STAR WARS Spin-Off To Shoot In The UK; New EPISODE VII Set Photo
It has been announced by Lucasfilm, Disney and the British Government that the first standalone Star Wars movie (not one associated with the general story of episodes 1-7) will be shot in the UK.
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.
