Screenwriter Michael Arndt is leaving the project, Lawrence Kasdan and JJ Abrams are taking up writing duties.
Kennedy said in the statement that "There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a 'Star Wars' story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen." Thursday's announcement also included a team of below-the-line technicians and craftspeople as well, including director of photography Dan Mindel, production designers Rick Carter and Darren Gilford, costume designer Michael Kaplan, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, sound designer Ben Burtt, re-recording mixer Gary Rydstrom, supervising sound editor Matthew Wood, visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett. John Williams is returning to score "Star Wars: Episode VII." Burtt and Williams each received an Oscar for their work on the original 1977 "Star Wars.
I'm honestly excited about this. If Kasdan does the bulk of the writing then I have high hopes for the movie. His work in the Empire Strikes Back was the best in the franchise imo. Not to mention Raiders of the Motha****in Lost Ark
