In keeping with the tradition of Star Wars having a key place in its heart for the UK, by a poll of our forum users at the UK site, it was decided to officially name our base


'Elstree Base'. thumbsup


A fitting tribute to a film industry legend.

Star Wars - Episode IV - A New Hope, was shot at Elstree Studios during 1976.

George Lucas was so impressed with the facilities that he returned to shoot the sequels, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of The Jedi.

The majority of filming for the prequels was done in Sydney but the final scenes of Revenge of the Sith were shot at studio 8 at Elstree Film & Television Studios.

Rick McCallum, producer of Revenge of the Sith told the Borehamwood and Elstree Times:

"We could have shot anywhere in the world, but Elstree's our home, even when we're not shooting here, we have a production office there."

thanks Oki - Elstree is our spiritual home I guess - I am hoping to visit there myself soon.


A few of our members have already been there on tours of the studios - and even had the opportunity to hold screen used props - thats a dream....!
