    Some photos of filming for Star Wars Episode IX reveal that the movie will be taking us to a snowy deciduous forest for the second time in the sequel trilogy. However, there's a key detail in this set that suggests that we won't be getting a flashback to Starkiller Base, but that we'll see a new planet entirely.





    Some set photos revealed through Instagram give us another idea about where the climactic Star Wars movie of a generation is going to be headed. The photos show what appears to be a dressed-up Black Park, which isn't located far from Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom, indicate that Episode IX is going to another snow-covered planet:

    One key detail indicates that this is not a return to Starkiller Base (which was completely obliterated at the end of The Force Awakens and would only appear through flashbacks) or even Hoth is the presence of a white, alabaster building. Not only is the structure and color of the architecture in these photos completely different to the kind shown on Starkiller Base, but its location is in the middle of a forest instead of in a relatively clear area like the castle in The Force Awakens. The wording on this set of photos seemingly indicates that there will be some kind of demolition occurring on the buildings, which appear to be filming predominantly for exterior shots from the looks of things.



    The operating philosophy with Episode IX is one that seems to indicate that we'll be getting a movie that takes us to a diverse set of locations, allowing us to see Star Wars on a truly massive scale. Like you, we can't wait to find out more, and we'll be scouring the internet for details as we approach this movie's release date.



    Star Wars: Episode IX will be released in the United States on December 20, 2019.

    @RockyRoadHux asked me exactly this today without even knowing this new leak. It's a good question though! Maybe it's time for Kylo to kill little teddy bears. There's blood in the snow everywhere! :p

    I have been keeping a close eye on rumours and leaks; especially the images which have been dropped. Am looking and there are a lot of forest shots, jungle, ash, snow. The vegetation is very similar. Now perhaps am way off but could it be we have three planets? There are rumours two planets being used for the Jordan set. However this third planet. Could we have the resistance somehow stranded and left there? Are we seeing a spring, summer, autumn, winter scenario on one planet? Probably a long shot I know but the vegetation is very similar and we can't be visiting different planets with the same trees?

    Might be Disney cutting corners but still they could you know add a little diffrence? It's going to look mighty boring if the planets are not different?

    Then again I might be losing it.

    Hm... I don't know, the set doesn't look particularly exciting. But well, it's just a piece of movie magic, who knows what the final product is going to look like. I hope to see some original-looking environments like Ahch-To, Crait, Mustafar etc. I mean - not like those particular ones, but something more interesting than generic forest/snow/desert planets.
