Episode VII and J.J. Abrams and Star Trek

Don’t look at me like that
If Abrams can do THAT with Star Trek then you cannot even fathom how excited I am for Star Wars Episode VIIWyatt
Oh man. In all the fuss over whether Hamill, Fisher and Ford will be back or not, this has been overlooked. WE MIGHT SEE THE FALCON AGAIN.Brian
Good news that the new Star Wars is to be shot in the UK. I’m going to try for R2D2 again. Couldn’t do it in ’77 due to Hot Mum commitments.Don Estelle
Quite literally am wetting myself over production of Episode VII being done in the UK. Giddy with excitement. Green with envy. #starwarsSohail
If JJ Abrams puts Slusho in Star Wars, does that mean it’s in the same universe as Star Trek? I NEED TO KNOW!Brandon Judd
I really have high hopes for @starwars #EpisodeVII after the opening 10 minutes of the @StarTrekMovie. JJ Abrams could really be a winner!Chris Gelderd
Could it be a fate Kirk is called a #Farmboy by people around him in a JJ film who will be doing #EpisodeVII with the original Farmboy Luke?Chris Gelderd

Overheard in the office: Editorial Assistant looking at Star Wars books and muttering "Mara Jade is such a bad-ass…"Tor.com
The Star Wars Expanded Universe is sometimes in desperate need of a Sassy Gay Friend. SO MUCH COULD’VE BEEN AVOIDED.Bria
Every time some Old Republic era Jedi pops up in the post-RotJ #SWEU I just want to scream "WHERE THE #*$& WERE YOU WHEN PEOPLE WERE DYING?"Brian
To the person who said Luke and Mara’s romance was worse than Twilight: you owe me a new keyboard. …Oh, you were being serious? …Nanci
This Dalien Brock guy has some good points but goes about things the wrong way. Reminds me of Barriss Offee. #SWEU #IntoTheVoidAaron Goins
Where is the #sweu story where Han and Chewie take Luke out and get him drunk? We all know Han’s the ultimate wing-man.Lightsaber Rattling

Star Wars life

It’s a sad day when not one but TWO boys can’t reference star wars. What is the world coming too? #dissapointedGrace Briskman


2012: George Lucas sells LucasFilm, 2013: EA buys Star Wars game publishing rights, 2014: Disney buys EA, 2015: Skynet becomes operational.Marcel
A hodge podge rebel alliance with enough resources to make whacking great medals? You’d think they’d have bigger fish to fry #StarWarsLisa

    Agreed. I hope the sequels take the whole “The last of the Jedi will you be” thing a little more serious than the EU. Otherwise all those other guys will just seem like total flukes for letting Luke handle something that should perhaps have been handled by a somewhat more qualified Jedi. ;-)
