Star Wars: Episode 7 To Begin Shooting in 2014

Star Wars: Episode 7 will start shooting in early 2014, Producer and Bad Robot co-founder Bryan Burk, according to a report.

The information that Episode 7 will start shooting as early as 2013 is not that big a surprise due to the fact that Disney has already been looking ahead to a 2015 release for Star Wars: Episode 7. And so it makes sense that the film’s production will start as soon as possible.

"We're progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year, and the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues," Burk tells Collider in an interview.

"As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different."

Recently, Mark Hamill, known for playing the popular role of Luke Skywalker, also revealed a bit about the upcoming movie. He stated: “I’ve only had one creative meeting about the new films, but I do remember saying: ‘We’ve got to find a proper balance between CGI and old-school models.’ I want to have a more organic look so that we don’t get into Roger Rabbit territory.”

Episode 7 takes place 20 years after the end of Return of the Jedi.

On a similar note, it was also reported via Digital Spy that James Cameron's Avatar 2 is set to begin production around the same time as that of Episode 7 in 2014.
