As has been reported earlier, the script has been started by the Virtual Sequels Core Team. Coral Duster has begun the arduous task of supervising the script writing, which will actually be accomplished by committee. That meaning, each member of the VS Team will be assigned a scene or collection of scenes to transform from "treatment" to screenplay form.
In talking with Coral Duster, he mentioned one scene in particular he was working on.
(SPOILERS-- HIGHLIGHT TO READ) The opening scene, after the crawl, shows a New Republic ship entering the Tatooine system. The faces of the Skywalker children can be seen through one of the viewports. Suddenly, another ship drops out of hyperspace. It appears the action follows suit with the rest of the Star Wars films. We're not wasting anytime getting into the action.
In related news, the ages of the children have been confirmed. Ben will be approximately 16 and Kane will be 14 in Episode VII. Please check out The Episode VII Storyline Page for a more detailed description of this scene.
As was reported earlier, a TF.N Exclusive Interview with Coral Duster will be forthcoming in the very near future.
