According to a recent report by Hitfix.com, Star Wars: Episode VII now finally has a concrete start date for when the filming will start: May to September. 3 months may seem like a short time, especially given how big the franchise is, but according to HitFix, Abrams will also be spending around fifteen months in order to complete the film in post-production. It is not that unusual for additional re-shoots and pick-ups to happen during post.
Of course, there is still the matter of casting. There’s been a lot of rumors but that’s all they are so far. Hopefully, official casting announcements will come in the following weeks.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode VII will open in the UK on 18 December 2015.
