Where was Andor filmed? Real-world filming locations explored


Since The Mandalorian pioneered the use of StageCraft video wall technology, every live-action Star Wars series that has followed has been produced using the incredible studio suite known as Volume.

However, the latest addition from a galaxy far, far away, Andor, doesn’t follow this trend and instead was shot on real-world locations and traditional studio sets.

But where exactly was Andor filmed and why did the crew choose real filming locations over Volume?

Andor: Release date and drawing preview

Andor lands on Disney+ on Wednesday, September 21, 2022.

The series begins five years before the events of Rogue One and tells the story of the growing Rebel Alliance and how it grew from a handful of individuals into a fighting force capable of wiping out the Galactic Empire.

At its core, the series centers around the titular Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and follows his journey from thief to good-for-nothing to hero of the rebellion.

But Cassian’s rebellious quest will not be easy as the galaxy is subjugated to the Empire at the height of its powers, while intrigue, deceit and betrayal lurk around every corner.

Where did Andor film?

Andor was filmed in a number of locations across the UK.

Filming on the project began in November 2020 after several delays due to the Covid-19 pandemic and continued for 10 months until September 2021.

Production of Andora was based primarily at the famous Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, some 18 miles from London, where much of the filming took place in the interior studios.

However, the series also used real-life locations around the UK, including quarries at Little Marlow in Buckinghamshire, near Pinewood Studios, as well as the disused Winspit Quarry in Dorset, Middle Peak Quarry near Wirksworth in Derbyshire and Coryton. An oil refinery in Corringham, Essex.

Filming also moved north to the seaside town of Cleveleys on the Fylde Coast near Blackpool, as well as across the border to Scotland, where production took place at stunning Glen Tilt in Perthshire and the nearby Cruachan Dam, which features in a number of Andor’s trailers.

Why didn’t Andor use Volume

Unlike The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor did not use the innovative StageCraft technology that has exploded in popularity in recent years.

Rather than shooting in a studio surrounded by LED screens, the production used as many real locations and traditional sets as possible.

Speaking to IGN at Star Wars Celebration in early 2022, Andor executive producer Sanne Wohlenberg said, “We haven’t worked with StageCraft on our show at all, no.”

Instead, Wohlenberg revealed that the decision was made to shoot “as much as possible on camera” because Tony Gilroy wrote for the series that it didn’t fit within the confines of the Volume set.

“We can be different,” added actor Cassian Andor Diego Luna. “Rogue One was kind of an homage to the original Star Wars, A New Hope and this kind of very theatrical way of filming where things are really there and you can work with them. And I think we had a lot in this, and it’s beautiful as an actor to react to real things and play a game with a lot of actors.”
