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.
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.
