Star Wars Episode VII: Original Cast Film In London

By: Lacy Langley - April 28, 2014

Star Wars: Episode VII fever is amping up as casting rumors continue to fly. Now, there seems to be some legitimacy to the story that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill will return to reprise their roles as Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker. All three have been spotted in, or admit to being in, London which is the location for filming of J.J. Abrams’ new Star Wars masterpiece.

Add that to the fact that the trio have been pretty open about their involvement, and you’ve got yourself pretty close to fact. Harrison Ford was spotted in a few days ago outside a popular restaurant in London and then was seen again on Saturday talking to some crew members from London Air Ambulance.

Carrie Fisher has just plain openly said that she’ll be there for six months for filming, and Mark Hamill has also been spotted.

Casting has not yet been announced, but speculating spectators are thinking that a May the Fourth announcement would be possible and quite appropriate. It was previously thought that the original trio would simply pop in and out as fun cameos, but the fact that Fisher outlined six months of filming indicates that the role will be a little more impressive than that.

Back in March, her Legit co-star Jim Jeffries made a revealing (albeit barely coherent) statement on the Opie & Andy show on his feelings about how the new plot will play out.

“She’s a funny lady, man,” he said of his co-star and friend. “She’ll be smoking cigarettes outside and as soon as she gets inside, she’s straight on to the vapor. She’s had some f**king hard partying in her life, I tell ya… She said to me, she goes ‘I’m going off to London for six months to film the new Star Wars movie,’ right? And I don’t think from looking at it, the new ‘Star Wars’ movie is a direct continuation. It’s number 7 but it’s not going to be the next day, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe she had the same problem the Emperor had, I don’t know.”

Since that was clear as mud, I suppose we shall all have to wait to find out how this thing will go!

    I just hope they won’t be taken back in time to alter the reality. That was already done in Star Trek.

    • Steven Paul

      They will move forward in time only to be caught in a time warp and than take WAY back, than back to the present day of the film. Make sense?

    If they pick up right where the story left off in RotJ, then something is wrong. The “Big 3″ will not look the age they are supposed to look and I am going to be quite interested in how the remains of the Empire are dealt with. In the books (I know for this trilogy it has already been stated that the EU will not be used) there are parts of the Empire that had no clue about what happened in the original trilogy. Still others refused to believe what they knew and then the vast majority still believed the Empire to be sovereign even without the Emperor and Vader. Still. Very excited for this.

  • Mary Jane Kelliher

    I love the idea of giving the old crew a proper send off. My seven year old is a star wars addict. (what have I created!!) and can not wait for December 2015!

  • Turkey Lurkey

    I hope that they leave out the Ewoks and that phuquing Jar Jar Binks.Talk about lame.

    J.J. Abrams found Jesus and quit making movies. Uwe Boll has to direct it now.
