Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine\ Toy Story 3 hired to write Episode VII.

I can't get through the end of Toy STory 3 without sobbing, so the man can definitely write.
Excellent choice. Arndt hasn't been around very long but his resume is impressive to say the least. He also co-wrote the upcoming Hunger Games film, Catching Fire.

I've seen Idris Elba's name bandied about. That would make me happy.

The very thought of it makes me happy. Maybe he could be the down-to-earth Han Solo type for this trilogy. Or some serene Jedi master. Or... just give him a big part already.

Idris Elba's name is always bandied about. For any upcoming project.

My favorite name to throw into casting rings lately is Michael Fassbender.

Yeah, I think movie blogs can safely lie about having an inside scoop about Fassbender being cast in any movie. There's like 50% chance it'd be true.

Yeah, a short cammeo. A Mos Eisley hooker, they say.

By all means, let's cast our principals from a young, vapid generation that don't act real good and have no clue what SW is really about.

Because that worked so well last time.
Making money?

Don't know about GA, but the latter was barely even a guest appearance. More like a syfy celeb cammeo, like LaVar Burton in the last one.

Firefly, The 4400, TSCC, Dollhouse, The Cape... Doesn't look good for Alphas either. Talk about a track record.

She and Lindsay Lohan as a pair of aging hookers who "entertained the troops" during the "Empire years."

Bad news, everyone...
Vulture: Arndt's treatment features a "Son of Jar Jar and Chewbacca" sidekick

Highly-placed sources within Lucasfilm are telling Vulture that Michael Ardnt's "Sequel Trilogy" treatment features a wacky child sidekick-type character who's the love child of Jar Jar Binks and Chewbacca. The "Gungie" hybrid, carried to term by Chewbacca's sister-in-law, was purportedly added at the request of senior consultant George Lucas, in order to "help the sidekick character motifs of the three trilogies rhyme". These same sources also tell us that, as a highly personal request that is one of Lucas' few contributions to the new trilogy, franchise steward Kathleen Kennedy is likely to be be "fiercely protective" of the character in future consultations with Lucasfilm's new Disney overlords.

Humor. It is a difficult concept.

We all know it's a joke. The question: is it funny?
