Time Out carries an awesome new viral video as Star Wars host lightsaber fight on Burj Khalifa, the same day as the release of Rogue One trailer
There’s always been a hint of ‘space age’ about the spectacular structures built in Dubai, none more so than the awe-inspiring Burj Khalifa.
Fitting, then, that Star Wars has chosen the iconic tower for a cool video almost certain to go viral, celebrating the release of The Force Awakens on digital download.
Of course, the movie’s connection to the UAE is deeper than just this clip, having had vast swathes of it shot in the region’s Empty Quarter. The desert landscape acted as the planet Jakku and can be enormously proud for having been part of the highest-grossing movie of all time, a feat it achieved in just 20 days.
