STAR WARS: EPISODE 7 Has Started Filming!

Filming has begun on Star Wars: Episode 7!  As a lifelong Star Wars fan, I cannot believe it’s actually happening.  Sure the prequels were a huge let down.  But that doesn’t matter; right now, somewhere near London, J.J. Abrams is sitting behind a monitor with cinematographer Daniel Mindel directing Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow!  And next year, on December 18, we’re going to get the first of many new Star Wars movies now that the franchise is under the control of Disney and Kathleen Kennedy at LucasFilm.  While some of you might be nervous, I’m extremely optimistic.  I really believe we’re at the beginning of a road that will inspire a new generation, and remind older fans why they fell in love with Star Wars in the first place.  This is the best I’ve felt about the franchise since 1998.

With production beginning on the biggest film of 2015, Bad Robot has tweeted an image of the film slate from the first day of filming.  Check it out after the jump and let me know if you’re as excited as me in the comments.
