A similar visual treat is now offered in the second part, raising the question of where Rebel Moon Part Two: The Scargiver was filmed. So here are all the filming locations of Rebel Moon 2.

Inyo County, California, USA

Rebel Moon 2 Filming Locations

Rebel Moon 2 was mainly filmed in Inyo County, a county situated in eastern central California. The county is known for housing the Death Valley, a desert valley that is considered the hottest place on Earth during summers. The desert made Inyo County the perfect place to shoot the otherworldly sequences of the film. The producers of the movie also received tax benefits from the California government for filming in the state. They reportedly got $16.6 million in tax credits after spending around $83 million on the production of the film in California. Apart from Rebel Moon, some other films have also been filmed in Inyo County. These include Bulletproof, From Hell to Texas, Will Penny, Desert Son, The Rawhide Years, The Ballad of Andy Crocker, and Cassidy of Bar 20.

Common Locations with Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire

Hence, Rebel Moon Part Two: The Scargiver shares common filming locations with Part 1: A Child of Fire. The shoot majorly took place in California, in the cities of Los Angeles and Santa Clarita. LA, being the hub of Hollywood productions, was chosen as the filming site for the VFX-heavy film.
