It looks like the new Star Wars Episode VII film might be better than the first. While Disney chairman Alan Horn remained mostly tight lipped during an interview at the Loyola Marymount School of Film and Television in Los Angeles, he did let it slip that “Star Wars Episode VII” has already begun shooting and has much of its cast.
Star Wars VII Begins Filming
J. J. Abrams is attached to direct the film based on a screenplay written by himself and Lawrence Kasdan, who acted as co-writer on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Originally, Academy Award-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt was attached to pen the screenplay after writing a 40-50 page treatment. Arndt has since dropped out of the production, although it remains unknown whether he will be credited. Producers include Kathleen Kennedy and Abrams’ long-time collaborator Bryan Burk. Star Wars creator George Lucas will act as creative consultant on Star Wars Episode VII (and other new Star Wars films). It appears likely that cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will reprise their roles from Episodes IV, V, and VI along with a cast of younger unknown actors and actresses playing the lead roles.
Disney and Star Wars VII
In October 2012, The Walt Disney Company acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion and announced that it would produce three new films, with the first film, Star Wars Episode VII, planned for release in 2015. 20th Century Fox still retains the distribution rights to the first two Star Wars trilogies, owning permanent rights for the original film Episode IV: A New Hope, while holding the rights to Episodes I–III, V, and VI until May 2020.
