    Eerie - that is exactly the first thought I had for a realistic and quality choice. Bird has history with Disney and did a very good job with Mission Impossible 4. And they can't go with a top director who is going to go "Look at me, I'm Quentin Tarantino damnit!" in the middle of the movie. If they are interested in a good movie, the top two things they need to do after getting a good director are to 1) get a one-page outline from Lucas and then cut him out of the project entirely and 2) go back to using models (like the original three movies) instead of CGI.

    I'll be cautiously optimistic, since the odds are very high that they can't do any worse than Lucas has. If I want to see a fat bearded old man named George who long ago created three works of genius and then sat on his rear for a long time before finally putting out a few follow-ups that range from garbage to mediocre, I can wait six years for the Song Of Ice And Fire / Game Of Thrones book.

    Makes sense really.
    The trend in our country has been for only one or a handful of hugely powerful entities to control most aspects of our lives.
    Banking, supermarkets, cellular service, radio/television, politics . . .

    I thought I read somewhere that Indiana Jones was part of the deal too. And like Star Wars, it's always been distributed by another company.

    Yup. Easy way to remember is how they always transition from the logo to a mountain or hill in the first shot of each movie.

    Could the Next STAR WARS Trilogy Feature Luke Skywalker in His 30s or 40s? | Collider

    The Wrap reported on Pollock’s comments about the planned sequel trilogy. While researching his unauthorized biography, Pollock was allowed to read Lucas’ outlines for all 12 of the features. He calls the upcoming films, which will be Episodes 7, 8 and 9, “the most exciting” in the series.

    “It was originally a 12-part saga. The three most exciting stories were 7, 8 and 9. They had propulsive action, really interesting new worlds, new characters. I remember thinking, ‘I want to see these 3 movies.’”

    Well now Pollock will get his chance, along with millions of fans around the world. Another thing the fans and Pollock have in common is the general distaste for the Star Wars prequels, as Pollock called them:

    “dreadful. I think they’re horrible. For me, the first one is the worst. Maybe the second prequel is better one. I didn’t like the third one at all. When he did the three prequels, he was in a Lucas vacuum. No one saw the scripts [in advance], they were dreadful screenplays. I thought they seemed dry. They were medieval in terms of court intrigue. And it was a weird way to start out the story.”

    Concerning the new sequel trilogy, which everyone hopes will be better than the prequels, Pollock revealed that they take place approximately 20 years after the events of the original trilogy. This places Luke Skywalker in his late 30s or early to mid-40s. Hamill, currently 61, will likely be replaced by a fresher face. According to Pollock, Lucas’ outlines will be an essential foundation of the upcoming trilogy:

    “Writers will absolutely take his outline. That’s in part what Disney bought.”

    Supporting an original story is a recent report from E! Online whose inside source claims that Episode 7 will not be pulled from any of the existing Star Wars novels or anything the fans have come across before.
