    Mav Edit: I'm going to put a little of the information here in the post. For future reference, threads that start with just a link are often locked first and questions asked later as they look like spam. I only knew because I just saw this somewhere else.

    "Lucasfilm announced today that production of Star Wars: Episode VII will take place in the United Kingdom. All of the six previous live-action Star Wars movies have included UK production in such famed studios as Elstree, Shepperton, Leavesden, Ealing and Pinewood Studios."

    I can't say I'm surprised, but I do think this was a wise choice.

    All of the OT. The PT did some there as well, though they did more in Australia.

    Nope - and all the greats, Cushing, Guinness, and Lee were just like John Wayne doing a passable English accent...

    "Earlier this year, representatives from Lucasfilm met with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, in London to establish an agreement to produce Star Wars in the U.K."

    Why am I picturing this so-called "Chancellor of the Exchequer" to be walking the bridge of a Star Destroyer? :p
