`Star Wars Episode 7` to release in 2015 December

Los Angeles: The upcoming `Star Wars` instalment, to be directed by JJ Abrams, is reportedly up for a December 2015 release, instead of May.

With all previous six instalments having been filmed in Britain and released in May, many people believe that the upcoming "Star Wars" chapter will continue the tradition.

However, according to a report, this upcoming film might be the first to break the history despite the fact that the production will still take place Britain.

The highly-anticipated film will see the return of some original cast members, including Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. David Prowse, who played Darth Vader in the original trilogy, admits he wants to take part in it.

"Unfortunately Darth Vader was killed off. But it would be nice to come back and do another character, because no one`s ever seen my face. I was never unmasked," Prowse said.
