It appears that what we previously heard about and reported on nearly 3 months ago is true, Star Wars Episode VII will release in December of 2015.

To be exact, Disney confirmed today that the official release date is set for December 18, 2015.

While there’s still a lot of work to be done yet (like filming) we’ll be sure to update you as we hear anything new.

Shooting is scheduled to take place at Pinewood Studios in London in Spring 2014.
