Sander De Lange brings his first solo outing on The Official Star Wars Blog as he looks at real-world locations of the saga.

Ever since the first movie came out in 1977, fans have always been dreaming about living in that galaxy far far away. While that may be difficult in some cases, there are still a lot of places existing in the real world where the movies have been filmed and that can be visited. In this blog series we explore these locations by country with an extra focus on the country’s backgrounds and what else is worth your time before or after visiting the locations.

In this first part we start with the small town of Finse in Norway that was the site of the Battle of Hoth and where Luke met the Force spectre of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
