Well folks, much to my surprise the latest news for the latest Star Wars movie is more than just a rumor. Finally, Disney is dropping some official knowledge on us and this time it has to do with the Episode VII release date. Previously, they’d been talking about aiming toward summer of 2015, but it looks like the production schedule has been moved back a bit. And the new release date is…
December 18th, 2015.
Yup, Episode VII: Beauty and the Sith (title pending) will be arriving just in time for Christmas. That means less competition from big-budget, summer monsters like Avengers 2 and Batman vs. Superman without sacrificing the healthy pile of money that proper release timing guarantees. Of course, they could put this thing out in the middle of March and still never fail… like there’s anyone that’s NOT going to go see it?
So hold on to your pants Nerd Readers – at least for another 2 years, 1 month and 11 days (as of this writing).
Thanks to Deadline for helping us spread the good news.
