Production crews have migrated to Little Marlow ahead of the start of filming on the latest Star Wars television series starring Ewan McGregor.
Little Marlow will be transformed into a galaxy far far away for the latest television series from the juggernaut franchise with McGregor reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The spin-off stand-alone series will also see Hayden Christensen return as Anakin Skywalker. It is one of many Star Wars series planned to air exclusively on Disney+ over the next few years, filming is set to start in March.
Unsurprisingly, when one of the biggest media corporations in the world brings A-list movie stars to town, the production is massive.
Dozens of small sandy buildings have been built on a former quarry and huge marquees have been set up to home the filming crew. The Sun report these temporary structures could be in place for up to three years.
The report stated that dozens of residents have complained already about the disruption to wildlife, potential pollution and traffic delays this production could cause. An unnamed source told The Sun: "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.
“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.”
