Disney’s announced a date for the next Star Wars film, the seventh in the series:
“Star Wars: Episode VII” has an official release date: Dec. 18, 2015.
“We’re very excited to share the official 2015 release date for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ where it will not only anchor the popular holiday filmgoing season but also ensure our extraordinary filmmaking team has the time needed to deliver a sensational picture,” Alan Horn, chairman of Walt Disney Studios, said in a press release announcing the date. “Star Wars: Episode VII” was initially expected to arrive sometime during that previous summer. (All six previous “Star Wars” films were released during the month of May.)
In a separate press release from Disney regarding the move, it was also revealed that “Episode VII” will screen in 3D.
Should they keep making more? It’s hard to keep a series going. (I thought that the Lord of the Rings trilogy succeeded, but that the Matrix trilogy should have stopped after the first, good film.)
So what do you think about more Star Wars films? I’d like to see another good film (the first was very good, indeed) , but I’m doubtful. How about you?
