Disney delays release of next 'Star Wars' to late 2017

The next and eighth episode in the "Star Wars" saga will premiere in December 2017, seven months later than originally planned, Disney and Lucasfilm announced Wednesday.
"The move follows the extraordinary success of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens,' which was the first 'Star Wars' movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records," the studios said in a statement on the website www.starwars.com.
The seventh episode in the series, "The Force Awakens," quickly surpassed the US$760.5 million record set in 2009 by "Avatar" to become the top-grossing film ever in the North American market.
