This was tweeted from the official Star Wars Twitter page. After all of the rumors, the one about when Star Wars: Episode VII will take place, turns out to actually be true.

With that, also comes the cast. Disney CEO Bob Iger announced at Disney’s shareholders meeting this morning, that “very familiar faces returning, joining a “trio of new leads.” But that’s about all he said.

Bob Iger said that it’s still too early to break major news, but the concept art “looks amazing. For now that’s it. I’ll get in trouble if I say more.”
