All we know so far is that it'll be a Disney film and George Lucas will be on board as consultant.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VII (2015, D: Unknown, S: Unknown)

I wonder how many pages this thread will be by the time the movie opens in 2015.

It's going to be a total Geek wish list for all the Star Wars Nerds here.

Anyone thinking this film is going to be worth a shit is delusional. I have no interest. There's been enough movies. Leave it alone. Who am I kidding. Disney is going to bleed Star Wars until there is nothing left to bleed.

This can only mean good things AFAIC (as long as it's not animated).

Wow. Incredible to believe but I always saw the SW films as indie projects. I wonder if that feeling will be gone with these new films.

Anyone else find it amusing that of all people Groucho is starting a thread about a movie nerds only dreamed about for decades? Sounds like some cruel joke thread.

STAR WARS VII in 3 years means:

A quick job.

Just adapt the Timothy Zahn movies, and bam-bam-bam! You've got a new trilogy.

Dude, let the Lucas hate go. This isn't about Lucas or the prequels or his qualities as a director, or lack thereof. If you think in 2015 that Disney is going to make a Star Wars film that can touch the originals, I've got a bridge. It's not going to happen. It's just going to come off cheesy and bad. Let the Star Wars movies be as far as I'm concerned. I might also add an animated TV show isn't comparable to a feature film.

Do you really think Disney of all people pumping out new Star Wars films every 2 years, until it's run into the ground, is a good thing? I don't.

If they go into production sometime around 2013-2014, he will be 72 give or take.

Due to the ages of the original cast that's still alive, I don't know honestly how likely we would see them.

I know he hates the character, but with the right script...who knows? That's assuming that this trilogy takes place years after Return of the Jedi, rather than being a continuation with all the roles recast.

Josh Hutchinson as Luke! Miley Cyrus as Leia! Honey Boo Boo as Wicket!

Another sad thing about this. Although that's minor quibble.

I'd bet none of them would have any desire to be in another Star Wars film.
