There is a lot of speculation and conjecture on the boards (and online, in general) about Episode VII info. I would like to simply clear the air, and offer some perspective. The entirety of the information with regard to the creative direction of the new films that I have heard is the following redacted sentence. I know absolutely nothing else. I have heard nothing else. Arndt wanted the films to concentrate on one set of characters. JJ wanted to focus on another, already-established, person. KK and Lucas agreed. JJ won. This might be absolute and utter horsecrap. But both I and a number of other webmasters have heard this from multiple people. Nonetheless, this is still just a rumour. I would suggest everyone do this: Take it with a huge grain of salt. However, this summer, JJ's general unhappiness with the project was the worst kept secret in Hollywood. Right now, it is still incredibly early. The only reliable bits of info will be about casting. The rest will be kept under a very, very tight lid. Let's look at the three major leaks during the PT. AICN got a hold of the script for TPM in August 1998, when shooting was almost over. Harry got it from a guy called "Milo" in London. Designs from the film were leaked around that time, too. Two guys called Sith Interceptor and Scruffy Looken got hold of the AOTC script in September 2000. Production was under way. With SITH, the major leaked happened a bit earlier when Ewok Pudu got the script and a number of designs. However, even before that, AIC broke news about Grievous and the first action beat. I only mention all this because the major leaks will not happen until principal photography begins. Anything you hear until then is unverifiable. Personally, I will keep out of the spoiler game once production begins because I don't ant to be spoiled this time out. But I just wanted everyone to calm down. Myself included.
