Local media in Dubrovnik have already mentioned the rumour about Star Wars production renting out a ship or boat to use for filming. It is today that we hear stories about one of the vessels in Dubrovnik harbour being fitted with unusual looking add-ons on one of its decks that resemble parts of the set seen in other areas of the city. Also, a big screen seems to have been put up and that one may be used to hold the green screen made for facilitating CGI. DuList published the story with photos below.
There are no confirmations a ship will be used in the filming or that this is the one in question, but these photographs do suggest this could very well be more than a rumour. If this is so, what are the scenes to be shot on a ship? Will we get to see large aquatic vessels appearing in Episode VIII? The few we’ve had so far were less than impressive, this would be a perfect opportunity to try and improve on those.
