January 2nd, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

What better way to start the new year than with an Star Wars: Episode VII rumor? Recently we heard the script for Episode VII is expected to be done soon, and for a few months now we’ve been hearing that filming would begin in Spring of 2014. So now it seems we might actually have an exact date for filming to start: April 22nd.

This rumor comes from a tweet by Ali Arikan, who is a Roger Ebert correspondent:


What do you think?

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a script that he wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. The movie is rumored to focus on a new generation of heroes and could include appearances by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in older versions of their iconic characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. The film is expected to begin production in Spring of 2014 and will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
