Wow, if all goes according to plan, 2015 will see the release of Avengers 2. Justice League and Star Wars. Wow. What a summer that will be.
And who knows? We might get the third Abramsverse TREK film in 2015, too.

^ I wouldn't be so sure. Trek films take a while to make, just like SW films do. 2016, maybe.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I still have a feeling this is going to end up as some type of series reboot.

It's more likely to be 2016, with the 50th anniversary.

Nope. They are already calling it Episode VII

It's not. It's Episode VII...a direct continuation of the same universe and continuity of the Prequels and the Original Trilogy.

I imagine they'll retain John Williams for Episodes VII-IX provided the man is still alive and kicking and can contribute new compositions to the Saga.
For the love of all that is holy, they'd better! Star Wars isn't Star Wars without John Williams.
That's the best part of all this! John Williams writes new music! Even when the prequels were at their suckiest, the music was still great.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Anakin and Padme's love theme in Attack of the Clones was one of the best things about the second prequel. Even if the acting between Hayden and Natalie was atrocious the Williams score made it seem epic.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

If someone were to ask me what I wanted, it's this:
- No reboot.
- No continuation.


Think about it: a galaxy is billions of billions of stars and planets. What makes Star Wars so unique is the idea of Star Wars... so there are many other kinds and types of characters with epic stories that can be told.. the Skywalkers don't define an entire universe.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

If they decide to use the original actors/actresses in a live action film(s), they'd pretty much have to jump all the way to the LOTF/FOTJ-era for their characters to be roughly the same ages. If they opt for something closer to ROTJ, they'd either have to recast or do something CGI where their aged appearance wouldn't matter. They might, of course, still have to get new voice actors though Hamill might possibly reprise his role as Luke, Williams will probably be willing to do Lando and Daniels, well, he'll always do C3P0. Doubt Ford will take Solo up again and Fisher, well......... However, having listened to the Star Wars radio dramas, they found decent counterparts for most of the main characters, so I don't think that that would be too much of a problem. The Thrawn Trilogy would be the most ideal storyline continuation IMHO.

I'd actually like to see an Alien Exodus film.

There, I said it.

We can only hope and pray to Vol that doesn't happen.
