LucasFilm announced on Friday that "Star Wars: Episode VII" will be filmed in the UK, bringing the franchise back to where the bulk of its first four movies were produced.

According to The Wrap, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement, "We've devoted serious time and attention to revisiting the origins of 'Star Wars' as inspiration for our process on the new movie, and I'm thrilled that returning to the UK for production and utilizing the incredible talent there can be a part of that."


Taking "Star Wars" back to the UK does feel like a homecoming. Most of the original trilogy -- "A New Hope" (1977), "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Return of the Jedi" (1983) -- was shot at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, while 1999's "The Phantom Menace" moved to nearby Leavesden, where much of the "Harry Potter" series was also shot. Kennedy did not indicate whether a studio had been selected for the new movie.


The last two "Star Wars" entries to date, "Attack of the Clones" (2002) and "Revenge of the Sith" (2005), were filmed at the Fox Studios facility in Australia.


Production on "Episode VII" is reportedly set to begin in early 2014, with J.J. Abrams directing from a script by Michael Arndt. Plot and casting details are all unknown at this point, although original stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) have all been approached to appear in the film.


"Star Wars: Episode VII" will be out in theaters in summer 2015.
