    Repeating something over and over again does not make it true.

    Set Harth - Be honest. How old were you when you saw Star Wars for the first time? Because unless you were in your twenties or something that comment is just kind of odd. A new trilogy with a new generation of characters should totally also want to appeal to a new generation of viewers, just as most franchises handle their appeal.

    I like the hint of the lead being a young woman. And let's remember they are in no way bound to the EU, so they could easily give Luke a sole female child for these movies (or alternately - and perhaps more plausibly - the girl could be his granddaughter.)

    Sssh. Temis is addressing the strictly imaginary contingent who assumed that the new trilogy will be an Old People Reunion like the TOS films, as Temis has been doing all along.

    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.

    Why would that be more plausible? It's been 30 years since Return of the Jedi. Even if Luke impregnated a woman the day right after the death of the Emperor any daughter of his would be around 29 and any child of hers would probably be around 10 at best.

    There are many, many gifted actors in this generation.

    Making money?

    I have a cunning plan, the young actors they cast could use a technique known as... acting.

    I think Temis sees special posts that only appear to him/her - they are like force ghosts.

    So now we know how they will hit that 2015 deadline.

    Re: Want a Mara Jade in E7

    Summer Glau jinxed every TV show she ever appeared on. I got nothing against her, so long as she stays away my Star Wars. :)

    I think her acting is mediocre at best, I can't see her being selected for a role.

    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.
