Star Wars: Episode IX’s Jordan filming and what social media tells us about who may be on set

Last July, MakingStarWars.net broke the news that Star Wars: Episode IX would be filming in Jordan. Since then a set in Jordan has been discovered by a Reddit user. There have been social media posts which also lead to clues about who is filming in Jordan and as of now it looks like the location could be really huge for all the main players in the final episode of the Skywalker Saga. Our friend KroiSolo was curious about what was up with Rey and Kylo and and resorted to Twitter sleuthing. Adam Driver’s recent schedule changes seem to line up with Daisy Ridley’s filming in Jordan. Obviously this is circumstantial but if you’re as interested in Star Wars: Episode IX as we are, this pertains to your interests.
