With Star Wars: Episode VII set to begin filming in May, geeks around the world can't wait to hear more news from the production.

The latest Star Wars rumors reveal filming might be taking place in Iceland as soon as this spring.

According to The Week, Iceland will stand in for the planet Hoth which was last seen in Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

Filming is not scheduled to begin at London's historic Pinewood Studios until May but the local press is indicating the Star Wars crew will begin work in Iceland next month.

Hoth is best known to fans as the snowy planet where the famous clash between the rebel alliance and the Galactic Empire took place.
