The epic ‘Star Wars’ trio has been spotted in London, where ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ is set to start filming. Are Luke, Leia and Han going to be reunited on the big screen?
Hold on to your lightsabers, Stars Wars fans! The iconic stars of the classic trilogy — Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill — have been seen in the London area where Star Wars: Episode VII is gearing up to begin filming.
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher & Mark Hamill Return For ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’
Looks like Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker may be ready for another round of intergalactic adventure! The trio of actors from the original trilogy have all surfaced in London as J.J. Abrams starts to film the franchise reboot.
Mark was spotted with Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace actor Peter Serafinowicz on April 27 in London. Peter cryptically tweeted, “Met up with @HamillHimself in London today. I wonder why he’s here.”
Carrie further intensified the return rumors when she was seen grabbing dinner in London on April 29, according to the Daily Mail. Harrison was then seen talking with London’s Air Ambulance on April 26. George Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars universe, even revealed negotiations with the stars back in March 2013 and a source told HollywoodLife.com back in October that Harrison would “without a doubt” be returning as Han Solo.
It’s only a matter of time before the cast list is released, and the stars are definitely making it seem like they are reprising their old roles!
Sadly, no sightings of Yoda or Chewbacca as of yet.
The Return Of ‘Star Wars’
The new film is set to be released on Dec. 18, 2015 and will be set 30 years after 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
Filming will take place at London’s Pinewood Studios in May, according to the official Star Wars website. The site also revealed that principal photography of the first day of filming is a tradition for the Star Wars films, so it looks like we’ll get confirmation of Harrison, Carrie and Mark’s possible return sooner rather than later!
