Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy says the company has reached a deal with British Treasury chief George Osborne to make “Star Wars: Episode VII” in the UK.
She said at the weekend that the production company was “revisiting the origins of ‘Star Wars’” for the new movie. Parts of all six previous movies were made in Britain.
Osborne said the announcement was “great news for fans and our creative industries.”
“Star Wars” maker Lucasfilm was bought last year for $ 4.05 billion by Walt Disney, which has announced plans for a new trilogy of films.
The first new movie, directed by sci-fi wunderkind J.J. Abrams (“Star Trek”), is due for release in 2015.
