U.K. studio operator Pinewood Group, home of the James Bond franchise, says it’s reached a long-term lease agreement with The Walt Disney Company.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the arrangement will allow Disney to take all the stages, backlots and other production accommodation at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.
Pinewood is Europe’s largest provider of studio space, and Disney has been using the facility as the home for some of its biggest titles for several years.
“They’ve been making great films with us for many years and the fact they want to shoot so many more here is testimony not only to the quality of the teams and infrastructure at Pinewood, but also to the British film industry as a whole.”
Paul Golding, chairman of Pinewood Group
Disney’s Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast; Disney-owned Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Black Widow; and Universal’s The Huntsman are among the other movies that have shot at Pinewood in recent years.
