The December release of the "Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens" is now only two months away and more revealing details are divulged to the public including the fact that it would not be "Disney-fied."

One of the most exciting news for Star Wars fans is the fact that the film already has its final cut which means an official running time would be revealed.

In fact, according to Following The Nerd, the seventh Star Wars film to date will run a total of 136 minutes and would carry a 12A certificate in the United Kingdom which basically means that the movie has been rated PG-13.

However, it is important to note that the outlet did not claim to have learned this information from Disney, Lucasfilm or anyone directly involved in the making of the movie but they did say that they are "100% certain" that their report is correct.

"Well, the source that gave us that info has revealed the UK details on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We are 100% certain this info is good, guys," the report read.

Meanwhile, "The Force Awakens" helmer J.J. Abrams clarified any misunderstanding about who owns the film and what its implications are.

"When you do a Disney project, there's a clause in there that you kind of go, 'Well, if I were a lawyer I could probably drive a truck through it,'" he explained in a Vanity Fair panel discussion, referring to the fact that Disney does own the rights to the film.

He also cleared the air for some Star Wars fans that are worried that the House of Mouse would be altering the seventh installment of the franchise into something he called a "Disney-fied" film and lauded the studio's smart-thinking during the entire production process.

"They're not trying to 'Disney-fy' it. They're not doing anything other than, I think, an incredibly smart thing, which is letting Kathleen Kennedy--who is a remarkable person and producer--run and lead Lucasfilm to a place where I think it wants to go. They let us make the movie we wanted to make," he added.

According to Forbes contributor Scott Mendelson, this made the Internet breath "what could only be called a sigh of relief" after learning that the film would not be produced as a form of "just for kids" entertainment.

However, Mendelson noted that "Disney-fying" the intergalactic film may not be such a bad thing considering how their past films had turned out.

Regardless, the film has yet to see the light of day and could only be judged after it is released on December 18.
