If JJ Abrams' Star Wars Episode V was shrouded in mystery right up until its premiere, the next installment of the rebooted franchise will supposedly take a more laid-back approach, at least according to one of the series' big names.

"It's still very lovely and warm and friendly, just like [Episode] VII was. I think Rian actually wants to be a bit cheekier with the little tidbits of information that come out...

...You can see, even with the way Mark and Carrie posted pictures with their chairs, it's a little bit freer."

This is in relation to tweets sent out by originals stars Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, the former of whom looks set to play a much larger role in the coming film.

There has already been a production video released without any major announcement, showing a glimpse of what looks like an opening scene and a round of applause for the cast and crew.

The next film isn't set to be released until December 2017, which means we have about 21 months of speculation and rumour to look forward to and, in our case, indulging.

Hopefully this time around the wait won't be quite so painfully secretive.
