    A new Star Wars film is getting closer by the day, and Lucasfilm and Disney have just announced some new information on the status of the production. Episode VII — co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams — is set to begin shooting this May at Pinewood Studios in London. For the first time, however, the team is giving an indication of what fans can expect to see when the film hits theaters in 2015. According to today's release, it will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi, which capped off the original Star Warstrilogy, and "will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces."


    The latter reference is no doubt a nod to what has been rumored for months: that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill could return to the franchise to reprise their roles as Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Luke Skywalker. Jedi came out in 1983, just over 30 years ago, which would bring the ages of the older actors and their characters right into alignment. As for that new trio of leads, casting rumors have been running rampant, with Adam Driver (Girls) recently named as a likely candidate to play the villain. None of the casting information has been confirmed just yet, but with May the 4th — unofficially known as "Star Wars day" — and San Diego Comic-Con coming up, we wouldn't be surprised to see some very big announcements made before the end of summer.

    I am not listening to any Star Wars 7 announcements until they officially announce that Carrie Fisher will play a duel role in the movie. Princess Leia of course and Hippo the Hutt, Jabba the Hutt's fatter and more disgusting wife looking to see revenge on Leia for killing him.

    BETH: "Howard, does Don know anyone connected to LucasFilm?"

    HOWARD: "Not sure. Probably not, why"?

    BETH: "No reason. Forget it!"....(pouts and stomps away)

    JJ Abram is a 'friend' but don't think he is willing to risk the HSS Jinx

    Mark looks like he can drop some weight and still play a convincing action character. Harrison and Carrie, not so much...Ford looked ridiculous in the last Indy movie and that was 6 years ago.

    Oh yeah I forgot. JJ Abrams wouldn't even use Beth to be in a extra in a costume. :snicker:

    Anyway, looking forward to this and the storyline with Harrison, Mark and Carrie.

    For no reason at all I really believe these movies are going to be great. If there not then that's it for Star Wars.

    Doing a Jedi Academy movie would be a great start - avoid any mention of galactic politics. Just NOT an alternate timeline like ST.

    Holy shit that is fucking Leah???? What the fuck???? She looks like Vader when he had Luke take off mask!

    Carrie Fisher: Luke take off my mask so for once I can gaze upon you with my eyes.

    Mark Hamill: But father you will die.

    Carrie Fisher: It is to late for that now my son. Remove my mask.

    She and Mark Hamill have been working with personal trainers since they signed contracts months ago. See post #3.

    Makes sense. They could easily shave some years of Luke and Han via makeup. Billy Dee probably still looks like he's in his 40s.

    Carrie Fischer may need to get her shit together a bit though.

    Not really. Not bad for 76 but he has a hard time getting around. But, unlike Harrison Ford, his mind is intact.

    This better not be a pc, "diverse" cast. It's bad enough I have to deal with minorities on Earth.
