It turns out J.J. Abrams really wasn't interested in directing Star Wars until Kathleen Kennedy talked him into it."Famously plain-spoken, she summarizes her pitch like this: 'Please do Star Wars.' And she had cards to play. Not only was Oscar winner Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) writing the script, but Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote 1980's The Empire Strikes Back and 1983's Return of the Jedi, was on board to consult. Abrams 'was flipping out when he found out that Michael and Larry were on the movie already,' says Kennedy. (Via Hollywood Reporter)

Space Pirate Captain Harlock
Based on the manga series Space Pirate Captain Harlock Wikipedia "In the future, Mankind has achieved a vast starfaring civilization, but is slowly and steadily succumbing to ennui or despair, often due to defeat and subjugation by a foreign invader. Rising against the general apathy, Harlock denies defeat and leads an outlaw crew aboard his starship Arcadia to undertake daring raids against Earth's oppressors. Their primary oppressors are the Mazone, a race of organic plant-based alien women who explored Earth in the mythic past and are now back to reclaim it."

    So we can blame Kathleen Kennedy for Abrams directing Star Wars, huh?

  3. thank you for the shout out... i loved the trek... trek, i wish i had an once of creativity for making that!

  4. The plot of space pirate is great.

  5. The a to z challenge will be epic Alex. You don't think he'll be good?
