Filming for "Star Wars: Episode VII" is wrapping up in November, according to executive producer Kathleen Kennedy, which leads us to one question: when will see the first footage from the film?

Technically, we got a glimpse of the Millennium Falcon, during one of J.J. Abrams and "Batman v Superman" director Zack Snyder's back-and-forths on Twitter. We don't really think that counts, though — we want a teaser trailer at the very least.

Unfortunately, a movie like "Episode VII" is going to require a lot of post-filming special effects and editing, which means we probably won't see a proper trailer for months. If we're lucky, Abrams will take pity on the legions of anxious "Star Wars" fans and release something small toward the beginning of 2015.

Despite filming for the movie coming to a close, rumors continue to abound — including that Benedict Cumberbatch will indeed appear after all. On a recent episode of "The Graham Norton Show", the actor, who's worked with Abrams in the past, revealed that he did visit the set.

"It was incredible," he said, before seemingly realizing what he said. "I probably shouldn't be saying these things."

Of course, he might have simply worried about the renewed speculation his comments would spark. He said at San Diego Comic-Con that while he "would've liked a part," it just wasn't meant to be.

Then again, maybe he has a cameo like the one Simon Pegg's rumored for. If that's the case, we might not even realize it if we see the two in the film.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" hits theaters December 18, 2015. Read the film's latest news HERE.
