Filming on Star Wars Episode 7 to end in three weeks
Filming on Star Wars Episode 7 will finish in three weeks, producer Kathleen Kennedy has said.
Speaking as Industrial Light and Magic, the special effects company founded by George Lucas, opened its first studio in the UK, Kennedy was quoted by the Guardian as saying it was “quite remarkable standing here within three weeks of finishing filming on Star Wars episode VII”.
The effects house has been opened to begin the complex special effects required to make the film, meaning that the vast majority of the new Star Wars will have been both filmed and created in the United Kingdom.
Original Star Wars stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew are returning for the new film, with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Lupita Nyong'o among the new additions to the cast.
Star Wars Episode 7 is due for release on December 18th in 2015.
