00:49

The next installment of Disney's "Star Wars" franchise, originally slated to debut on May 26, 2017, will now be released on Dec. 15, 2017, seven months later than originally planned. The company did not cite specific reasons for the push, but did note the success of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which smashed box office records in December.
