    Early April makes the most sense for a title. The DVD comes out early April, so right around then I think they'll be looking to reinject Star Wars into the zeitgeist. As for casting, I think we're getting it this month or early next month. They're not going to be able to hide it with filming happening unless they've seriously stepped up their security game, and with the success of TFA I don't see why they'd feel that need.

    I would expect some cast to be anoced when they start filming at the end of this month but the full cast will probably be at ether the Anaheim Celebration or the London one in July

    We got the casting announcement for Episode VII at about exactly this time...as in, two weeks before principal photography.

    The title for TFA came out about one year and one and a half months before release. Which would be about April 2016 this time around if the same schedule applies, and there's no guarantee that it does.

    There's also Star Wars Celebration 2016 over the summer and San Diego Comic Con and D23.
