J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars Episode VII' Shooting in IMAX

There it is folks! For months now the reports have gone back and forth on whether J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII would be shooting natively with IMAX cameras. In a single tweet, Abrams has confirmed that it indeed is being shot with those most excellent of cameras.

Abrams is no stranger to the film-based IMAX format, with sections of Star Trek Into Darkness having been shot that way. Much like that project, Star Wars Episode VII will also be post-converted to 3D for its regular theatrical and IMAX presentations. UPDATE: IMAX officials have said that they cannot in fact confirm how many cameras are being used on the film, or what other films are shooting in the format.

As anyone who’s witnessed other natively shot IMAX films like The Dark Knight, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, or The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in an IMAX theatre, the experience really is something to behold. As Abrams puts it, “#bestformatever.”

Also, if you’re a fan of the IMAX experience, look out for another piece next week about our tour of the IMAX tech facility in Toronto where we got to see some of very impressive new technology the company is working on for the near future.

In the meantime, if you weren’t already excited enough about Star Wars Episode VII, you’ve got even more reason now.
