Star Wars: The Force Awakens Filmed In An Outdoor Tank

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.
