Random rumor roulette: Episode VII to focus on OT in tone; Simon Pegg and Alfonso Cuaron likely?

SEQUEL TRILOGY RUMORS: Take seriously at your own risk.Marketsaw‘s spy is backing up the claims that Episode VII will focus on the Skywalker spawn, and also the film’s tone:

The focus is on the original trilogy in regards of reverence and tone. Remember I told you before that the tone was important, well I believe they are really taking that seriously. From everything I know, they’re focusing on that directly. Remember everything has the ability to change drastically, as Star Wars right now apart from the twin trilogies is a huge blank canvas. However, the trilogies ongoing narrative will continue to focus on that particular branch, whereas the stand alone movies, will fill and expand the voids in between in multiple timelines, and have potential to then be franchised themselves in regards to the worlds they open up.

The ‘news’ here, however, is the claim that Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Children of Men) may be a very important name in the hat for future Star Wars directing jobs, and to “expect” Simon Pegg in “some capacity.” Dengar?

UPDATE: Pegg tweets:

Oh, and they mention Plagueis as a possible spinoff, because of course.

    I would sit down to watch a Cuarón Star Wars film in an instant. Admittedly, I’ll sit down to watch any new Star Wars film in an instant, but I wouldn’t approach this one grudgingly.
