We recently heard there was some reshoots for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in England being conducted on a very small scale. Now Star Wars 7 News has uncovered some work going down in Los Angeles. That makes as you may recall one of the things Abrams requested for taking the gig on The Force Awakens was the ability to build a post-production studio at Bad Robot which he is probably using about now if he hasn’t already. Here is a screen shot of the information from Aaron Kennedy’s Facebook:
The landscape of the Greenham Common sets are not too hard to match in Los Angeles if any exterior work is being done. Here’s an interesting bit though. Latino Review heard a rumor about Chrome Stormtroopers:
There is a chrome Stormtrooper and s/he appears this way because that armor has the power to CLOAK.
IMDB has had Aaron Kennedy listed like this:
It is kind of interesting to see those rumors interface. Aaron Kennedy has a lot of tattoos so I would imagine whatever role he will be playing, they will be covered (not because of anti-tattoo bias but because they’re very earthly in design). Playing a Stormtrooper or a Chrome Stormtrooper might be a good way to do that. But I suppose long sleeves and gloves can solve that too.
Pretty interesting stuff!
