You never know, Darabont could be a good choice for director. I could definitely see Asajj Ventress make an appearance in 7 (depending on what her CW fate is). I wouldn't be surprised if other characters make a reappearance either - the Death Watch crew or Talzin, for example, or even (depending on her fate) Ahsoka. We've yet to see a female villain in the saga. Would be something different. As for Arndt's supposed lack of action sci-fi, I think Oblivion and Hunger Games would qualify him on that front, although they haven't been released yet. And don't forget that TS3 has plenty of fun action-packed sequences that aren't just exciting, they're driven by characters we care for. That to me is what will make this new trilogy tick, I hope. Even Little Miss Sunshine has plenty of relevance for SW 7. A group of bickering, inter-generational family members make a journey in a vehicle that is constantly falling apart and letting them down. Feels potentially, very SW to me. Arndt is proven at writing humour and emotion as well, and he's a massive fan. He will totally get how important getting this right is (in a way I don't think GL has of late). I think it's a perfect fit.
