I Love Filming In… the Forest of Dean!

As you may be aware by now, the brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens production was filmed in some of the most breathtaking and interesting regions in England.

Did you know that a big chunk of the film was filmed in Puzzlewood, right here in the Forest of Dean? The forest is a natural playground and lends itself to many productions from Doctor Who, Merlin and Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows Part 1.

The wonderful people over at Creative England have created a video all about the process of shooting in the Forest of Dean, as well as the benefits of filming in England as a part of their I Love Filming In… series! It features an interview with the Location Manager, words from Producer Kathleen Kennedy and you’ll get a sneak preview of some behind the scenes footage – but best of all, it’s spoiler free!

See the video below:
