The force appears to be with J.J. Abrams for the new "Star Wars Episode 7," as actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, the feature film's original stars, have been spotted in London the past week.

While Abrams and Lucasfilm have remained mostly silent about casting as filming begins at London's Pinewood Studios for the much anticipated extension of the "Star Wars" franchise, Entertainment Weekly speculated about the actors being reunited.

Rexfeatures.com posted photos of Ford, who played Hans Solo in the three original "Star Wars" movies, at London's Hakkasan restaurant late last week.

Another photo of Ford was posted on Twitter talking to London air ambulance personnel.

On Friday, Jedi News reported that Fisher, known in the series as Princess Leia, was spotted in London with her dog.

Fisher added to the hype by tweeting about her pet. 

Hamill, who has been the most coy about whether he will appear in the new "Star Wars" film, was exposed in a tweet Sunday by Peter Serafinowicz, who was the voice of Darth Maul in Episode I's "The Phantom Menace."

"This caused a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly tweeted out in unison — but this time it's Lucasfilm that has gone silent," Entertainment Weekly reported.

Producers have remained silent about casting.

The release of "Episode 7" is set for December 2015. The new installment is rumored to take place 35 years after the events of "Return of the Jedi" in 1983.
