Star Wars: Episode VII has finished filming!

Congratulations to JJ Abrams and the Star Wars: Episode VII cast; the film has officially finished filming after about 6 months. This was confirmed by a note JJ Abrams posted on twitter, thanking the cast crew for their hard work.

The note reads:
To the Extraordinary Cast and Crew of Episode VII: It is a true honor and absolute joy to come to set every day and work alongside each of you. Your professionalism, passion and patience is more deeply appreciated than we could ever express. From the deserts of Abu Dhabi, to the Forest of Dean, to the stages of Pinewood, you have risen to every challenge and been as wonderfully kind as you are brilliantly talented. Our ambition here is large, of course, and it must be; we are here to make a film that entertains millions of people, of all ages, for generations. To create an experience people will cherish watching as much as we will cherish having made it, together. How lovely it would be if you had, in addition to your name on the screen, some actual, real, tangible proof that you were apart of it! Here, then, is that proof. Wear it well, wear it healthily, wear it proudly. But mostly thank you.

The note does not reveal any specific details about the movie, except that the creators seem to be very confident about the quality of the movie. This doesn't necessarily mean the movie will actually be good; most directors probably think their movies are good, even if they're actually terrible. 

Now that we have exited the period of leaked set images, we'll soon be entering the period of leaked footage. And, according to some sources, we may even get a first teaser trailer by the end of the year.

This seems rather extreme, considering that the movie isn't coming out until almost 2016 (the release date is December 18, 2015). So any teaser that does come out in 2014, will most likely not include any actual characters or plot points. Perhaps the single blade of a lightsaber igniting, and then a well-animated graphic of "Star Wars: Episode VII", possibly followed by the yet-to-be-released sub-title of the film. 

Not only is Episode VII the biggest movie of 2015 (sorry, Age of Ultron), it is arguably the biggest movie of the decade. You simply can't find a more classic film series than Star Wars. If you have some clear allusions to the previous Star Wars films (for example Tatooine, which has been pretty much confirmed to be a major location in the film), and add some refreshingly new content (new villains, new superweapons) you can make a truly incredible film that will please both adult and child fans. 

Are you glad that Episode VII is finished filming? When are you expecting the first trailer? Tell me in the comments, and may the force be with you all. 



  1. Dear the dude who makes the blog,

    I have been following your blog for many a year now. It strikes me as to see how absolutely astounding this blog is - its befuddling clarity, statuesque diction, and appalling content.

    And the content of this blog. Star Wars. What else is there in the universe than the picturesquevity of Star Wars? Nothing. Nothing. From the astonishing beauty of Princess Leia, to the unquestionable wisdom of Yoda, to the unpococurante strength and disimbecile cunning of Luke Skywalker, Star Wars is what gets me up every morning. And this blog is what keeps me going, for what other purpose is there in life than to indulge and savour the obliquity of Star Wars? And what better blog be there, than
