Why do I get the feeling that Kathleen Kennedy is going to announce the director of EPISODE VII very soon? Like "before Thanksgiving" soon? They've got such tremendous momentum going at the moment, why not send us into the holiday excitedly discussing what a new filmmaker could bring to the STAR WARS saga?
For now, though, it's time for more teasing. In the below video from StarWars.com, Kennedy and Lucas give us an idea of what they're looking for in the next director. They also continue to talk about "a couple of writers" developing the story, which suggests Michael Arndt isn't working alone. There is another!
In any event, enjoy parsing the hell out of this video. My money is still on Jon Favreau.
