Revealed: New Star Wars Episode VII film title...the Force Awakens #starwars #theforceawakens

The title for the long-awaited new Star Wars film has been released - Episode VII The Force Awakens.

It was finally revealed on Twitter on Thursday afternoon, in a tweet from the official Star Wars account.

For the latest instalment, Episode VII, some scenes have been shot at Pinewood studios in Buckinghamshire – although with mixed success following an accident with a door that left the 71-year-old Ford, reprising his role as Han Solo while nursing a broken ankle.

The possibility of Berkshire being the location for some filming was raised in September after a man taking publicity photos for a flying school returned home to find he had captured images of a grounded Millennium Falcon and X-wing fighter.

Details of the plot for the new instalment have yet to been released, but it is set 30 years on from the events of the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI - The Return Of The Jedi.

Original Star Wars actors Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker are back and will be joined by new cast including Adam Driver, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow.
