Back in January, we at Omega Underground had heard that filming on Star Wars: Episode IX would being in April. This would be during post-production on Episode VIII and during filming of the young Han Solo movie.

This forced Disney and Lucasfilm to push back the filming start date on the sequel; while they try to rewrite her character appropriately. Given General Leia was expected to have a much larger role in the film.
Now Movie Casting Call has learned that filming will now begin this July in the United Kingdom. With a casting call for extras and speaking roles also has gone out:
