Stars Wars is doing big business at the moment with worldwide box office returns of over 3.1 billion dollars from the last two movies, and one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe is the roguish smuggler Han Solo famously played by Harrison Ford. The still untitled young Han Solo movie and the second Star Wars anthology spin-off is expected to be released May next year and is tipped to break box office records.
Any avid Star Wars fan will know that Corellia is Han Solo’s birthplace and the venue where, according to the legend, he completed the Kessel race in less than twelve parsecs aboard the Millennium Falcon. The area of Cañada de la Barca, located in the Jandía Natural Park, has now become the scenario of Corellia and the images below show where the movie is being filmed.The images were released by the Earth Observation company Deimos Imaging, a subsidiary of the Canadian UrtheCast Corp., and captured by its satellite Deimos-2 on May 19, 2017.
Launched in 2014, Deimos-2 was designed for cost-effective, dependable very-high-resolution Earth Observation applications. Providing 75cm/pixel pan-sharpened images, it is the highest-resolution non-governmental satellite in Europe, and one of the very few privately owned submetric satellites in the world.
