There has been a lot of doom and gloom surrounding the development of Episode VII as of late. There have been rumblings for awhile that J.J. Abrams hasn't been the happiest of souls thus far, as production crawls along. Last week's departure of screenwriter Michael Arndt (who wrote the first Episode VII treatment and script) only added fuel to this already explosive story.

In Defense Of George Lucas

Mike Ryan | Posted 08.19.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

Since selling Lucasfilm to Disney, Lucas has stated publically that he will be a "creative consultant" on the upcoming sequels. I do think the new, Disney-owned Lucasfilm wants to distance itself from the prequels, judging from its decision to cancel The Clone Wars, a show that just won an Emmy. And a good way for Disney to distance itself from the prequels is to distance itself from the man who is responsible for the prequels, George Lucas. If that's what the new Lucasfilm is doing, it's making a huge mistake.
