Star Wars and Disney Raise the Bar

Skeptics have one less thing to be worried about, Disney has added J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasden to the cast to work on the new Star Wars film. Such prestigious names indicate that Disney and Star Wars have raised the bar and are aiming for the stars. Star Wars: Episode VII is in such capable hands that success for this film has a much greater chance than when it did previously

Micheal Arndt is a strong writer in his own time, he even has an Oscar statue. He was recently removed from working on the new Star Wars film but Lawrence Kasdan and J. J. Abrams together is nothing less than a dream team.J.J. Abrams wrote for TV shows Fringe and Lost. As such he is also Emmy-nominated and blessed the reboot of Star Trek with his talent as well as Super 8.

Lawrence Kasdan is known for co-writing the screenplays for Raiders of the Lost Ark and of course, The Empire Strikes Back. Both films many agree to be the best in each saga. Without George Lucas in the picture Kasdan has fewer restrictions which means more creative freedom. Kasdan and Abrams together means you’ve got two extremely qualified individuals ready to resurrect the Star Wars name to its former glory.

Disney is making a bold move here, it goes without saying that Star Wars has dedicated fans and a brutal amount of them, but to venture into a new trilogy (maybe more in time) means possibly upsetting those fans and ruining a name they hold close to their hearts.

Disney isn’t going half-halfheartedly into this project, J.J. Abrams directing and Lawrence Kasdan writing prove that. Those involved are also happy about the two names coming together. “I am very excited about the story we have in place and thrilled to have Larry and J.J. working on the script,” says Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm President. “There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a “Star Wars” story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen. J.J. of course is an incredible storyteller in his own right.”

With writing and directing taken care of what’s in store for the main cast? It is still too early to say for sure but it goes without saying that every actor and their mother are trying to end up in this movie. Will Harrison Ford make an appearance? When asked that question on Jay Leno, Harris stayed silent and refused to give a verbal answer. In terms of where filming will take place exterior locations are still being scouted but most of the shots will likely take place in London’s Pinewood Studios.

Disney is committed to raising the bar and turning this new Star Wars film into the next big hit. Do you think J.J Abrams and Lawrence Kasden have the necessary skill and synchronicity to succeed with the new Star Wars: Episode VII movie?

    This is good news. The Arndt script must have been flawed. This shows that JJ and K. Kennedy care enough to make a change now and get it right. You also have to wonder how much input George Lucas might be whispering in JJ’s ear.
