The wait is over and we now have the official release date of our next adventure to the galaxy far, far away. J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" will hit AMC Theatres on December 18, 2015.
This is a smart move for a variety of different reasons. First of all, it's a hot month for film releases. A ton of Oscar contenders are always released in December. Look at last year with "Django" and "Les Miserables", the year prior with "The Adventures of Tin Tin" and "War Horse", and so on. The month has also been a big one with films produced by hopeful studios.
Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, also touched on the prime holiday release, which always finds people out of work and school. Horn stated,"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."
