Well, I'm taking a small break from gaming news to bring you a very exciting announcement that I believe many of you will be glad to hear!
Star Wars: Episode VII is coming!
LucasFilm formally announced on StarWars.com, "production of Star Wars: Episode VII will take place in the United Kingdom."
Kathleen Kennedy, President of LucasFilm, went on to say, "We've devoted serious time and attention to revisiting the origins of Star Wars as inspiration for our process on the new movie, and I'm thrilled that returning to the UK for production and utilizing the incredible talent there can be part of that. Speaking from my own longstanding connection to the UK with films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire of the Sun and recently War Horse, it's very exciting to be heading back."
The six previous Star Wars films have all been filmed in the UK, and once again LucasFilm will head back to shoot Star Wars: Episode VII.
The film will be directed by J. J. Abrams from a screenplay by Michael Ardnt, and is scheduled to release in 2015.
Are you excited about Star Wars: Episode VII? What do you think the new storyline will be? The only notable screenplays we know of from Michael Ardnt are Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3 :/
Sure they were award winning screenplays, but still . . .
Nothing like Star Wars.
Anyway, enough rambling . . .what do you think?
