EXCLUSIVE: ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ reshoots filming from July until September at Black Park. Minor movement at the sets. So, for the past few weeks I’ve been keeping track of TRoS’ movements at Black Park in England. For a few weeks we’ve seen one location being fenced off, the area where they filmed the Millennium Falcon last summer. Today at this site, we’ll call the it site one, there’s now security, generators and a cafe of sorts. The biggest thing is that there is now a poster up, advising those visiting the park that a film production will be in certain area’s from July until September - you can see the poster in my first image. Today, another area has been fenced off. We’ll call it site two. This area’s fences are also covered with camouflage netting like site one. Site two seems to be prepping a big set with the area having lots of wood and site offices. There’s also a third area which is scheduled for filming in August, this area, site three is the exact same area as filming for the swamp and snow planets took place. You may remember pictures from late last year and early this year of a lake, this is that area. This area will only be filming for two days.

It is, as the saying goes, a dark time for the Rebellion—and for everyone else involved in the Star Wars franchise, as things are astonishingly quiet out there right now. Could it be that the silence persists because everyone is working on projects in the lull between Star Wars Celebration and D23? Perhaps the looming shadow of Comic-Con International in San Diego is soaking up the conversation in the nerd sphere. Or maybe, there's just … nothing to actually talk about right now when it comes to Star Wars. Well, nothing aside from the news below, of course.

Probability of accuracy: It would certainly appear to be true, and definitely checks out in terms of timeline before the movie gets released.

Deal - Shoots - Star - Wars - Rise

The real deal: Apparently, additional shoots are underway for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, with a couple of sources reporting that Black Park in the UK has been closed off for either reshoots or pickups, with an X-wing fighter being part of the additional shots. Apparently, there's a notice that the shoot might continue through early September, which feels unexpectedly late considering the movie is scheduled to hit theaters in December. If true, expect some very late nights for editors and the visual effects team. But don't worry about the movie having reshoots this late in the game; these days, such things are common, so this is unlikely to be some kind of Rogue One situation where the entire movie gets significantly changed after the first pass at production.

Probability of accuracy: This is vague enough to be easily explained away in multiple directions depending on what the finished movie is like, but let's go with "accurate" for now.

Deal - Daisy - Ridley - Press - Appearance

The real deal: Daisy Ridley, who's currently doing press for her appearance in Ophelia, has been...
