This isn’t the biggest piece of news, as we all expected it was going to happen, but, as they announced that they would earlier this month, Star Wars: Episode VII has officially resumed filming. Again, this isn’t a particularly stunning reveal, since, especially after the delay, they’re on an even more limited time table if they’re going to make the scheduled December 18, 2015 release, but for those of us who are excited about this movie (though we are, admittedly, wary as well), this isn’t the worst news we’ve ever heard.
EW reports that the cameras have actually started rolling once again at the legendary Pinewood Studios in London. Production was forced to take a hiatus after star Harrison Ford, who you might remember played a little guy named Han Solo, broke his leg in an on-set accident and required surgery. After getting creative, shifting things around, and even spending a few days shooting on the picturesque island of Skellig Michael off the coast of Ireland, there was nothing else that they could do for the time being, and called a break.
