A new report from Latino Review claims that the new JJ Abrams-directed Star Wars film won’t be released in the summer of 2015 as had been originally planned.
Their source is actually giving them two schedule tidbits related to the latest chapter in the George Lucas saga.
The thinking now is that ‘Foodles‘ (Star Wars: Episode VII‘s code name) is heading for a Christmas 2015 release, instead of in the month of May like all of the other Star Wars movies.
The new sequel trilogy will start shooting on January 21st, 2014 at Pinewood Studios in London, England – production will start on a Tuesday because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday falling on Monday.
According to the Badass Digest’s latest rumor, pre-production is a little behind to meet the demands of a summer 2015 release date.
Recent stories also include Ewan McGregor who will reprising his role as Obi Wan Kenobi, and that Ian McDiarmid is returning as a ghost version of Emperor Palpatine.
It was also announced JJ Abrams will shoot the movie on 35mm Kodak film stock 5219 (with cinematographer Dan Mindel), not digitally (like the last two Star Wars movies).
Like any other rumor, take this with a grain of salt until we finally get some official confirmation of what is going on with this movie and who will be in it.
