Star Wars Episode VII 'For December 2015 Release'
Movie studio reportedly breaking with traditional May release dates...
Star Wars Episode VII is set to be released in cinemas in December 2015, it has been reported.
The long-awaited sci-fi sequel - directed by JJ Abrams - is set to go into production at Pinewood Studios in the UK early next year - and it is claimed that Disney/Lucasfilm are planning to break with the tradition of releasing Star Wars movies in May.
The films are usually released as close to 4 May as possible - as a tribute to the most famous quote from the sci-fi saga: "May the force be with you."
But Badass Digest reports that several sources have claimed that the middle of December is being targeted - with an eye on the Christmas audience.
The summer of 2015 already has The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Superman vs Batman and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 scheduled for release.
JJ Abrams and Michael Arndt are still working on the script for the sequel at the moment, but it has been confirmed that John Williams will be providing the score once again.
