Star Wars: Ep. VII Set 30 Years After Return Of The Jedi


Director JJ Abrams has assumed the responsibility of directing the two recent Star Trek movies. As if that's not enough, Abrams now faces the immense challenge of filming the next addition to George Lucas' space saga, Star Wars.

The latest scoop on this particular front is that Star Wars: Episode VII is going to be set 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return Of The Jedi. The official word is that the camers are set to start rolling on May 17, this year, with December 18, 2015 being the projected release date for the flick. 

Disney owns the rights to the movies and have since revealed their intentions to make several stand-alone films, in addition to the seventh movie in the saga. 

Oh and if that's not enough to satisfy your lust for Jedi, lightsabers and space battles, there's Star Wars: Rebels - the TV show that's also on the horizon.

Positive note: there's only going up from where Star Wars currently is.

Taking about StarWars. You guys REALLY need to check out the reviews of all of the previous Star Wars by RedLetterMedia on YouTube. It'd damn good and fucking funny. Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfBhi6qqFLA

The Original Trilogy was your childhood, the Prequels were mine. They're both different, they both have good and bad aspects (may I just mention some of the laughable acting in 4,5,6-if you don't find some of the scenes ridiculous you're kidding yourself), but hating on the Prequels just because they were not what you wanted is a disservice to yourself. They are still fun movies, aren't they?

The reviews you guys recommended seem fun (only had time to watch about 15 minutes of the first part of Ep. 1 review) but they are made for the sake of comedy, ok? You can not compare a character that died in the first movie he was in with a character that was essential to three movies and maybe was even more popular than the main protagonist. Plus maybe ask somebody who has seen Ep. 1 more than 0,5 times. I grew up on Ep. 1 and I could write an essay on each of Phantom Menace's characters. They were deep too. Even though their characters and motivations weren't so clear as in the Original Trilogy, they could be observed or sensed very well.

No, they're not fun, they're extremely stupid. I'm not entertained by movies that seem written by a child. Please watch the RLM reviews in full, at least for the first movie and then tell me the characters were deep. I'm not trying to take a dump on your childhood memories, but the prequels are very badly made. They have tons of special effects and that's about it.
Vader [STAFF] Mar 19 2014, 05:16 am EDT
Tons. Heaps. Love 'em.
Doomsday. Mar 19 2014, 11:15 am EDT
I liked the prequels and loved the sequels!! There I said it you bhainchods!!! :D
