“Star Wars” Rumor #1 Is a Great One!

Posted on November 8, 2012 at 11:07 pm

The first rumor following the Disney purchase of Lucasfilms is that the screenplay for the new “Star Wars” movie scheduled for 2015 could be written by Michael Arndt, who wrote “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Toy Story 3.”  He would be a superb choice.  He came into the “Toy Story” franchise after two spectacularly successful and completely self-contained episodes and came up with a screenplay that was completely true to the spirit of the earlier episodes while adding even greater depth to the story and characters.  This is a very good sign!  Stay tuned for more updates.

UPDATE 11/10  — it’s been confirmed.  This is very good news! Next, wait for an announcement of the director.
