Here is the family tree picture you might want to know....

More likely, there will have greatly powerful and strong in the movie better than in start and four where it was started in Star War 4-6 in 1977-1983, and Star War 1-3 started in 1999 to 2005. Now it's in processing Star Wars 7-9 in 2015. 
That is not the directly from novels or comics or other materials in the Star Wars Expanded Universe that take place during the post. 

Lucas and Walt Disney give a new director, J. J. Abrams, to take all of Star Wars 7-9 to see how it work on upcoming. 
As part of the Lucasfilm purchase, Disney received an "extensive story treatment" by Lucas for Episode VII. Neither Lucas nor Disney revealed any details of the plot at the film's announcement. It has been confirmed by both companies that Episode VII will be an original story and not directly based on the various novels, graphic novels, or other materials in theStar Wars Expanded Universe that take place during the post-Return of the Jedi time period. This includes, most notably, Timothy Zahn's 1991 novel Heir to the Empire, the first installment in Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy, which was originally considered by some fans to be Episode VII.[50] In a video interview that was part of the purchase announcement, Kennedy stated that she and Lucas had already met with writers to discuss the film script.[51] Less than two weeks after the purchase, it was announced that Michael Arndt, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter for Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3, had been chosen to write the screenplay.[52][53][54] According to reports, Arndt's treatment of the film is said to call for much older versions of the main characters returning along with other fan favorites.[55]

In an August 2012 meeting with series stars Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, Lucas disclosed that he would not direct the sequels.[44] This was confirmed as part of the Lucasfilm purchase and no director was named at that time. Not long after the announcement, the media speculated openly on possible directors; the list included Matthew Vaughn,[56][57] Steven SpielbergNeill BlomkampAlfonso CuarónDarren AronofskyJoss WhedonJon FavreauJoseph KosinskiColin Trevorrow,[58][59] J. J. AbramsBrad Bird and Rian Johnson.[60][61]Spielberg ruled himself out as a possible director, citing his incompatibility with the genre. In addition, Zack Snyder and Quentin Tarantino, who were both rumored to have been evaluated for the directing position, denied the rumors.[62] Abrams said he is "looking forward to the next iterations of Star Wars, but I will be going as a paying moviegoer." Brad Bird said that his next film would be a science-fiction film, but not Star Wars. "I will be first in line to see the new Star Wars."[63] Colin Trevorrow also ruled himself out for Episode VII.[64]Jon Favreau was more open to the idea of directing the film.[65] Disney contacted Guillermo del Toro to find out if he was interested, but del Toro declined, citing commitments to projects of his own and suggesting Brad Bird as a more suitable choice.[66] Producer Frank Marshall, husband of Kathleen Kennedy and long-time collaborator with her in The Kennedy/Marshall Company, said that the search for a director was down to "a couple of candidates".[67] On January 24, 2013, several news outlets revealed that J. J. Abrams was close to signing a deal to direct Episode VII.[68] On January 25, 2013, The Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm officially announced Abrams as director and producer,[69] along with Bryan Burk and their company Bad Robot Productions.[70] Production on all of the film's battle scenes will start this summer in the United Kingdom.[71]
Media speculation also focused on the possible return of series stars Mark HamillCarrie FisherHarrison FordBilly Dee WilliamsEwan McGregor and Samuel L. Jackson. Carrie Fisher was recorded on video stating that she would like to reprise the role of Princess Leia.[72] It was reported that Ford was open to returning to the role of Han Solo, and all three were "upbeat" to return.[73] Billy Dee Williams' character, Lando Calrissian, has been reported to be in Arndt's story treatment, and Williams has stated that he would be interested in reprising the role for the film.[74] Ewan McGregor, who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequel trilogy, said that he was open to the possibility of playing the character in Episode VII.[75] Samuel L. Jackson, who played Mace Windu in the prequels, also expressed his excitement and desire to return to the franchise.[76] On February 15, 2013, several media outlets reported that Ford had signed on to the film, but it has not been confirmed by Ford or Lucasfilm.[77] Also in February 2013, John Williams, composer on all previous Star Wars films, expressed his interest in working on the new trilogy, stating: "Now we’re hearing of a new set of movies coming in 2015, 2016… so I need to make sure I’m still ready to go in a few years for what I hope would be continued work with George [Lucas]". It is unclear who Abrams is considering for the music, as he is a frequent collaborator of Michael Giacchino.[78]
Mark Hamill commented about the sequels in late February 2013 stating that "they are talking to us" and he is scheduled to meet with writer Michael Arndt and Kathleen Kennedy. Hamill stated that so far nobody has signed a contract though there appears to be interest in the entire cast. Hamill said prior to the Disney sale that along with Fisher they met with Lucas who asked them if they had any interest in returning and they would not re-cast their roles and write the characters out of the script. Hamill told Lucas that he wanted the franchise to go back to the way it was, in the sense that it was much more carefree and lighthearted and humorous. He also stated that he wanted the original cast of Ford, Fisher, Williams, along with Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels to be included in the new sequels making sure that everyone was one board and not just one person. Hamill was also asked about the script and he said he hasn't seen anything although speculated that the film would be based around the offspring of the original cast and he would play a Obi-Wan type role.[79]

Episodes VIII and IX

Lawrence Kasdan, writer of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, and Simon Kinberg will write and produce Episode VIII andEpisode IX.[80] The Hollywood Reporter subsequently reported that Kasdan and Kinberg would be working on future Star Wars projects, but not necessarily on Episode VIII and Episode IX. It was also reported that Disney would release Star Wars films "every two to three years".[81]
