Star Wars: Andor Dorset quarry set images leaked online

Photos of the latest Star Wars: Andor set have leaked online, showing Winspit Quarry in Dorset transformed into a production set for filming of the upcoming TV show.

The team producing the set closed the Winspit Quarry on April 27th. A sign outside the shoot stated that the area will be closed until May 21st.  

Set five years before the events of Star Wars: Rogue One, Andor will explore the backstory of Cassian Andor. The 12-episode series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ and will follow the formative years of the rebellion. 

This isn’t the first time images of the show have surfaced online. Images of a transformed cafe in Cleveleys appeared online last week. The team behind the show transformed a popular tourist destination, giving it a distinct Star Wars look.


Winspit Quarry

Winspit Quarry is located near Worth Matravers, a rural village on the East Dorset coast. The quarry’s caves have been used as locations in several TV shows including Blake 7 and Doctor Who. Disney’s 2012 film John Carter also used the quarry as a location for the Orkney Dig. 

Tourists took the photo below of the set from above, as there are numerous paths still open in the area.

Additional Leaks

Images from filming leaked online in the past few days as well, offering even more of a glimpse at what Star Wars: Andor is going to look like. The images contain spoilers, so you’ve been warned.

As you can see in the images below, Cassian will face Coastal Defender Stormtroopers, much like he did in Star Wars: Rogue One.

Star Wars: Andor will release in 2022, exclusively on Disney+. Several high-profile Star Wars projects are in production, including an Obi-Wan Kenobi set between The Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
