The Isle of Skye is reportedly set to feature as a filming location in Star Wars Episode VII.
The Sun newspaper reports that the rugged island off the west coast of Scotland is being lined-up as a "mountainous planet" for the JJ Abrams' directed movie.
A source said: "Location bosses feel Scotland possesses stunning scenery perfect for movie backdrops. They will look great on the big screen and the rock formations will replicate the perception of mountainous planets.
"It will be the first time Star Wars has ever been shot north of the border."
Previous Star Wars movies have been filmed on location in Tunisia (Tatooine in Star Wars), Northern California (Endor in Return Of The Jedi) and Watford (Naboo in The Phantom Menace).
Carrie Fisher was talking about her return to the Star Wars world a few days ago.
