Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) has had about a year to work on screenwriting duties for Star Wars: Episode VII, but now director-producer J.J. Abrams will take over, along with longtime writer and current consultant, Lawrence Kasdan.  As the duo refines the script in advance of the film’s planned start date of spring 2014, work continues in the location scouting, production design, casting, and costume design departments.

Hit the jump for more details in the press release.

MASTER FILMMAKING TEAM ANNOUNCED FOR STAR WARS: EPISODE VII

As Episode VII continues pre-production, Lawrence Kasdan and director J.J. Abrams have assumed screenwriting duties for the film. Kasdan, who has been serving as a consultant on the film, is a veteran of several classic Lucasfilm productions, writing the screenplay for Raiders of the Lost Ark and serving as co-screenwriter for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Acclaimed director and screenwriter Abrams’ credits include Super 8Mission: Impossible IIIFringe, and Lost.

“I am very excited about the story we have in place and thrilled to have Larry and J.J. working on the script,” states Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a Star Wars story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen. J.J. of course is an incredible storyteller in his own right. Michael Arndt has done a terrific job bringing us to this point and we have an amazing filmmaking and design team in place already prepping for production.”

Location scouting, production design, casting, and costume design are already underway on Episode VII. A team of gifted artists are working to bring the latest installment of the Star Wars saga, including director of photography Dan Mindel (Mission: Impossible IIIStar TrekStar Trek Into Darkness), production designers Rick Carter (LincolnAvatarForrest Gump) and Darren Gilford (OblivionTRON: Legacy), costume designer Michael Kaplan (Star Trek Into DarknessMission: Impossible – Ghost ProtocolFight Club),special effects supervisor Chris Corbould (Skyfall,The Dark Knight RisesInception), sound designer Ben Burtt (LincolnWall-EStar Wars: Episodes I-VI), re-recording mixer Gary Rydstrom (Jurassic ParkSaving Private RyanToy StoryMission: Impossible -Ghost Protocol), supervising sound editor Matthew Wood (Star Trek Into DarknessThe MasterThere Will Be Blood) of Skywalker Sound, and visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett (Star Trek Into DarknessPirates of the Caribbean: At World’s EndStar Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith) of Industrial Light & Magic. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, with Tommy Harper (Mission: Impossible – Ghost ProtocolJack RyanStar Trek Into Darkness) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin,War of the Worlds) serving as executive producers. John Williams is returning to score Star Wars: Episode VII.

Shooting is scheduled to begin Spring 2014 at Pinewood Studios for an expected 2015 release.

    • Al

      uh oh.

      • toal

        uh oh is right, this movie is cursed and fucked up

    • Lindelof All Time Worst Writer

      You’re missing the most important thing about this. F-CKING DAMON LINDELOF may be called upon by JJ to touch up the screenplay. NO MORE DAMON LINDELOF EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • cassa

        Damon lindelof and jj abrams are both hack, losers, dreck and abysmal abominations!

      • nae

        Agreed, they should be sacked from their joke of jobs.

    • lisa

      those are all crap, jj is no good at writing or directing, this is abysmal news.

      • cassa

        agreed.

    • Nemesis11

      hehe. but wait .. what’s wrong with MI 3? It is fantastically written movie (for me best of the MI series) and it has Phillip seymour hoffman in it.

      “You have a wife…girlfriend? I’m gonna find her, whoever she is.I’m gonna hurt her. I’m gonna make her bleed, and cry, and call out your name. And then I’m gonna find you,and kill you right in front of her.”

      So dont worry folks episode 7 is going to kick ass.

      • non de plum

        Terrible, absolutely terrible line and dialogue.

        jj is full of delusional crap, this is a disaster.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        are you kidding me, Star Wars is littered with horrible dialogue.

        Luke: But I was going into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters!

        Owen: You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done…

        Don’t even get me started on the misuse of the term “Parsec”, which is a unit of length/distance not time…

        Jesus, the actors thought the dialogue was so bad in A New Hope, that they would even say: “You can type this shit, but you can’t say it.” <—- That is literally in every making-of/behind the scenes of Star Wars ever made.

        Good actors can make shit dialogue work.

        And I agree that M:I3 is one of the better flicks in the series. Not the best, but way better than that thing John Woo made, and more exciting than the original – though the original had more intrigue, IMO.

    • laughy taffy

      what a bunch of crappy films, this movie is in serious trouble.

    • Cassa

      wow, jj has written a bunch of shit. It was time to worry about this movie when disney bought star wars, then it was time to worry even more when jj was chosen to direct, now it is time to WORRY ALL THE TIME, THIS MOVIE WILL BE A MESS.

      • levin

        JJ’s movies are badly written and badly directed, and all his movies are forgettable.

        This is embarrassing for Star Wars.

      • jjante

        It is worst than embarrassing for star wars.

    • toal

      man, those are some of the shittiest movies ever. This movie is in serious trouble. Damn, disney fucked up.

    • des

      Damn, some awful shitty movies there.

  • bork1138

  • NICK НΛRT

    i’m not worried about him becoming the lead screenwriter but does that mean that arndt only gets story credit? i always thought he wrote great dialogue

    • http://thenonessentials.blogspot.com/ Sean Chandler

      It depends on how much of his work ends up in the shooting script.

    • The_Smirking_Revenge

      If Arndt wrote a draft and elements from said draft remain, then he gets writing credit. Lucas will get some story credit, most-likely.

    The production talent list looks more like a Spielberg film than a Abrams film. I like where this is going

  • Al

    Arndt has the best batting average out of Abrams and Kasdan. Granted, he has less to his name. But two great (or at least broadly appealing) works for completely different demographics? In terms of critically, box office, and emotionally, Arndt should be the go to in Hollywood. It was great to hear he was on board. Now JJ ‘Pointless Khan twist” Abrams gets to write it? Yikes.

    Sure, with Into Darkness they wanted to put us in the crews positions and since they didn’t know it was Khan, neither would we. But, like, from a character perspective there should be no reason for Khan or the federation to lie, because all that did was make the crew go from “We’ve never heard of this guys before” to “Oh, that was a fake name? So he’s really….this other guy we’ve never heard of before.”

    Stupid stupid stupid. Bring back Arndt before its too late.

    • Michael Arndt

      I didn’t watch Star Trek Into Darkness. Thanks, Al. Now, I guess I don’t have to watch it.

      • Al

        I hope this is a joke. How this could come as surprise to anyone who reads these sites, especially when leading up to the film multiple cast and crew members said “its Khan”, is beyond me.

      • Common sense says jj is stupid

        Why would you go see a shitty film like that anyway??! It is jj abrams crap. Both of the Star Trek remakes by jj are abysmal dreck and abominations!

        You see that a lot on here. There are entire conversations where you can tell it’s one person talking to themselves. Mildly disturbing if you ask me, but here I am arguing with the multiple personalities of one lowly commentator.

      • Al

        Your argument is very compelling and has swayed me. I can now die in peace, as a half-retarded j.j. masturbating blind-eye turner.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        Your ignorance is astounding… Obvious lack of taste aside, your response doesn’t even make sense. I wasn’t posing an argument, but simply informing you of my distaste with your original comment.

        You can die as you will, but it won’t change the fact that your initial post was the exact kind of douchey response most expect to find on site like these. I’d love to hear your ideas, but you don’t have any… No, the truth is, you have zero creativity and lack vision, so of course it bothers you when other people succeed in areas you can only fantasize about… and, because you mentioned it, probably while you masturbate with your own tears while reading that Ben Affleck is the new Batman.

        You, sir, are what makes the internet so much fun.

      • Nathan

        But jj is stupid and so are his pointless plot twists and his pathetic mystery boxes. He crapped on star trek with his duller than dish water remakes.

      • Sweet Pea

        Star Trek Into Darkness was the best Star Trek film ever, so he can’t be that bad…

      • Nathan

        please, don’t insult Star Trek by rewarding a hack remake like the one you mentioned. There are only 10 official star trek films, and of the ten ‘Star Trek – First Contact’ is the best.

        jj’s remakes – they are failures.

      • Sweet Pea

        Were JJ’s Star Trek films bootlegs?? I didn’t realise, I hope Jean Luc Picard sues him for that the bastard…

        get off the meth, you make no sense, what are these remakes you speak of?

        10 trek movies, no one counts the remakes.

    Kasdan wrote some good things, but he hasn’t gotten above a 7 on Rotten Tomatoes since 1985. That’s worrisome.

    • sasha bri

      Silverado (1985) was a crap film, Kasdan is not always good. Besides Empire Strikes Back is a bore fest for most of the movie in between the beginning and the end.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        No one is good all the time. Hell, even Scorsese has made some bad movies.

        The Empire Strikes Back is considered the best film in the series, as well as one of the greatest sequels of all time, by most.

        so? jj is still involved, that is an automatic fail! jj should not be involved with writing or directing. JJ should stay away from star wars, example, the crap he did with the star trek remakes.

        I LOVED the Star Trek films. Much better than that Deep Space Nine which I saw on TV a few times…

      • The Flobbit

        Not once – not ONCE – did I ever say Abrams was a bad director. Go on, read these forums where you insult every other “internet commentator” and see where I called Abrams a “bad writer/director.”

        And you’re ignoring the fact that Abrams has written a lot of stinkers:
        Taking Care of Business (Consensus: negative): “Bankrupt of laughter.”
        Regarding Henry (Consensus: mixed): Roger Ebert: “Cheap sentiment with a cheap laugh – and cheap product placement.”
        Forever Young (Consensus: mixed): LA Times: “Fashioned from cliches and recycled goods.”
        Gone Fishin’ (Consensus: negative): Leonard Maltin: “An annoyingly unfunny gambit…this film really smells”
        Armaggedon: (Consensus: negative): Roger Ebert’s Most Hated Films: “The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense and the human desire to be entertained.

        PRODUCED:
        The Pallbearer: Razzie winner, negative reviews.
        The Surburbans: Rotten Tomatoes 0%.

        JJ has only been getting big in the last 5 years or so, not counting LOST. All agree that JJ’s friend, Damon Lindelof ruined LOST and Prometheus, Cowboys and Aliens, and Star Trek 2, along with JJ’s OTHER friends Kurtzman and Orci.

      • The_Smirking_Revenge

        I’m sorry, but what exactly is your point? That Abrams films haven’t all been amazing? I’ll give you that. So what?

        If it’s that this will be bad because Abrams has written/made some duds, then I gotta say, your logic is flawed. I can’t think of a single filmmaker who’s never made a flop, or even a series of flops. By your logic, Steven Spielberg is a horrible filmmaker. After all, he is responsible for such greats as:

        1941
        The Lost World
        A.I.
        War of the Worlds
        Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
        Etc…

        I think you get my point.

        JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan taking a pass at the script isn’t the end of the fucking world. Abrams actually gives a shit about SW and I’m pretty sure he’s aware of the wrath he’d invoke from lovely interwebs personalities such as yourself, if he fucked it up. I agree that Lindelof should stay as far away from this as possible, but I’m willing to believe these people have some idea of what they’re doing, whereas you people do not.

        And now to crucify myself… But, hey, at least I’m being honest.

        JJ’s Star Trek ’09 was a much better film than half of the original flicks and leaps and bounds above any of the Next Generation flicks… One word – Insurrection. Trek fans of course love Trek, but still understand and accept the ST rule of evens… Meaning the even numbered sequels are widely considered the better films. Personally, I enjoy all of ‘em except Final Frontier and most of the TNG flicks (they were ok, but be serious, they’re in no way great films). In fact, the only one that stands out is First Contact.

        Abrams reinvigorated the franchise, made it fun again, added some action that was sorely lacking in the series, especially in later installments, and even came up with a simple, yet clever way to keep his ST from fucking with the OG timeline. And, not that it matters, but just to give some perspective, I wasn’t all that pleased with Into Darkness, but I’ll still take that over Insurrection any day of the week.

        I know what it is to be a fan. I grew up with Star Wars, it’s literally one of my favorite things period. I also remember the crushing feeling I had when I watched TPM the first time. I remember wanting to like it, I mean it was kinda Star Wars like – there were Jedi and lightsabers, weird alien species, etc… but something was obviously missing. The same thing occurred during viewings of both AOTC and ROTS. But I didn’t go around proclaiming the prequels were amazing works of cinema. I don’t hold them on high simply because they are technically Star Wars movies.

        My point is, as fans, we tend to be so precious about the movies we love, that some will defend even the worst ridiculous elements… Yes, there are actually websites and groups out there dedicated to Jar Jar. However, you’re never going to enjoy anything unless you learn to take a step back from it.

      • The Flobbit

        Film makers who have never made a flop:
        Steve McQueen
        Christopher Nolan
        Stanley Kubrick
        Billy Wilder
        Tomas Alfredson
        Danny Boyle (except for that ONE)
        Guillermo Del Toro
        Alfonso Cuaron
        Kevin Feige
        Neill Blomkamp

        Steven Spielberg’s AI was rated fresh on RT and critically acclaimed by Roger Ebert on his great movies list. War of the Worlds was ALSO critically acclaimed. The Lost World was a financial success, as was Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Which, by the way, was ALSO critically acclaimed, with certified fresh on RT.

        The big difference here is that Spielberg has been making films since the 70′s, and those movies are his ONLY flops, in a celebrated and multi-billion-dollar making career. The films listed by Abrams are literally ALL the films he made until Mission: Impossible. And all of them were flops.

        And please, please, PLEASE don’t get me started on STID, which is the worst film I have seen all year. And I’ve seen After Earth.


        I am not qualified to comment on Star Trek’s original films or TV series, as I have not seen any of them. I’m just not a Trek fan.

        I too, LOVE Star Wars. Probably as much as you. I’m holding back judgement on it until I see something. I just have a bad taste in my mouth after STID, and don’t want to see Abrams’s friends anywhere near this. Let me just say that there are 15 directors I would have cast over Abrams for SW:E7.

        Abrams reinvigorated the franchise, made it fun again, added some action that was sorely lacking in the series, especially in later installments, and even came up with a simple, yet clever way to keep his ST from fucking with the OG timeline. And, not that it matters, but just to give some perspective, I wasn’t all that pleased with Into Darkness, but I’ll still take that over Insurrection any day of the week.

        I know what it is to be a fan. I grew up with Star Wars, it’s literally one of my favorite things period. I also remember the crushing feeling I had when I watched TPM the first time. I remember wanting to like it, I mean it was kinda Star Wars like – there were Jedi and lightsabers, weird alien species, etc… but something was obviously missing. The same thing occurred during viewings of both AOTC and ROTS. But I didn’t go around proclaiming the prequels were amazing works of cinema. I don’t hold them on high simply because they are technically Star Wars movies.

        My point is, as fans, we tend to be so precious about the movies we love, that some will defend even the worst ridiculous elements… Yes, there are actually websites and groups out there dedicated to Jar Jar. However, you’re never going to enjoy anything unless you learn to take a step back from it.

    You idiots would bitch and complain no matter what was stated in this article.

    I bet a good percentage of you wanted Lucas directing the Prequels, then bitched about what he did with them. Then you all wanted someone who truly gave a shit about Star Wars to be at the helm of the new trilogy… They’ve done that and you’re all bitching. Why don’t you all wait for some evidence of the actual film before declaring, as one complete moron already did, that it’s somehow fucked or gonna suck.

    I’d just love to see your versions of this movie. I’m sure they’re magnificent.

    • The Flobbit

      Mine would be magnificent. It would start with your death by Sand people.

        It sounds terrible already, you’ve cast an unknown internet commentator just to be killed by sand people… How would you tie that in to the overall narrative? Your script ideas need a lot of work.

      • The Flobbit

      • Sweet Pea

      GEORGE LUCAS OR DISTRICT 9 DIRECTOR SHOULD DIRECT EPISODE 7, NOT THE PATHETIC AND DELUSSIONAL HACK JJ. JJ IS A LOSER, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

      YOU ARE PATHETIC IS YOU THINK JJ IS ANY GOOD.

      JJ IS NOT GOOD, HE IS THE ULTIMATE EXCREMENT. I WANT TO SHIT ON JJ, THAT IS HOW SHITTY JJ IS!

        This is where I call bullshit. If you actually made a fan film worth a shit, you’d have lead with the link.

        Nobody (ok, no actual fan of Star Wars) would want George Lucas to direct another Star Wars film… Like Ever. Not even Lucas wants to be that involved. He’s learned….I hope.

      THANK YOU.

  • Northern Star

    Before anyone starts going nuts at this news – too late already it would appear! – keep in mind that Michael Arndt was probably only signed up to work on the story, to convert George Lucas’ treatment(s) into concrete story outlines, he has evidently finished that obligation and is likely moving on to pastures new (no doubt being a very in-demand screenwriter), leaving Jar Jar and Larry to collaborate on the actual shooting script themselves… notice how Kathleen Kennedy only mentioned “story” in regards to Arndt’s involvement but said “script” with regards to Abrams’ and Kasdan’s.

    It’s now late October and if filming doesn’t begin until March or (at latest) April, they still have good time to get the script in shape if the story is already locked… have faith in the guy who wrote ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’…

    • 80sRobot

      Following along your thoughts: Why did Lucas want Arndt? Perhaps he liked Arndt’s work on Toy Story 3, but perhaps also he liked Little Miss Sunshine and Brave. This could be a telling clue — what do these two movies have in common? They feature female protagonists. This may tie in to rumors that the sequel trilogy will focus on a third generation Skywalker who is female. This could of course tie in with the revelation that Saoirse Ronan auditioned for a role, and was asked to play around with a light saber during her audition. (Arndt also has two sci-fi screenplays under his credit, writing Oblivion and the final Hunger Games movie to come — the Hunger Games series, of course, features a strong young female protagonist.)

      So imagine Brave meets Hunger Games starring someone like Saoirse Ronan (replace the bow-and-arrow with a light saber, essentially) — this maybe is what Lucas envisions as the main hero throughout the sequel trilogy.

      • no longer a star wars fan

        Why doesn’t Lucas just come back as director and have Kasdan do the writing?

        I really do not like jj involved AT ALL!

        It hurts that star wars is being treated like a play thing with the idiots at disney and the idiot Kathleen Kennedy and the idiot jj. It hurts so much, that you can count me out as a Star Wars fan anymore. This travesty of crap being done to Star wars has turned me off and I have stopped buying Star Wars merchandise. First thing I did was cancel my Star Wars Insider subscription, because I hate the idea of jj being mention in it and his disgusting picture in the magazine all the time. GO TO HELL JJ! DISNEY! So long Star Wars, it was fun while it lasted.

  • MITIOR

    I was kind of hoping Trisha Biggar will be back as costume designer,I don’t know what to think of the new guy/ But the Visual Effects supervisor seems like a great choice, he has THE RESUME ( skyfall, the dark night rises, Inception).

    • MITIOR

      Ok, I retract my words, Michael Kaplan was the costume designer in Blade Runner! he has my approval.

  • The Flobbit

    Agree with Larry Kasdan, why does Abrams have to stick his nose in there? The mystery box must NOT be brought to a galaxy far, far away.

    KEEP ABRAMS AWAY!

  • Ozweego

    If there is one definite truth that spans the entirety of this thing we call the interwebs it’s, “There’s no pleasing a Star Wars fan”.

    No matter who is in charge, who writes, who stars, or who delivers the donuts on set, there will never be a satisfied consensus of fans. Like the Star Wars universe its fanbase is as broad and vast. I say we let the powers that be deliver us the next installment in the franchise and judge it when complete. JJ may not have been the choice of many but there were far worse choices out there as well. He can deliver a blockbuster that rakes in profits and if you think Kennedy of Disney are worried about anything other then that, you are sadly detached from the spectacle that is Hollywood.

      Anyway, this is the direction this failure of an production is heading. With every new item of news, the outlook is more bleak and tarnished. JJ directing, no that will be crap. JJ writing………no…………that too will be CRAP!

      I was never invested in more Star Wars when disney bought it anyway. Just look at how badly they are messing up the Marvel movies. Disgusting.

      I would however, be interested if Lucas kept making Star Wars with Lucasfilm and 20th Century FOX.

        You are jj’s whore apparently, how much are you getting paid for being such a huge waste of space, you disgusting shit!

        There, I tried to use Mr.s Lucas as many times as you used director (oh wait, I used ‘Mr. Lucas’ now 8 times, because he is a director and writer and producer, whereas JJ is none of these. Because you do not know a good director if you saw one, you are too busy sucking away on jj’s rod and balls, you sick faggot! Is jj’s rod sweet enough for you faggot! Go away asswhore, keep you disgusting matter to your disgusting self.

    • shelley

      Seamus, you would have my support. I would give mr. lucas 50 billion to come back to star wars,

      stay away jj hack.

  • Leslie

    This news has made me even more NOT INTERESTED in this movie. I was already not interested when the dick JJ became director. I was hoping it was a hideous and cruel joke, but no, the ass got the job some how, well……everyone knows how……..you know………the certain group of people that rule the media………you know…………even if they get a flop after flop after flop………….they still get another movie role or directing gig…………you know…………..them jews, that’s who.

    • lisa87

      i stopped looking up the news on star wars after i saw the name jj abrams, i totally gave up hope for more star wars movies. he will kill and ruin star wars. i only came here to say if it was not official before (it was), it definitely is official now, star wars is officially fucked.

  • cassandra102

    the production of this unwanted film (unwanted because no one wants jj around this) is doomed. Good, I want this to fail and laugh at jj and disney.

    • darkwing duck fan

      I will be their laughing with you, laughing and throwing my feces at jj abrams and the people of walt disney, they should all be hung.

  • BATMAN / X-MEN CROSSOVER!

    Never did I think in my many years of being a Star Wars fan, that I would say that ‘STAR WARS IS DEAD TO ME NOW BECAUSE OF DISNEY’.

    Well guess what? ‘STAR WARS IS DEAD TO ME…..PFFFT……..STAR WARS IS DEAD OFFICIALLY!’

    ‘SCREW YOU JJ ABRAMS AND SCREW YOU DISNEY. MARVEL COMIC FILMS ARE FUCKED UP NOW AND NOW STAR WARS IS GOING TO BE FUCKED UP, ASSWIPES!’

    I AM SO GLAD 20TH CENTURY FOX IS MAKING THE ‘X-MEN’ FILMS. SIX ‘X-MEN’ FILMS AND THEY ARE ALL AWESOME AND A SEVENTH ONE IS COMING AND SOUNDS AND LOOKS AWESOME TOO. THE ‘X-MEN’ FILMS ARE THE BEST COMIC BOOK MOVIES AROUND, BESIDES BOTH TIM BURTON BATMAN FILMS, ‘BATMAN’ (1989), ‘BATMAN RETURNS’ (1992), ‘BATMAN – MASK OF THE PHANTASM’ (1993), ‘BATMAN & MR. FREEZE – SUBZERO’ (1998) AND ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ (1990), ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II – THE SECRET OF THE OOZE’ (1991), ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES III – TURTLES IN TIME’ (1993), AND ‘DICK TRACY’ (1990), AND ‘DARKMAN’ (1990), AND ‘THE SHADOW’ (1994) AND ‘MYSTERY MEN’ (1999), AND ‘MEN IN BLACK’ (1997).’

    ‘X-MEN’ (2000) – 9/10
    ‘X2 : X-MEN UNITED’ – 10/10
    ‘X3 : X-MEN – THE LAST STAND’ – 10/10
    ‘X-MEN ORIGINS : WOLVERINE’ – 9/10
    ‘X-MEN : FIRST CLASS’ – 8/10
    ‘THE WOLVERINE’ – 10/10
    ‘X-MEN : DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ – 10/10 – I AM ASSUMING, IT IS GOING TO BE SO AWESOME!

    I HOPE THERE WILL BE A ‘X4′ AND A ‘THE WOLVERINE 3′ AND MANY MORE ‘X-MEN’ FILMS! TOO BAD THEY NEVER DID MOVIES FOR ‘X-MEN : THE ANIMATED SERIES’ (1992-1997) (LIKE THE TWO AWESOME ANIMATED BATMAN FILMS ‘BATMAN – MASK OF THE PHANTASM’ AND ‘BATMAN & MR. FREEZE – SUBZERO’, MOVIES FROM ‘BATMAN – THE ANIMATED SERIES’), THOSE MOVIES WOULD HAVE BEEN EPIC, BEST ‘X-MEN’ ANIMATED SERIES, WITH THE BEST ANIMATION.

    OH WOOPS, OFF TOPIC, NOW BACK TO THE UNFORTUNATE TOPIC

    JJ ABRAMS IS AN ASSWIPE, DISNEY IS AN ASSWIPE AND STAR WARS IS DEAD WITH THESE SHITHEADS!

    • nathaniel

      since iron man 3, and now thor 2 (early screening), I agree. FOX has done a better job with the x-men films than disney has done with their marvel junk. star wars is next to be shitted on.

  • The_Smirking_Revenge

    I love that this…THIS is what has killed Star Wars for people…and not those atrocious prequels.

    If Jar Jar couldn’t kill the franchise, then neither can JJ. Pull your heads out of your ass and wait for the damn thing to come out before you go slitting your wrists over it.

    They haven’t even released an official synopsis, yet.

    if anything, fandom is fucked… It’s been hijacked by tasteless fickle crybabies, who flock to the interwebs in droves to bitch about things they haven’t seen yet.

    I puked when I saw this article….WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DISNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GET ANOTHER FUCKING DIRECTOR!

  • melbourne

    I sent a lengthy e-mail and hand written letters to both Disney and Lucasfilm, basic summarization was that I did not think they would screw up Star Wars this early after obtaining the rights after Lucas left. But they did, they have screwed up royally and it continues to get worse with every news item like this abysmal article.

  • NAMAA

    ‘Star Wars – Episode III : Revenge Of The Sith’ was an awesome way to end to Star Wars, bridging the prequel troilgy with the original trilogy.

    Return Of The Jedi DOES NOT NEED A SEQUEL, LET ALONE A SEQUEL BY JJ THE HACK ABRAMS! GO TO HELL!

    IF YOU KNOW WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU, YOU WOULD LEAVE STAR WARS ALONE DISNEY AND JJ!

    Why the hell would you cast JJ as director and writer???????????!!!!!! HE IS BAD AT BOTH!!!!!!!

    This does not bode well for Star Wars.

    Star Wars is one of the most famous series of movies, now with this JJ turd they will be some of the most reviled movies ever!

    disney, please get rid of the script, the writer now involved and the director.

    Just have Kasdan involved and bring back George Lucas, then i would be interested in this movie, because right now, I ain’t interested.

  • aNDROIDS 1

    meh, this news does not excite me at all. Makes things even more worse than before. Get a different director, have Lucas write it and maybe direct it.

    • The Rocketeer

      If George Lucas came back to direct and co write it with Kasdan, that would be super sweet! But it is not going to happen. 6 Star Wars movies is good enough for me, so I would not mind if this one went into development hell like it has already and never happened.

        Hey, I would rather see a sequel to ‘The Rocketeer’, than this so to be dreck.

      I have hurled many times because of Star Wars is about to be tarnished. Pretty soon I will not be looking up any Star Wars news, because of JJ and disney. I say pretty soon, because my subscription to Star Wars Insider and Star Wars – The Clone Wars Magazine will both be expiring soon, and I will not be renewing them because of the hack job jj and disney’s involvement in Star Wars.

    I’v always thought of JJ Abrams as kind of a lazy writer. He can’t seem to just come up with a concept and write it on his own. Super 8 was a step in the right direction. He needs to keep writing more of his own work; strengthen those writing muscles. Just come up with more original ideas.

    But with Kasdan by his side, I think this will be very good for the film.
