Multiple sources confirmed to HitFix that the highly anticipated film will film from May through September.

The movie is scheduled for a December 18, 2015 release date.

The story for Episode VII is reportedly going to focus on Fisher, Ford, and Hamill as Princess Leia, Hans Solo, and Luke Skywalker.

Episode VIII and Episode VIIII are then going to focus on the offspring of the trio.
