Just what we want, grumpy old Han Solo.

As far as running Star Wars into the ground, too late! That happened in 1999.

Might be a good thing.








99.9% chance it won't be.

I just finished rewatching the original trilogy for the first time in 10 years, so I'm probably more excited for this than I would be otherwise.

There's a good chance that it'll suck, but I'll still hold out some hope. I'd like to think that Disney will view this as a major flagship title and that they'll put some real talent behind it (directing, acting, and writing wise.)

That will pale in comparison to what is about to happen. It's not just the quality of a movie, it beating people over the head with movie after movie after movie until there is no interest or money to be garnered from the franchise. When Disney is through with it, it will be like trying to get blood from a stone.

Maybe it's just me, but the movies should be left as is, and let Star Wars stand on it's own. More Star Wars film just doesn't sound like a good idea, especially when we're going to get them every 2-3 years until they no longer make any money.

I'm not believing this yet. New SW films (episodes, not cartoons) would be a big deal, and I don't think they would just mention it as a footnote in some business announcement.

Just adapt the Timothy Zahn movies, and bam-bam-bam! You've got a new trilogy.

I have no problems with this.

It can't possibly be any worse than Episode 1 and Episode 2. As long as it is true that Lucas will only be involved as a consultant, and he is kept far away from writing and directing, I have no problem with this.

Exciting to have new life in the franchise. Disney is just so dominating now.

My first thought on the disney deal - "Finally! The OOT on blu-ray AND iTunes!"

I can't imagine a director worth his salt would touch this franchise, considering the baggage and creating a film that has to live up to the originals, at least in Star Wars fans minds.

Man, is it a rule on DVDTALK that every thread has to have a post from the Whedon nuthuggers? Give it the fuck up already. :lol:

As long as George isn't writing, producing or directing it...I'm in.

I could see Hamill doing it. He doesn't seem to have the distance from the whole franchise that the others do.




Oh, I just got it: it will feature Ahsoka Tano, Anakin's apprentice from the Clone Wars series. She goes into hiding during the Clone wars and comes out of hiding some years after the Battle of Endor.

Lucas has already run Star Wars into the ground. It's not just the movies, but the endless merchandising and licensing. There's a Star Wars product of virtually anything. There is pretty much no way it can get worse.

As far as a movie every 2-3 years, so what? At this point the standard they have to live up to is pretty low.

As a prequel defender, I still admit they didn't live up to expectations, so that's basically the new standard that a new director will have to beat.

Oh, I forgot that they had planned a live action tv series. Wonder what will happen with that now.

Let Brad Bird direct it!

Yeah, count me in as being cautiously optimistic that this could be a good thing.

Also, Let Abrams have a go!

Conference call just said they have a treatment they like and are in early pre-production. Plan is to release 1 every 2 years once the first launches in 2015.

:lol: The fact that you compare Lucasfilm merchandising to Disney, is quite funny. There is no comparison. I still say the prequels have done enough damage. Leave it alone.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VII (2015, D: Unknown, S: Unknown)
 
But it wasn't going to get left alone, even if Disney weren't involved. We've got the Clone Wars series, the proposed live action series, etc.
