The third trilogy in the famed trilogy of trilogies was announced last October when Disney purchased Lucasfilm for a little over $4 billion in cash and stock. The new entry is set for a 2015 release, with Michael Arndt (of Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine fame) penned in to write the script.
Love him or hate him, J. J. Abrams has seen enormous success in recent years, whether he was bewildering fans with Lost, revitalizing the Star Trek franchise, or producing a love note to old Godzilla movies.

I hope this is for real!
