information should only be taken as a rumor, the photos from the location which include the production logo lend the poster a bit of credence. With about 13 months or so until Episode IX, we're sure to get more stories on the movie soon instead of having to deal with the current drought of information.

    Should I take this seriously? Someone spendt a lot of time to make this seem legit; which doesn't sound like the classic someone who works for someone else.

    We shall see, not fully convinced yet. However at least there's a degree of evidence they were there. Not sure about the crain thing. How do you get clear images that high up with a bird's eye view? Hmm as I say not convinced. As I have said before in another thread. Some folks have been passing off sightings, filming schedules and dates as evidence of screen time, which is quite frankly ridiculous unless you are with cast members 24/7. So at least this leak has some credit of reality rather than insidious semblance.

    We absolutely know that they're done filming in Jordan, at least for now. John Boyega was recently celebrating the wrap of that portion of the shoot on his Instagram, if I'm not mistaken.

    Great news that Jordan had a suitable location for this trilogy finale.
