It’s been a couple of days since our last Star Wars story, so it’s time for another update on the highly anticipated film.  The firm production dates of Star Wars: Episode VII have been hard to nail down, but a spring start-date was necessary in order to keep the pic on track for its December 2015 release date.  Indeed, HitFix has confirmed through multiple sources that director J.J. Abrams’ sequel will begin filming in mid-May and will shoot through September.  Not a crazy short schedule, but not a particularly lengthy one either.  Hit the jump for more.

Further firm details are, as always, few and far between at this point, but now that we know filming will be underway in London in just a couple of months, expect firm casting announcements relatively soon.  Star Wars: Episode VII opens in theaters December 18, 2015.

    Without Actors!!! It’s JJ’s newest thing. All of these actors have been coming in just to be filmed so that JJ can make new computer generated characters that are amalgamations of all the actors who tested for the part. It’s super secret. You probably haven’t heard about it

  • Dave

    so basically everything we’ve already known. yawn

    I have a feeling, knowing J.J.’s reputation, that we won’t find out who the cast is until the film is finished filming. I may be wrong, but I think, because we haven’t heard any confirmations, that that could be a possibility.
