New Star Wars movie name revealed

The new Star Wars film is to be called The Force Awakens, Walt Disney Pictures announced today.

The movie had previously only been known as Episode VII.

Disney also said that principal photography has wrapped up on the JJ Abrams-directed sequel six months after it began.

The shoot was one of the most closely-followed productions in recent memory, with constant rumours emanating from the tightly-guarded set.

Shooting shut down for several weeks in July after Harrison Ford broke his leg during filming at Pinewood Studios outside London.

The Force Awakens will be released in December 2015.
