LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- What are actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher doing in London?


The three Star Wars actors have all been spotted there in recent days, according to a report from
Entertainment Weekly
.


The news comes just as director J.J. Abrams is about to begin shooting the latest feature-film installment of the blockbuster Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. Abrams is expected to shoot in London.


Hamill, Ford and Fisher were staples of the original Star Wars trilogy that was released during the late 70s and early 80s, and played characters Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, respectively. Many believe the sightings in London confirm the popular characters will feature prominently in Abrams' new trilogy, but Lucasfilm, the motion picture company behind the new trilogy, is mum, according to
Entertainment Weekly
.


"Lucasfilm that has gone silent," the online magazine states. "No casting news has been confirmed, even though principal photography is imminent. Fisher, Ford, and Hamill have all dropped hints, both publicly and privately, that they are planning to return, however."
