Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmed on 125 studio sets

Star Wars The Last JediLucasfilm built 125 separate sets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, filming across 14 stages at Pinewood Studios near London.

“The original script had about 160 sets in it – a ridiculous amount,” said Rick Heinrichs, the film’s production designer, in comments to The Hollywood Reporter. 

“I didn’t say that to Rian because I figured on something this big he’ll find that out on his own - it’s a 100-day shooting schedule. So there’s more than one set a day you have to prepare for.”

The Last Jedi is the second in the new trilogy of Star Wars films that began two years ago with The Force Awakens

Production was based at Pinewood Studios, which has become the home of the Star Wars franchise and has since hosted standalone movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, focussing on the young Han Solo.  

Studio work for the new films has involved extensive set building to return to the much-loved physicality of the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm – and indeed Hollywood more broadly – has veered away from the visual effects-heavy aesthetic that came to define the Star Wars prequels of the late 1990s.

Filming locations for The Last Jedi included Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, the Salar de Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia and also Dubrovnik in Croatia, which hosted a week of shooting early last year.
