@DrewDad,
Cheapens the whole Lucas enterprise, probably beyond redemption.

@Lustig Andrei,
How so? What is so special about Lucasfilm that you feel needs to be preserved?

@engineer,
Oh, it's not about specialness of Lucasfilm; my feelings are those of disgust toward anything Disney.

Disney believes in making and promoting new films on established themes as long as they can be milked. I hope they have respect for the series and keep it as near the original vision as they can.

Considering the revisions that George Lucas has made, that would actually be something new for the franchise.

@DrewDad,
Lucus actually believes the Guido shot first. He's revised the first film so many times I think the Death Star survives in the current take.

Well Pixar has been left to its own devices. I'm sure when Disney bought Lucasfilm, George Lucas made sure that the company execs would have creative control over the Lucasfilm productions. At least I hope so. But then again, with the abject failures of Stars Wars episodes 1 to 3 from Lucas himself, maybe they might need a strong guiding hand to keep Lucas from repeating that franchise crushing nightmare.

@tsarstepan,
My thought is that Disney might give Lucusfilm a needed dose of direction and oversight. No more Jar Jar, no Ewoks. Let's do some serious Clone Wars on the big screen here. How about some post episode six stuff?

@engineer,
If you want to see a glimpse of a possible future, look at what Disney did with Marvel. We got Iron Man, Thor, Captain America all leading up to the Avengers, all well managed, respectful to the fans and not done on the cheap. I think Disney knows how to manage its properties.

@DrewDad,
The reports so far indicate that the next film will be Ep. 7 and be a sequal to Ep. 6 in the timeline. No more prequel stuff and there is technically speaking a 40 year timeline of books to chose from if they wish. The Hand of Thrawn trilogy comes to mind, written by Timothy Zahn.

If they go the other way and make Star Wars a musical do you think Chewy would get a Solo?

@Baldimo,
Lucas always said he envisioned nine stories with the next three after Return of the Jedi.

@engineer,
Jar Jar can elicit strong reactions.

I don't understand any of this--every damned Star Wars movie ever made was a shallow, predictable piece of sh*t. Those movies are the celluloid equivalent of the pulp science fiction magazines of the 40s and 50s, but without the redeeming, built-in campy humor.

@DrewDad,
I say good. It's time to move beyond Star Wars anyway. It was a great film for its time and worth remembering. But that story fit the late 20'th century, not the early 21'st. There must be some creative writers out there with some new ideas. I would like to see the film industry focus on those rather than trying to cash in on past glory.

Jar Jar meets Big Bird might make for a memorable episode.

@DrewDad,
Lucas has been really flakey about the last three movies in the triple-trilogy and has been making changes to the original movies and the last three just to make a quick buck IMO. Maybe this is a good thing if it keeps his sketchy butt out of things.
