The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.

Director J.J. Abrams says, "We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud."

Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.

Lucas = Good Writer, BAD Director.

Empire was awesome, Jedi was good enough, and all 3 original Indy movies he wrote were damn good. While Star Wars was great, and so was american graffiti....he must of got lucky. Just don't let that guy direct his own story.

Note: I have repressed his involvement with the raping of Indiana Jones.

Lucas didn't write Empire or much of Jedi - Kasdan did, and he's involved in writing the new ones. Which is why I'm hopeful.


Edit - Kasdan also wrote Raiders of the Lost Ark

Well, you may be correct is his actual involvement but he is credited as a writer /the writer of each and everyone of them.

Lucas is a horrible writer. Empire is widely known as the best of the Star Wars movies and it is the only one that Lucas had no hand in writing. A New Hope was based on his original idea so he got a writing credit for it while Lawrence Kasdan is the one who did the majority of the work. And Jedi was also a co-written endeavor between Kasdan and Lucas, and I would imagine the main contribution Lucas made was the stupid Ewoks.

It is no coincidence that the prequel trilogy is terrible. He wrote the entire trilogy by himself.

Raiders of the Lost Ark was also Lawrence Kasdan doing the majority of the writing from an idea of Lucas. Temple of Doom and Last Crusade were written by a guy named Jeffrey Boam from Lucas ideas. Kingdom of the Crystal skull-**** was written by a group of people, but it is widely known that Lucas was the main driving force behind the story. Was completely inflexible with the story.

So when Lucas is completely in charge of writing or story, the movie is ****. When he can have ideas, but let someone with talent do the actual work of putting it all together it can be great.

Sorry guys, i just went by what the credits have told me for years. I'm definitely not gonna claim High Star Wars status.

I hate Lucas for ruining Indy more than Star Wars. At least Star Wars was all his.

I'll stick with: American Graffiti was good.

Nor was Return of the Jedi, but we can thank him for the Ewoks. That was the beginning of the end for him. Well the Christmas Special really was, but the Ewoks just sealed it.

Damon Lindelof has a lot to do with JJ Abrams ending problems (a lot of people pin Lost on Abrams... he actually had almost nothing to do with that show after co-writing and directing the pilot). This new installment is co-written by Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote the best Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back. That's a hopeful sign but I'm still keeping my expectations fairly minimal. The prequel movies really killed a lot of enthusiasm I used to have over Star Wars.

Kasdan will do a good job.

Supposedly, it IS to be set 30 years after Return of the Jedi. Probably, the last 30 years will be explained in the famous opening crawl...

There are a number of books that do that, and even though the EU will get stepped on there are some thing that they can't change.
