Star Wars: Episode VII to film in Abu Dhabi

Makers of Star Wars: Episode VII have chosen Abu Dhabi to recreate desert planet Tatooine, home of Luke Skywalker and Anakin.

Filming is set to take place in the UAE capital for four weeks according to the Hollywood Reporter, after it was chosen ahead of Tunisia, where it was originally set.

Tatooine is also where Jabba the Hutt has his headquarters.

The news comes days after the Fast & Furious 7 crew were scouting for locations in the UAE.
