Report: 'Star Wars Episode 7' to Make History With Unusual Release Date


The upcoming 'Star Wars' installment, to be directed by J.J. Abrams, is reportedly up for a December 2015 release, instead of May.

With all previous six installments having been filmed in Britain and released in May, many people believe that the upcoming "Star Wars" chapter will continue the tradition. However, according to a report from Badass Digest, this upcoming film might be the first to break the history despite the fact that the production will still take place across the pond.

The site claims that Disney and Lucasfilm will not throw "Star Wars Episode 7" to a crowded summer 2015 slate as they reportedly have "December circled on their calendars," somewhere around the 15th. That means, director J.J. Abrams will be given more time to work on the movie.

With the film's legacy on the line, it is understandable if the two studios do not want to rush the production. However, until there is official word from either Abrams or Disney, it's safe to assume that the seventh "Star Wars" flick might still follow in the footsteps of its predecessors.

The highly-anticipated film might see the return of some original cast members, including Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. David Prowse, who played Darth Vader in the original trilogy, admits he wants to take part in it.

"Unfortunately Darth Vader was killed off," Prowse says to Hull Daily Mail. "But it would be nice to come back and do another character, because no one's ever seen my face. I was never unmasked."

    This can't be good, because shitty movies are usually released during the winter holidays. But then again, lots of people go to theatres during the holidays so Disney could just be trying to increase profit.
