Original Trilogy Scribe Lawrence Kasdan & Simon Kinberg Being Considered For Episode 8 & 9

Jay Cochran - November 21, 2012


Deadline reports that Disney is in talks with Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg to scribe the Star Wars Episodes 8 and 9 movies. Michael Arndt (Toy Story III) was recently hired to do Episode 7, the first Star Wars movie to be released under the Disney banner.

Kasdan is well known to Star Wars fans because he scripted both the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as well as Raiders Of The Lost Ark for Lucas and Steven Spielberg.

Kinberg's work includes Sherlock Holmes, X-Men: First Class and the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past which is being directed by Bryan Singer.

Episode 7 is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2015 with the following two films to follow in 2017 and 2019.

Me too, yojoe. I've always had an unhealthy appreciation for them myself. (lol) Seriously, I've always had some weird fascination with them ever since I bought my original Kenner Chief Chirpa years and years and years ago at a local K-Mart that doesn't even exist anymore. They were just ... read more

I like Ewoks. Just before the Disney sale I found myself bored at work and was doing sketches of Wicket as one of Luke's first Jedi apprentices...gave him a little light saber/spear and I thought, "Yeah, this would never happen". Now, who knows!

hey, in all fairness to the Ewoks...both of their made for tv movies, especially Battle, were far superior films to the prequels. [img] (link)

[font="Comic Sans MS"]This may have been mentioned I'm not sure, but w/Mickey at the helm, can we expect more heaping helpings of furry cuddly wacky sidekicks? JarJar, Ewoks, or even more kid friendly characters? I think most people groaned at Anakin being so young in the Phantom Menac... read more

I just want to point out to those that hate Lucas, he has his moments. For example, when Lawrence Kasdan wanted to kill off Han Solo in [i]Return of the Jedi[/i], Lucas refused, and rightfully so. So they saved him from Jabba only to be killed in the Battle of Endor? That would have been, as the you... read more

I really don't see Kasdan being involved as either a good or bad thing. Sure he get some kudo's for helpingn with the OT and Indy, but the rest of his body of work isn't something that really excites me. I think the only other thing he did that I really enjoyed was Dreamcatcher and that ... read more
