Chairman of Walt Disney Studios, Alan Horn, spoke at a Variety event this morning and let fly with some updates from what was formally the world of Lucasfilm-Only:

Well, that’s not a good sign. Call me crazy but “we just bought Star Wars and are launching the third trilogy in two years” sounded a lot to me like Episode VII was ready to go. Then Jj Abrams threw out the Michael Ardnt script/treatment and took it back to square one. That’s what pushed Star Wars into the Christmas season (since Disney CEO Bob Iger is promising new Star Wars in 2015).
History will contextualize this. But without a script, there can’t be a budget and an “expected budget” is what »
