 Everyone seems to be jumping on the phrase "female lead". That doesn't mean a girl-power, Buffy/Dollhouse/Alias type thing. In the original, 1977 Star Wars, Carrie Fisher was the female lead. That doesn't mean it was a Princess Leia movie, it means she was the top-billed woman.

Don't read too much into that phrase.

Please don't have the movie with a female lead. I'm so over this girl power shit. Not trying to say women cant do what men do but I tried of the Buffy the vampire slayer type it's so corny now. It's like when you hear about an old movie being remade all you think is really?"

Why the hell not? Girl power has nothing to do with it. It would be a fresh start to have a female lead. What a sexist jerk statement to make. Retarded to say the least.

Also, Jaina Solo, Leia's daighter, was the best new lead character out of EU books.  If they even came close to her in character but made her Luke's daughter instead it would rockthe house like a boss.

 Crap.  Really?  No other directors out there that can gives us a Star Wars film?   I hated the Star Trek film.  It was an insult to the intelligence.

I completely and totally disagree that SW was heading down rthe downward spiral that Trek was going.

The movies, well mainly the original trilogy, are all time classics. They will forever be honored and adored by the general public, similar to the Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Lion King, etc.

If the movies were all there ever were they would still be making money. The last Blu-ray release was the best selling discs of all time. They always get good rating on SpikeTV. But it also has a thriving book, comic book, TV animation empire. If absolutely nothing were ever done new for SW they would still be huge.

RE: Lens Flare

Do a google image search for JJ Star Wars Logo.  Very amusing.

He's just directing the movie, not writing it.

I really liked the way that Star Trek was shot and MI3, so i'm down for this.

He's not someone that uses a ton of shaky cam, and that makes him ok in my book.

The Wrap was reporting that Ben Affleck was up for the gig as well.  That would have been an interesting choice.

violator is right, this movie is going to make billions. It will crush every other movie ever made in terms of profits. I also think it will be the best Star Wars movie made since Empire. This will kick so much ass. Here hoping for the Boba Fett movie too! Come on Joe Johnson!
