Tempered by Lawrence Casdan, the man who wrote Star Wars Episode V and VI as well as Raiders of the Lost Ark, as co-writer.

It’s an all-new adventure in that Far Away Galaxy we’ve come to know and love.

You either hate Jar Jar Binks or you’re wrong, so there being no mention of Gungans in the teaser trailers or synopsis is a great sign for the film.
