Reported by Justin on 19 May 2013 13:54

We get word from an article posted on IGN that costume designer Michael Kaplan has been brought onboard to work in the same capacity on Episode VII.

Talking with Buzzfeed, the famed designer whose credits include Blade Runner, Star Trek (2009), and Fight Club, explained: "I’ve just learned I’ll be working on the new Star Wars movie, again with J.J. Everything just got formalized [last week], I haven’t even had the chance to talk to anyone about it all other than to be told ‘welcome aboard.’ It’s a little too soon to know exactly what’s in store but I’m excited, absolutely, to get to work on another prestigious sci-fi series.”

There's been no official word yet from Disney/Lucasfilm on Kaplan's involvement in the film, so we'll be sure to update you accordingly as we hear more.
