Woo boy, the release date wars are getting heavy. We.re a year and a half from Star Wars Episode VII returning to cinemas, a December 2015 date landed after much speculation regarding May .15, the month traditionally reserved for the franchise. As J.J. Abrams toils away in pre-production, however, those plans might be shifting once again, particularly if Disney chair Alan Horn decides to get rowdy with it. Speaking to Bloomberg News, Horn illustrates that while December has already been earmarked for the next film, the second and third pictures in this proposed trilogy could return to their traditional May release dates. "No, we're not sure yet. We may revert -- the Star Wars dates have been May -- and we may revert to that at some point. But it depends on the readiness of the screenplays and where we are. But this first one will be December 18th of 2015. »
