2015 or bust for Star Wars Episode VII


Despite calls from the production team to push the release date of Episode VII into 2016, Disney remains adamant that the film will debut on the big screen in 2015.

Producer Kathleen Kennedy apparently called on Disney bosses to push back the release date as we creep closer to the expected filming start date of spring 2014. It is believed that production falling behind schedule is what prompted the departure of screenwriter Michael Arndt, leaving the task of scripting Episode VII to director JJ Abrams and The Empire Strikes Back co-writer Lawrence Kasdan.

Disney plans to release a new Star Wars movie every year, including the main Star Wars saga and various spin-offs every other year, and it seems that Disney CEO Bob Iger does not plan on letting this grand scheme fall behind.

2015 is already packed full of big movies, with the final installment of Hunger Games, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the Batman and Superman movie, and Disney clearly wants a slice of the action.

Let's hope they can pull it off without having to rush Star Wars Episode VII.
