Episode VII Production Start Date

New Month for Release

By Robert T. Trate     August 26, 2013
Source: Latino Review

We have an official start date for Episode VII and a perhaps even a release month for the film as well. Latino Review is again reporting this news so it may or may not be be “official”.

Producer Bryan Burk told Collider: “We’re progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year,” says Burk, “and the location is still kind of floating around in the air, all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues. As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.”

According to Latino Review: First day of principal photography is January 21st 2014.

Which isn’t that far off so we should get some official casting news relatively soon. 

They are also reporting that Episode VII will have a release date of December 2015. This would break the May tradition release date that every other Star Wars film has had in the past. However, with a January 2014 start date they would be under the gun to get the film in by May 2015. This would also be a benefit to Disney as Avengers: Age of Ultron already has a May release.

Then move Avengers to June or July. It's not that hard, Disney. You can't release a Star Wars movie any time other than May. The Force won't allow it.

 Most likely they dont want their two biggest movies to bump heads, its all about the money.

May the Xmas be with you.

Erm. No it doesn't sound quite the same.

Hang on a minute. JJ isn't just going to rehash the Holiday Special script is he?? The thought is just too horrible to consider.

 Weren't both of JJ's Treks slated for a December release only to both being pushed back to a May/summer release?

@Higgy - I hope that was a joke from @wish... Given people's level of rationality (or lack thereof), it's about 35-40% possible he was completely serious.
