Filming Has Begun on Star Wars: Episode VII

Despite the fact that the full roster of on-screen talent has yet to be finalized, Disney Chairman Alan Horn has claimed that shooting has already begun on the first part in the latest Star Wars trilogy, set to be directed by J.J. Abrams.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Horn let the cat out of the bag in terms of the shooting schedule, saying:

We’re actually shooting some of it now. … We have a lot of [the cast in place]. We’re just not completely done yet. [It picks up] where 6 left off — and where 6 left off is 35 years ago by the time this is released.

That's pretty unexpected, and incredibly interesting news. Despite the media not being aware of some of the key on-screen talent in the flick, it looks as though Abrams and Disney knows more then enough to warrant shooting already, and that's definitely not a bad thing, especially if the movie is to roll into theatres next year as expected.
