Star Wars Episode VII To Begin Filming This Summer In UK With Battle Scenes?

Body

5273 J.J. Abrams has just been named the director on the new Star Wars Episode VII movie and already we have a possible shooting location.

The Daily Mail is told from a source that battle scenes are thought to be filmed for Abrams' Star Wars at a quarry in the UK in Kent this Summer, which is next to where the BBC filmed episodes of Doctor Who.

Apparently the location is suitable for shooting alien planets and such, as that's what was used for Doctor Who.

Disney has set a 2015 release date for Star Wars, but a recent report indicates that J.J. Abrams might not stick with that date.

There's another possibility for the quarry location and it could be for Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, as director James Gunn is set to begin filming in London this Summer, which has an August 1, 2014 release date of its own.

By all indications the Guardians of the Galaxy will be set somewhat in space, but just how much remains to be seen.

Regarding Star Wars, it's rumored that there will be a female Jedi lead - possibly Luke Skywalker's daughter - with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford returning to pass the reins to a new generation.
