Disney buys Lucas Film, Promises Star Wars Episode VII by 2015, which will be about THIS!

FYI: Hurricane Sandy is still inhibiting my ability to post on a regular basis and I have no idea when that will stop. I hope everyone is safe and fortified as the siege continues!

If you don’t know, I’m a Star Wars Nerd (please don’t say Geek -for some reason, I think that would associate me with The Big Bang Theory in some way, and I do not want that), and although the prequels ultimately made me question my faith in humanity, I’m still a fan. So, I can’t help but speculate – what will Episode 7 be about?

George Lucas has reportedly written a treatment for Episodes 7, 8 and 9 but will not write or direct (which is probably for the best), but if he’s giving them 10 or 12 pages of story to work with (and I don’t see Lucas adapting any stories from the Star Wars Expanded Universe), odds are, Episode VII will go something like this, because this is what Episode I and IV were roughly about:

1. A wise old mentor (Luke Skywalker) takes a young man under his wing (one of Leia and Han’s kids)
2. The wise old mentor dies in the second or third act
3. The young man becomes the hero of the day

It’s a long way until 2015, but we can speculate because speculating is fun! Who knows what we’ll actually get, but for now, there is no reason to believe that we won’t get something fun to watch.
