The long-awaited film was expected to be released late in 2015, but now an official date has been announced. Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios said;
“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.”
The JJ Abrams-directed feature will begin filming in Spring 2014 at Pinewood Studios in the UK.
