    In Disney's defense, they know how to run a business. They purchased Marvel and have had a lot of success with the movies. I am very optimistic to see what happens with Lucas and Disney joining forces.

    There were originally 9 books, and George Lucas only wanted to tell the story of Anakin. (1 through 6, out of 9). He was thinking of leaving the last three up to his grandson, but that was before the Disney merger. Han and Leia have 2 kids, a boy and a girl. Since Jaba is now dead, Casada the Hut runs things. Han's son goes to the dark side and becomes the next Darth blah-blah, while his daughter follows in her daddy's footsteps as a smuggler. I hope they throw Dash Rendar in there somewhere too, he was my favorite action figure when I was a kid.

    Isn't this based off of EU books and comics? I thought they said that they were gonna make a mostly original story.

    Well I hope it does well, and doesn't soil the StarWars name like the Clone Wars did for me...

    Yeah. The new clone wars series just added another couple characters they'll have to end up killing off or sending into exile and generally just messed up the story. Now, the 2d clone wars "miniseries" that came out on Cartoon Network between the releases of episodes 2 and 3 were pretty good in my opinion. I mean, they fit the story, didn't stretch out the clone wars, and had some pretty cool stuff (remember the ARC trooper scenes? :) )

    Yeah, THAT Clone Wars was great, I enjoyed that one. I just don't like the CGi one. :/

    Well, as far as Hollywood is concerned, I can't help but notice that Disney has been churning out some semi descent material. Prince of Persia was enjoyable, as was John Carter. Again, it's Hollywood, but not bad compared to say, Michael Bay or most any other director out there that is over rated at the moment. I did not even mind Tron Legacy the second time around, I went back and read the tie in comic, and watched the bonus material from the Blue Ray, and can now except the majority of changes, I can not wait for part three!

    That said, I think Star Wars is in better hands with Disney, than it was in the hands of Lucas. Granted, nothing is going to compare to the expanded universe material found in at least half the books, and a good sum of the Dark Horse material, and no one can direct Star Wars like Irvin Kershner, but again, at least it is not Lucas! Seriously.

    I would think Disney, and I hate to put it in these terms as it sound like blasphemy speaking of Star Wars in business terms, but I would think that Disney has the business sense to try to appease fans of both universes as much as possible so as to make as much money as possible. At least I hope so. (Desperation)

    If Michael Bay did the Star Wars series, there'd be more explosions, sexual innuendo and Shia LeBeouf wannabes blurting out random sounds while running like a chicken with its head cut off.

    "Idk" should be an option in the poll. I hope it does well as well.

    Don't forget that Disney did the Avengers. :) that makes me a bit more hopeful.

    1. It prints money.
    2. IT PRINTS MONEY!!!
    3. OH MY GOD LOOK AT ALL THAT MONEY THAT IT PRINTED AND IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE STOPPING
    WHY CAN'T I HOLD ALL THESE WADS OF CASH
    I'M GONNA NEED A BIGGER SAFE

    Does that answer your question?

    Kind of looking forward to it, and I'm sure it'll be a solid 7 in my book. Maybe even more.
    Don't have anything against it personally.

    Wait, what? You mean the last three SW 'films' were NOT done by Mike "mid-life crisis" Bay?? Huh, could have fooled me, they utilize all of his signature film making 'skills'....
    (Sure it wasn't Ewe Boll? ...Bruckheimer? ...meh, there is little difference...)

    HEY - MORON modern 'directors': All of the CGI monsters, flopping tits, annoying kid actors, digital spaceships, and hollow, emotionless characters in the WORLD dont mean SHIT when you cant even make someone CARE about the characters!!

    What a truly awful, awful time for films...I'm sorry, kids, and I mean no sarcasm. :( At least the teens, 20-somethings, and kids coming-up have GAMES to look forward to, though. :)

    I just don't care.

    After all that Lucas has done to the franchise, I just can't care anymore. If they're good, great; if they're bad, well, whatever. It's not like we haven't experienced bad Star Wars movies before.
