Shooting on Star Wars: Episode VII begins in May. The script, written by J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, is now ready, and pre-production is in full-swing. “We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep. Full steam ahead, y’know.”
They are taking to many actors to flesh out the cast of the film. While no official announcements have been made, Carrie Fisher has all but confirmed that she’ll be prepping to film in March or April, alongside Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford.
“I’d like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again — but with white hair,” she says. “I think that would be funny.”
As the movie gets closer to production, the idea of a new Star Wars is actually beginning to sink in. Though I don’t think it’ll feel real to me until the first teaser is released for it.
