STAR WARS Scene To Feature "Thousands" Of Extras; Lucasfilm Aim For Different Tone To Marvel

Star Wars Episode VII has been filming near Wales and we have news on which actors were involved, the location they shot in and the fact that it featured THOUSANDS of extras. There's also details on the movie's tone, with Lucasfilm apparently trying to distance themselves from Marvel and Pixar.


According to Total-Geeks (via Star Wars 7 News) J.J. Abrams and the cast of Star Wars Episode VII recently paid a visit to Wales while shooting scenes for the movie in the nearby Forest of Dean. The site managed to catch up with the director - they even have a photo with him to prove it - while he was staying at the resort and they've compiled some details both from what they heard from him and observed while there. According to the site, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Pip Andersen, and Adam Driver were all there to shoot and some crew members were overheard talking about the scale of the scenes they were prepping for in Puzzlewood. They were reportedly there to shoot some huge battle scenes in the forests with thousands of extras said to be involved. 

Interestingly, the also add: "There was a lot of business talk at the resort, and with Kathleen Kennedy also heading back and forth the set, it seems there was a lot to discuss. One thing I do know is that there was a bit of strategising when it comes to the tone of the upcoming sequel trilogy. It was mentioned that Lucasfilm is aiming to differentiate themselves from the Marvel and Pixar brands within the Disney umbrella. To that end, they’re aiming for more of a unified, cohesive tone with the sequel movies… more so than Marvel’s MCU efforts, which tend to mix and match different film styles to keep things fresh." That's interesting, but good news for Star Wars fans hoping for a much more cohesive universe moving forwards. What do you guys think?
