LONDON, 7 November. /TASS/. The next film in the epic series will be called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. According to the British media, the film was previously known by the name «Star Wars. Episode VII».
The action takes place 30 years after the events occurring in the film «Star Wars. Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi». So, The Force Awakens will be the 7th episode of the Star Wars.
Famous actors playing the main roles in the previous parts of the saga have taken part in the shooting — Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia Organa).
