Welp, apparently Disney and Lucasfilm are in a big rush for “Star Wars 7” as they promised long ago. They confirmed a release date for Dec. 18th, 2015, and if you think about it… that’s not so far up ahead. Do you think JJ can make a good Star Wars movie in a year??? Read the press release, here.
The title and synopsis is still not yet known but we’ll know soon enough. Now that they have a director, writers, composer (John Williams), and a release date… they should start casting soon. So we will soon know whether or not Harrison, Mark and Carrie are returning. I think there’s a 100% chance of them returning. They claim they haven’t been signed yet but I think it’s a lie so they won’t reveal too many surprises. I think the original trio signed as soon as Lucas sold Lucas film to Disney.
What will the next movie be like? It’s gonna be interesting to find out who the main villain will be. Hopefully, they won’t bring Darth Vader back. We need a new and original villain. I’m sure C3P0 and R2D2 will return. Chewbacca will come back as well… maybe Lando? I hope Han Solo will reunite with his Millennium Falcon ’cause that would be pretty badass! I’m sure we’ll get lightsaber fights, spaceship battles and the usual family/friendly stuff for the kids.
I hope JJ will do a good job and don’t mess it up. One thing to keep in mind, there’s going to be lens flare all over the film, though. You know how JJ is obsessed with that.
