Rumor: Principal Photography on Episode VII to Take Place from May to September

By: Dominic Jones

New rumors suggest that the principal photography on Star Wars Episode VII is slated to run from mid-May until August of this year.  Hitfix is reporting that,

"Multiple sources now have confirmed for us that "Star Wars Episode VII" is set to start shooting mid-May and will run through September of this year, and most principal casting on the film is complete, with many announcements still to come."

This slightly contradicts a similar rumor from former Roger Ebert correspondent Ali Arikan which said that filming would only take place from mid-May to early August.  This one makes a little more sense to me, since a longer period of time seems to be necessary to make the kind of film Episode VII will be.  The two rumors do line up, more or less, when it comes to casting.  Both state that the film is mostly cast, while Arikan specifies that there are still two leads left to be cast (although one or both of those roles could have been cast in the time between the rumors. 

As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
