Kathleen Kennedy Confirms Saga Films are About 'The Skywalker Family'

Ever since Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens was announced back in October 2012, fans have wondered whether or not the new films would continue the story of the Skywalker family or if they would shift the focus to new characters (with the legacy characters in supporting roles).  Now, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed once and for all that the sequel trilogy (and all future saga films) are about "the Skywalker family saga" and other Star Wars stories will be told in the Anthology films.

In a recent interview The Costco Connection (because, why not?) Kennedy said, 

“The Saga films focus on the Skywalker family saga,” she explains. “The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. The Force Awakens follows Return of the Jedi and continues that generational story. The Anthology films offer opportunities to explore fresh characters, new storylines and a variety of genres inside the Star Wars universe.”

While this isn't really anything new, it's nice to have a clear confirmation of what to expect (in the broadest of terms) in the different varieties of films.
