During a company earnings call, Iger dropped those tidbits that will surely set the Star Wars craze back in motion. An official press release states, "Disney and Lucasfilm are excited to announce 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."
Production starting so soon may sound rushed, and perhaps it is. With very little known about casting and characters, it leaves fans to wonder what they'll be filming exactly. Only a slew of press releases in the next month and a half can answer that (and probably will).
I'm excited to see where this film is heading; originally this was going to be very "Luke-, Han-, and Leia- centric" and hand the reigns over to a new cast. However, it may have them in supporting roles only.
Where do you sit on this fence? Leave Star Wars alone or "bring it on"?
