Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I've been a Star Wars fan for all 34 years of my existence. I remember the dark times, where being a fan meant you were out in the wilderness. I remember the announcement of the prequels.

This, IMHO, is great news. What's the alternative? Lucas dies and a hack takes over?

Instead we have Kathleen Kennedy, co-founder of Amblin Entertainment and friend of Lucas running Lucasfilm with Lucas writing treatments for new movies. Spielberg, who worked on Episode III, may even direct Episode VII (though that's speculation).

This is not the Empire co-opting the Rebels--this is Star Wars getting a solid benefactor with Lucas ensuring the franchise continues with his vision. Great news.
