Report: ‘Star Wars, Episode VII’ Set to Start Production January 21st, 2014

What’s it been? A day? Two days since a Star Wars rumor?

This should hold you over until the next huge Episode VII reveal.

Last week, we reported that Star Wars, Episode VII was going to most likely be getting a Christmas 2015 release. Even if it weren’t true and was going for a more traditional release in May 2015, many surmised that the film would have to go into production soon if director J. J. Abrams and executive producer Kathleen Kennedy were going to make the 2015 deadline at all.

Latino Review, a site that has been leaking info all year on high profile productions with surprising accuracy, has another report up their sleeve. According to them, Star Wars, Episode VII will go into production January 21st, 2014 and will in fact be released the following Christmas season in 2015.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the Christmas release window. I’m a sucker for tradition and a was really hoping that we were less than two years away from a new Star Wars film, but now, it seems more and more likely that I and other fans of the hugely popular franchise will have to wait just a little longer than we were hoping.

If true, one would expect casting announcements in the next few months.
