(NEWSER) – Star Wars fanatics now have a timeline for the next episode in the intergalactic space drama.

Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, said yesterday at the company's shareholders' meeting that Episode VII will take place about 30 years after 1983's Return of the Jedi.

"There will be some very familiar faces along with a trio of new young leads," he said.

But so far, only one returning character has been officially confirmed: Iger said R2D2 will definitely be back when the film hits theaters on Dec. 18, 2015.
