In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway on April 2, Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn revealed that "Star Wars: Episode VII" has already begun shooting. When asked what was the most difficult part of supervising the movie, Horn responded "casting," but quickly confirmed a little later that the casting process is nearly complete. Naturally, when asked if he could disclose any names or details, he simply replied "no."

Horn also discussed the difficulty of putting together the script. "It's all about the screenplay. Screenplay, screenplay, screenplay," Horn said. Discussing how it will be 35 years since "Return of the Jedi" debuted once the new film hits theaters, Horn said that the screenplay was co-written by Lawrence Kasdan and J.J. Abrams, following an early draft by Michael Arndt.

Horn closed out this segment by stating in a Yoda voice what should be the motto of the film's sluggish rollout: "Patience, you must have." Watch the chat below.
