Last week we ran this tweet from Dennis Barbie, Disney’s director of retail in the Netherlands. He let everyone know he was going to this Lucasfilm meeting in Paris to learn about the new film. Now today he confirmed that Star Wars Episode VII is coming at the end of the 2015 calendar year.
Edit: Dennis Barbie has since deleted his tweets:
It certainly sounds like Jedi News was correct and all the rumblings of an 11-11-15 target release date are correct for now. This also lends some credence to the THR story that Kathleen Kennedy asked for a 2016 release date but was denied. With 2015 being firm, they are going to release the movie at the very end of 2015, really close to 2016.
I suppose that’s your story and you’re stickin’ to it? I respect that.
