There’s been speculation that producers of Star Wars Episode VII were trying to push back the release date and the rumors were true. The pushed back release date isn’t that bad though. The movie will be released on December 18th 2015 instead of the Summer, which I’m fine with. I’d rather have the movie done right instead of being rushed but the jury will still be out if these Star Wars movies will be good or not. Original screenwriter Michael Arndt left/was fired from the project and JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan took over the writing duties. Who knows what the real reason is but JJ Abrams said it was the advancing schedule.

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.
