Episode VII update
To start fresh, you'd need a new cast, new characters and new story lines to last you through at least 3 more movies (possibly 6) But aren't they going to include the old cast from Star Wars? I've even read some wonderful rumors that they'll be incorporating the characters from the Expanded Universe, which would be great but I'm pretty sure won't happen.
Again, my suggestion these should take place 150 after Return of the Jedi make sense. Thing is, Hollywood rarely makes sense.
Still looking forward to what they're going to do with it. Filming has to start this year so they can begin working on the special effects I would think. Casting will be announce by the summer I'm sure and more news will begin to pour out as we move through 2014.
Only time will tell if I'm still with around for the premiere when it's all said and done.
Oh and did anyone hear about the Simon Pegg rumors about him being in future installments of the series? I know he's a huge fan but geez to frag, if we put everyone who's a fan of Star Wars in these movies we'd have William Shatner to Pope Benedict XVI asking to be in it!
