In The Mailbag: Sherwin from the Bay Area asks “Hey Peter, It was discussed on the podcast previously why JJ Abrams didn't have a plan or outline beyond Episode 7 and all I could help but wonder was... wasn't that supposed to be the job of the Lucasfilm Story Group? Perhaps I misunderstood what their purpose is, but I had thought they were supposed to oversee and steer all Star Wars canon and stories so that there was a single cohesive continuity. Does their influence not expand to the films? I had thought it would be similar to how there was at one point a Transformers story group that would determine the films for the next decade or so. Anyway, I find it all very puzzling that this current trilogy wasn't hashed out before Ep 7 even started filming, at least that's what it seems right now. Even the MCU had a loose outline of where they wanted to go, which eventually led to the Avengers film and beyond. I do listen daily, thanks to you and the crew.”
