Iconic Star Wars actors have met up for a team bonding dinner in London before filming for the next movie gets underway. The next instalment in the sci-fi series will be directed by Star Trek filmmaker J. J. Abrams, who organised a cast dinner at 34 restaurant in Mayfair.
The casting for Stars Wars VII has been kept tightly under wraps but reports suggest Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will reprise their roles from the original series. All three have been spotted in London this past weekend (26-27Apr14) and both Ford and Fisher were present at the cast dinner, alongside Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca.
They were also joined by new cast members – Girls star Adam Driver and British actor Andy Serkis. A source tells Britain’s The Sun, “The cast are being flown out to various locations to film. Bosses want to capitalise on them all being in London by booking in a get-together. It was a top secret mission, nobody was allowed to let on they’d be meeting up.”
