Abrams confessed that he’s looking forward to shooting Star Wars 7 in London.

“It’s something that I’ve always intended to do,” he says. “But I’m torn because I have done everything I can to keep the production of my projects in Los Angeles. Yet the opportunity to work with UK crews is something that has always been a dream of mine.

“Of course, that dream existed prior to me being married and having a family, so the reality of making a movie like that for any period of time becomes much more difficult when there are other people that you desperately love and care for involved.”

Additionally Abrams discussed the release date, including R2-D2 and C-3PO with MTV – read it HERE
