British Godzilla director Gareth Edwards will helm the film which is set to open in December 2016. Chancellor George Osborne announced the news on Twitter by writing:
“On set of Episode VII tonight, can announce another #StarWars film will be made in UK. A #LongTermEconomicPlan in a galaxy far far away.”
He also tweeted the above image with J.J Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and R2D2.
Looks like Star Wars is staying in the UK.
