Get ready to get excited Star Wars fans! Details were revealed yesterday via Twitter that the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII will begin filming in May.

The tweet reads: “#StarWarsVII begins filming in May! Set 30 years after RoTJ (Return of the Jedi), the film will feature new stars & familiar faces.”

Reports suggest Carrie Fisher will be back as Princess Leia, but it’s still unclear if her Star Wars co-stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill will join her for director J.J. Abrams’ sci-fi blockbuster.

Meanwhile, Variety has confirmed that Girls star Adam Driver has been cast as the lead villain in the new Star Wars movie.

Jesse Plemons, John Boyega, Ed Speleers and Matthews James Thomas have been linked to lead roles in the project and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, Saoirse Ronan and Michael B. Jordan have all met with Abrams to discuss parts.
