Good news everyone! The next installment of the Star Wars series (VII) has just started filming, according to a tweet posted on J. J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot Twitter account. After the not so great prequel trilogy, hopefully this will bring the series back to its roots and answer some important questions, like “Did Chewbacca ever get his medal? Because I feel like he got left out …” and “Why are there only like three women in the Star Wars universe?” Or perhaps the most important question, Jar Jar Binks is dead, right? Because if you wrote a scene where Jar Jar gets thrown into the Sarlacc pit, you would make SO much money.
