Disney brass got on the phone with reporters today to talk money, but Bog Iger did also drop this bit of new info on Star Wars: Episode VII, including a timeline for its onscreen characters, as well as offscreen filmmakers.

For the characters, it’s been 30 years since the events of Return of the Jedi. Here’s how Wall Street Journal’s Ben Fritz relayed what Iger said:


As for the production on the film itself, that will begin in May. StarWars.com made the announcement, and I can’t help but feel like this means real official casting news may finally be very, very close as well.

For what it’s worth, Iger told journalists today that the only one cast so far is R2-D2.
