Star Wars 7 News Coming as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill Are Spotted in London
http://movieweb.com/is-a-big-star-wars-7-announcement-coming-may-4th/Over the weekend, we teased that a huge Star Wars: Episode VII announcement would arrive May 4th, which is globally known as Star Wars Day. We now have more proof that something big is about to break as original cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford have all been spotted in London. And it seems they are going out of their way to make their presence known.
Disney CEO Alan Horn is rumored to be in London this week, meeting with director J.J. Abrams to finalize the screenplay. The biggest tease comes from comedian Peter Serafinowicz, who actually voiced Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. He sent out this tweet, which features Mark Hamill in fine shape, sporting a very Obi Wan Kenobi-esque beard.
Next comes a tweet from London photographer Matthew Bell, which finds Harrison Ford chatting with the pilots of London's Air Ambulance in Grosvenor Square after his arrival in the U.K.

And lastly, Princess Leia herself teased her arrival in the country via her own twitter account.
So my do dog Gary has been spotted in London, but apparently without me. Who has he been seeing? Let me know if you have any clues.— Carrie Fisher (@carrieffisher) April 26, 2014
Does this indicate that the three original stars are confirmed for the movie? Or are they just messing with fans? We won't know for sure until May 4th. But even at that, we don't know what, if anything, is actually being announced on that date. LucasFilm and Disney are rumored to be dropping a cast list only. And that may only include these three actors and no one else. The title is rumored to be held until Comic-Con in mid-July. And it isn't know if we'll even get a tease of the plot.
