Glad to report that Star Wars: Episode 7 is moving along and WILL be in theatres late next year. My son will be two. That's plenty old enough to be dragged into line with Dad! From The Week, details include (my comments in CAPS):
v Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher will appear, along with several other actors from the original Star Wars (MARK HAMILL WAS AVAILABLE?)
v Episode VII will star John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, and more (WHO?)
v Kathleen Kennedy is producing, and J.J. Abrams is writing and directing (YEAH!)
v George Lucas will serve as "creative consultant" (BOO!)
v The story will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi — and will be totally original (WHO CARES??? JUST BE BETTER THAN THE PREQUELS!)
Hooray, nerds! More details in link...
