According to this story, which I read via Google translations, it sounds like a crew from Star Wars: Episode VII will be in Iceland to shoot some plates for digital compositing this April. We have heard that some filming would take place there over the last year. When asked for a statement, there was a “no comment” response given to the Icelandic publication.
“plate”-shooting case where the shooting team takes pictures of the landscape beyond. These images will then be potentially used as a background when items are taken up with the actors in the studio. This was the case when the film crew commentaries Star Trek Into Darkness came to this country last year on behalf of the manufacturing company Sagafilm.
It should be noted that SagaFilm is an Icelandic independent production company.
