Star Wars 7 to be set 30 years after Return of the Jedi, Disney confirms
The sequel will start filming in London in May
The anticipated new Star Wars film will be set 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, producers have announced.
The statement is the strongest indication yet that Star Wars veterans Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mike Hamill will return for the sequel.
Disney said it was unable to comment on any further casting details at present.
The new film, directed by JJ Abrams, will start filming in the UK in May in London’s Pinewood Studios.
Star Wars Episode VII is due to be released in the US on 18 December 2015, after its release date was pushed back from summer to Christmas time last year.
