Okay...I wasn't expecting any of this at all. I'm stunned.

Oh and I would be surprised if George does not have a credit on this new movie. I am sure he will be a creative consultant at least.

That's a pretty damn quick turn around, in my mind... Unless they already have scripts in draft/development.. Or then again, maybe that doesn't matter...
They could just decide to film the Zahn trilogy...

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This news is going to own all genre message boards for the next week as details emerge.

I don't recall Disney buying Marvel for $4Billion being big news.

I think this is bigger for the sheer fact an EPISODE 7 is being touted as not only coming but being given a general target date!!

I think they'll have no trouble getting Mark Hamil to return in some capacity. The Droids are easy enough as would Chewie if need be. I don't see an immediate scenario where Carrie Fisher or Harrison Ford return. Uncle Luke can mentor the twins in an Obi-Wan role to the twins depending on how they structure this.

I bet we can also start seeing a bunch of CGI Star Wars adventures popping up. It seems every few months Tinkerbell has a new DVD on the shelves.

I want flash backs of Mara Jade in her prime. We are long over due for live action Mara.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I don't think it'll be a reboot, but a sequel. There may be Threepio and Artoo--and perhaps some new kid that will be the newest in the Skywalker line--but I think it will indeed be something that builds on the previous six films. Unlike Star Trek, Star Wars really doesn't have that much onscreen baggage. Even the Clone Wars TV series sits in its own pocket corner, when you think about it.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

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?

Me, I'm calling BS on this. Even if they started filming right this minute, there's no way they could get a film ready for release by 2015. Blockbusters, SW films especially, take years to make.
The modern moviemaking process disagrees. They could start filming by mid-2013 at the earliest and easily have the movie done in time.

Didn't this mofo say there weren't going to be any more films?

Or did he just say he wasn't going to make any more?

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This idea that this new film will be a reboot doesn't fit with the facts of what we know. They wouldn't have labeled and announced it as 'Star Wars Episode 7' if it weren't meant to finally kick off the sequel trilogy that SW fans have known about in general terms for years.

Heard the news; knew I should come here and enjoy the drama.

Personally I think we're in for a lot of hilarity, one way or another. You know, just the other day, I was thinking how long it's been since ROTS, so I'm looking actually forward to it. We'll see. But if there's a fucking Jedi Princess who bursts into song, I'm outta there...

This thread has really ballooned up fast.

It would be nice if they can bring back the old guard just like they did with the new Dallas.

I'd love to see that. Who would they get if they were casting now?
