Gather up Star Warriors, 2019 is a big year for you. After 40 years of twists and turns, Star Wars is inching closer to the epic conclusion. Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker is set to debut in summer of 2019. Scenes from the trailers show a lot of desert action. A closer look at the behind-the-scenes shows that the production was shot in a desert – The Wadi Rum, a desert valley in Jordan. Despite being a sci-fi movie, it has few digital effects. Which is not easy to pull off. The directors had to create a road stretching for miles into the desert and a small town for the crew, cast, and extras. Fun fact, the Jordanian Military, and its royal family were involved in the creations.
With all the stops the Star Wars crew is pulling to present you with an epic movie, the least you can do is show them some love. Since it will debut close to the Christmas holidays, what better way to do this than buy Star Wars Christmas jumpers? PopGear has a creative collection of Star Wars designs that you’ll love.
