Good things come to those who wait… right? We sure hope so, because after what felt like ages of hopeful anticipation, the news finally broke that "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams is manning "Star Wars: Episode VII," leading to mass euphoric hysteria excitement all around.

However, just as we're coming down off this contact high, rumors have surfaced that Abrams might not make the initial target release date, which Disney had announced as sometime in 2015. While there was never an official announcement committing to that timeline, we kinda thought it was going to happen by then, what with the public enthusiasm and all. But, according to Cinema Blend, sources in the know have been quoted saying the director "has not committed to that release date" and is reserving the right to push that "Star Wars" date back if his production schedule demands it.

We're torn on this news, as we're eager to see the next installment on the big screen (and we've never been all that patient), but we also want it to be, you know, completely awesome. And it's hard to make a good movie when you don't have the time you need to do it — or so we hear. For now, it seems we just have to sit tight and see what happens. On the plus side, we're getting really good at that.
