STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Production Moving To Abu Dhabi Not Morocco
Looks like it's not Morocco that will be the home of Tatooine in Star Wars: Episode VII, but the United Arab Emirates. Abu Dhabi and the surrounding area will be the site of production for at least four weeks starting in May. Adam Driver and Peter Mayhew have been the only cast members confirmed for the film.
"Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Star Wars: Episode VII will shoot in and around the city-state, which is part of the United Arab Emirates, beginning mid-May. Sources also say it would be a four-week shoot."
