Is Star Wars Episode 7 filming in Atlanta, Georgia?

Throughout Atlanta, Georgia there have been production and directional signs for ‘Star Wars 7‘. Is ‘Star Wars Episode 7’ filming in Atlanta?

Well before you get your Chewbacca costume out of the closet, it is unlikely that the movie is actually filming in the ATL.

Currently, Star Wars is filming in the UK at Pinewoods Studios. Despite, the new Pinewoods Studios complex that opened several months ago outside in Atlanta, we highly doubt that Atlanta is the filming location for Star Wars.

There have been reports that the upcoming Star Wars movie may film in Arizona or Los Angeles. However, there have been no formal announcements saying that Star Wars will film in Atlanta.

Many people have speculated that it is a big prank just to get Star Wars fans excited. It is also believed that this could be a possible commercial filming in Atlanta.

Ultimately, for major motion pictures that are trying to keep the movie details a secret, they usually give secret names. For example, the Divergent Movie Series is secretly titled ‘Mineral‘ to protect the details surrounding the movie.
