Interesting and surprise choice. I really liked Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3. He's yet to be judged on the Hunger Games #2 but that could be promising. He also wrote screenplay for Phineas and Ferb which I haven't seen.

Certainly an interesting choice! I really liked Toy Story 3 and Little Miss Sunshine as well. Looks like the Phineas and Ferb feature that he's scripted is still in the works. I'm a big fan of the show and its creator Dan Povenmire who has a very consistent and high standard in the writing so this looks pretty solid.
Of course we won't know until our butts are in the seats two + years from now but so far it seems like things are lining up very well.

But I do hope that Disney does not erase Wookiee Life Day from the official Star Wars canon. I know the Holiday Special movie is bad, but it is so bad that it becomes good again, at least in my book.

I wonder how badly this will affect Wookieepedia?
Truth be told I gave up on the expanded universe nonsense years ago, in my opinion, the only real canon should be the movies & any stories written or developed by Lucas.
I still live in hope that Disney will one day release the original theatrical versions of episodes 4,5 & 6 on Blu-ray.
(Personally the only 2 changes I don't like are Han not shooting first & Darth saying "No Noooo" aloud just before he tops the Emperor, his silence just feels more dramatic for me).

Personally, I'm completely okay with them scrapping the entire EU. Except for the fact that Boba escapes the Sarlac, Shadows of the Empire and the Thrawn trilogy. I never got into any of the other EU stuff. I know a lot of people are very die hard about it though.
