We all know how busy Abrams has been with the Star Trek sequel and we were also led to believe that George is supposed to have walked away from the new Star Wars trilogy save for some technical input, but it appears that the two have yet to connect about the new movie. This comes from Access Hollywood via Superhero Hype:
“I have not spoken to J.J. He’s been busy with Star Trek, and I’m sure that he’ll let me know when he’s got some questions. So, you know, that’s all going well. Kathy tells me it’s working out great.”
So there you go folks. Now we don’t know if Uncle George is being kept out of the loop, or if Abrams really has been busy, but so far Episode VII remains Lucas-free.
