They shouldn't even need to go all the way up to NJO, there's enough material in the 20 years after ROTJ to make a lifetime's worth of movies.

Well, I think that it can't get much worse than the prequels. StarWars was never an innovation in terms of story (ANH is really simply "The hidden fortress" in space), but at least well done. I would have higher expectations of Indiana Jones.

Lucas wanted to get Lucasarts handled over to a new owner before he gets too old to do that properly, thats all, and he made 4 billion USD with it. I can see far worse deals.

To say it in a phrase coined by the Star Wars movies...

Anyone remember the Animal Planet TV show, the Future Is Wild?



This is kinda like that, except it isn't about gigantic CGI elephant-tortoises, it's about Star Wars and Disney.

Welcome to the future. The Future Is Weird.

If they finally do the originals justice, then it's worth it as far as I'm concerned. Even if the sequel trilogy is complete garbage (i.e., almost as bad as the prequels EDIT: the English language lacks the words needed to describe how terrible they were), at least the originals will be there. Who knows? Maybe 7, 8, and 9 will be decent movies, but it won't be the same (and we all know it).

What I really don't get is this: From a business perspective, it's a really good idea- I guarantee it will become sold out before you can blink. Maybe asking/petitioning Disney will work. They own Lucasfilm now, right? Does Lucas still own the original films?????????
I really don't understand why people dislike the enhanced versions. The story wasn't changed and in my opinion the expanded views of the cities and it's people added to the overall atmosphere. What's the big with seeing views of the cloud city out windows where there were once plain walls or forest were there were walls. I really just don't understand the hate towards Lucas for the enhanced versions.

Yea, I thought Revenge of the Sith was a halfway decent movie, on pair with Return of the Jedi (maybe slightly less so), but it was plauged by the fact it's predecessors were Episode I and II.

Also the biggest misconception out there on the Internet is the fact that people think Disney is making the movie. That is incorrect, LucasFilm wouldn't agree with completely getting rid of their company. It's like saying Fox Studios made Star Wars in the first place. LucasFilm made Star Wars. Disney is just going to be footing the bill, they've earned the rights to the movie, nothing more. This is still LFL's baby, and they will treat it like what it is - a 7th Star Wars movie. LucasFilm is incharge of principle photography, casting, and directing. That's why I don't have a problem with a Disney/Star Wars flick.

Im hoping they can complete the production in 7 parsecs.

I get it, It is a measure of distance not time, but you will get the point.

Hey, I don't post on this forum very much but Hello.

I think you hit the nail right on the head. Star Wars (the movies) is going to be very much in the creative control of LFL. I think the bigger story is what this is going to mean for other aspects of both Star Wars and Disney. Walt Disney World had their butts handed to them when Universal Orlando opened up their Harry Potter attractions. At the time Disney completely redesigned their Fantasyland makeover to be more competitive. Later they would go on to sign a deal with James Cameron to include an Avatar expansion to their Animal Kingdom park. Neither really caught the attention of the public the way Wizarding World did. As far as theme park attractions go, Disney only has one SW based ride (a simulator ride) and a month long weekend festivity know as 'Star Wars Weekends'. I think Disney's ultimate goal in this is to make at the very least a large park expansion, if not a whole new park, to completely blow Harry Potter out of the water. To continue to have a new movie on the horizon would be the best way to keep people flowing in.

Nothing to do with my above post, but I would also like to point out I've already seen news articles claim Leia is the newest Disney princess, so at least we have that.

Lucasfilm source says that it'll be an "original story" not based on any of the existing material:
