According to Jedi News, Disney have signed a filming location deal with Pinewood Studios which will give them studio space there for the next ten years. We already know that Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Cinderella and Star Wars Episode VII will all shoot at the iconic location, and the studio clearly has plans to return for possible sequels to them and more besides. However, most interesting is the fact that J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie is currently in pre-production under the pseudonym, "Foodles Productions Ltd". This was registered by Disney UK back in March. The site adds, "that the film has been in pre-production at Pinewood Studios for three and a half months in advance of an August 2013 shooting date. We hear they have block booked the studios for 10 years and that construction of offices and facilities on-site is underway. Also storage space is being located in the local area." With Kathleen Kennedy recently promising a return to old school practical effects, it could be these that they are currently working on

Practical effects??  In other words, old style models instead of full CGI ships and all that?

Probably not as such, but for aliens more costumes and makeup less cgi. Which is kind of unfortunate since the cgi on Star Wars is what pushed organic movie cgi. And even jar jar from episode one stands out as excellent fr exceeding the quality of old models.

And amidst the argument of cgi or doll Yoda. You can't argue with the awesomeness of Yoda in a light saber duel which the doll could never do.

Or in simpler turns,Disney is giving us budget Star Wars...

It's a rumour - one that's been relayed to me.  Hence, no source.

I doubt Lucas can actually do anything. Disney wouldn't have bought the rights if they didn't get full control. So unless he's just hangin outside the studio gate shouting things at JJ it seems unlikely :P

What's wrong with Lucas giving his input on the story though?  Maybe he's not that great as a director but he can write scripts just fine.  If you didn't like the prequel trilogy that's one thing but the original was/is great and the Indiana Jones trilogy is also great.  I don't quite get all the hate at this point.

"There?s a lot of gossip swirling around that Lucasfilm are about to make a big casting announcement regarding Star Wars VII, and that casting announcement appears to be none-other than Benedict Cumberbatch, most recently seen in director JJ Abrams? previous movie, ?Star Trek Into Darkness?."

"I've heard the role he's up for is that of a bad guy, almost certainly a Sith. And it's a major role, one that will continue throughout the whole new trilogy. This part is why he dropped out of Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak."

I'd actually really like to see him play the role of a Jedi instead. I think he could play a stable and pure Jedi very well.

A couple days ago, Jeff Lucas, the son of George Lucas, revealed that his father had been working on a new Star Wars trilogy a year before Disney bought Lucasfilm. During that time it is safe to assume that George thought up some working titles for at least one of those three sequels. Now, Latino-Review is claiming that they know two working titles for Star Wars: Episode VII. They are Rise of the Jedi and Return of the Sith.
