Star Wars: Episode VII Starts Filming in May, Set 30 Years After Jedi

Long-zoom cameras and Google Earth satellite sleuthing to the ready, Star Wars fans!

Amidst a constant storm of rumors and speculations (and weird not-logos) Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that Star Wars: Episode VII will begin filming this May. The movie, set to release on December 18, 2015, will start filming at the famous Pinewood Studios, based in London. It has also been confirmed that the film will be set three decades after the events of Return of the Jedi and that it “will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces.” Yay! Check out the full press release here.
