In 1979, the entire Star Wars movie crew lived at Finse 1222. People such as Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, to local extras lived here. “The Empire Strikes Back” was partially filmed outside the hotel but also further up the glacier, it was a huge production. Finse is the snow planet “Hoth” for many thousands of Star Wars fans. It is a meaningful place for them, even today.
