Star Wars Episode 7, Directed by JJ Abrams, Set for December 18, 2015


“Star Wars: The George Lucas Pension”– no, whoops– Episode 7, directed by JJ Abrams– has gotten a release date: December 18, 2015. That’s two years from now. What shall we do while we wait? Will the economy get better? Will the Yankees get some young players and a couple of good pitchers? Who will replace Matt Lauer between now and then? Will Luke and Laura reunite? So many things to contemplate. How many Apple product updates will occur? iPhone 8? iPad with time travel? Will Britney Spears’ conservatorship be lifted? Will anyone explain what happened on “Lost”? “Homeland”? “Mad Men”?
