Disney and Lucasfilm have confirmed that the latest installment of the Star Wars saga will begin principal photography in May at London’s Pinewood Studios. Additionally, the studio has revealed that Episode VII will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi, which is actually pretty on-point given that Jedi was released 31 years ago.
As Star Wars geeks brace for excitement (and the omnipresent threat of extreme disappointment), I’m curious as to how social media will play into the production. Will the @StarWars Twitter account give us some reasonable access behind-the-scenes from the set, or will we remain mostly in the dark as was the case with the prequels?
Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters Dec. 18, 2015.
