Is a newish filming location for an old world set to return?
A pal of Making Star Wars has some evidence that Episode IX is returning to film at the Cardington Sheds, which were used to film Yavin base in Rogue One. The could signify that Yavin will be a location in Episode IX… Or they could be used for something else. Mystery!
Yavin IV, first seen in A New Hope, does have some significance to at least one of the new sequel main characters – It’s where Poe Dameron grew up. The planet was pinned down as his homeworld in the 2015 comic Shattered Empire, which starred his parents, Shara Bey and Kes Dameron. The exteriors for Yavin were filmed in Guatemala, where Oscar Isaac was born.
