‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Details Revealed

Solo Children
Dark Horse Comics

Time to dust off those replica lightsabers you’ve stored away, because details have finally emerged about the long-awaited sequel to ‘Return of the Jedi.’

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced that principal photography on ‘Star Wars: Episode VII‘ will start in May, and that the first round of shooting will occur at London’s Pinewood Studios, which was used in classic movies like various James Bond films, Christopher Reeves’ Supermans, the ‘Alien’ series and most of the Harry Potter movies. Add director J.J. Abrams to this mix, and we’re more excited than ever.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ will take place roughly 30 years after the events in ‘Return of the Jedi,’ and “will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces,” according to Lucasfilm. These familiar faces include Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.

Because the story takes place 30 years later, that means actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford could reprise their iconic roles, since ‘Return of the Jedi’ was released nearly 31 years ago.

The new characters will most likely envelop the storylines found in the various ‘Star Wars’ books and comics that take place after ‘Episode VI,’ including narrative featuring Leia and Han’s children (seen above), and Luke creating a new Jedi order.

The new movie also finally has an official release date: Dec. 18, 2015. So mark your calendars.
