#1 Eadu: at Mýrdalssandur, Iceland


A short drive from the village of Vík in Southern Iceland, being at the vast Mýrdalssandur black lava sand flats will have you feel like you’re on another planet. It is formed from material washed out from underneath the Mýrdalsjökull glacier during Katla eruptions, an awe-inspiring sight that sets the moody, foreboding tone of Star Wars’ planet Eadu.

#2 Scarif: at Laamu Atoll, Maldives


Planet Scarif looks like an island paradise, with white sand beaches, clear blue waters and idyllic palm trees. The inhibited island of Gan, the largest island in the Laamu Atoll and in Maldives, was the backdrop of the massive battle scene that took place on Scarif. Don’t worry, the explosions were shot far away at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England.

#3 Jedha: at Wadi Rum, Jordan
