He believes it’s “worth the wait.”
What was "the wait" again? The wait since Revenge of the Sith (10 years), or is he talking since, in purists minds, the last real SW movie Return of the Jedi (them prequels are canon, right Bob?). Or is he talking the incredibly long (sarcasm) year and a half of both scripting and completing principle photography on the new one?
All of the above? I don't know, they guy said it's worth the wait. Can't read too much into that.
There's really no surprises in any of that news. One new movie every year until infinity, so and so may or may not be involved in this or that sequel or stand-alone...we've heard all that.
