Pic: Tatooine being filmed in IMAX for Star Wars: Episode VII?

Oh, man. That’s going to rock.

So I guess they’re doing some real IMAX shots for the film then and it won’t just be a conversion? That’s good news!

Apparently this image is from the Abu Dhabi, the location services says Los Angeles, however. It appears Abrams changed his stance on filming on the format.


UPDATE: /FILM confirms:

We emailed an IMAX rep, who said the following: “All we can say at this point is that we can confirm that JJ Abrams is using the IMAX camera for Star Wars: Episode VII.” They also confirmed it is shooting film. So while Abrams made a big deal of shooting Episode VII in 35mm, he’s going even bigger too: 70mm IMAX.

They also added:

UPDATE: Pajiba also added that Abrams is shooting the film on three, 65mm 2D IMAX cameras. (There are only four in the world and the other is being used for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). After that, it’ll be converted to 3D just like Abrams did on his last film Star Trek Into Darkness.

So that settles it for now. Star Wars: Episode VII is apparently going to be an IMAX event not to miss.
