Default Star Wars Episode VII

J.J. Abrams set to direct. Michael Arndt to pen the screenplay. My faith in the future of the franchise has been restored.

The final quote in the article is exactly how I'm feeling right now: ‘‘He took the ‘Star Trek’ franchise, which was just drowning in misery, and he was able to bring that back to life,’’ Frazier said. ‘‘If there’s anyone that can do it with ‘Star Wars’ I think it’s him.’’

All Star Wars really needed was someone with a strong love for the Original Trilogy. The Mythos is complete....All it needed was a competent caretaker, some one that won't screw with stuff. I think Abrams can do that just fine.

George Lucas selling the franchise is the best thing to happen to Star Wars since Luke got his arm cut off.

If you've seen Super 8 then you know JJ can make an imitation Spielberg film, I'm ready for his version of Star Wars. And he absolutely loves the franchise, probably way more than Lucas did since 1978.

BTW, I'm glad Disney found someone who has a love for Star Wars. It makes me think that he won't take it to an unrecognizable direction...

I was hoping for Joss Whedon. Abrams will do fine though.

Yeah, I don't know. The best thing about Whedon's work, in my opinion, is the dialogue. But he won't be writing Ep. 7, it's already being written by Michael Arndt, the guy who wrote Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3. A guy who, by the way, is a huuuuuuge Star Wars nut. I think we're in good hands with JJ Abrams.

The special effects of 2001: A Space Odyssey, for instance, have been praised in the past for their striking realism; however, modern producers have sagely detected the lack of lens flare that might distract from the scene of the alignment of the planets and the monolith.

Fair points. When I watched Firefly, I kept thinking it was an ode to Star Wars in so many ways.

^Exactly.

I just watched Episode 4 for the first time last weekend. If I can make time, I might try to catch 5 this weekend. People speak highly of them so I figure I'll check the series out.
