Construction work for Star Wars: Episode VIII set launches in Dubrovnik

Decorations and props were installed in the old town of Dubrovnik, Wednesday, for the set of a Star Wars: Episode VIII scene that will be shot in the Croatian city.

The production of the new Star Wars: Episode VIII has already launched in the UK and the crew will move to Dubrovnik for two weeks in March, beginning on March 9. At present, constructing work is ongoing on the iconic Stradun street and is scheduled to finish just ahead of the shooting period. The filming of Star Wars in the city is expected to attract tourists and promote Dubrovnik to film buffs around the world.

Dubrovnik featured in King’s Landing and was the fictional capital of Westeros in Game of Thrones for the HBO show.
