Star Wars News July 2014
According to Cinemablend.com, it has been confirmed that the Episode VII will take place 30 years after the end of Return of Jedi. That means Episode VII will detail the events which took place after the Battle of Endor. It is also being rumored that the plot of Episode VII is going to revolve around Luke, Leia and Han Solo. Therefore, it would also make sense that Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford will be heavily featured in Episode VII.
On May 16, 2014 Episode VII began filming. This marked the first live-action Star Wars movie to go into production since Revenge of the Sith. It is also rumored that filming began in a new Tatooine set that was built in the Abu Dhabi desert. However, it has also been stated that the majority of filming for Episode VII will be taking place in England at the Pinewood Studios.
