Han Solo: New Details on the Fuerteventura Shoot.

Our friends from Supervivientes De Endor alert us once again for a new report, posted in a local Spanish newspaper revealing more details about the upcoming Fuerteventura shoot for the Star Wars: Han Solo standalone film.



From La Provincia via Supervivientes De Endor (translated by Google):


The dune area of ​​Cañada de la Barca, inside the Jandía Natural Park, will become the desert planet of Coreilla, an area where the young Han Solo came from and the place, where he became the best smuggler in the galaxy doing orders for Jabba the Hutt and where, according to Legends, managed to complete the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs, with its precious ship, the Millennium Falcon.



The Sur-Film production company intensifies the work to get everything ready before the film begins. In an area close to the unique place of Agualiques and much of the coastline of Barlovento, the base camp has been set up on a huge esplanade that has been built after the completion of important earthworks.

Enormous tents were built that will house actors and extras, as well as the crew of the shoot. From make-up sets, dressing rooms, bathrooms and so on. In another area there are numerous containers with, water and fuel tanks. Meanwhile, a swarm of workers continue with the assembly of the facilities.



The area is crowded with security guards to avoid any intrusion of personnel outside the film.

Yesterday diverse machinery that will be used during the process of preparation began to arrive. Early in the morning, three telescopic machines arrived at the Puerto del Rosario wharf. They arrived in the capital of Gran Canaria from the Peninsula, and were then shipped to the island aboard the vessel ‘Volcan de Tauce’, owned by the Armas shipping company.



The statement that this set will stand in for the planet Corellia, seems more like a speculation than a fact. They didn’t quote any source for that, and for now the appearance of Han Solo’s home planet in the movie seems more like a best guess. Actually it will be really strange if we don’t see Corellia in “Han Solo”.


Until now, in the official Star Wars canon Corellia has only been mentioned several times and never actually shown. Here’s Wookieepedia’s entry on Han Solo’s home planet:

Corellia was a planet located in the galaxy’s Core Worlds known for its ace pilots and large starships. Vessels such as the Millennium Falcon and Imperial starships were built on Corellia. At some point in the Imperial era, an organization known as the Corellian Resistance operated on the planet, fighting against the Galactic Empire. One of their members, Miru Nadrinakar, attempted to warn them of an upcoming crackdown. It was the homeworld of Han Solo, Wedge Antilles, Crix Madine, BoShek, the Besalisk Gadren, the bounty hunter Dengar, and the Jedi younglings Kalifa and Petro.


It’s worth mentioning that the planet’s climate in Wookieepedia is described as temperate and the primary terrain is forests, jungles and urban. As you can see that is a complete mismatch from the title image in this article, but who knows. My guess is that while we indeed may see Corellia in “Han Solo”, it may not necessarily be that location in Spain.



Another interesting fact from the Wookieepedia quote above is that Dengar is also born on Corellia. It would be cool to see the infamous bounty hunter in the movie, as he also appeared in the Original Trilogy, The Clone Wars and Battlefront, and there is definitely a fan interest towards him. Of course this is only speculation.


What do you think? Could this be Corellia? Do you want to see Dengar in the movie as one of the villains? Tell us in the comments below.



Again, special thanks to Supervivientes De Endor for the heads up.
