With production on Star Wars: Episode VII unofficially underway, original trilogy stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher have been spotted in London.

While the secrecy surrounding the project is bordering on the absurd, we do know that Disney chairman Alan Horn visited director JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm producer Kathleen Kennedy in London to sign off on the final draft of the script.

Now Darth Maul himself, Peter Serafinowicz, sensationally tweeted a picture of himself with Hamill who is reputedly reprising his role as Luke Slywalker. Of course Disney still haven’t confirmed this.

Also, Harrison Ford , aka Han Solo, had been spotted more than once in London in the last few days and here he is (via Star Wars 7 News) with the city’s Air Ambulance crew.

Both Hamill and Ford were looking well, with the former – who has forged a successful career as a voice actor – reportedly undergoing a crash diet and exercise regime ahead of his big screen return.

Also Jedi News has reported that Princess Leia actress Carrie Fisher attended a London restaurant with her dog. Interestingly, the outspoken star joked about the story via her Twitter account.

She tweeted: “So my dog Gary has been spotted in London, but apparently without me. Who has he been seeing? Let me know if you have any clues.”

While Disney and Abrams have given almost nothing away – aside from R2D2’s involvement – the studio will now make a big announcement during Star Wars Day on May 4th, or possibly at Comic-Con in July.

This will almost certainly be the unveiling of the official title of the seventh film, as well as the full cast list.

Star Wars: Episode VII, which is a direct sequel to Return of the Jedi (1983), will be released in December 2015.
