Jebel Rum

Jordanians have long known the beauty of Wadi Rum, but filmmakers have taken a bit longer to discover the desert. It was only recently that Hollywood realized the rusty sand and rocks had something extraterrestrial about them, choosing Jebel Rum and its sister mountains as the scenery for the planet Jedha in the Star Wars movies Rogue One and The Rise of Skywalker. Visit the towering mountain and you might just expect to see a Star Destroyer hovering overhead, or a band of plucky rebels hiding among its crags, hoping to bring down a galactic empire.
