The last Star Wars movie, Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, came out in 2005 and returned original stars Mayhew, Baker and Daniels. Disney announced in 2012 that they intended to make new Star Wars films following their purchase of Lucasfilms. The first of the new films – Star Wars: Episode VII – will be directed by J.J. Abrams. Filming will start in Spring 2014 for the film, which has a Dec. 18, 2015 release date.
