Lucasfilm has announced that the next "Star Wars" movie, like the previous six, will be filmed in the U.K. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy added a brief story hint in the following official 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 U.K. for production and utilizing the incredible talent there can be a part of that.

Speaking from my own longstanding connection to the U.K. with films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Empire of the Sun and recently War Horse, it's very exciting to be heading back."
