Rumor About Han Solo Movie Now Filming Near Southampton Confirmed?

Thanks to our Cantina members @StoneRiver and @Lazarus Dei. the Daily Echo confirmed a recent rumor about a new set in Fawley Power Station.



Secrecy is high as usual, but the residents are already accustomed to filming crews at the location. Here are some comments regarding filming at the station from the Daily Echo:


But locals have welcomed the filming, which comes two years after Mission Impossible 5 was partly shot at the same location.

Fawley resident Mike Cooper said: “I think it’s absolutely brilliant.

“You see lots of expensive cars with dark tinted windows driving down in the morning, like you did when Mission Impossible was being filmed. You know that there is someone famous in there.



Fawley Tower Station provided interior and exterior shots for MI:Rogue Nation, for example in this sequence:



Check out the thread of our two members in the Cantina or speculate in the comment Section. To me it looks like a new planet with its cold industrial look, but who knows…

    I am a HUGE Star Wars fan and love Han Solo’s character. I hope they show when Han Solo defeats the Kobyashi Maru exam in Starfleet Academy by cheating.

      On the other hand, can you imagine William Shatner playing Han Solo? I’m picturing him yelling ‘Khaaaan!’ as he’s being lowered into the carbon freezing chamber. And what if Spock replaced Chewie? Greedo, Dr Ezevan, Bobba Fett and Kylo Ren would’ve all been neck pinched into submission before they could manage to shoot either first or second.

        I’d honestly love a star wars book about the bridge of a star destroyer written like they do star trek. Officers and commanders discussing stuff. It’s why I always loved the space stuff in the thrawn books about tactics and maneuvers

        OK, half-credit for creativity.

    I can see Fawley tower from my window 🙂

      Maybe they are staying at Fawlty Towers down the road in Torquay. 🙂

        Torquay is a good 2 hours drive. Unfortunately the Gleneagles Hotel which inspired Fawlty Towers was demolished about a year ago. I think they actually got John Cleese down to give it a right good thrashing with a branch until it was reduced to gravel.

          Wow, thank you for that imagery.

    • May 17, 2017 at 2:35 pm

      I can see it from my desk at work!

    It’s a truck in a parking lot. Seriously. A truck in a parking lot and a some idiot that says I bet there’s a famous person in that car. Stop it. Stop it now.
