    I had a Mara Jade action figure! I never read the extended books, but she was an unlockable player in one of the Star Wars fighter games on PS1, so I remember be obsessed with her.

    Like, she turned to the dark side 20 years ago or something, and now she's more powerful than ever.

    But more than likely, she'll just have a 30-second cameo as some Jedi teacher ...
    One of my favorite elements of the Thrawn trilogy is that the Noghri (an enslaved race of alien warriors loyal to the late Darth Vader) revere Leia as Vader's heir and refer to her as Lady Vader. HOW COOL IS THAT?

    "Star Wars: Episode VII: Lady Vader."

    I want it!

    Leia didn't go evil in that plot line, though. She used her position as Lady Vader to persuade the Noghri to turn against the remnants of the Empire, and it ultimately proved to be the one gambit that the story's main villain (Grand Admiral Thrawn) didn't anticipate, eventually resulting in his eleventh hour defeat in the final book of the trilogy.

    Those really are pretty great stories. Worthy of the original movies.

    I guess the last bit of news we heard was that the Abrams/Kasdan script is done and they're pretty much ready to go.

    I'm glad they aren't picking up the story right after ROTJ and passing off Harrison Ford & Co as young

    I really want Michael Arndt's rejected screenplay to leak :3

    It's started filming.

    The announcements about Star Wars: Episode VII were made by Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn during a panel at Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television in Los Angeles on April 2. He also acknowledged that there had been problems with the script, but he’s confident in the version director J.J. Abrams and co-writer Lawrence Kasdan have worked on, which is based on a previous draft written by Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt.

    “It’s all about the screenplay,” Horn said. “It has to be screenplay, screenplay, screenplay.”
