I hope you had a happy Star Wars Day. This multi-billion dollar franchise that has defined generations never really gets the attention it deserves, but thankfully, “May the 4th” sounds like “May the Force”, and the rest is history. Before 2012, this “holiday” could only look back at the main films, but now it can look forward as the Star Wars sequels are underway. Although the main cast was announced last Friday, Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan did have a brief message for the fans. Kasdan mentions that they’re still working on the script (don’t freak out; these are probably the kind of tweaks that happen for most major productions), and Abrams adds, “as casting announcements continue…” so it looks like we weren’t done with the casting news on this movie after all. Excuse me while I cut off my head with a lightsaber.
