    Original Star Wars Actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford Spotted in London Ahead of Episode VII Filming

    The Force is certainly strong with these sightings.

    It seems not one, not two, but three cast members of the original Star Wars were spotted in London over the weekend.

    Yep. Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford happened to pop up across the pond. You know, just as shooting on Star Wars: Episode VII is set to begin there shortly.

    Coincidence? Mmm, perhaps.

    But it certainly has fans buzzing that the trio is there to reprise their roles as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo respectively nevertheless.

    Credit, though, must be given to Entertainment Weekly, which presented some pretty strong clues that the three thespians are in town to work on director J.J. Abrams highly anticipated flick.

    As the magazine pointed out, Ford was seen on April 24 at London's Hakkasan restaurant, and on Saturday, he was snapped chatting with the pilots of London's air ambulance in Grosvernor Square.

    Then, Fisher tweeted, "So my do dog Gary has been spotted in London, but apparently without me. Who has he been seeing? Let me know if you have any clues."

    Finally, actor Peter Serafinowicz, who lent his voice to Darth Maul in Episode I, posted a picture of himself with Hamill, writing, "Met up with @HamillHimself in London today. I wonder why he's here."

    Very interesting indeed.

    Meanwhile, Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
