Maybe our expectations shouldn't be too high. The expectations for The Phantom Menace were astronomical, and look what happened.
the expectations for the movie are really big... i just don't want it to suck...
Here's the official statement: http://starwars.com/news/star-wars-is-being-kick-started-with-dynam...
A lot of people seem to be freaking out about him directing (bringing up Cloverfield). I'm pretty excited about it. It will be nice to have some new air and maybe change things up a bit. I read and interview and he said he was scared because he loved Star Wars so much growing up.
So the latest rumor is that JJ Abrams is directing Episode VII.
A group for Star Wars nerds? I'm at home.
Oddly enough, they have very poor incentives to make a good movie in the tradition of the original trilogy.
The reasonable successes that Star Wars has had since the original trilogy have all been in the novels, games, and the animated series. If they wanted a success, they could create a low budget production (similar to the animated series) with correspondingly low expectations.
Trying to hit the highs of the original trilogy would be almost impossible now even with a perfect team because they can't match the expectations lined up for them.
I'm really not sure how I feel about Disney making more Star War... At first I was freaking out, exclaiming that they should NOT under any circumstances make more movies. Though now that a few days have pasted I'm not quite freaking out as much, because hey, I should give them a chance at least. Who knows, maybe these new movies will be brilliant... we can only hope.
