The new installment, which just wrapped shooting, is directed by J.J. Abrams who recently revived the Star Trek Franchise. Bringing him in was a brilliant move by Disney, which now owns the Star Wars universe, after many felt that George Lucas dropped the ball on his three prequels. The Star Wars creator personally wrote and directed all three of those films which, while hugely successful at the box office, are not fondly remembered.
The movie brings back the stars of the original series, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill. The entire cast reportedly got together for a party on November 1st at London’s Science Museum to celebrate completion of principal photography.
