Terrible. It will be more child orientated, will re-write all of the pre-established books etc. , will overkill the "good vs. Evil" theme that is already there, now we can say buy to the possibility of good or gritty games such as republic commando 2, kotor, battefront jedi academy etc. etc.

The only good thing I see is that they have taken the initiative.
If they do well, good job, if not, then I wish star wars was just left alone

This can obviously go either way and admittedly my first reaction was "O S***" but My wife, my kids and myself are, for lack of a better term; "Disney Junkies" really. We live 2 hours from disneyland, buy annual passes and go a few times a year, buy a lot of disney films. Have disney decorations throughout our house and what I do see of them is massive creativity and they are always very thorough when it comes to telling a story and true to the spirit of the stories they are telling. I completely disagree with N00btuber about it being more childish. Disney mades it forune doig childrens movies and shows but Disney as a company owns so much media based assets its scary. They own ABC for good sakes which does lots of adult shows including news programs and has a massive advertising business across the country. Disney owns Marvel now and has done pretty well with it. Disney founded and owns Touchstone pictures which makes adult oriented films. Disneyland has had Star Tours as an attraction at the park for 30+ years and it has stayed true to what star wars is. I do not know what they will do with star wars continuitywise but I do know they do nothing without massive amounts of foresite beforehand so I would recommend nobody get too concerned about it.

let us not forget how good The Avengers and Pirates of the Caribbean were.

i think im more ****** about the fact that Lucas sold out. to us, Star Wars is priceless, but this act has shown us that Lucas no longer cares for his own story and is willing to put a price tag on it. if 1977 George Lucas came in a time machine to our time he would be appalled to find out how money corrupted he becomes.

I don't see it that way. Lucas is ready to retire. We have heard that before. I think this sale was intended to put Star Wars in the hands of people with the same imagination he has and personally I think his people at LA were doing a **** poor job of it and I think he knows it. I think Lucas made this sale to get some things done that LA just couldn't pull off. New games and new movies. I believe money was the goal but not for his own personal gain because he is already filthy rich but it was for star wars in general.

i think you mean Lucasfilm. Lucas Arts is for games and Lucasfilm Animation is for TCW.

This is potentially a good thing. The only problem I see is that the original actors are, in Han Solo's own words, "old fossils." They would have to do one of three things for the new films:

1) Have the movies with the original actors during the Second Galactic Civil War time frame

2)Make it an animated film, in which case they could do any era.

3)Make a live-action for the Sith-Imperial war, which would not include the original actors (as their characters would be dead).

I have heard that if there are going to be new films, they would be about the events after the Battle of Endor. Please tell me if I am mistaken.

Corret. According to what i read. The original script was 12 episodes. It was narrowed down to 9. The rise and fall of anakin, the salvation of anakin, and then something to do with Lukes unknown sibling. Supposedly they choose to allow Luke to find out about leia to justify him attacking Darth Vader when vader (Anakin) mentions trying to turn her. It was believed this eliminated episodes 7, 8 and 9 but whatever the last three episodes are is what Disney will be using for the trilogy. Basically Lucas' original script. No EU.
I would speculate it is the rebirth of the jedi order and defeat of the empire completely but thats just a guess

lol it will have the famous "Disney formula". Who knows, maybe it is for the best? Lucas seems to have become uninspired 15 years ago so.....
