As for Hayden...I don't know how George Lucas talked himself into that decision.
Agreed on Ewan. I didn't think he was amazing in TPM but he got better throughout the trilogy & was great by the end. Nothing touches Alec Guiness though!

The White House response to the Death Star proposal:

1.The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.

2.The Administration does not support blowing up planets.

3.Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

Now, to throw in a bit of conspiracy theory...

They have an estimate for the costs. Meaning, they were considering it!!

I know this isn't Episode 7 related but it is really an interesting story. If true of course.
Darth Vader role was offered to Toshiro Mifune back in 1977 and his face was supposed to be visible! Can you picture that?

I had understood that Vader was originally supposed to be a Samurai-like character, with a velvet mask, and the mechanical breathing apparatus originated in the intention that the Imperial forces would make a space walk to attack Leia's ship at the start of "A New Hope".

I have never heard the Tishoro story before. It is rather difficult to picture him as Mark Hamill's father.

Well this is before it was decided that Vader would be Luke's father. That didn't occur until the writing of ESB.

Zack Snyder Is Developing a Star Wars Film Outside the New Trilogy

By Claude Brodesser-Akner | VULTURE

Back in November, the Los Angeles Times reported that Man of Steel and 300 director Zack Snyder said he had no interest in directing the hotly anticipated seventh Star Wars film. But Vulture has learned that while this may be specifically true — he won’t be doing Episode VII — it was a bit of misdirection: He is in fact developing a Star Wars project for Lucasfilm that is set within the series’ galaxy, though parallel to the next trilogy. It will be an as-yet-untitled Jedi epic loosely based on Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 classic Seven Samurai, with the ronin and katana being replaced by the Force-wielding knights and their iconic lightsabers. (Go ahead, say it — you know you want to: “ … an elegant weapon, for a more civilized age.” Felt good, didn’t it?)

It’s not clear just where Snyder’s untitled Jedi film would fall within the Star Wars chronology, but one insider expects it will not be considered part of the “numbered” episodes, but rather a stand-alone film set sometime post–Episode VI events, meaning the next phase of the franchise development is much broader than previously thought. For those unfamiliar, Kurosawa’s influential Seven Samurai (The Magnificent Seven was the American remake) tells the tale of a small agrarian town in seventeenth-century Japan that’s routinely pillaged by bandits. Fed up with the annual shakedown, its farmers retain the services of seven masterless samurai to defend their harvest. George Lucas has cited the classic as one of his favorites, telling the Telegraph in 2005 that “it’s a brilliant, brilliant film, and every time I see it I can't believe the magic mixture of a great story and great acting and humour and action and suspense — wonderful cinema. The art of moving pictures is on every frame of this movie.”

In late October of last year, when Disney CEO Bob Iger first announced the acquisition of Lucasfilm, he’d stated that after Episode VII, “our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years.” Our sources also say that Snyder’s would start production after Disney starts on its planned 2015 release of Star Wars: Episode VII, and while no director has yet been set for Episode VII, clearly things are taking shape at Lucasfilm. (A spokesperson for Lucasfilm declined comment.)

In the meantime, we are left to ponder the obvious geek questions: Do Snyder’s Jedi carry just a single lightsaber or a long one and a short one, like samurai do? Oh God, why do you torture us so!?

Very interesting. Seems we'll be getting a ton of Star Wars for many, many years to come

Why can't they just announce a Boba Fett movie already? Maybe it's because they know that news of that will overshadow the entire new trilogy by both Fett lovers/haters.

Well I find this funny because the OT especially Episode IV is based off of most of Kurosawa's work to begin with. Mainly The Hidden Fortress.
