Trading up Arndt for Kasdan and the director is fine by me.

I look forward to seeing their movie and later reading the comic based on Arndt's script.  :-*

Reading through the making of ROTJ I was amazed at how involved Kasdan was with the story as well as how much Lucas had shaped the prequels already back then.  I'm interested to see how much Sequel talk they may have talked about too...but I'm guessing they left that out of the book.

Honestly I just want to smash my head through a sheet of glass thinking about the fact that folks would have lined up like this to script the prequels for George too. Frank Darabont was supposed to ghost write at one point...why couldn't George have retired before 2012? (Oh yeah, it was 2012 that made it happen.)

Kind of amazing that we don't have a script but we're confident it'll be ready in 2015. Star Wars movies are supposed to take 3 years to make, period. Maybe I'm just too used to the Lucas house style of making the movie in the editing booth.

I think the script is probably much further along than we think, though the fact the article mentions filiming in Sping 2014; that's a little further out than I was thinking on the timetable they seem to be on. That being said, this movie has been in pre-production for over a year, closer to two.

No big loss really, at least he got the ball rolling. Kasdan has the pedigree that's for sure, I feel better as long as he continues to be an integral part.

Same here...  Kasdan is the most interesting name tagged to it I think...  Everyone else, meh.

His ego cannot be kept out...  Just be happy there is a new crew above him who hopefully get that his sound effects are ok to be cut from a film.

What? You didn't enjoy all the zany sound effects in Wall*E ?

Nice to see Matthew Wood resurfacing after being such a mainstay on the Clone Wars series. Glad he will be involved as well.

Here's hoping he can keep Ben Burtt in check.

Darabont's Kingdom of the Crystal Skull script is online... it's worth a read.  It's all of the good stuff and none of the crap that made it into the final piece.

Fairly major news:

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/11/05/more-star-wars-episode-vii-plot-and-character-details-open-casting-call-for-young-leads-upcoming/

Lots more to speculate on. This should erase some of the doubts on the film's schedule - these casting sessions typically prelude filming by a few months at most.
