    I live near this location; I'll try and keep an eye out for any activity. Some of the original cast are believed to be in Kent already; Anthony Daniels has already been seen and spoken to the local media.

    Its a shame such a sad scene is shot there. We'll miss 'em.

    It almost seems fitting. This saga can be beautiful and painful at times.

    While I may not be fluent in 6 million forms of communication, when you say "NOooooooo!," that's an Imperial code for YEsssssss!, correct?

    No, yeah, cool location news...

    I could see that working as an interesting location. A lot of modern buildings in the background of that photo that would have to be removed in post production. I wonder if the horizon is "cleaner" if the camera were facing the other direction?

    Looks like a pretty cool place to shoot - I wonder what planet we're looking at? With a ruin or two, it looks a lot like Tython.

    Cool place. But I don't understand what Anthony Daniels or any other member of the cast would be doing there now? Shooting won't begin until, what, 2014? Doesn't make sense IMHO.

    Long natural trench? Looks like a chase sequence.

    Nah, that was jungle. It looks kinda like Naboo. Honestly, at this point they have covered all general planet ideas. Now, it will slight variations on the same themes.

    I guess the one real distinct location we haven't seen yet is a massive commerical space station of some sort.

    Also, another location is apparently rumoured in Herne Bay too (again, in Kent).

    A ruined church, on the coast, is going to be used. Have no idea what for, but the location looks similar to Vader's castle.

    (Here is a picture of the church)
