After the drone footage of the Episode VII set hit, a call came out asking for a stop to drone activity due to a no-fly zone enacted to protect filming that was scheduled to happen via helicopter. And now footage of the helicopter filming has surfaced!
What exactly they are shooting remains a mystery, but I find it interesting that the copter is coming in low for a shot. Perhaps it is plate footage for a landing or a crash? Or it could be a simple establishing shot. It’s really anybody’s guess but kind of cool none the less. Thanks to @MarklewisUK117 for the share!
