When it comes to Star Wars: Episode VII, even the tiniest nugget of new information is considered worthwhile. In that spirit, we now have confirmation of who will be handling all the costume designs for director J.J. Abrams’ eagerly awaited sequel. Michael Kaplan confirmed that he will be the costume designer on Star Wars: Episode VII, reuniting with Abrams after having worked together on Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. Kaplan’s impressive resume also includes the 1982 classic Blade Runner, Fight Club, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and 2011’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Hit the jump for more, including Kaplan’s statement on the matter.
“I am very excited to be working on Star Wars. I’m so looking forward to collaborating, once again, with JJ.”
It’s a small bit of news, I know, but it’s definitely exciting to know that in the very near future, Abrams and Kaplan will be working together to create character designs for a brand new Star Wars film. Elsewhere on the confirmed production side of Episode VII, Michael Arndt is writing the screenplay and Kathleen Kennedy is producing alongside Abrams and his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk.
