^ Indeed.

Part 4 of the GL/KK interview, from clubjade. As they say, there's not much information on the ST, though.

A return to Yavin IV with Luke and a new Jedi Academy? If so, that would be a pretty nice shout out to the EU.

It's interesting, but I wouldn't put too much faith into it right now. It would be pretty nice though. Cool

TFN is reporting that the Yavin rumor is a misprint.

I almost wonder if they're going to bump back the release date a year or two, because scheduling seems to be an issue with a few directors. I hope they don't pick a director for convenience.

They seem to just be having a hard time finding a director at all right now...

A lot of directors are probably scared out of their wits at having to deal with the Star Wars fandom. There's so much pressure (I mean, it's Star Wars: Episode VII, the film that was never supposed to happen), and we're not the most forgiving or rewarding of fanbases.

Abrams turned it down for those reasons (partially). He wasn't a prequel fan and didn't want to touch the franchise with a ten foot pole. We used to be a great fanbase, now Star Wars fans are renowned for being vicious and defensive of what we have. We don't mind new things as long as they don't damage old things, and now with the new direction they're taking this directors are looking at it like it'll give them cancer.

Plus, y' know, the whole Star Trek thing... Wink

And on the whole director thing, I called it on day one that it would be Jon Favreau, and since he's the only one I know of who admitted that he was actively seeking to do it, I still hold my prediction. Iron Man (at least the first one) had a lot of Star Wars flair to it, and Favreau's a Star Wars fan himself. If he gets it, I'm confident SWVII would be in good hands. Smile

Yeah, I think this is really the reason. Same with Joss Whedon and Marvel, they're both too busy with their own franchises.

But Iron Man 2 was so god-awful....

I liked Iron Man 2... :p

Plus, most of the flaws are due to Marvel, not Favreau. I think that's one of the reasons he stepped down for Iron Man 3.

Source? if Marvel was such a problem, why were Thor, Captain America, and Avengers all so excellent?

EDIT: I liked Iron Man 2 as well. It's just my least favourite of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
