Rumor: Episode VII to be Released on May 29th, 2015 POSTED BY DOMINIC ON 6/22/20131 COMMENTS By: Dominic Jones Could Star Wars Episode VII have it's release date? A source is telling Cosmic Book News that Disney is planing to release the highly anticipated film on May 29th, 2015. This is backed up by the fact that 20th Century Fox recently moved the release date for Assassin's Creed up to June 19th, 2015 and speculation is that this move was made to avoid competing with The Avengers 2and Star Wars Episode VII. The May 29th release date is an interesting one. It keeps the tradition of releasing Star Wars films in May alive, while still providing four weeks in between Disney's other major release, The Avengers 2, which is due out on May 4th, 2015. Remember this is just a rumor and nothing is official until Disney or Lucasfilm announces it.
