Carrie Fisher has again let slip that she will be involved in Star Wars Episode VII and will be filming in London for six months.
Carrie Fisher has never been one to keep quiet, and despite a lack of official confirmation she has again been speaking about her role in Star Wars Episode VII.
/Film reported that the 57 year old actress, who played Princess Leia Organa in the classic Star Wars trilogy, has recently told Jim Jeffries of television show Legit that she will be in London for six months while filming for the latest Star Wars movie.
This, if accurate, seems to suggest that the role of the Big Three may be bigger than originally expected, and links in with talk that the script was rewritten to include more of the original cast before handing over to the new generation.

BioWare has released a video announcement of a new player housing feature for Star Wars: The Old Republic.
BioWare Community Manager Eric Musco teased players with a video showing what appeared to be player housing during a Twitch livestream yesterday. This confirmed what dataminers had recently posted on Reddit, showing that additions to the game code and assets pointed towards this feature being implemented.
Today it was officially confirmed with this announcement trailer, captured from the development livestream:
Player housing is a feature missing from many recent MMOs, and amongst fans who played Star Wars Galaxies especially this has been a much requested feature that is sure to prove popular.
Player-owned structures in Star Wars Galaxies could be placed almost anywhere on a planet, with some player controlled cities becoming busier than areas built by the developers. Houses allowed players to sell merchandise and show off their possessions, as well as provide valuable storage space.
It is currently not clear what kind of system The Old Republic will be using but more details are sure to emerge soon.

According to Jedi News a very reliable source has revealed to them that all six Star Wars movies will be receiving a digital release for the first time in November 2014, as Lucasfilm have now finished digitising the complete saga.
Additionally, the report suggests that even more previously unseen footage has been unearthed and will be also released. There is little information available at the moment though, so hopefully something more concrete is confirmed soon!
Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline
Check out the timeline! It's still under construction!
In the continuity of the Star Wars saga there are eight clearly defined eras into which every story fits, and you can see these listed below.
The earliest stories occur Before the Republic, and tales of the Sith Wars and Jedi Civil War take place during the Republic era. The time of the Star Wars prequels are nestled within the Rise of the Empire era, which comes to an end with the Battle of Yavin and the start of the Rebellion era. After the fall of the Empire comes a New Republic, but the galaxy is changed again when the Yuuzhan Vong invade the galaxy at the start of the New Jedi Order era. The future is unclear, but many tales have already been told in the Legacy era...
The final publishing category is Infinities, which are often alternate universe or other stories considered non-canon. We currently have not included these stories in our timeline.
As new stories are always being added, this is a continuous work in progress, so if you spot a mistake or omission please let us know!
