Star Wars Identities Exhibition – London 4k UHD

Image

In 2017, London hosted an exhibition about Star Wars (Star Wars Identities). It featured some Original props and art. Also, visitors got a chance to create a virtual character of their own, based on all Star Wars locations and characters. Definitely worth visiting for true fans (although a bit small).

Attack of the Clones : Italy

Image

For the second prequel to Star Wars (Attack of the Clones), Anakin marries Queen Padmé in the end. Not in a galaxy far away on Naboo, but in the European country of Italy. The building used is Villa del Balbianello and is located near lake Como.

Raiders of the Lost Ark – Anahola Mountain

Image

The Paramount Mountain used in the opening scene of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” can be found on Kauai. It is Anahola Mountain.

 

Raider of the Lost Ark – Huleia National Park

Image

In the opening scenes of “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, Indiana Jones is looking for the lost Idol in Peru… the crew went to a more tropical location, the Island of Kauai. Spielberg would return here for his blockbuster “Jurassic Park“. For Indy, the boulder scenes were also filmed at the wildlife refuge.

Kipu Falls is the spot where Indy shoots his guide (who tries to shoot him first, but maybe in a new Special Edition version, this will be altered…. #Greedo)

A New Hope – Djerba

Image

Why not travel to a galaxy far, far away? There is one place filled with the most wretched scumm and villany on the planet, where you are able to find a captain bold enough to take you there. Mos Eisley spaceport ofcourse, filmed on the small Island of Djerba, Tunesia. The home of Obi Wan was also filmed there.

Star Wars – Tikal

Image

In Star Wars – A New Hope, Han flies the Falcon over Yavin IV where he is checked by the rebels in a tiny tower. The location for this shoot is in The Americas in Tikal. The hidden rebel base is ofcourse the famous Maya tempel in Tikal.

A New Hope – Exteriors Lars Homestead

Several miles away from the hotel location used for Lars Homestead, the exteriors were filmed. This is the place where Luke watched the twin sunset.

 

A New Hope – Lars Homestead/Lukes Home

Image

Want to sleep at Luke Skywalkers place? Well, now you can! The location where George Lucas filmed the Original Star Wars movie, is a hotel. Many locations in the area were used for filming and some names are used in the films as well (Tatooine sounds a lot like a Tunesian town in the neigbourhood). Exteriors for Lars Homestead were filmed at Chott el Djerid.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – Granada

In the third installment of the Indiana Jones movies, Marcus Brody (played by the late Denholm Elliott) arrives in Iskenderun by train. Iskenderun is not a real town, instead the Spanish Guadix Railway station was used for filming.
