New 'Star Wars' film is titled 'The Force Awakens'
NEW YORK - The new "Star Wars" film has a title.
Walt Disney Pictures announced Thursday that the movie previously known only as "Episode VII" has been dubbed "The Force Awakens." Disney also said that principal photography has wrapped up on the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel six months after it began.
The shoot was one of the most closely followed productions in recent memory, with constant rumors emanating from the tightly guarded set. Shooting shut down for several weeks in July after Harrison Ford broke his leg during filming at the Pinewood Studios outside London.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will be released in December 2015.
