Lately, almost every bit of news we've received about the next Star Wars flick has suggested that Disney is not getting any closer to actually filming the movie. A few weeks ago we learned Oscar-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt was relieved of his script-writing duties for Episode VII and replaced by J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan. And of course there's been casting rumor after casting rumor, but nothing has been confirmed, just today another open casting call went out in the UK.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Disney is apparently planning to push the release of Star Wars 7 from spring/summer to fall/winter 2015—at least if you believe some Dutch guy named Dennis Barbie.

Barbie, you see, is Disney's Director of Retail for the Netherlands, and yesterday he took to Twitter to spill some beans:

Saw today some awesome first features/plans of new StarWars 7 movie coming end this moment it is planned for end of CY15 but in the entertainment business you will never know.

Of course, later on he tried to take it all back:

OMG didn't think my post would be picked up like this.Was just guessing period I have no real info on StarWars.

But nobody is buying that, because pushing back the release date just makes too much sense at this point.

So congrats, Barbie. You broke the news! Have fun being demoted to the mail room.
