I'm on the fence about this. While Lucas was a creative dry well pretty much by the time he wrote TROTJ, and his successive films only got worse, maybe new writers can breathe some new life into the franchise. But then again, its Disney. My expectations aren't too high for it.

Don't think there will be a Princess Leia. Heard they are planning on many years later with all new
cast of characters.

Oh boy, more stilted acting in pseudo English accents.

I hope they will be better than episodes 1-3.

Interestingly, it was written for a 40 year old Luke Skywalker. I am assuming that the same actor will be the first choice. I think one reason that the last three tales were set aside is that the fx was not quite there yet. And Lucas had things he had to do. I'll be in line the day it opens to see it.

To me the best of the six was the last made, where Darth Vader was born, and that slow transition is so clear. With sufficent vision I expect it to be up to that standard rather than the 'lets sell some toys' feel of the last of the middle films.

Maybe Disney will pony up the money for decent script writers so the audience won't have to cringe every time a character talks between action scenes.

Episode 7 would come after Return Of The Jedi so that would mean later on. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia in their dotage. Maybe Harrison can do some action scenes ala Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

As a long time fan of the original Star Wars series, They should just do a lego Star wars trilogy in theaters! Would still be better then the cartoonish dreck they put out some years ago. Hayden Christiansen was the worst part of it, And in the last movie I could not stop laughing when he began to "turn" to the dark side. He was overacting so much i thought he might explode.

Battleship was a hokey Sci-Fi action popcorn flick at least and not part of a historical film legacy.
