Star Wars STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Coming December 2015 written by Justin Bolger November 7, 2013 Lucasfilm announced today that STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will be released on December 18, 2015. The change from the traditional STAR WARS release month of May had been rumored for some time. From StarWars.com: “WITH PRE-PRODUCTION IN FULL-SWING, A CONFIRMED RELEASE DATE OF DECEMBER 18, 2015, HAS BEEN SET FOR LUCASFILM’S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. “WE’RE VERY EXCITED TO SHARE THE OFFICIAL 2015 RELEASE DATE FOR STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, WHERE IT WILL NOT ONLY ANCHOR THE POPULAR HOLIDAY FILMGOING SEASON BUT ALSO ENSURE OUR EXTRAORDINARY FILMMAKING TEAM HAS THE TIME NEEDED TO DELIVER A SENSATIONAL PICTURE,” SAID ALAN HORN, CHAIRMAN OF THE WALT DISNEY STUDIOS. STAR WARS: EPISODE VII WILL BE DIRECTED BY J.J. ABRAMS (SUPER 8, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, STAR TREK) AND IS BEING SCRIPTED BY ABRAMS AND LAWRENCE KASDAN (RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, RETURN OF THE JEDI). LUCASFILM PRESIDENT KATHLEEN KENNEDY, J.J. ABRAMS, AND BRYAN BURK ARE PRODUCING, WITH TOMMY HARPER (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL, JACK RYAN, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS) AND JASON MCGATLIN (TINTIN, WAR OF THE WORLDS) SERVING AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS. JOHN WILLIAMS IS RETURNING TO SCORE STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. SHOOTING IS SCHEDULED TO BEGIN SPRING 2014 AT PINEWOOD STUDIOS.” A December release for the STAR WARS sequel should make for a much better “Holiday Special” than the last one, and insure a “Happy Life Day” for all.

Awesome news Michael Lalaian May the 4th no longer be with us 🙁 Robert Reineke Good that they finally have a date. Hopefully they’ll be able to iron out the script which they’ve obviously gone back and forth on. Remember back when it was a done deal that the film would be out in Summer 2015 and Arndt’s work on the script seemed like a mere formality? Obviously, things have been going on behind closed doors. stock Hopefully things like, We are not going to re-do Star Wars again, and George, you sold this to us. This is ours now. Go away.
