STARWARS VII rumors part I
STARWARS VII Rumors part I
As you might know on October 30, 2012, it was announced that the The Walt Disney Company will acquire Lucasfilm for US$4.05 billion, half in cash and half in shares of Disney. Lucasfilm would become a unit of Disney, like Marvel Entertainment and Pixar.
This also means that a confirmed Star Wars Episode VII has been made public and scheduled to be released in 2015.
No words on confirmed actors, story or director.
How ever the story will be a newly written one and not based on any of the written books such as the Timothy Zahn‘s 1991 novel Heir to the Empire, the first installment in Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy.
Toy Story 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt is currently working on the screen play.
Actors such as Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford have confirmed that they are interested in doing a reprise thier roles. So in that aspect we will probably see old characters EP IV-VI and new ones appear in the new Movies.
I will follow up STARWARS VII rumors with new posts.
