    When I say "good" I'm talking about Diggs rumor (he actually said the SP was supposed to be great). I'm simply saying it correlates with what Horn is saying. But I don't think Horn would emphasize the screenplay's importance as much as he does ("screenplay, screenplay, screenplay") if he didn't think it really was good.

    So yes, I think he believes it really is good.

    I think the possibility exists that he would overstate the quality of the screenplay because of what his interest in its success is.

    True, but on the other hand, what does he say if it is genuinely what they wanted from the script?

    The same. You can't trust a word that comes out of the mouth of these people. Not because they are evil but because that's the rules of life.

    Trust KK and JJ if you want to. Take everything they say as the blessed words of gods. Doesn't really matter in the long run.

    I don't think anyone would take "official" word as gospel on something like that. I agree that they are always going to say that. However, it doesn't mean they aren't also telling the truth.

    Yeah, it really doesn't matter at all in the long run if we trust people who are in charge of the franchise for now. Give me a break. :rolleyes:

    I'm really not one to engage in any sort of direct confrontation here, but I honestly don't know what the hell would please some people around here. You get rumors? Hate. You get speculation? Hate. Leaks? Hate. Official info? Hate, don't trust them!

    Not like there isn't tons of optimism as well--in fact something that annoys me around these boards is the tendency for any criticism/skepticism to be met with charges of "you just want the new films to fail!" Anyways, I'd wager the script they have at the moment reads like a typical Star Wars script: some great human drama moments that may or may not translate to the screen, more than a couple of cheese-corn dialogue exchanges, a few placeholders for what should be some killer set pieces, etc.

    Clearly the most unbiased of sources.

    I trust what they do (though not blindly), but not what they say.

    In this industry, people are required to lie and JJ was already outed as a liar.

    So I'm not sure if you are being serious or just looking for a fight right now.

    The one I trust the most to tell the truth is Filoni, btw.

    Has it occurred to you that some people may not even want an episode VII? Or harboring some doubts about it?

    Genuine question, I'm not getting up in your grill [face_peace]

    RED: If people don't want an EPVII why hang out here and push their "hate"?
    GREEN: If people are harbouring doubts, then surely that wouldn't necessitate said "hate", but rather "caution"?

    1) If they care about SW in general and what happens to its future, certainly.

    2) I would think so, but apparently Hellhammer doesn't. I'm looking forwards to seeing the movies, but I still have some doubts.

    I don't put much stock in this storyline given the source and I find it a bit odd (although it's hard to judge a story from just a few lines) but it would explain why some of the characters were referred to as growing up without parents. Of course, starwars7news.com could have just taken the descriptions and made something up so we'll see.

    I don't think they would make anything up. Just think they aren't reputable enough to have good sources.

    Thing that makes me think this "plot leak" is a total fabrication is that the starwars7news guy says his sources claim this rumour has been floating around on the net since last summer. If that was true then we would have heard about it a long time before now. There's no way that would have been all over cyberspace for so long and no one else posted it.

    I also don't like the part where he said he got that information from another blogger. That's not very reputable, if you ask me. Especially since most of these fan blogs usually post stuff simply to gain hits and garner attention.

    I like that storyline. It's pretty simple and easy, which is the way they have to follow in the first episode of the ST.
