Star Trek 2 has begun filming today, and several facts about the production have emerged.
According to TrekMovie.com, the movie is being shot on Sony Studios stages in Culver City as well as at the Hollywood Paramount lot.
One place the filming will not be happening is Hawaii. Although J.J. Abrams went to Hawaii to check it out as a possible place to film a “jungle planet” scene, a location in Southern California was ultimately chosen for those scenes.
Star Trek 2 will use more sets, including sections of the USS Enterprise not seen in 2009’s Star Trek XI, than were used in the first film.
