Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy approached Brad Bird first but he is currently making Tomorrowland for release in summer 2015 which is the same date they want for Star Wars, he said no.
As I said above, Tomorrowland
is currently scheduled for December 2014, which would still preclude him from making Star Wars for summer 2015.
