You may be watching Star Wars "The Book of Boba Fett" and imagining the exotic locales they must have filmed it in. But... "parking lot in Carson, California" probably wasn't your first guess. Took this flying over the set in March 2021. #StarWars #BobaFett

And this is how the set looked in the second episode. Really amazing the technology they have now to transform a parking lot into another world.

I am also guessing "giant hole in the ground in Pacoima" wasn't at the top of your list as Star Wars filming locations... yet here you have it. Filmed April 2021. #StarWars

And yes… as many have pointed out and for those not familiar with LA… this “galaxy” is indeed where you would park to watch the @LAGalaxy soccer team play.

Final one... did you guess "rail yard on the way to the oil refinery" was a #StarWars filming location? This was built for #TheMandalorian only a few blocks from Manhattan Beach Studios where "The Volume" immersive screen was housed. Seen on Google Earth in honor of @ai6yrham
