Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Great writer, though. He knows how to write Star Wars, that much is clear.

Point.

(Seriously, he has characters say that way too much. It got annoying over the years. )

He knows to start books with Star Destroyers - so there's that.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Sometimes - occasionally - the very best Star Wars tends to begin with a Star Destroyer.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Even after all the decades of adventures and close calls with destruction, Artoo always cleans up well. He's rarely been that clean, polished and shiny. Some of these droids were built to last.

It's remarkable (if you think about it) that a beeping tin can actually has personality.. let alone that much personality!

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

A rolling trash can with a blinking dome has more personality than Anakin Skywalker. Who'd have guessed?

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

^Every Star Wars fan knows that Artoo is the real hero of the saga. Everyone else is just a supporting character.

Artoo is just a CPU. They probably put him in a new body every decade

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

By the time the Sequel Trilogy is completed Artoo and Threepio will be the only characters who appear in all nine Episodes of the Saga (unless spirit Anakin and/or Obi-Wan surface to guide Luke in each of the new films).

The woman is Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, George's successor. I don't recognize the guy on the far right.

It's George Osbourne, a British Chancellor. The three are announcing the first stand-alone Star Wars film will be filmed in Britain
