1. Cleveleys Beach
Despite the production company, believed to be E&E Industries, keeping tight-lipped, it seems that Star Wars has indeed come to Cleveleys. The series being filmed is believed to be Andor, the prequel to hit film Rogue One, following the character Cassian Andor five years before the events of the flick. Road closures remain in place on sections of the Prom until May 11 while filming takes place.

2. Canary Wharf, London
The modern Canary Wharf station was featured in Rogue One where Jyn Erso is being chased by stormtroopers. Location scout David O’Reilly said at the time: "We needed a space transport hub and it looks so futuristic, we felt Canary Wharf station would be perfect."
3. Puzzlewood, Coleford
One of the most well-known UK filming locations for Star Wars is Puzzlewood. Scenes from The Force Awakens include interactions between Rey and Kylo Ren after she escapes Maz Kanata's castle. The ancient woodland site has also been featured in Harry Potter, Doctor Who and Merlin.
