The island of Fuerteventura has been revolutionized since the arrival, last Friday, of the American actress Angelina Jolie for the filming of the Marvel blockbuster The Eternal. Jolie arrived at the majorero airport accompanied by her children and, far from being inaccessible, had no qualms about posing for some photos with the fans waiting for her in the terminal. The North American blockbuster takes place in the Caleta de Fuste area and will last for 12 days.
Angelina Jolie is located in a luxurious hotel in the municipality of Antigua and has been seen in the commercial area of El Matorral, a town very close to the filming area, accompanied by her children and shopping.
At least her daughter Zahara and the twins Vivienne and Knox are with her. Many tourists did not come out of their amazement when they saw her enter, in a summery white dress, to buy from various establishments such as the Women'Secret lingerie store and also in a well-known chain of Chinese shops in the Canary Islands called Chinatown, where he acquired several items to celebrate the Halloween party that will be attended by much of the film crew. Similarly, Jolie didn't hesitate to buy a giant stuffed rhino at a toy store,

The filming is being carried out with strict security measures and under absolute silence, although some images of sets installed in the towns of Antigua and El Espinal have transcended on social media, such as a gigantic replica of the famous Ishtar Gate of Babylon,
For this prequel to the Marvel universe, a total of 800 people have been moved to Fuerteventura, of whom 300 are from Disney's production team. The cast of protagonists of The eternal is complete d'etat with Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh and Don Lee under the direction of Chloé Zhao. At the moment, apart from Jolie, no more stars have been seen on the island,
It is not the first time that Fuerteventura has become a cinematic set. Last year, a total of seven productions were filmed, including Han Solo: A Star Wars Story and Wonder Woman 1984, that have left a profit of 100 million euros on the island, according to Fuerteventura Film Commission. George Clooney was also on the island this summer looking for locations for his new project that also includes Tenerife.
