Plus I can only dream this happens, but...A Pixar Indiana Jones film would be amazing.


Might as well have them do a Pixar Star Wars too. I'd bet they could pull of a pretty cool SW flick.

How about the original unaltered trilogy on Blu-Ray first and foremost before anything else.

New sig coming soon.

Timothy Zahn trilogy please.


I thought this at first too, but after mullying over a little more, I don't think it would work. Not only would they have to nail everything "perfectly" to avoid an internet backlash, there are also Force blocking animals. Force blocking animals!

It's still my favorite Star Wars story, but I don't think it would work on film. If they start their own trilogy, the sky's the limit.

Only good can come out of this. At least George is done shitting on Star Wars now.

I am also hoping for a remastered original trilogy on blu ray, I'm pretty sure that's coming. George was hard-headed, Disney wants to make money.

This. Everyone crapped their pants when Disney bought Marvel, then Avengers quickly shut everyones traps. The way Lucas has been for the last... 2 decades, I'm thinking only good can come from this.

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.


Agreed on the first. Lots of painful moments, especially in the first two, but not as bad as many make them out to be. Same with Indy 4 IMO.

Disagree on the 2nd. The extended universe (novels etc.) have some great Star Wars stories. I doubt they'll use any of those, but those show it's not hard to write good, compelling stories in that universe.

Lots of options with Jedi, return of the Sith (any Jedi can turn to the dark side), invasions from beyond the galaxy etc. Not to mention ability to go back and make old republic movies after episodes 7-9 are done.

And yes, the Prequels were that bad. The last 30 years have completely proven one fact to me: Anyone can make a good Star Wars story EXCEPT for Lucas.

The first prequel was mind-blowing dull. I didn't even bother to see the next two, because it was so horrible. Sorry, but there was no exaggeration on how bad at least the first prequel was. IMHO. :) :)

I'll be curious to see what Disney comes up with, and maybe taking it out of the hands of Lucas will help. After all the best original movie was the one that he had the least to do with: Empire.

Nothing but eye-candy. For anyone who loves the Star Wars Universe though, a complete disappointment. Turning one of the greatest bad guys, Darth Vader, into a whiny baby is something I will never get past.

Totally agree. The prequels weren't great but not as horrible as all the internet nerds make them out to be. The potential for awesome Star Wars stories is basically endless. Disney has done an amazing job with Marvel so I have high hopes they will be careful with Star Wars and not crap all over it. Just think, in 20 years there might only be 3 iffy movies out of 15+ movies overall!

You guys must have seen different movies than the ones I saw, because yes the prequels were pretty bad. Ep III was ok, but the first two are pretty flat, with dull characters, bad acting, and a ho-hum story. It all led up to the 3rd, which I thought delivered, but those first 2 prequels, EWWW!

So Georgie boy wants to complain that people shit on his prequel vision? That's why he doesn't want to do anymore? Fuck man, learn to take criticism or get out of the game.

Oh, he has, well then.

I don't understand why Disney getting involved is necessarily a bad thing. Getting Lucas out of the loop is the best thing to happen to Star wars in over 20 years. The prequels sucked.

I love Star Wars as much as the next nerd, but this franchise was dying a slow death...and Lucas himself has been twisting the dagger for years. Say what you want about Disney, but they generally do things right. Even if just "doing it right" means serving as a bank for the ones actually bringing in the creativity, at least they can recognize talent. Pixar has flourished since Disney took them in. Marvel has done the same. Disney's own brand of animation has even been revitalized.

Yes, some of their live action films haven't been mega blockbusters, but they've been more than serviceable (Prince of Persia, John Carter, etc). With a known franchise with as much of a history to pull from as Star Wars, there's no way they don't show it some meticulous TLC. And at the very least, at least we won't have George Lucas getting in his own way and mucking everything up because of some insane "vision" he has. As odd of an acquisition as this may be, I'll be shocked if it doesn't end up being a great thing.

Ya know, something else that wouldn't surprise me is if this turned out to be like a Steve Jobs thing, and we'll find out in a month or so that Lucas has cancer or something.

So more then likely no chance of rerelease of original trilogy without the dumb edits and CG since 20th Century Fox still owns the rights to those.

Lucas is giving almost all of the 4 billion dollars to education. He made some shitty prequels, but that's a worthy thing indeed.

...I liked this. Even though Darth Vader is already at Disneyland. Kids can build their own lightsabers and fight Darth Vader dressed as Jedis.

Personally, I think this will be fine. Now that Disney owns the franchise, we can finally get the original non-special edition trilogy on Blu-Ray sooner or later. I think it's also fun to note that Pixar was originally a part of Lucasarts. They seem to being doing quite well with Disney.

The only bad side I can see is that Disney has a weird 52 episode policy with most of their television series. Although, that would probably just mean a new Star Wars series every 2-3 years.

Am I the only one who really dislikes the Clone Wars series? That show just has no character, and I can't stand the animation style.
