Han Solo Filming for Three Weeks on Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

Filming for the upcoming Han Solo film will take place over the course of three weeks on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura.

Thanks to our friends at www.lafosadelrancor.com, we have learned that the Han Solo movie is heading to the Canary Islands for a few weeks of filming, specifically around Cofete and La Pared, a beach on the island. Here is another photo of the area:

A public application has been posted for those that live on the island to appear as paid extras or support staff. We always like seeing new planets in Star Wars movies, is it possible this beach represents an area of Corellia? Perhaps it’s not a new planet at all, as some northern inland areas of the island look very familiar, could Han Solo be spending some time on Tatooine?

Thanks to the source at caleta.fuerteventura we will be kept up to date on the details about the filming at this location, so we’ll keep you posted as they discover more information.

        Telling them I live there isn’t far from the truth, 2/3 times a year, does that class as a resident!
        Don’t think the wife would be happy, but it would be a dream come true!

    So long as it’s not a DESERT island. Though I think that islands are the new desert planets of the Disney films considering we already have Anch-To and Scariff.

      I found the crystal in my father’s castle on Mustafar.

      I can’t buy that rumor. He may have something around his neck but it’s not Vader’s lightsaber crystal, that saber was destroyed with the Death Star II, fell down the reactor shaft when Luke cut Vader’s hand off. Now if Vader had spares that’s one thing….we’ll see. But it is not from Vader’s saber.

        It’s from the Mustafar stash… *giggle*

    Fuerteventura looks nothing like Tatooine. I doubt they are going to an island to film nothing but desert. If you are going for Tatooine, you go to Tunisia, or if there’s an unstable political situation there, go back to Abu Dhabi for dunes, Death Valley for the rocky parts.

    Man I hope that rumor about the hidden Jedi is true. I’m one of those fans that actually likes the Jedi and wants to see more of them.
