With pre-production in full-swing, a confirmed release date of December 18, 2015, has been set for Lucasfilm's highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII. The film will be released in 3D.

"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," said Alan Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams (Super 8, Mission: Impossible III, Star Trek) and is being scripted by Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi). Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, with Tommy Harper (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Jack Ryan, Star Trek Into Darkness) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds) serving as executive producers. John Williams is returning to score Star Wars: Episode VII.

Shooting is scheduled to begin spring 2014 at Pinewood Studios.

Disney also announced today that director Brad Bird's Tomorrowland has been pushed back from a December 12, 2014 release and will now open on May 22, 2015. Written by Damon Lindelof and Bird, the film stars George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Thomas Robinson and Kathryn Hahn.
