I'm really not sure what I feel about this...George Lucas *not* writing/directing means it could be good...by just because GL isn't a part of this is no guarantee of quality...it all depends on who's on the creative team that writes, produc...es and directs...and given Hollywood's recent track record (especially on big-budget blockbusters franchises that are just out to make money...)
Plus, is 2015 enough time to write and plan and make a quality film!? I'd prefer it if the plan was to *start* production in 2015...unless Lucas uses one of his old outlines for episodes 7-9...but even them. I'd prefer this have a "Lord of the Rings" style preproduction process...if it's to be any good.
Plus...episodes 1-3 really burned me out of Star Wars. It they can redeem it, I'm all for it...but I'd rather they not run it further into the ground, you know?
