I think it is a bit of news seeing as Roger Deakins has just come out and said that film is dead.

Does anyone know how the standalone films (which are basically prequels, hint hint) are being shot?

I think this was the Futurama meme you're looking for.

Abrams.  Well, get ready for Death Star 4.0.

Kennedy: “With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for*, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy."

* Buckeye Jones:  "Except new stuff."

As I said at Facebook: So Colin Trevorrow, who got his start in blockbusters because he reminded Brad Bird of Brad Bird, is now being replaced as director of Star Wars: Episode IX by JJ Abrams, who produced Brad Bird's first (and so far only successful) live-action film.

Funny how the young up-and-comers keep getting bumped for the well-remunerated establishment hacks (Ron Howard on the Han Solo film, Abrams here...).
