Where was Teen Wolf: The Movie filmed? We discuss the fan-popular film and its locations. It does not contain spoilers.
Way back in 1985, there was a movie called Teen Wolf, starring Michael J Fox. It was basically a coming-of-age story, with Scott Howard, played by Fox, realizing that he is, in fact, a werewolf.
The curse has been passed down to him by his father, also a lycanthrope, who had hoped that Scott might not inherit this power. Scott reveals the news to his best friend Stiles and keeps it a secret, but while playing basketball, Scott turns into his wolf persona, and the team wins their first game in three years. The school ends up with Wolf Fever, and Stiles launches a line of merch.
Fast forward to 2011, and writer Jeff Davis decides to revive the property, this time as a TV series, and leaning far more into fantasy horror and drama. No merch. The show becomes a hit, the characters and their relationships are backdropped against struggles with supernatural demons, finding the perfect mix that makes shows like this and Buffy The Vampire Slayer, rating winners.
However, after six seasons, the show is canceled, and fans, of course, lament. However, the news that there was a new Teen Wolf movie, that will pick up where the show has left off had fans rejoicing.
On January 26th, 2023, you will be able to finally catch up with the wolf pack, not on our screens since 2017. There are probably a lot of things you want to know, but this small and personal article has been designed for you fans out there that wonder where was Teen Wolf: The Movie filmed.
Where was Teen Wolf: The Movie filmed – a breakdown of locations
It appears that principle photography started on the project in March 2022. From what we can discover, the filming had finished and wrapped up in May 2022.
- It appears that for all intent and purpose, the film may have been shot in Atlanta, Georgia, and Southern California. The TV series would film regularly in areas around California including Pacific Palisades, Thousand Oaks, Glendale, Calabasas, and Chatsworth. With a lot of location filming taking place here for the TV show, it makes sense that the film may have used tried and tested areas for filming the movie.
- The same school was used whenever the TV show had to film at a school. The Beacon Hills High School, where a lot of action takes place in the TV show, was actually Palisades Charter High School in Glendale California.
- Although it has been hard to find anything set in stone, Atlanta seems to have been used in filming Teen Wolf: The Movie. Atlanta is no stranger to the camera crews and production teams from the movies, and there have been so many great films that use the location. The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead, and even Anchorman 2 have all been filmed there, and there are good reasons to film there. There are plenty of rural and stunning scenery so all kinds of genres can be accommodated. there are financial advantages too, and of course, the area is easily accessible through the international airport.
Is there a trailer for Teen Wolf: The Movie that might help with locations?
There is, so we studied it, but a lot of the footage looks studio-based or green screen. However, in the opening shot of the trailer, we see a lovely shot of a lonely truck on a bridge, over water, surrounded by trees. Does anyone recognize that? And shortly after, we see another drone shot of a dense woodland area. It might be stock imagery or maybe Atlanta. Let us know if you have any ideas.
