IGN was lucky to catch screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes, X-Men: The Last Stand) at last night’s Final Draft Big Break screenwriting awards, where Kasdan was honored with the hall of fame award. Jim Vejvoda talked to them about the upcoming seventh installment of the Star Wars Skywalker saga and the standalone spin-off films, which they are currently working on as “consultants”.

Will the sequel be set in WWII, the modern era, or both? And will Joe Johnston direct?
The director is signed for two films with Marvel, and as he promotes Captain America he is already talking about other films he’d like to make.

Flickr user Switthoft created this very alien, bronze Boba Fett Pez Dispenser by slaughtering a few Pez Simbas from The Lion King. The Circle of Life says “why not?”In the process, a “battle scar” was implemented, showing Pez guts. Let’s hope George Lucas doesn’t find out his address. More hot Pez action after the jump! (Safe for work.)
