Will We Have Star Wars For Xmas?
JJ Abrams's continuation of George Lucas's sci-fi saga, which begins production at London's Pinewood Studios early next year, will allegedly break with Star Wars May release tradition to debut at Christmas
Badass Digest cites "multiple sources" claiming that Disney and Lucasfilm are targeting the middle of December to release the movie.
The move would pull Episode VII out of the crowded summer of 2015, which already has The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Superman vs Batman and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 penciled in for release.
JJ Abrams is currently working on the script for Episode VII with writers Michael Arndt, Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg and producer Kathleen Kennedy.
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are all expected to reprise their roles from the original trilogy, while Ewan McGregor and Ian McDiarmid have been linked with returns to the series.
