One of the oft overlooked aspect of the Star Wars lore, were (to me) the locales the characters had dwelled and fought in. It is one thing to have custom-made tailored costumes, alien-designed suits, and even spaceships, but the “biggest” background n these sci-fi-films, is the geographical backdrop - and by that I do not mean the blue/green-screen computer generated sort, yeah?
Build them in studio? Or dress up an existing location? Things like these intrigued me so (especially when I was actively designing for films & media “back in the day”… Location, LOCATION, LOCATION!) … these days however, I marvel at how even “LOCATION” can be used beyond a physical context!
Interestingly, I spotted these model cars (from Hot Wheels) at the local toystore, and was amazed the toymakers utilised the planets as name/inspiration for their model cars! I only saw two locales being used: “Mustafa” and “Jakku”. In Singapore, we will say; ”Like that also can, ah?”
