A source said: “Netflix are in love with  Scotland so, once again, they are heading here to film.

success so the third instalment of the movie franchise is just around the corner, with Vanessa and Netflix returning to Scottish soil.

“Again, filming will take place in Glasgow and Edinburgh, with pre-production shots starting in November.

Vanessa Hudgens says she is “obsessed” with Scotland

Hudgens later revealed she was “obsessed” with Scotland but had found Edinburgh difficult to pronounce.

She said: “It looks like Edin-burg, but you can’t say Edin-burg, so I was like Edin-brah. That’s where I landed.”

Screen Scotland, which supports filming in the country, said: “Scotland’s competitive film & TV funds, world-renowned talent, crews, facilities and locations and  the UK’s attractive tax breaks drive strong international interest in Scotland as a  filming destination.”

Glasgow City Council’s film office said: “In recent months, a number of  major film and broadcast productions have been filming in Glasgow  and we look forward to welcoming more during the remainder of the year.”
