I think I first watched Star Wars in 1985 when I was 5 years old. I have no idea how many times I have watched the original trilogy. A few years ago I bought a redone DvD set because it had the original movies shown in the theater as an extra. I only watch those originals and never watch the Lucas mistates (Han shot first and didn't step on Jabba).
I have seen Ep 1, 2, 3 one time each, and have no desire to see them again. So yes I don't hate them, but I don't enjoy them. The only line I know from them is "Mesa Jar Jar Binks" *sigh*.
I will watch the next three in hopes they are good and memorable, and because I am a huge Star Wars fan.

That's a lot better than being director at least. There's at least an off chance this could be good if Disney finds some talent.

While I like Star Wars, I'm not going into fanboi-mode and be like "omg series is ruined cause they changed studio". I have faith in Disney studios, and will only complain if the final product sucks.

That was the original plan but I don't think the new trilogy will be following that. Disney will definitely want to target the tween demographics due to the success of Harry Potter/Twilight/Hunger Games. It's likely that they're going to set the movie far enough in to the future that they won't reuse any of the same characters save for people they can CGI. It's unlike they'll be able to get all of the old actors back and they are iconic enough that replacing them with new actors would not sit well with the fanbase. If they're going after the tween crowd they'd want to use new characters anyways. They're probably going to go with the love triangle approach of main character + 2 love interests and set it in a Jedi academy.
Disney definitely wants their own HP/Twilight/HG franchise, and what better way than to do it with a risky free franchise, since even if they don't capture the tween crowd, they can still rely on the huge number of existing SW fans to pull in the numbers they need to make a profit.

It could be an epic animated Jedi Fish Hooks stylized movie with scenes like this...
Disneyland has had a Jedi Training academy show for quite a while now.

However, I feel that 6 movies is more than enough. There's no need to keep it going. Skywalker's story is done (let's be honest, that's all Star Wars was, the story of the Skywalkers). The galaxy has been saved from the Empire. The games and books can keep churning out the sith and other stories, but this announcement just feels like a money-grabbing move.

Lucas does like remaking things, though he usually remakes things that don't need it.

Both KOTOR games have better stories than the prequels, the cartoon (not 3D) clone wars mini-series was better than the prequels, hell the ToR opening cinematic is better than the prequels. I think the world still has plenty of milage if it can just get some decent writers behind it.
Besides, there are very few sci-fi worlds that even want to clone religious fanatics wielding laser swords for whatever reason. That's alot of the "pent up demand" Disney is noticing going untapped.

Disney rather recently released on of the most successful movies this year. The Avengers. So clearly they can make good and successful movies.
