STAR WARS EPISODE VII IN 2015!
Since I began this blog, I’ve tried to stay away from general news stories. My reason is simple. I go to other sites that report the news a lot better than I can. So I don’t report the news but I sure as hell react to it. Yesterday was one of the biggest game changing days in movie history. Disney purchased LucasFilm and immediately announced a new Star Wars movie we all thought we would never see.
This is a single announcement that will fuel internet speculation for years. Disney is poised to absolutely dominate 2015 with The Avengers 2 & a brand new Star Wars adventure!
… I’m still trying to grasp the reality that Star Wars Episode VII is happening.
3 BURNING QUESTIONS
- What will the new Star Wars movie be about?
- Who will write and who will direct?
- How will George Lucas be involved?
2 questions that, once answered, will be analyzed and debated non stop around the world. I’m a huge fan of the original trilogy and 2 of the 3 prequels. Having said that, I never really dug into the novels or details of George’s vision for the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy.
Here are my theories on Star Wars VII Day 1:
- Question 1: Based on George’s vision and not the novels.
- Question 2: Steven Spielberg / Guillermo Del Toro
- Question 3: He’s already stated that he will consult
WHAT WILL STAR WARS 7 BE ABOUT?
Just what did George Lucas have planned for Episode VII? Will Disney honor that vision? So over the last day, I’ve been searching online for answers. I certainly can’t speculate but there are plenty of experts out there who can. So I thought I’d pass along some of the most informative and FUN pages I could find:
