In a recent meeting with shareholders, Disney shed some light on the upcoming, seventh "Star Wars" movie. Here's what we now know:
The movie will be set 30 years after "Return of the Jedi" . . . and they will begin filming it in London in May. As we'd heard, it'll hit theaters in December of 2015.
They didn't say anything about the casting rumors that are out there, including the ones claiming ADAM DRIVER from "Girls" will play the main bad guy, and that "12 Years a Slave" star LUPITA NYONG'O is in talks for a role.
They did say that, for now, the only confirmed cast member is R2-D2. StarWars.com reports that the movie will star, quote, "a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces."
It seems likely that HARRISON FORD, CARRIE FISHER and MARK HAMILL will return in some capacity. And that would make sense age-wise, because it's also been just over 30 years since "Return of the Jedi" came out.
In other Disney news, they also announced that Pixar will produce a third "Cars" movie . . . and that they're also developing a sequel to "The Incredibles".
