Rumor has it that the next Star Wars movie is being filmed quite close to home. Reports are that the movie will be filmed about 3 hours from Central New York. 

According to WLEB, a portion of the next Star Wars movie will be filmed just outside of Scranton, Pennsylvania. The portion they film 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 Scranton and the surrounding area. Reports claim that a big reason in choosing to film in Pennsylvania 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 released just yet. What we do know, the website WLEB is a fake. WLEB 21 is a fantasy news site. All news articles on are satire or pure fantasy. Don't plan your next road trip just yet.
