Star Wars: Episode 7 Starts Filming Today! Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher to be in Abu Dhabi for Duration?

episode 7

That’s right folks after 10 years of expectations finally a new Star Wars movie is in the works. As we posted a few days ago according to The National filming is expected to start today in Abu Dhabi. Still it was only a rumor. Now there’s another interesting post on Twitter that suggests that this is indeed the case…

This next tweet comes from the Senior Channel Manager of the broadcast media MBC Group in the United Arab Emirates and owner of Brown Hats Productions Lina Matta.

Star Wars starts shooting in Abu Dhabi today! Rumor has it Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher will be here for duration

And while this all sounds very interesting until an official word is spread from Lucasfilm this is just a rumor. Nevertheless there are exciting times upon us.  

We at starwars7news wish a fruitful filming process to the whole Episode 7 cast and crew. No sandstorms, no incidents and bearable air temperatures. Good luck!

    Do you think we’ll get any more updates today Viral?

      Personally I think Lucasfilm and Abrams will release an image with an Episode 7 clapperboard or something. But will it be today, I don’t know. The start of filming is still just a rumor. Other peoples have heard that actually filming starts tomorrow in the Pinewood Studios. So it’s a complicate situation. If there’s anything I’ll update the article.

      I’m still wondering about the mystery box…. was it ever opened?

    • May 13, 2014 at 10:25 pm

      It has seen the end of Kenobi, and will soon see the … No, sorrry. I just got carried away.

    It would seem Han & Leia have gone looking for one of their kids on Tattoine…
    And without Hamill on the plane it would seem that Luke has set up his Academy elsewhere. Watch out for reports of MH flying to Scotland to get that bleak planet look

      Apparently the filming in Scotland won’t be happening until July…

    Just give me grand master luke skywalker swinging his lightsaber one last time

  • May 13, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    I wonder if Luke will still have his Green Saber after all this time? I also look forward to seeing the new modified X-wing’s if there even will be X-wings. So weird and AWESOME!!!

    • May 13, 2014 at 9:18 pm

      yeah good point about the star fighters. I wonder if they will be something new to the SW movies like E-wings, Z-wings, or highly modified (throwback) X-wings. Good stuff!

    ok did anyone else see the title of this post and the pic and have a gasp moment? i quickly read the “episode 7 starts filming today” and saw the pic and assumed it was a still from the production… with vader in it and thought oh wow that’s a quick end ot the will vader be back debate….. and no i’m not trying to start that whole thing up again. i think he should be dead and gone but i just saw the pic and jumped to conclusions… thanks viral for all the info…

    One wonders if they will have a new villain pick up the Vader persona (with a purely “cosmetic” suit as opposed to a wearable iron lung). One could imagine some twisted person ADMIRING Vader and perhaps scolding Luke: “You should have been the one to carry on your father’s legacy, but since you are too weak …” (slips on mask and voice changes to that of James Earl Jones): “… I WILL DO IT FOR YOU!”

    Compare the “Ghostface” murderer of the Scream movies, which is a persona picked up by a new psycho killer in each movie, yet in a way remains the “same” character. So perhaps “Darth Vader” can likewise be an identity assumed by a new villain? Luke would of course try to tell the Vader wannabe that he is not honoring Anakin Skywalker’s memory, but MOCKING it — the suit was Anakin’s prison for a quarter of a century, not something he wanted to wear.

      Sounds like a desperate attempt to “bring back Vader” to the big screen. Darth Maul proved that a new villain has great potential to stand up on his or her own. We need to move on to something new.

    Sounds like something Supershadow would say. Stay away from that guy. He’s full of shit.

    • May 14, 2014 at 5:28 am

      Yes I agree Supershadow is full of shit and has been for over a decade, Im amazed with his connections to Lucas etc (snigger). I surprised he,s not mentioned more. Maybe it is because he is a D.H.

    Expect drone footage tomorrow.
