With pre-production in full-swing, a confirmed release date of December 18, 2015, has been set for Lucasfilm's highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII.
"We're very excited to share the official 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII, where it will not only anchor the popular holiday filmgoing season but also ensure our extraordinary filmmaking team has the time needed to deliver a sensational picture," said Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.
He probably added, as an aside, "So hurry the fuck up with that goddamn script, JJ, or we really will cut your head off and cryogenically freeze it like they say we did to Walt!"
So: do you care that it won't be Memorial Day, for the first time? Or is that a minute concern compared to the many, many others?
