The news of Episode VII has taken everybody by surprise and with the announced release date of 2015 being only a little over two years away I wonder just when exactly Episode VII is suppose to come out. Using the prequels as a model filming would begin sometime in late June of 2013 and wrap sometime in mid to late September. Post production would last 18 to 19 months for a May 2015 release date. Every previous Star Wars film has opened just before Memorial Day weekend and the official start of summer. If Disney was to give Episode VII a traditional summer release date that would put it on either May 15th or May 22nd of 2015, however Disney has already scheduled The Avengers 2 for May 1st. That would only be a mere two or three weeks between what will be the two biggest films of that year. Would Disney do that? Would they move it back to June or July? Another possibility is Disney will have The Avengers for the summer and Star Wars for the holidays, either November or December. While this would break the tradition of summer Star Wars movies it would give them six more months to work on the film. Personally I'm hoping for May of 2015. Thoughts?
