All the way from London, J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, the two men who will now be directing the course of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, have released this short but sweet “video selfie” wishing fans a Happy Star Wars Day.
Don’t get too excited as Abrams reveals nothing in the video but does promise that more casting announcements are coming (anyone else hoping a Lando Calrissian appearance?). As for the results of the table read that also announced the cast, sources say that Abrams and Kasdan have yet to finalize the script and are still working on it. This is not uncommon in a big budget film as this is part of the reason for table reads – which is to see what works and what doesn’t in a script.
Anyway, this is a great way to end ‘Star Wars Day’, don’t you think?
May the Fourth be with you!
Janice's first memories of the genre were of watching the original 'Star Trek' and classic 'Doctor Who' episodes (Tom Baker, aka the Fourth Doctor, was her first). Soon, she was introduced to 'Godzilla' and her addiction then spread to books, magazines, movies and comics. Janice continued as a closet geek as her thirst and love for sci-fi grew and was only second to her love of baking. Then one night, on a whim, she answered a tweet to be a writer for ScienceFiction.com and the geek girl insider her was soon set free. Within 3 years she became the Senior Editor for the site. When not writing or editing for ScienceFiction.com, Janice is scouring the internet to feed her sci-fi cravings while defending conspiracy theories, protecting scientific theorems and loving all things science fiction.... and baking cookies.
