Exclusive: Andor – Full layout plan and shooting details revealed
The UK’s largest tabloid, The sun, revealed images of the exterior sets of the upcoming Disney + ‘Andor’ TV series in the sleepy British town of Little Marlow, sets that the newspaper incorrectly attributes to the Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series.
Fantha Tracks has reviewed the site’s public archives and we have been able to confirm that the set is in fact for âAndorâ. Although we will not be posting any correspondence, we have seen who confirms this as we want to protect the private details of those involved in the deal, we can show you photographic evidence that it is the whole Andor set out below. below.
Finally, we can also exclusively bring you the complete shot of the official site, as well as the details of the filming plans of the site.
The newspaper article focuses on reports that the local community is not happy with the production.
… It sparked dozens of complaints about disturbing wildlife, light pollution and traffic in Little Marlow, Bucks State, where council chiefs let Disney use a former quarry site.
Photos from the site show a huge construction alongside a lake in a former quarry, with dozens of small buildings forming a town alongside a host of large marquees that are expected to contain changing rooms and other production facilities.
A source said: âThis is a massive production and a hugely lucrative franchise – but obviously not everyone is excited to see Disney move in.
âIt could generate jobs, but it’s a lovely rural area that has always been calm and peaceful – the idea of ââturning it into some kind of intergalactic war zone to do TV shows is horrible.
âThe set is huge, with very tall buildings next to loads of heavy machinery coming and going – it just disagrees with the countryside vibe here and people are angry.
The newspaper also falsely claims that the production will remain on the site for three years. Read on to know the real schedule …
Photo proof is the Andor set
If you look again at the “ Andor ” sizzle reel, released as part of the November Disney Investor Day announcements, specifically at the 54 seconds and 1 minute 25 seconds marks (which we have a screenshot of below), you will be able to compare and contrast that the sets in the newspaper photos above are the same as the sizzle reel. This is particularly evident with regard to the building with the three circular doors at the 1 minute 25 second point. You can clearly see in photo “# 2” that leaked the same building, and across the street, the circular alley where the sizzle coil is moving.

General layout of the site and the whole
Fantha Tracks can exclusively reveal the entire site and the overall map that we were able to obtain via the public freedom of information registers.
Our research also revealed that the original plan was for a shoot from March 2020 to December 2020, but the Covid-19 lockdown delayed this and a lease agreement between Disney and the owners of the Buckinghamshire Council Property & Assets Directorate site was repelled.
Initial approval was given on March 6, 2020 by the Wycombe District Council (now Buckinghamshire Council “ Wycombe Area ”) which approved the temporary change of use of Spade Oak Lake / Quarry and surrounding areas for the purpose of filming. But on March 23, notice was given that production was on an initial 30-day lockdown. Although some site clearance has started at this point. Lockout and shutdown would continue.
On July 7, notice was given that filming could now begin on or around August 1, and that the nine months of “authorized development rights” initially granted would begin at that time. Until April 2021. Filming hours were limited from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, with occasional Saturdays between 7:30 am and 1:30 pm.
On October 14, authorization was requested to extend the temporary planning permission for a period of three years. The reasoning being that following the impact of Covid-19 on operations, including the significant number of people on set at any given time, âa longer period is now required for the film set. It is not definitive that the operation will last 3 years, but it is expected that this will allow sufficient time for the operation to be completed and leave the site. The correspondence went on to state that “inevitably there will be times when, despite best efforts, key team members will have to isolate themselves.” There will also be travel delays and periods of isolation for actors and staff traveling abroad. Consequently, significant delays are expected (and have already been encountered since the start of work on the film set.) â
However, on November 10, 2020, the request was changed from three years to a six-month period from May 1 to November 1, 2021, supplemented by the first nine months granted which end on April 30, 2021. This request included a schedule change. filming from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., with occasional filming on weekends. Filming would not be every day and hours would vary “depending on what is being filmed, weather conditions, light conditions, etc.”
The extension request has met with strong public opposition and remains undetermined.
It’s exciting to have Star wars filming again on UK soil, but we urge our readers not to visit the premises. The site is bordered by a lake and a Thames Water sewer park, and has 24/7 security guards. You won’t get anywhere near the shoot. The UK is also on nationwide lockdown and no one is expected to make non-essential trips.
The faster we get through the pandemic, the faster they can do more Star wars, we can all get together for conventions and sit in a movie theater watching news Star wars movies.
Let’s support the cast and crew in these difficult times behind our computer screens, and let them continue the difficult production work in these times with enthusiasm from a distance.
