If all we’ve had over the past few days were well established rumours and unofficial stories, no one can deny “this thing is happening” anymore. After we’ve brought you the news of the (practically) confirmed Star Wars filming dates and locations in Dubrovnik, there has been a media storm to have the final official confirmation. Last night the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Andro Vlahusic gave a statement to RTL Croatia News from the United States where he had a meeting with Lucas Film representatives. He confirmed the filming is not only taking place, but is definitely being done in and around some of the most iconic Dubrovnik landmarks which made the city vastly popular among travellers from all over the world and earned the acceptance into UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list.
We were very excited to share the news during an appearance on the podcast by Star Wars Report Blog, run by some thoroughly cool people dedicated to providing Star Wars fans with all manner of up to date information about their favourite obsession. The podcast is due to air on Monday 15th of February, check out their website for the details.
