Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn was being interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter at the Loyola Marymount University School of Film when he revealed that Star Wars Episode VII has already begun filming. He also stated that casting was incomplete, but the leads are all in place. Of course, those names have yet to be announced.
There have been some issues with the screenplay, which went through a re-write at one point after Lawrence Kasdan and J.J. Abrams took over the screenwriting duties from Michael Arndt. However, the script is complete and it looks like things are starting to move ahead. You can almost hear the happy sighs of Star Wars fans all around the world… 😉
