They always try to tell us that Star Wars happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but let me tell you one thing: that’s not true. In fact, Star Wars happened on our planet Earth! That’s right!
Let’s take a look at some places you can visit where some iconic and not-so-iconic Star Wars scenes were filmed.
Hardangerjøkulen Glacier, Norway
I wanted to start us off with the easier to pronounce ones. Anyhoo, this location is where most of the planet Hoth shots were filmed.
Redwood National Park, California
The national park was the set for the Forest Moon of Endor, where the Ewoks live. Leftover Ewoks are quite often misidentified as Bigfoot.
This is also known as Tatooine. I think most people know it as Tatooine.
Royal Palace of Caserta, Italy
This location was used to film the Theed Palace scenes in episodes I and II.
This place is where the shots were filmed for the Alderaan backdrop to put on the green screen for most of episodes II and III.
