J.j. Abrams - Star Wars Episode VII set for December 2015 release?
'Star Wars Episode VII' is allegedly going to be pushed back to a Christmas release date to give director J.J. Abrams more time to complete production.
'Star Wars Episode VII' is being tipped for a December 2015 release date.
The new chapter of the intergalactic adventure will reportedly break with the franchise's May release tradition to debut just before Christmas, according to a new report by Badass Digest.
The website cites ''multiple sources'' claiming that Disney and Lucasfilm are eyeing up a release date around the 11th or the 13th of the month.
The move would give director J.J. Abrams much-needed extra time to complete the necessary filming and visual effects for the big-budget film, since production is only to begin in 2014.
It has also been claimed that the sci-fi sequel could be moved to a 2016 release date over concerns the 'LOST' helmer won't be able to finish in time.
Meanwhile, Abrams and his Bad Robot production company have released a mysterious teaser for a new project entitled 'Stranger'.
The video shows a ragged man emerging onto the beach from the ocean as a voiceover talking about endings and beginnings, before showing a man with his mouth stitched shut.
Fans are in disagreement over what the clip could signify, but a new TV series seems a likely option.
