Well, my good Geeks, today is a good day. We are one step closer to new Star Wars movies with the official announcement of a release date. Disney released today that the as-yet untitled Star Wars Episode VII will be released on December 18,2015. A departure from the normal early-summer releases of all previous Star Wars films. But 2015 is already Summer blockbuster laden with the next Avengers installment coming out in May.
On the heels of a screenwriter change and NOT ONE casting announcement, having a release date tells me one thing: they are clearly going to use the Force to make this happen. Like the kid who has three months to write a term paper and does it all the night before…oh, wait…we already saw that film, didn’t we.
Anyway – this is great news. I can’t wait for casting news and holy crap…the title. We have two more years of geeking out until it becomes a reality and we all get to share in the glory of seeing those majestic scrolling yellow letters flow across the screen.
