Casting call has been sent out. Considering the lack of their archetype, I'd say Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford have already been cast. That's been rumored and practically confirmed for a while now, though...

I hope not.  I hope they go in a completely original direction and ignore all the post-Endor EU stuff.

I hear there was some really good stuff in the Legacy of Thrawn series, but if I never see any of the crap from LotF and the Vong I'll be happy.

To be honest, I'm more worried about the quality of how they tell the story over the story itself.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

If they at least borrow some cool ideas from the post-Endor stuff I'll be satisfied!

Sounds like a bunch of new Jedi recruits!

I think anything with the Yuuzhan Vong would be huge to tackle for a trilogy.    I have a feeling it may be a Darth Caedus arc.

I suspect it wont have anything to do at all with established cannon.

Considering the number of people who otherwise consider themselves fans of Star Wars who looked at the Yuuzhan Vong premise and gave a big W-T-F???   I'd be very, VERY surprised if JJ Abrams would willingly choose to go that route. 

I cannot easily articulate the myriad things that would be wrong about it, so I'll leave it at that. 

I'm all for something fresh, but hopefully something that at least feels like classic Star Wars...not an extra-galactic invasion that makes the Galactic Civil War and the Clone Wars look like minor spats among neighbours.

It just occured to me we could have Temeura Morrison come back as an old Boba Fett. How cool would that be? Just imagine Han Solo and old Boba sitting at a table in a cantina somewhere about to get in a fight or grumbling about old age together.

I'd be willing to wager that Boba Fett is still dead via Sarlacc in the movie-reality of Star Wars.  Almost everyone in the world is a casual Star Wars fan  (meaning they've seen the movies and rather enjoyed them.)   To those people....Boba Fett...if they even know the name of the guy...is that guy that died by falling into that tentalce-wielding mouth in the desert.

Bringing him back in a movie would cause a lot of confusion for the general movie-going public.

Why would they be confused? Movies find ways for people to come back from way worse things than that...

True, but it would be necessary to devote screen time to an explanation; either showing it, or having exposition of it.  Can't just have him show up and say to the casual movie goer: 'Because he didn't die in the expanded universe dumb-shebs!  Read-a-book....GAWD!'

I just can't see them spending the time to do this for an ancillary character; unless he is somehow going to be a major part of the story.  And given his treatment in previous films; it would seem awkward if he was.

I love boba-fett; but part of his coolness is that he IS in the background.  Mystery is what made him a beloved character. Too much exposition could ruin him....for the casual Star Wars fan.   He's been done to death in the EU, and I don't think it's for the better.

From what I have gathered, even non hardcore fans realize Boba isn't dead.   The hardcore fans have let them know plenty of times. ;D


But I agree with you Dred, I hope they do not focus on him much or he will be ruined.

One of the panels I attended at Celebration Europe II was the "Lost secrets of Return of the Jedi", with Leland Che (who looks after continuity at LucasFilm) who played a quiz of "Who is and isn't dead", showing various characters from RotJ and asking the audience of they died in the movie or EU.  When Boba Fett came up he was stated as someone who was brought back, but Leland mentioned that while he survived in the EU, in George Lucas' mind Boba Fett was always dead after the Sarlacc.

In other news, it was announced at Kathleen Kennedy's panel at CE II (which I missed) that John Williams will be coming back to score the music for the next 3 films. :D

So Disney have announced the release date for the movie: 18th December 2015.

http://starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-vii-to-open-december-18-2015.html

Can't imagine J.J. Abrams is to pleased, considering he said he was happy to push the release date back as long as it was in May.

Also announced a couple of weeks back are some of the crew that will be making the movie:
