Considering Disney wants to crank out a new Star Wars movie every year, they’re not giving themselves a whole lot of time to fuck around, so it’s not surprising that there are already rumors about the characters and plot of Episode VII. Word has it that the protagonists will be Jaina and Jacen Solo, fraternal twin brother and sister, children of Han Solo and Princess Leia and raised by Luke Skywalker to be great Jedi.
George Takei announces he’s going to be playing a Jedi in Star Wars Episode VII. I wish this were real.
Just after midnight last night, George Takei made an announcement on Facebook that he was going to be playing a Jedi in Star Wars Episode VII. Sadly, this turned out to be a joke… a very, very cruel joke. I actually got really excited for a minute until I realized what day it was. Damn, Takei would make a cool Jedi.
In Star Wars Episode VII, Harrison Ford has already confirmed he’ll be back as Han Solo and now it looks like Carrie Fisher is game for returning to the Star Wars universe as Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.
Harrison Ford is getting pretty damn old, but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing to play Indiana Jones… why should it stop him from coming back as Han Solo in Star Wars Episode VII? Apparently, it’s not, as it looks like he will be returning to the Star Wars franchise.
With talk all the time these days about Star Wars Episode VII— directors, writers, possible story lines etc, one bad motherfucker wants it to be known that he’s down for doing more Star Wars. Samuel L. Jackson said recently in an interview that he would love for Mace Windu to return in some way in Star Wars VII.
Actor Robert Pattinson has been doing a lot of press lately because of the last Twilight movie, but very soon, Pattinson needs to think about what he wants to do post-Twilight. And part of that dream is to be in Star Wars VII, and he’ll do almost anything for any role at all.
It’s not surprising that someone would ask Spielberg if he’d be interested in directing the next Star Wars movie, but Tarantino? I’d love it, but hardcore Star Wars fans probably wouldn’t. And now it’s official that neither Spielberg nor Tarantino are interested, so you can cross those two names off the list. What about Kevin Smith?
It hasn’t been long since Disney announced their acquisition of Lucasfilm and their plans for a Star Wars 7, 8 and 9 and now it looks like Episode VII may have already found a writer, at least one of them. It looks like the first round of writing will be handled by Michael Arndt, the writer of Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine.
