STAR WARS is returning to it’s roots… with production returning to the UK. While all of the previous six “episodic” films all had production activites take place in the UK at one time, the original trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) had a major connection there. The kid in me (who as an adult, sits under the shadow of an AT-AT in his office) is pretty excited.

“We’ve devoted serious time and attention to revisiting the origins of Star Wars as inspiration for our process on the new movie, and I’m thrilled that returning to the UK for production and utilizing the incredible talent there can be a part of that. Speaking from my own longstanding connection to the UK with films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire of the Sun and recently War Horse, it’s very exciting to be heading back.”Kathleen Kennedy, President of Lucasfilm

Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne met with Lucasfilm representatives in London earlier this year to establish a production agreement for STAR WARS. The J.J. Abrams-directed film will be shot from a script by Michael Arndt with a 2015 release planned through Walt Disney Pictures.
