Some rumours already released:
The films are reworked versions of what Lucas was planning as far back as when he was making the original trilogy.
This next trilogy may conflate plot points originally intended to span two trilogies – the second featuring the Skywalker offspring.
As such, Luke Skywalker is a key character.
And so are many of “the original trilogy cast” with Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, C3PO and R2D2 set to appear.
Hamill is already locked-in.
The Empire was not completely destroyed at the end of Return of the Jedi.
Disney intend “on playing to the cultural significance of that original trilogy.”
The scripts that have already been written for the live-action TV show “will be absorbed in some way into a TV format.”
Disney are “all over” restoring the original trilogy.
This mysterious source also lists the names of some directors that were being “bandied about” – Steven Spielberg, Neill Blomkamp, Alfonso Cuaron, Matthew Vaughn, Darren Aronofsky and Joss Whedon.
