Disney has revealed some new details about Star Wars: Episode VII, including when it's set and when it starts shooting...

Some substantive Star Wars news has just come to light, courtesy of Disney's latest shareholder meeting. At said meeting, Disney boss Bob Iger revealed that JJ Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII would feature "some very familiar faces with a trio of new leads". That all but confirms the likes of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. Not that their involvement is a particularly well-kept secret.

Furthermore, Iger also revealed that JJ Abrams' new film would be set 30 years after the events of Return Of The Jedi. On top of that, production will officially start on the new film in May - May 4th wouldn't be a bad date.

There are no further firm details yet, but that major casting announcement can't be far off now...
