"Star Wars VII" Start Date, Pixar Talk

Two updates today regarding J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII" for Disney Pictures.

First up, actress Carrie Fisher tells TV Guide that she, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford will begin shooting their scenes for the film around March or April. She also joked that "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair. I think that would be funny."

Her date comment doesn't match J.J. Abrams' quote earlier this week that filming on the project will begin in May at Pinewood Studios in London.

In more rumor-oriented news, Latino Review reports that Disney and LucasFilm have given a specific Star Wars property to the brain trust at Pixar to turn into a full-length animated feature.

In August last year, Pixar chairman John Lasseter claimed no "Star Wars" Pixar project was happening. Disney, Pixar and LucasFilm have not yet responded to this new report.
