J.J. Abrams and a friend welcome you to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates which is where all the scenes set on the planet Tattooine are being filmed.  Well, the building where the evil Jabba the Hut was living and working from bore a striking similarity to an actual Islamic mosque, so it's no surprise that the planet Tattooine has always been a metaphor for Middle Eastern politics.  Anyway, Star Wars Episode VII is filming right now and will be seen in movie theaters world wide in the Summer 2015.
J.J. Abrams gave up the chance to direct the next Star Trek film to make all three films in the third Star Wars trilogy.
