Elements of Star Wars: Episode VII to shoot on IMAX

It had already been revealed recently that Star Wars: Episode VII would screen in IMAX cinemas, but we now have an official announcement that parts of the film will also be shot in the large format as well, with the following tweet from @BadRobot making it very clear indeed.

This announcement follows on from a similar trick pulled by director J.J. Abrams for Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), which also boasted a large chunk (50 minutes worth) of IMAX shot footage.

This means that we'll be seeing plenty of film for Star Wars: Episode VII, with the 35mm it has proudly boasted about before now being complemented by 70mm to boot – and for some stunning desert set sequences, from the looks of things.

Starring veterans Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Kenny Baker, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and new saga arrivals John Boyega (Attack The Block), Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years A Slave), Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones) and Max von Sydow (Shutter Island), Star Wars: Episode VII is set to arrive on 18 December 2015.
