Although 2015 will not come fast enough, an agreement to form a team that will work in the new Star Wars trilogy was announced yesterday, in which Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg will be the writers in charge of writing and producing episodes 8 and 9 of the new trilogy.

The arrival of Kasdan is a relief for fans of Star Wars, since he is the brains and pen behind "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi, episodes 5 and 6 respectively.

Will there be a twist in the new trilogy like the one of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker at the end of episode 5?

Lawrence Kasdan also worked on the saga of Indiana Jones and other films.

Meanwhile Simon Kinberg is no stranger to the genre of science fiction either, which among his most recent work is the third X-Men film and X-Men “First Class” and also Sherlock Holmes.

Will both of these writers provide a good balance for the force?

Disney and Lucasfilm confirmed a few days ago that the writer Michael Arndt would be the one working on episode 7, film that is expected to be released in 2015.
