    Flirting with idea =/= finished texts and scripts.

    If he had it all finished and written by 80s as you said, I wonder why we have documentaries of him writing scripts for prequel trilogy.

    I have been flirting with idea of writing books and also have quite solid ideas for each of them! Doesn't make them be there though. :|

    Lawrence Kasdan as writer and J.J Abrams as director - it actual looks really promising.

    I agree that the Ewoks seem rather silly when watched today. I personally love them, but I'm biased since I watched them as a little kid at the cinema when the movie came out. Still, Ewoks aren't nearly as silly as R2D2 being able to fly, the "we made this scene for a videogame"-part in the droid factory, and Palpatine's circus acrobatics while being rescued :P

    Have faith in Abrams (loved the new Star Trek).

    Don't have faith in the hardcore Star Wars fans giving him a chance to try anything new with the series or anything of the sort. Those fans can be freaking INSANE if you tamper with things even in the slightest bit (seriously, complaining about that they even re-released the first three movies in 3D? Not about the execution or anything like that, but that they even CONSIDERED it? No wonder Lucas got fed up).
    I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space, with the tuning fork, does a raw blink on Hari-Kari rock! I need scissors! 61!

    I've been more worried about the script than who was going to direct it, if they don't use any of the EU they better come up with something real fucking mind blowing script.

    It's not that he released/will release the 3D editions of the movies. It's that he releases new editions of those movies pretty much every year with slightest of changes (Usually for the worse. Who really wanted Darth Vader yell "Nooooooo!" in Return of the Jedi too?) while stubbornly refusing to release quality versions of the original theatrical release of the movies fitted to DVD/Blu Ray.

    I love the way certain people started flinging 'dude bro' accusations around - they clearly have no idea how good J.J. Abrams is when allowed off the leash. The Star Trek reinvigoration is exactly what the series needed, because it was boring and flagging hard. Also consider how many million miles better Mission Impossible 3 was over 2, especially given that it was Abrams' first actual film, rather than TV show.

    Aside from that, I see Kathleen Kennedy attributed as Producer on this film; potential for god tier has been achieved. Now let's just hope the script is compelling enough.

    Yeah, it'll probably be better than I-III, but not as classic IV-VI because of nostalgia. I'm predicting it'll hit the middle ground for the fanbase, because frankly, you have to really try to have a worse script than I-III.

    Hopefully they get as far away as the last 3 movies made as possible
    when its all about green screen and cg effects with 0 storyline the movie deserves to burn in hell
    or just give it to Michael bay or whoever made the Titanic movie battleship
    If everything I do is wrong then by god ill do it right

    tbh as long as George Lucas stays the fuck out of it, I think it could be okay
    Reading the A song of Ice and Fire series is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere and shoots the puppy, then punches you in the face

    I really don't think his style is the right fit for Star Wars. While his new Star Trek was a fun action movie I don't think it was faithful to the spirit of the original universe and I'm worried that he will give Star Wars the same treatment. No shaky cam action scenes for Star Wars please.

    Yeah, last time I watched Return of the Jedi I was like "wait a minute . . . this is just stupid."

    I mean, most of the movie is great, but Ewoks are almost as bad as Jar Jar. Almost. But I watched the movies as a kid first, so the movies were much more awesome from that perspective.

    I loved Phantom Menace, but I was 12 when it came out so . . . Watched it again about a year ago and thought, again, "this is just stupid."

    I'm still blown away that they are even making sequels to the original. It's not something I thought I would ever see. Lucas seemed pretty happy with his lot in life and there was hardly a whisper of him selling or making these films. I'm not sure there is a perfect director as they all seem to have their positives and negatives. I'm just glad it didn't go to a really shitty director like say M. Night Shamalayn (spelling?).

    Kasdan is the producer, Michael Arndt(little miss sunshine, toy story 3) is the writer

    I dont really have the hate alot of people have for the prequels, apart from wishing anakin would stop being so annoying, and that jar jar would accidentally sit on a activated lightsabre.

    But I think more star wars films is pushing it too far. We have a story, it was good for the most part, but it ended.

    anything more just screams that there is a lack of originality and they want to milk the IP, and that generally ruins it. I sense a failure on Hobbit type proportions in the making.
    No game will ever kill wow. Though Blizard themselves are making a pretty damm good attempt lately.

    Would have loved that as well, but JJ is alright i guess

    The Hobbit is a great movie, it may not be the book but a great movie nonetheless

    As long as George Lucas has no input it will be miles better than the latest installments.

    Wow this guy has it rough.

    Anyways not sure how I feel about this. We have a die hard trekkie making a Star Wars movie. I worry it may be tainted by his fanboy bias.
