    Only ones I don't agree with is 3 and 4. There's no way the budget is going to be 300 million, lol. These days, Studios like to exaggerate how much their movies cost to increase hype. Avatar, for example, didn't cost quite as much as they said it did. They used the bloated budget numbers as a marketing ploy. I don't see Episode VII costing anything above 200 million, and even that's a very high estimate.

    I doubt any PT actors will be signing on, but if they do, their roles will probably be so small (playing ghosts or voice work) they won't get announced this year, or kept as a surprise.

    Ok here's my follow up :

    The Budget will be very high & around $300 mill because Disney will throw everything at EP7 to a. get it right & b. make a ton of money back .
    The Big 3 will sign on even if it's only for EP7 as everyone wants this - it will be quite nostalgic & Micheal Arndt will write EP7 very well to incorperate this .
    The release date will be July 2015 because in no way do Disney want to be any where close to the release date of the Avengers .
    The Director will be announced very soon and look for Micheal Vuaghn's name to come out .
    I believe Ewen Mcgregor will sign on for a very small role either in flash back or as Obi-Wan's force ghost ( just to tie in the PT trilogy to ST trilogy ) .

    super shadow.....predicted the sequel trilogy along time ago....although he predicted EP7 to be released in 2021.....he stated that he interviews George Lucas & got the plots for EP 7 , 8 & 9 but this was rubbish & super shadow has no relationship to Lucas Film what so ever .

    Just read his "plot" seems more like poor fan fic.

    Something like this yes, though I hope the release date is May 2015. Since all 6 films came out in that month, plus my birthday ;)

    ...but if I have to wait a little longer to make sure it's done correctly I guess I'll live...plus I'd forgotten about the Avengers GGRRRRRRR

    My prediction for 2014 is that the release date will be pushed out to 2016.

    The Avengers 2 is going to be released May 2015. Unless Disney wants to compete with itself, Episode VII is unlikely to receive the traditional May release date.
