With it recently becoming known that J.J. Abrams will be doing post-production work for Star Wars: Episode VII at his Bad Robot Production office in LA, now it's said part of the filming for the movie will take place in New Mexico.
Disney filmed The Avengers movie and The Lone Ranger in New Mexico, and now the website OneHeadLightink is reporting Disney is returning to the class A-1 studio facilities to film Star Wars: Episode VII, sharing production duties amongst London and Los Angeles. A local New Mexico news station has also picked up on the story with the website owner stating locations are being scouted, but it may not be a done deal.
J.J. Abrams previously let it be known that he wasn't happy having to move to London for production on Star Wars: Episode VII. It's looking more and more likely that Disney is catering to Abrams needs with more production on this side of the pond.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams.
