Hot Star Wars Episode VII Rumors

The Star Wars Episode VII rumor mill is flying faster than the Millenium Falcon on the Kessel Run (less than 12 parsecs). Vulture has loads of exclusive info that Jedi knights, Sith lords, and scoundrels alike will want to read. Here are the highlights.

  • The studio wants Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa Solo to be in the film.
  • Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) has written a treatment for the movie.
  • The treatment has been sent to Brad Bird, JJ Abrams, and Steven Spielberg for directing consideration.

Out of these rumors, I’m most intrigued by Brad Bird being considered for the movie’s director. I absolutely loved The Iron Giant and The Incredibles. While I didn’t see it, I’ve heard good things about his job on Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. That said, I’m sure loads of sci-fi fanboys are psyched about the possibility of JJ Abrams directing the movie. That would just be too weird for me. My head won’t accept the new Star Wars and Star Trek movies being directed by the same guy. That’s too much nerd power for one man to have.

Naturally, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the latest Star Wars Episode VII rumors. Leave a comment and share your feelings.

      1. I’m wondering if he can do a crossover? Then again, there’s hardly any way to do it without pissing alot of people off. My wife and I STILL fight about Freddy vs Jason.

        Then again, you could just have the landing party get beamed onto Tatooine or Naboo or even Dantooine and be a cheap crossover.

        Now that I REALLY think about it, some more time travel would have to be involved since Star Trek is in the future and Star Wars was a long, long time ago. A wormhole could take care of that.

      2. I still feel the same way. I’d like to keep the two franchises separate from a creative perspective.

        It really depends on the story they choose to do though. We know they won’t be doing Thrawn so maybe they’ll look at what BioWare did as inspiration or hell even making that into a movie since there is a strong female character in the first KoToR?

        I feel that Star Wars is fixing to become the new Pirates franchise once they find some lead they can drag out every 2 years. Pray to god it isn’t Shia LeBeouf.

      3. It’s not an Oh no moment. The best movies are ones that Lucas only wrote and someone directed. Also it makes sense this cant be episode 7 if it doesn’t follow the sky walker family.
