     August 26, 2013

Before we can get to the juicy bits of Star Wars news like confirmed casting and plot points, we first have to figure out when they’re going to start filming the damn thing.  A few months back, Star Wars: Episode VII producer Bryan Burk told Steve that they were aiming for a January 2014 start date for filming and were still trying to coordinate schedules and get the script to the necessary level for a production start.  It looks like things may be a bit more gelled now as a hard date has emerged for the kick-off of production on one of the most-anticipated films in decades.  There’s also a bit more evidence leading to a late-2015 release of the film.  Hit the jump for more.

Latino Review, who recently landed a solid Guardians of the Galaxy casting scoop, have it on good authority that Star Wars: Episode VII will kick it into gear on January 21, 2014, the Tuesday just after Monday’s Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.  They’re also hearing that a Christmas 2015 release date is likely for the sequel, which further supports an earlier report.
