Return to a galaxy far, far away on Christmas 2015

LucasFilm and its new owners at Disney have confirmed recent speculation that Star Wars Episode VII (still feels weird writing that) will forego the traditional May launch, to be released theatrically on December 18th 2015.

Despite talk of delays and screenwriter Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) being removed from the project, Disney CEO Bob Iger has been adamant that the film would not miss its 2015 release date as announced last year, following LucasFilm being acquired from Star Wars creator George Lucas for the princely sum of $7 billion dollars in cash and Disney stock.

Precious little is known about the plot other than it will be a direct sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi, with a return to original stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford.

 

The as-yet untitled Episode VII is directed by Star Trek reboot director JJ Abrams and produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk., with music by original composer John Williams.
