Those of you fretting about the possibility that Star Wars Episode VII would be delayed as a result of Harrison Ford's recent injury can sleep a little easier tonight as The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that filming will resume later this month. It was reported a little while ago that they would be taking a short break to compensate for the lack of Han Solo - who apparently plays a major role in the movie - but the hiatus has lasted for only two weeks and Disney and Lucasfilm are still gearing up for a December 18th, 2015 release. Ford is now said to be in good health after surgery, and he will likely return to the UK to resume shooting soon (though sources could not confirm this). Star Wars Episode VII also stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker, as well as series newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.

Everyone's so cynical these days. You keep convincing yourself the movie is going to be bad when all we know about it so far is that it's being made, and you'll walk into the movie already having decided it's bad. It could be the best Star Wars ever (who knows?) and you'll hate it because you've decided over a year before it's release that it's bad.

It's just like how all a movie needs these days to be labeled a masterpiece is "Marvel Studios" above the title. Everyone decides the movie is great before it's even out, and that means everyone already has it in their head that it's a great movie going in, and then are blind to any real issues. Like Guardians of the Galaxy. That movie is just awful. It'd be the laughing stock of comic movies if it didn't have the benefit of having the Marvel Studios bias protecting it from criticism. But everyone walked in having decided it was perfection, just like I'm already seeing comments on this site about how great Avengers 2 is even though we haven't even seen a trailer yet, and even if Avengers 2 sucks it'll be labeled a masterpiece.

Will Star Wars 7 be bad? Who knows. We won't know until it's out and we can watch it for ourselves. But already writing it off while it's still in production is a sign that a lot of people are unable to have fun anymore, because with the internet existing, everyone thinks they are a critic and thinks they are the be all, end all of opinions.

Wait until you see it before you pass judgement. Deciding a movie is great or bad before it's even out is just sad.

This is a summer movie taking place in December, that ALONE means this movie is gonna make it's cash.


Now that most (or pretty much all) of the EU isn't really a factor, I'm interested to know what direction they're going to take with the characters both old and new.

Is John Boyega a stormtrooper? Is Dohmnall Gleeson a traveler who also happens to be Luke's son? Does Daisy Ridley play Jaina Solo or a completely different character? Is Max Von Sydow a Vill- Okay different question...Is Max Von Sydow playing an Imperial villain or perhaps a new enemy? Is Oscar Isaac the new Han Solo? Are we going to see Andy Serkis's uncomputerized acting chops?

Is Luke missing? Does Han have the Millennium Falcon? Did Leia become a Jedi or did she go over more to politicians? Am I asking too many questions before the movie comes out?


None of these questions will be answered for another 492 days (or less considering how much the trailer shows).

@TalkinSoftball

I see where you are coming from with thinking the movie will disappoint. Abrams has me also feeling skeptical. However, I feel that using a screenplay by Kasdan will make a huge difference. It is similar to how things were when Lucas was in charge. When he had Kasdan on writing duties on, Episodes 4 and 5 as well as on Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom the movies came out awesome. It was when Lucas took more control, Episodes 1,2,3 and 6 and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is when the movies turned to shit.

I am hopeful that having Kasdan associated with the upcoming Episode 7 will get us a quality chapter in the Star Wars saga and prevent Abrams from screwing up the franchise beyond what Lucas did.

Chewie left a wrench on the ground and Han tripped over it.

@l0rdleg0las, The Empire Strikes Back was successful because of Irvin Kirschner directing, not Kasdan's writing.
