When Star Wars: Episode VII was first announced last October, Walt Disney Pictures revealed they will release this highly-anticipated sequel in 2015. Since every Star Wars movie to date has been released in May, many assumed a May 2015 release would happen, but that may not be the case. Insiders are claiming that Disney is eyeing a mid-December release, possibly December 15, 2015, for Star Wars: Episode VII.
While the move would certainly break a longstanding tradition, it may be a wise choice given how populated the summer of 2015 already is, with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Man of Steel 2, Terminator 5, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and many more slated for release that summer.
