Would love to see the Timothy Zahn books as episodes 7-9 but I doubt that happens.


I at least hope Episode VII will be ~20 years after RotJ so it won't seem odd to have new actors playing all of the roles.

I'm honestly shocked. Dont want Episode VII, let the series end already in movie form.

The next movie can't possibly be as bad as the dreck that Lucas released like a weaponized virus. I'm completely put off of Star Wars at this point anyway so this is just hilarious news for me just to see all of the overblown reactions.

This is great news. If you don't like it or it legitimately ends up sucking, then just keep pretending the first three movies pre-Lucas revisions are the only thing that exist in your mind.

Otherwise, short of Lucas dying, this was the only way Star Wars was ever going to move forward.

I also hope FOX is kicking themselves somewhere. This could have been their baby.

I thought this was a joke when I first read about it. But, I'm excited. I have no complaints about Disney "kiddifying" the films. We all fell in love with the series as kids and they are cross generational.

A note to Disney: Kill the idea of the Avatar land at Animal Kingdom. Imagine an entire section or theme park based on Star Wars. Not just Star Tours. Universal's Harry Potter would be empty.

Finally we can start having stuff that doesn't take place pre episode IV. I'm so sick of things that took place between episode 1 and 3. I really do like the Clone War CG series though. Its about the only thing I like about the prequel trilogy besides the Duel of the Fates song.

I really haven't liked much Lucas has had to do with since the original trilogy.

I'm not 100% sure how I feel on this, but I'm leaning towards more excited then not...I didn't hate the new trilogy as much as a lot of people and I usually enjoy anything that takes place in this universe so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt, no to mention how Disney has been buying other franchises and not really making them more kid friendly so well see.

Do you really think the Harry Potter parks would be empty if there was a park like that for star wars....Umm most kids under the age of 25 would rather go to Harry Potter over Star Wars.

And since theme parks aren't really meant for the older generation, I highly doubt a Star Wars park would make Harry Potter world lose any business. Now I think the Star Wars park would do great, just like any new park, but to say Harry Potter would be empty is a pretty bone headed thing to say. I also am not a fan of either Harry Potter or Star Wars so not being biased.

On Topic: Disney is not going to turn this into a kiddy franchise. Why in the world do people think that's all Disney makes? Disney knows how to make great movies. Maybe John Carter was a flop as the box office, but the movie itself was done very well. So I have high hopes that Disney brings out a legitimate Star Wars film in 2015.

All Disney needs to do now is purchase the DC rights from WB and they'll effectively own the superhero universe.

Wasn't Disney nearly broke about 15 years or so ago when Eisner was running the company?

I thought I also read that George Lucas owned 100% of Lucasifilm so all of this $4 billion goes directly to him.

I'd love for there to be a new star wars movie but I'm not sure what would make it "good".

The 7 year old me would probably have enjoyed Attack of the clones. The nearly 30 year old me didn't.

Empire still holds up, though. Would love it if my kids had enough of attention spans to sit through the movies with me. :sad:

Works for me. Malcolm Reynolds was just an edgier version of Han Solo anyway.

Also, the first thing Disney should do is put Episodes I - III into "The Vault" for good.

If Disney were smart they'd use Timothy Zahn's Star Wars books as basis for the sequels.

He'll probably be busy with avengers 2. Making decent movies is very time consuming

That would actually really help. I'm pretty sure we have the technology to do stuff like that now.


Just remaking the movies would probably just be a better option though. Get some more well known actors in there this time instead of a bunch of nobodies.

I honestly didn't think that the prequels were as bad as everybody said they were. I think people just really love to bitch. Given that, I think that these future films will be pretty stupid. It's going to take a lot of creative writing to come up with good story lines that actually make sense.

^ 1000x this

Taken as regular movies the prequels were extraordinarily good. However, compared to the original movies I think it's true the first one does fall a little flat, and Jar Jar is annoying, which we all agree on. Still though, episode II and especially III were spectacular. And come on, if any movie ever was just BEGGING for a prequel, it was the original Star Wars.

As for an Episode VII? Totally unnecessary. I also thought the OP was a joke and was expecting a rickroll or something not credible. Look, I'm OK with Lucas making an Episode VII just as long as he promises he won't butt Fuck the series like he did with Indiana Jones IV. That movie was just painful, which is really sad because it could have been quite good.

Remakes would be a great idea because the originals are so old. Michael Cera as luke would perfect.

I'd rather see Episode 4,5,6 redone the same as the clone wars toon. Remaking them with regular live actors would absolutely suck. Kristen Stewart as Leia? Robert Pattinson as Han? The way hollywood works today would make these into tweener movies with the "hot" actors of today playing these iconic roles. No Thank You!!!

I heard that the movies were so bad because they spent most of their time and money working on that hairstyle. Tyler Perry as lando
