Star Wars: Episode VII is actually happening.
Announced on 30 October 2012, the film will be the first feature to result from Disney’s $4bn purchase of Lucasfilm.
Scheduled to arrive in May 2015, Episode VII: (subtitle as yet unknown) will kick off a whole new trilogy of Star Wars films (and don’t be surprised if there's more than one trilogy).
Little is known about the sequel, which will follow chronologically from Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi.
George Lucas’ biographer has suggested the possibility that the film might follow Luke Skywalker in middle-age, while Mark Hamill has said that he doesn’t know if he’ll be reprising his role as Luke Skywalker for the next installment.
The story so far of Episode 7 has been a rocky one, but we can’t wait to find out more details on the film in the coming months.
