Yesterday cameras officially started rolling on J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. The action began at Pinewood Studios in London, England, and to commemorate the occasion, there are now a couple of pictures from the location. They’re not the most exciting things in the world, but that’s not really the news, the news is that PRODUCTION HAS FINALLY STARTED ON EPISODE VII!
This is the day we’ve been waiting for since October 30, 2012, when it came out that Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas for billions and billions of dollars. That was when they first dropped the bomb that there were more Star Wars films on the way, and since that day, we’ve all been obsessed with every last casting rumor, potential plot detail, or possible location. While that’s been fun, it’s nice to know they were planning to make an actual movie at some point.
