George Lucas is in the news once again, this time talking about Episode VII director J.J Abrams. Access Hollywood reports that the Maker himself had some very positive things to say about J.J:
“No matter how you do it, it’s a complicated cultural icon. Therefore you’re always going to be in trouble no matter what you do. So, the best thing you can do is just plow forward and try to do the best story you can.”
With GL's approval do you have more faith in Episode VII? Let us know why, or why not, in the comments below!

Be on the lookout for future caption contests on our Facebook page (almost)every Wednesday!
Almost every Star Wars fan can remember where they were when they heard this news. And as always, every fan made their opinion know loud & clear. Reactions to this bombshell was all over the board, from joyous excitement, to confusion, to extreme negativity. Still, months later, anxieties run high as we await the next chapter in the Star Wars Saga. In this article, I will respond to some logical, and some not so logical comments about Episode VII that I've seen floating around the Interwebs...
"It Just Won't Be The Same Without The 20th Century Fox Logo."
The best choice for Episode VII's story is a new & fresh story, not one based in or around the Expanded Universe. Perfect continuity has been a thing of the past for a long time now. In my opinion, it went out the window when the Tantive IV's appearance in Revenge Of The Sith was ridiculously retconned to be the Sundered Heart. It's a fictional Universe, all of its stories cannot co-exist and work together without problems. Star Wars fans must accept this fact and let go of their obsession with canon.
In the Prequels a large array of characters are introduced, but by the time we get to A New Hope only six of the main cast remain alive; Bail Organa, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Palpatine, Anakin/Vader & Chewbacca. They all subsequently die in the Original trilogy trilogy(Chewie being an exception), leaving only the "New" characters left at the end of Return Of The Jedi. I believe we could see something similar in the Sequels. Han, Luke, Leia & the gang, as much as I hate to say it, could all meet their fates over the course of the next trilogy. Leaving room for new characters, and actors to play them, to take their places.
