The first day of principal photographer, or the actual production, of Star Wars Episode VII will be January 21, 2014.
That’s according to what sources told the Latino Review.
The newest Star Wars film will start shooting on a Tuesday because that Monday, the 20th, is Martin Luther King Day.
J.J. Abrams is directing the film, and the writers are Michael Arndt and George Lucas. Many of the original cast members will likely reprise their roles, including Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), and Carrie Fisher (Leia Solo), according to IMDb.
So along with the first shooting date, when is the film actually going to come out?
Again relying on sources since Disney hasn’t released much information about the film, Badass Digest reports that a December 2015 released is planned. The middle of the month, the 15th or around then, is most likely.
A Disney studio executive has confirmed a 2015 release date.
