Whoa! Did you feel that great disturbance in the force?
No, the Death Star hasn't blown up any more planets; the force you felt was actually the lightsaber in our pants stiffening as we learned the latest Star Wars news!!!
J.J. Abrams' Episode VII finally found itself a released date: December 2015!
That's Wookiee for "we can't friggin' wait!"
According to several sources, there is a good chance the flick will hit theaters in December '15, which is significant because it would mark the first time in franchise history that a Star Wars movie premiered in a month other than May!
We still don't know much else about the film (except, sadly, that Ryan Gosling was not cast as an Ewok,) but we're beyond excited to see who they pick!
Hopefully there will be a role for Mark Hamill because Luke Skywalker is a cultural icon, and he really shouldn't be snaggin' smokes from ashtrays!
We'll all find out together in a just a shade over two years!
