JJ Abrams says the script for “Star Wars: Episode 7” is done finally and they’re gonna go full steam ahead which I think he’s saying they’re gonna start filming soon. He’s also not gonna film the new Star Wars in IMAX as he claims that they are loud cameras and they are not right to do intimate scenes with which is kind of funny ’cause JJ used to be obsessed with IMAX but he doesn’t like IMAX anymore?
Anyway, I’m getting pretty skeptical of “Star Wars 7” after seeing “Star Trek Into Darkness”. Now that JJ has jumped aboard to write the script himself after the previous writer left, I don’t know how good the script is gonna be. The script to “Star Trek Into Darkness” was an absolute disaster so hopefully “Star Wars 7” won’t be the same. Since Lawrence Kasdan helped JJ with the script… maybe that’ll help make the script for “Star Wars 7” better but I don’t know. JJ maybe an okay film maker but his writing has problems. Hopefully, him and Kasdan will do Star Wars justice.
Yes, “Episode 7” will be full of CGI and lens flare indeed but I hope it’s a good story. Even though the script is done you can see that JJ is still being secretive on the plot. Is this movie a return for all the original Star Wars gang? Like everyone else, I’m expecting that too after JJ confirmed R2 the droid will be in it. Han, Leia, Luke, Lando, Chewbacca, etc. They’ll all come back.
Hopefully they leave the Ewoks out of it, though. I have a feeling “Episode VII” will leave right off from “Return of the Jedi”. Could “Episode VII” start off on Endor where “Jedi” left off?
I’m more interested on who the new villain is gonna be. Shouldn’t be Vader. Should be somebody new. A return of Master Palpatine is still possible, though. He could have survived that fall after Vader threw him off at the end of “Jedi”. I’m hoping “Episode 7” is gonna be good.
