Honestly, with Disney I'm not even surprised about anything anymore. Despicable company, if ever I saw one.

So for those that don't want to click on that.  Disney bought out Lucasfilm.  Disney nows owns Star Wars and is going to produce a Star Wars feature film.  Small bits of me are intrigued.  Most of me is crying right now.  I just hope they can make it FEEL like SW which Ep1,2,3 did not not.  I also hope they don't try to have new actors play Han, Luke, Leia, and other favorite characters.  I know for Star Trek it just felt wrong having a new Kirk.

Rest easy, Ualtar, supposedly this new movie would lead into a new trilogy... That would take place 30 years after the (Chronologically) last movie, and the only recurring characters throughout all nine would be R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Well, maybe they can force some actual humor back into the franchise that was obviously forgotten about over time.  I guess it was too hard to have a character as good as Han Solo again (thanks Harrison).  It went from some 'fun' characters to a bunch of deadpan dialog with ALL the characters delivering every line in noble fashion.  It was kinda like Deadwood in space, but worse. :P  The pooch was screwed with young Anakin, JarJar and several other completely despisable characters.  Okay, I didn't/don't completely hate the newer three films, but a lot of things missed in the making.

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.

At least not some crap studio. Disney is good. Well, I don't know about their recent films, but the ones I've seen when I was younger were all good.
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.

The Clone Wars cartoon series isnt terrible, but I think thats a Cartoon Network production not Disney.

It could be an epic animated Jedi Fish Hooks stylized movie with scenes like this...

or Gravity Falls

or more likely Phineas and Ferb

Thats the pathetic quality Disney animation has sunk to these days.


Disneyland has had a Jedi Training academy show for quite a while now.

Oh look, Trekkies finally have something legitimate to hang over Starwars fan's heads that those fans will actually understand... (and which doesn't involve JarJar)

I'm not a huge star wars fan, but I liked the 6 movies. Okay, episode one and two were fairly... bad, actually, but I enjoyed them when I watched them at the time. Episode 3 was cool as well and actually enjoyed it. The only thing I didn't like was the humour with the droids. They were serious in episode 1, but became stupid and childlike by episode 3. That was a huge disappointment. I have to say that I did enjoy the older films more because they were just so family friendly as well as nerd friendly. You could really delve into the lore etc if you wanted to (not that I did, but obviously there's a lot there for the fans), or you could just watch it and enjoy it.

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.

Instead of making 7-9 they should just redo 1-3 so we can forget that hot mess of films ever happened.

Well...

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

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I grew up with the original trilogy and still watch them often (UNALTERED without the gratuitous extra crap), kinda had fun with the prequels but on a very superficial level - and to be honst I think that the way the prequels turned out it would have been better if they had never been made. Now if Lucas doesn't have full creative control we may get something halfway decent - but I'm not sure if I'll spend my money on these new movies, at least not until I hear some opinions from people with similar tastes as me.

Back in the late 90's I went to Disney and went through the Star Wars ride. They had great props and a huge AT-AT. They did a great job. So Disney is not foreign to the Star Wars Universe. Disney has been really trying to push into more adult situated films the past decade, Pirates of the Caribbean being one of those. They realize that people are sick of childish cartoons and mickey mouse. Out of all companies Disney is one of the few that has the talent and budget to take on Star Wars. Worst Case scenario: They screw it up and as normal I can fall back on the original trilogy, and making my vintage star wars toys just worth even more.

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.

I wonder why people are so pissed that it was Disney that bought it (maybe not here, but on other sites).

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