Finally!!! Official STAR WARS EPISODE VII news - When it shoots, When it's set & Who is in it

December 18th 2015 is exactly 21 months away from today, that's the day I will be nowhere but in a local multiplex likely consuming several showings of Star Wars Episode VII. For the last 16 months there has been rumour after rumour, leaked story after leaked story, assumption after assumption but very little in the way of factual news coming out of Disney and LucusFilm.

Today we finally have something, a couple of something's to be exact. officially announced that "principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will commence May 2014, and will be based at London's historic Pinewood Studios.". We've long thought it was about that timescale but it's nice to finally have it confirmed.

BUT that's not all!

On the same announcement they added "It has also been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII is set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, and will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces."

All those rumours that it would only be a few years after Jedi and they were recasting were tosh!
We WILL see some familiar faces, in fact they will be very familiar faces, it has to be the big 3, surely?
Plus there's a trio of new young leads, interesting! You can take your pick of any 2 from this fine selection of actors and still have room for Lupito Nyong'o.

I can't help but think there is a big casting announcement on it's way, or maybe, just maybe, they will hold out until May 4th!

Are we excited yet?
More Star Wars news as we get it.
