RUMOR: Episode VII Casting Announcements Coming in October?
Reported by Justin on 25 Sep 2013 21:08

An article posted over on Black Pool Citizen, in which it references Bleeding Cool's report about actor Peter Mayhew's desire to reprise his role as Chewbacca in Episode VII, has a very interesting last paragraph:

Official casting announcements are expected around October, before production starts in January 2014. The film is scheduled to be released in 2015.

Now obviously this could be nothing more than pure speculation, given that October will mark one year since the Disney/Lucasfilm acquisition was officially announced. But with October right around the corner, you never know. And it would be a perfect way to celebrate the first anniversary of the union that will be taking Star Wars fans on all-new adventures in the years ahead.
