As the filming of Star Wars in Dubrovnik draws near everybody is very anxious to try and get the best possible information from the ground. We now know some of the areas will be well closed off for the public making it difficult to get a curious eye anywhere near the film set.

Dubrovnik set will be guarded by production’s own drones which will have a task of disabling unauthorized camera drones from getting a look at what is going on on the set, as reported by Croatian news portal tportal.hr.
