It was a unique and wonderful thing for us to be able to go and have coffee at the city’s historical district and get some photos of actual Star Wars Episode VIII sets at a leisurely pace while doing so. Truly, a wonderful thing.
Still, there was so much to photograph and not even our vigilant eyes were present at the ground 24/7. National and international journalists were there in numbers and that helped as well, but the ones who probably spent the most time sneaking around the sets, listening out for any information from the crew, and trying to catch a glimpse of any part of Star Wars universe on display – were the fans.
We are therefore calling all the fans to let us know about their Dubrovnik experiences. One of many Croatian Star Wars fans who made the pilgrimage to Dubrovnik to see the Episode VIII in the making is Igor from the city of Varazdin. He published an interesting story about his trip on his blog
and was kind enough to let us go through his material for something interesting, and indeed, we found a few very cool photos we didn’t see before.
Igor took to the City Walls to get a nice aerial shot of the production tent in the Old City Harbour and Great Onofrio’s Fountain we wrote about yesterday.
While on the City Walls he managed to get some shots of the crew assembling the set used for filming.
There were very few images of City Walls set published in the media, as the location is easy to close off by the production and not many scenes were filmed there.
FUN FACT: when we first heard the City Walls are going to be one of the locations, this is the image I published (courtesy of Insider Holidays) to show the people what the walls look like…
…which means I pretty much guessed the exact location of the filming on 1,4 miles long walls. I used the force… no other explanation.
We’ll leave you with a few random images of the props and sets from various locations. Nice job!
