For some reason over the weekend at or a bit after San Diego Comic-Con a rumor emerged that director J.J. Abrams was dropping out of directing Star Wars Episode 7. The rumor got so big that now Lucasfilm has issued a statement disproving the whole scenario.
Here’s what they said:
“There is no truth to the rumor. J.J. is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year.”
So there you have it “J.J. is having a great time” and “Everything is proceeding as for-seen” like Emperor Palpatine would say.
On thing that is a fact about Star Wars at Comic-Con is that their presentation was not very impressive this year. Perhaps Disney/Lucasfilm is gearing up for something BIG at D23? Who knows.
