standalone movie

The Chancellor, George Osborne has made sure more Star Wars will be filmed in the UK.

George Osborne performed a Jedi mind-trick on Lucasfilm and Disney and made sure the next spin-off movie or standalone movie if you prefer will be shot at Pinewood Studios, UK.  Obviously tax break incentives and favourable exchange rates would have factored.

Mr Osborne said: “Lucasfilm and Disney’s decision to shoot the Star Wars standalone movie in the UK is testament to the incredible talent in Britain.

“This will mean more jobs and more investment. It is great news for people working at Pinewood Studios, from the set designers to the carpenters.

“As Chancellor I have been determined that we back our brilliant creative industries which is why we have invested in skills and training as well as providing tax relief for films, high-end TV, animation, video games and regional theatre. The further changes the government made to the film tax relief at Budget 2014 will support our highly skilled, innovative creative sectors so that they continue to thrive and encourage more films to be made in the UK.”

Star Wars VII is already being filmed in the UK.  The rumour is that the standalone movie will focus on Boba-Fett or Han Solo.
