"Star Wars" spin-off writers Lawrence Kasdan ("The Empire Strikes Back," "Raiders of the Lost Ark") and Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes," "X-Men: The Last Stand") recently spoke about "Star Wars: Episode VII" and the post-George Lucas universe moving forward and revealed...next to nothing. They feel a great responsibility towards the material, they're pleased Abrams is directing, yadda yadda yadda, and they wouldn’t confirm or deny whether these "spin-off" scripts would be starring established "Star Wars" characters or focusing on new ones.  Obviously, these guys aren't about to reveal any major clues lest their heads get chopped off by a lightsaber, but in an subsequent interview with the L.A. Times, Kasdan was somewhat more forthcoming. Perhaps most amusing was the way the screenwriter danced around the quality of the uniformly maligned "Star Wars" prequels »
