‘Star Wars: Kenobi’ Will Be Filming in Boston, England, Not Our Boston
Sometimes a lack of proofreading can lead to big misunderstandings. Recently, the Film & Television Industry Alliance posted that “Star Wars: Kenobi” was being filmed in Boston, Massachusetts next month, according to masslive.com.
But what it meant to say was the series is being filmed in Boston, England. You know, in the United Kingdom.
To Boston fans, that may as well be a galaxy far, far away.
Due to the enormous success of the "Mandalorian," the new Star Wars spin-off series “Star Wars: Kenobi” is set to begin filming soon.
Ewan McGregor will be reprising his role as Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi for the series which is reportedly partially set on Tatooine. Tatooine you will recall as a planet that is mostly desert and has two suns.
Although Star Wars fans will be disappointed that the new series is not being filmed in Boston, Massachusetts, that doesn’t mean all movie production has halted.
In fact, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence were recently seen filming in the city. They are working on a new Netflix film “Don’t Look Up.”
I suppose with mask-wearing the two are able to keep a low profile while working in Boston on the film. I mean, if you wear a hat and a large mask you could probably wander around the city unnoticed.
It’s nice to hear that there are some people working on new films during the pandemic. I’m sure the safety precautions are extreme, but we need some new content to watch.
