The announcements about Star Wars: Episode VII were made by Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn during a panel at Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television in Los Angeles on April 2. He also acknowledged that there had been problems with the script, but hes confident in the version director J.J. Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan have worked on, which is based on a previous draft written by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt.
Its all about the screenplay, Horn said. It has to be screenplay, screenplay, screenplay.

Top 10 Things Star Wars Ep. 4-6 Did Wrong
Star Wars 1, 2, and 3 were so bad they actually ruined the sci fi genre in general.
But then, I still pine for Have Gun, Will Travel.
HOW old-fashioned am I?
I disliked the prequels for the fact that they lacked an antihero. The good vs evil was extremely one dimensional. At least the unedited 4-6 had Han Solo, who yes, did plenty of unsavory stuff, but hey, even he and his scoundrel buddy Lando figured out how messed up The Empire was, he even tried to be a big brother to Luke.
Oh well, hopefully Disney knows some decent storytelling.
Star Wars Episode 7: due to a rip in the space time continuum, Episodes 1-3 never happened.
#9 - Not enough female Characters
Stop the Video right there. Let me guess, "too many white heroes" is #1
The lens flare is strong with this one.
TWERKING JAR JAR
Give him a bit of break. He’s a UKer.
Episode 1 “The Phantom Menace” was particularly dreadful. The first time I saw it the entire row in front of me got up after 20 minutes and walked out. It was one of the scariest flights I’ve ever been on!
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Return To Accurate Film Franchise Numbering
I remember standing in the rain for two hours to see The very first Star Wars. I remember the audience actively cheering the heroics of Luke and Han and “Booing” Darth Vader. And the applause at the end was something I had not heard in a movie Theater since my childhood.
The next two were good too, but did not have the impact of the First one, which came at the end of a Hollywood era of negativity and ambivalence about good vs. evil (Midnight Cowboy, MASH, Etc)
By the time Episode One was in production, Star Wars had become a franchise, a product producer, an action-figure generator and a cliche. I went to the theater to see Episode One and was bored and disgusted beyond words.
I didn’t even bother with the next two, except as late nite TV filler fare.
Oddly enough, I feel the same about Disney, which means the suckiness of VII will be exponential. }:-O
Just my humble opinion, but my Sci-Fi movie fan creds go all the way back to “Forbidden Planet”, which also used Disney Effects and Live Action and was a WONDERFUL Picture! :-)
Star Wars-Taking the fight to global warming!!
Luke carefully uses the force to combat cow farts, carbon vapor and receives a hefty award of carbon credits upon successful completion of his journey.
The ghosts of Anakin, Yoda and Obiwan were there at the end of episode 6 so I expect at least the ghost of Anakin-Hayden Christensen to haunt us some more.
I saw the first ever showing in Indianapolis w some friends. We’d seen a few commercials and just went out of boredom more than anything. The theatre was a third full, maybe. The opening segment, the music and scroll, was pretty cool until .... the empire’s star cruiser. WOW!!
