The BBC's Lizo Mzimba points out
on Twitter that, according to Pinewood Studios' website
, Star Wars: The Force Awakens
filmed in the studio's exterior water tank.
Pinewood's project listing for The Force Awakens
includes "Exterior Tank
" among other locations in the "Filming Facility" section. The movie also shot on the Paddock Lot
and the Richard Attenborough Stage
The 806,000-gallon outdoor tank is large enough to allow "complex set construction" and is backed by a blue- and green-screen setup to facilitate digital compositing.
