    Episode VII
    THE SILVER YEARS

    Han Solo and Leia Organa are enjoying retirement in a condo on New Alderaan. Little do they know that JAR-JAR BINKS has recently bought the apartment next to them, and is planning to drop by every afternoon for drinks and gin rummy. In panic they dispatch R2-D2 and C3PO to contact LUKE SKYWALKER, a washed up former Jedi running a sleazy bar on Tatooine, to convince him to sober up and save the peaceful condo from plunging into chaos...

    Episode VII
    RISE OF THE DISNEY FRANCHISE

    It was a period of of uncertainty. Although the PREQUEL TRILOGY was made, Star Wars had not graced
    the big screen in almost a decade. From these Dark Times a new hope emerged. George Lucas, long time custodian
    of the beloved FRANCHISE had secretly been working on plans for a new series of movies, ones far more exciting
    & interesting then the last DREADED trilogy (IMO & excluding Ep3).

    Striking from their corporate offices, the greedy Disney Empire unleashed their ULTIMATE WEAPON. A pile of cash with
    enough size & power to acquire any entertainment franchise in the galaxy!

    Armed with their new ICONIC movie property, The Empire swiftly hired JJ Abrams, Laurence Kasdan & other SINISTER AGENTS
    to produce this new episode. Original & new cast members are on board as the action resumes 35 years after the Battle of Endor.....

    Following the fall of the Emperor, 30 years ago, there has been relative peace between the Empire and the new Galactic Alliance. Dark forces have emerged to upset that balance.


    Whatever whatever

    As a side note I always loved how Episode III's started out with "War!"

    I somehow always seem to forget about this, and then every time I rematch it, I announce it loudly. And then I giggle.

    So someone claimed to have the first page of the Episode 7 script (it is most definitely fake) this got me thinking what would your opening dream crawl to be if you were making the film?

    My crawl.
    a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.....
    It is a period of civil unrest and of unstable peace in the galaxy.
    After twenty five years of bloody galactic war a peace has been
    reached between the Galactic Empire and The Galactic Union
    fallowed by a unsteady cold war for the past five years.
    However the Imperial High Council has dispatched an elite
    team of Troopers behind enemy lines to look into a lead on a
    missing Union leader, who could hold the key for a turning point
    in the long standing stale mate and bring the galaxy back into
    the hands of the Empire.

    Episode VII The Empty Fear

    Civil war! Once a distant memory, the peril
    of war now extends across the galaxy as
    ancient feuds, long thought to be resolved,
    threaten to reignite in open combat.

    Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Bob Tosche,
    has dispatched Leia Organa Solo in a desperate search for
    her brother, Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker, missing for twenty
    years, in a desperate attempt to restore peace and justice
    throughout the galaxy.

    The GALAXY is in ruin. Decades of civil war have
    destroyed the last remnants of the once peaceful
    GALACTIC REPUBLIC.

    Each controlling large numbers of systems,
    the REBEL ALLIANCEand the EMPIRE have
    reached an uneasy stalemate in an ongoing war
    of attrition.

    Fleeing his comander after a small skirmish in the
    OUTER RIM, a defecting STORMTROOPER races
    to find someone who can help him make sense of
    information he has discovered that may uncover the
    whereabouts of the last JEDI KNIGHT...

    EXT - Space over Tatooine

    A black and red TIE fighter flies past, two more of the ships follow firing as they go. An Imperial Star Destroyer fitted with gravity well generators slowly flies overhead, it's forward guns firing on the fleeing TIE as well.

    I like this. I like the idea of the first shot being a TIE Fighter racing across the screen, rather than a lightsaber.

    All Star Wars movies have begun in space and I think that will continue in this film.

    Well, I'm referring to the rumor that we'll see a lightsaber floating through space.

    Hate that idea much prefer the idea of seeing the lone tie fighter.

    STAR WARS

    EPISODE VII

    Shocked at the many unsubstantiated internet rumors,
    SuperShadow clones himself in a secret laboratory in
    order to take over Pinewood Studios.

    Launching from his clandestine headquarters, the vile
    rumor mongerer has launched his first assault on the
    Star Wars set, masquerading as a black robed cyborg in
    an attempt to pervert the minds of fans everywhere.

    Fortunately, the British security guards are somewhat
    smart, and they shot dead all the clones. But it appears
    the egregious fibber spreader escaped yet again, probably
    to resurface in Episode VIII....

    EPISIDE VII: RISE OF THE BUREAUCRATS

    IT IS A PERIOD OF LEGISLATIVE AMBIGUITY.
    GALACTIC BY-LAWS, PROPOSED BY SEVERAL
    SENATORS, HAVE INTRODUCED COMPLEX AND
    REFORMIST TRADE REGULATIONS THAT AMEND
    KEY PROVISIONS IN OTHER LEGISLATION
    RETROACTIVELY.

    FEARING A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS IF THE
    CONGRESS REFUSES TO PASS THESE AMENDMENTS,
    CITING IMPACTS THE CHANGES WOULD HAVE ON
    EXISTING INTER-GALACTIC CONVENTIONS AND
    ASSORTED TREATIES, THE GUNGAN SUPREME PRESIDENT
    JAR-JAR-BINKS HAS DISPATCHED SEVERAL JEDI
    AMBASSADORS TO NEGOTIATE WITH THE REPRESENTATIVES
    OF THE DISAFFECTED SYSTEMS WITH A VIEW TOWARDS
    CREATING A DIALOGUE THAT IS MORE CONDUCIVE
    TOWARDS BRINGING FORTH MORE SUBSTANTIVE
    NEGOTIATIONS...
