star warsIt has been officially announced that the next Star Wars Movie, episode VII will open in theaters on Christmas of 2015!!!

The movie will officially open on December 18th, 2015.  This will be the first Star Wars movie under Disney ownership and will be directed by J.J. Abrams.

Disney Chairman Alan Horn had this to say in a released statement:

Filming on Episode VII will begin in the Spring of 2014 at Pinewood Studios outside London.-DocFB

  1. I was really hoping for a May release as was originally planned, but December isn’t that bad.  I guess the delay is because Michael Arndt (who wrote Toy Story 3 and also the first draft of the Episode VII script) was fired, and Abrams is now rewriting the script along with Lawrence Kasdan.  
    Star Wars junkies like me know that Kasdan wrote most of the dialogue for “The Empire Strikes Back,” which is widely seen as the best film in the franchise.  Disney has A LOT riding on Episode VII, so I hope Abrams and co. use the extra time to make it the best it can be.  I can’t wait to see it!
