Star Wars Update

Since the announcement a few weeks ago about Disney acquiring the Star Wars franchise rumors have been flying about directors, cast, and scripts.  From Harrison Ford interested in returning to Darth Vader coming back.  There are rumors of an Avengers style trilogy with 2-3 additional movies in between.  Rumors that it is based of Timothy Zahn’s Trilogy or one written by Lucas some years back. Plus is it going to suck or is going to be bad ass!!!  My goal in this blog is to keep it simple so the everyday not-so-fanatic reader can keep up.  Let’s face it, who does not like Star Wars?

First topic is it going to suck.  Well let’s look at Disney.  Pixar, Pirates of the Caribbean and this huge Avengers saga  just off the top of my head.  They have some really great hits in that group alone not including the early animations of Walt Disney’s movies.  I doubt they would tarnish their reputation by putting out a bad Star Wars movie not to mention the potential gold mine if they are successful.

According to sources George Lucas will still be on board as a “creative consultant“.  Lawrence Kasdan (who wrote the screenplay for both “The Empire Strikes Back” and “The Return of the Jedi”)  has been confirmed as a writer, as well as Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams and Peter Mayhew expressing interest in the possibly reprising their roles depending on the script.

From the confirmed news so far, I’m willing to bet this is something Disney has been looking at for a while now and they are further ahead than we know of.  Don’t for get to check out my little cheat sheet below, you can find links to articles referencing the cast and crew.   I’ll catch you guys again soon with some plot rumors I have dug up.
