PUEBLO, Colorado Numerous news outlets are reporting that a portion of the next Star Wars movie will be filmed just outside of Pueblo, Colorado. The location in Colorado will represent a previously unknown planet in the Star Wars universe.

Writer and director Rian Johnson is said to have personally chosen the location and will need the help of a large number of extras from Pueblo and the surrounding area. Reports claim that a big reason in choosing to film in Colorado is that the state has recently been providing significant incentives to production companies that choose to film in their state.

No other details have been provided so far except that filming is set to begin sometime next year.
