    Nice poster but being an Abrams production shouldn't the Jedi have his back to us, the grass be on fire and one of the moons shaped like Darth Vader's ass?

    Well at least they got the Lightsaber lens flare right.

    So Episode 7 will look like a KOTOR 2 level?

    ...I can live with that. :cool:

    If Abrams puts references to the two Force Unleashed games in the new film I'll give him a kidney. Even if he doesn't need it.

    Well, this is cute. The first thing that Abrams does as director is pushes back the 2015 release date. Why was he hired again if he can't make the intended release date? Hire someone that actually will make it to 2015.

    Where did you see this? I haven't heard anything about a new delay related to Abrams.

    Yes, clearly what any franchise needs is someone who will rush the product out in the shortest amount of time. :rolleyes:

    Here's the link: http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/GraphicCity/news/?a=73265.

    Seriously, I think Abrams is biting off more than he can chew. If I blew $4 billion for the rights of Star Wars, I would want to see that made back as soon as possible. It's not like the movie is slated for next summer. Shouldn't be too hard of a task for Star Wars to come out by 2015, especially with all of the hype Disney put behind it.

    No Star Wars film has ever faced a release delay because of production timing or related issues. Disney and Lucas will push to get Episode VII out on time in May of 2015 as originally announced. If that means Abrams has to pawn off some of his other producing and directing duties on other films to other people then so be it.

    Anything less than a faithful adaptation of Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy containing references to the Holiday Special, the Droids cartoon series, Caravan of Courage and Star Tours will confirm to me that Abrams is a total fucking talentless hack.

    There's got to be wiggle room. I also noticed in the linked story that another "Avengers" movie is slated to be released in 2015. Might be Disney would want to evaluate whether or not its "Star Wars" movie would be in any competition with its "Avengers" movie.

    A "Star Wars" movie and an "Avengers" movie in the same year. That could be a billion dollar year for Disney, easy. Maybe Donald Duck will finally have enough money to buy some pants.

    Is this where Paramount gets pissy and replaces Abrams with Brett Ratner for Star Trek 3?

    So, let me get this straight. If SWVII doesn't reference the Holiday Special, then Abrams is a talentless hack?!? :rofl:

    I say we petition Disney and Lucasfilm to put remastered stock footage of Bea Arthur's Ackmena into the new movie just to give certain fans complete meltdowns.

    I believe, Captain, this is the illogical human phenomenon known as "sarcasm." Also filed under, "it was a fucking joke."
