And the Threepio goes to...
If you need anymore proof that the Mouse picked the right person, look no further...
For Star Wars, I mean. Michael Arndt is a very talented writer. He knows story. He knows structure. He knows how to take an arc and follow through with a payoff. I don't know who will be the director that is chosen to film this chapter of the Star Wars saga, but I am confindant in the writer.
I have faith that the script he turns in will be well thought out, well written, and compelling. The man knows how to tell a story, even if it's a toy story. I trust Kathleen Kennedy guiding the project through, and it speaks volumes that she chose Arndt to work on the treatment and then the first script of this new trilogy.
If you want to see how smart a fellow he is, take a look at this video from 2007 where Michael Arndt gave a speech about his script for "Little Miss Sunshine" at a local San Francisco book store. I believe that after watching his conversation about the screenwriting process, you'll feel safer about him being in front of a keyboard typing out the future of that galaxy far, far away.
No Midi-chlorians here, please...

Is that a C3PO he's holding instead of an Oscar?
