Massive Star Wars Set Built In Sleepy Rural Village Sparks Outrage Among Residents




  • A quarry zone in a quiet UK town has been transformed into an “intergalactic war zone.”
  • Locals are complaining about the massive Star Wars set built in their village.
  • The set is for the upcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi.
  • The new show will star Ewan McGregor together with Hayden Christensen.

Residents of a small town in the United Kingdom are reportedly unhappy about a Star Wars set built on their village. According to reports, the massive set was created for the upcoming Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi.

As it appears, the quarry site located in Little Marlow, Bucks has been transformed into an “intergalactic war zone,” much to the dismay of locals living in the typically silent and peaceful town. So while Disney has obtained approval from the council, the residents aren’t exactly enthusiastic about the whole thing and are now complaining about pollution, traffic, and wildlife disruption.

The area has always been “quiet and peaceful” – until Disney came to build the huge set.

In a media interview, an unnamed source said:

“This is a massive production and a hugely lucrative franchise – but obviously not everyone locally is pleased to see Disney moving in.

“It might generate some jobs, but this is a pretty rural area which has always been quiet and peaceful – the thought of turning it into some sort of intergalactic war zone to make TV shows is horrifying.“

Filming for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series is expected to start this March.

“The set is massive, with great big buildings on it alongside loads of heavy duty machinery coming and going – it’s just totally out of keeping with the countryside vibe here and people are up in arms about it,” the source likewise added.

Ewan McGregor is reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi. Hayden Christensen will also return as Anakin Skywalker.

So far, the highly-anticipated series – which Lucasfim President Kathleen Kennedy dubs as “the rematch of the century” – still does not have a confirmed release date.
