Star Wars Episode VII officially coming December 2015.

December 18, 2015.  Star Wars Episode VII is finally coming.  The direct sequels to the original Star Wars trilogy, without a doubt the most hallowed trilogy of movies of my generation, if not of all time.  This will be a day Star Wars fans will have waited for since 1983 when Return of the Jedi came out.  Thirty-two years.  Finally!

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. All Star Wars, all the time.

    • Well, Lucas is not directing or writing these movies so I think they’re going to go easy on the CG this time around. Plus, Mark Hamill specifically requested that some sort of balance be found between CG and real sets. It’s going to be a very, very high bar for these new movies to live up to for sure.

      Thanks for reading and posting umanbn!
