Today we are backing up a rumor that a Star Wars High Republic show to film in June. This is a story that’s been developing for some time and we have been involved. To begin with, there was a rumor a mystery movie was coming. After a bit of digging Jordan Maison, (backed up by us Here), said the mystery movie would be High Republic. Since then there has been no sign of a movie, but there is clues a new show is being filmed. Production Weekly has a new Star Wars show set to film in June with the working title ‘Grammar Rodeo’. Jordan Maison’s Cinelinx had already said this is the High Republic project they were talking about previously. Today we are backing that claim up from our own sources within Lucasfilm.
When asked, our source told us.
There’a s Star Wars series filming around May-December in Manhattan Beach. It’s the High Republic series. Working title is Grammar Radio. (Ok, they got slightly mixed up between rodeo and radio)
You can also see that Bespin Bulletin have covered this story Here and they say their sources have given them similar information about the location of the shoot. That’s information from Production Weekly, Cinelinx (Jordan Maison), Bespin Bulletin, and now LRM all saying roughly the same thing.
With that kind of independent verification from so many unrelated sources it’s hard to really call this a rumor. It looks like this Star Wars High Republic show will be aimed at a younger audience and star a younger cast. That’s something we heard from our previous coverage on this show, that at one time we mistakenly thought was a movie. This was something Jordan Maison said on all his coverage of this unnamed project also.
