    From what I'm hearing, half of it is cash, half is in shares, and, as the article says, Star Wars: Episode VII is confirmed for a 2015 release.

    it's not april fools come early is it? I dunno how I feel about this. I have a soft spot for the prequels, but this could render even better films if they get some good writers/directors attached.

    I'm gonna take "Creative Consultant" as "The guy who says, 'Yeah, this can be in Star Wars.'"

    And after the Prequel Trilogy, I'm pretty sure that's wide open anyway.

    I do believe the writers are already selected. Could be wrong, though.

    I seriously doubt there will be an "episode 7",but at least more films will be made from that universe.
