A couple of updates on "Star Wars: Episode VII" today, and as usual it's mostly speculative.

It began with a tweet from Dennis Barbie, Disney’s director of retail in the Netherlands, a tweet that has since been deleted. At the time though it said:

"#StarWars,Saw today some awsome first features/plans of new StarWars 7 movie coming end 2015. #Disney studio role out."

He was then asked outright if he meant that Disney was planning to roll out the new "Star Wars" in December 2015 rather than the Summer 2015 date that was previously being targeted.

His response? "End of CY15 [is the target] but in the entertainment business you will never know."

This would add to reports last week that Disney wants the film out in Summer 2015, while the producers would prefer a Summer 2016 date. Late 2015 would be a comfortable compromise date.

Then there's the Twitter announced UK casting call for a Walt Disney Pictures »
