The Star Wars galaxy isn't so far, far away anymore for UK fans!
Disney and LucasFilm have announced this month that a portion of filming in the production of Star Wars Episode VII will take place within the UK. While specific production locations for this ambitious revival of George Lucas' iconic franchise have yet to be revealed, that we know some of the movie's shooting will take place in our home region via director JJ Abrams is exciting news enough right now. Little is known on the film's actual plot just yet, but with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher all-but-confirmed for returns, we at the very least know for sure that there'll be plenty of homages to the past on show this time around.
Star Wars Episode VII is set for release in cinemas worldwide in May 2015, with shooting set to commence in the UK in Spring 2014.
