    Star Destroyer exterior...

    Rosemary reveals,
    “I had a crew working for 6 months out at the blimp hangar where we shot the battle scene with the alien horses running.
    So much of that set is all real, in camera!
    It was 200’ long and 40’ high and required a lot of set dressing detail...”


    ...Which we’ll tell you about in the new Year!

    The city of Kijimi...

    Rosemary says,
    “This was an amazing total design and build on the backlot at Pinewood. Exteriors and interiors...

    We access Babu Frick’s workshop through a bar where STAR WARS composer John Williams is the bartender! We made an homage piece for each of his Oscar-nominated films: that would be 51, but we skipped the STAR WARS films so we made 46 objects, some which now reside at Lucas films...”

    Babu Frick’s workshop, Kijimi...
    They need to access a hidden memory in C3PO’s database.
    A potentially perilous problem...

    Babu Frick’s droid workshop is one of those brilliant sets we’ve come to expect in a SW film...ingenious elements in a very industrialized third-world, brilliant recycling, reinterpretation, reuse of scavenged parts...
    These depictions are always a favorite of STAR WARS fans, which translates into it better be great! And it is!

We’ll have a full article with exciting never-yet-seen photos in the very, very, very near future, 
but to give STAR WARS fans a treat, here are a couple of snippets that Set Decorator Rosemary Brandenburg SDSA generously shares, with a bit of a twinkle in her eye!

 
A peek at…
...the Rebel Base jungle set with the huge spaceship built overhead...
"We had an enormous job there as Construction did the shell, we built and applied all the detail. We also did Rey’s cave, with her work area where she was building her own Jedi saber, and Leia’s cave. We shot this on a huge stage at Pinewood, with additional footage at a park by Pinewood which we turned into a jungle, Did you notice our custom made huge camo nets overhead?"
 
…the exterior of the Star Destroyer
"I had a crew working for 6 months out at the blimp hangar where we shot the battle scene with the alien horses running. 
So much of that set is all real, in camera: it was 200’ long and 40’ high. Set dec did a huge amount of the detail on it!”
 
...Kylo Ren's Star Destroyer interior was spread over 3 large stages, with changeovers on each:
"Kylo Ren’s white chamber - Set dec also provided a huge contribution here, look closely…   
The big black Conference Room was a triumph. I designed the chairs and the conference table and we added a ton of detail everywhere.  
The hallways and huge Landing Bay were on a much larger scale and more elaborate than they’ve ever been done before…."
[More details on these soon!]
 
…The city of Kijimi…
"This was an amazing total design and build on the backlot at Pinewood.
Exteriors and interiors.
The Kijimi workshop, AKA the Droid Shop or Babu Frick’s workshop, was one of our favorite sets. 
You access it through a bar where STAR WARS composer John Williams is the bartender! We made an homage piece for each of his Oscar-nominated films: that would be 51, but we skipped the STAR WARS films so we made 46 objects. Some of them are in the movie, but now they reside at Lucas films…" 
 
Much more to come! 
The Festival on the desert planet Pasaana, the ruined Death Star, the legacy sets reproduced, such as the Millenium FalconLuke’s resurrected Xwing, the Skywalker home on Tatooine...and so much more!
 
See you on the other side of the New Year…
Enjoy!
