Is J.J. Abrams shooting 'Star Wars' in IMAX?
"Star Wars" is about to be bigger than ever.
The space saga is returning to big screen in 2015 with "Episode VII," and it appears that director J.J. Abrams plans to shoot at least part of the film in the huge IMAX format. It was recently revealed that the film -- the first in a trilogy -- will be shot on film.
IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond discussed the company's upcoming plans at a Goldman Sachs conference, where he made a quick reference to a galaxy far, far away.
In the difficult-to-read transcription of the speech (which can be read here), he noted, "We are talking to J.J. Abrams, who's doing [a] test now, about the next 'Star Wars' being used with partly IMAX cameras."

No release date has yet been set, but "Episode VII" will likely be in theaters sometime in 2015.
