It’s also learned from LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy that filming on Star Wars: Episode is near completion (via Variety).

We are standing here within three weeks of finishing ‘Episode VII.’ This continues a long tradition of filming ‘Star Wars’ in London, going back to 1976. It is remarkable this all came together in less than two years. ‘Star Wars’ is filmmaking that inspires technical excellence.

Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
