Turf Being Supplied to Pinewood Studios for Star Wars VII?

Tillers Turf

Yep, we know how this sounds but it’s the real deal. With the lack of any Episode VII news from the past few days comes this story from a UK based company, who revealed that they will be supplying turf for the new Star Wars movie…

 

The Tillers Turf Company is a leading grower of cultivated turf (grass) for landscape and sport, supplied throughout the UK and Europe. Here’s what they’ve just shared on Twitter (via MagnarTheGreat):

 


 

We knew about the desert planet, we’ve heard about the Iceland shoot and some snowy sets and now we have a grassy environment. Is this for a new planet or just some decoration? It’s funny that 2 days ago John Boyega posted this on Instagram titled “New week! New planet!”:

 

 

So are they filming on a new grassy planet at Pinewood Studios this week? Time will tell.

    I’ve heard that about Harrison Ford, that he’s on grass.

        JarJar would be the worst mistake ever (if itΒ΄s not a Death scene) but what if they introduce a cool badass gungan? A character so cool, that he redeems his whole race πŸ˜€

        A smuggler/Bounty hunter type, with eyepatch, ugly scares, earpieces cutoff & a really cool helmet etc. .. & those “mustach”things captain tarpals have, that makes him look so much more mature than Jar Jar

        A character so cool & Cold, that you donΒ΄t even Think of him as a gungan

            EVEN cooler if this badass Bounty hunter gungan kills off an old & weak JarJar for some reason, not even caring that he is a fellow gungan.

            With that said: I never had any problem with JarJar , but I know a lot of people do, except that they could have tried too make him a Little bit cooler, instead of just “funny” & clumsy…

            ps. he should have a name, the badass gungan πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

          I always liked Captain Tarpals for being Jar-Jar, but competent and kind of cool. Shame he died in The Clone Wars.

            Yes, Tarpals is a good example of a cool Gungan. He was funny without being utterly goofy.

            (Not a Jar Jar hater but even I can admit that the exaggeration of his bumbling ways was not a smart move)

    Wait the grass is real and not GCI LAME!!! I like my Star Wars to be shot in a studio in front of green screens thank you very much.

      actually, smart-ass, much of it WILL be shot in a studio in front of a green screen.

        Much of it? Shout the f*ck up, you ain’t no idea about how I’m making this flick. Go back to school prequel prat.

      FYI, the Naboo grass in “The Phantom Menace” was real, according to the “Making of” book. Muren and a camera crew shot footage of grass in the Marin hills that was then composited into the Naboo hills scenes.

        Hey it might have been real grass in Ep. I still look artificial with all of the special effects added to it in some spots. With Ep. VII the more realism the better.

    They are just using the grass as an extension of the green screens. It is going to get replaced by sand in post

      I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.

      Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth.

    If the rumours are true & they are indeed looking for Luke, then maybe they have to visit a lot of planets in the search…

    Interesting that Boyega wrote: “new week, new planet” because if he is involved in the search, then he will also have visited all the planets πŸ™‚ (hopefully they are all new)

    Its cool to see the actors and actresses are really into the movie they working on. You dont really see that too often. I have high hopes that the new cast will be perfect along with the movie and its story

      i would feel so good, to see real presence & Chemistry on the screen & the feeling of that Everything totally worked out πŸ™‚

      this could possibly be the best star wars Movie yet & i hope it is, because then ep.8 & 9 will probably take us on even greater adventures…

      at least you see that everyone involved is very dedicated, that dedication will surely rubb of on the final product

      i find this interesting too (going to filmschool next year) practical details are often forgotten & that is one of my favourite things with star wars: the attention to detail.

      they can spend a lot of time & Money on a character or a setpiece that is only visible in the background for a few seconds & that is was makes star wars so beilivable πŸ™‚

    Is it illegal to tweet that you are supplying something to a movie production when you are actually not? Certainly a good marketing move if it’s not a crime. I might announce my company is supplying fizzy drinks and copies of The Daily Mail to feature in the building of the new Jedi temple scene.

      The grass in the Prequel Trilogy wasn’t CGI, though.

    In addition to the grass, there’s a report claiming that some of the shots to be filmed will include clouds in the sky.

    There is a new grassy planet in the new Star Wars: Commander game called Dandoran. It is described as in a system near Tatooine. It was used in the initial rebel mission before you decide which side to be on and then was just featured in the first campaign missions that ended earlier today.

    Could this make it into ep7? Could it be what they are filming now?

    Sorry for the website, but the lack of news is good news to me, it means JJ is running a tight ship, one of my mistake with the PT is that I knew too much going in. Even now I can’t help it and I need to come here and look for info….when there are none I am happy lol….

    The Star Wars universe must have a Park planet. That’s what Luke’s been doing all these years: groundskeeper, decked out in his orange flight suit piloting a John Deere…
