    Extend the amount of time he was out in the Unknown Regions and get the Grand Admiral as the protagonist.

    Disney said it planned to release new film Star Wars Episode 7 in 2015.

    That will be followed by Episodes 8 and 9 and then one new movie every two or three years, the company said.
    They should just start at Episode I again, pretend it never happened.

    Disney though? I mean, I know Star Wars is essentially a kids film that appeals to a broader range, but Disney, gah.
    Probably worth looking up what films Disney have produced, no?
    Enlighten me.

    Get good writers, directors etc.on this now. I imagine quite a few would love to really have a good go at Star Wars without all the baggage and Lucas.

    First of all, get rid of the all the yes men who rode along with Lucas.

    DPS was under the Buena Vista/Touchstone label. You might as well argue that Con Air is a Disney production if you're going down that route. There's a big difference between a movie produced by a label they own and a movie produced under the Walt Disney name itself.

    Best news for Star Wars in a long time. New movies will be fine as long as they get the right talent involved, there's a lot of good stuff that's been written for the post-Luke Skywalker era.

    Hopefully also a re-release of the original trilogy without the shitty Lucas additions.

    On another note, they would be better off rebooting the franchise and bring some continuity to the series. The best three films look a little dated by today's standards, as they were filmed in the (late) 70's.

    Thrawn trilogy or get the fuck out. Or they could base it in a different era and make a largely unconnected but still familiar story, a la Knights of the Old Republic.

    I don't hold much hope but it's not like the franchise can get a lot worse, can it?

    A KotOR film would be pretty awesome actually.

    Disney won't make a good Star Wars movie because that's not their main objective with this acquisition. It's all about the merchandising for them and they've just found their way into Aladdin's cave.

    I expect Ep 7 to be just as 'good' as Eps 1-3.

    Hopefully this might also free up the clamps on Star Wars games development. Can't say I care about the movies, they're about 70% garbage after all, but the lack of an X-Wing flying game for this entire console gen has been ridiculous.

    Given Disney's track record with games, I can presume it'll just go back to movie tie-ins for the 3DS/Wii with a couple of Just Dance: Star Wars titles.

    And the aforementioned Jar-Jar and R2 cropping up in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Triple Dash Rainbow Darklord Arse.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Excellent news as long as....

    They don't let George infect the new films with shite characters ( JAR JAR , that kid who couldn't act who played Anakin...and the bloke who played him for that matter....he couldn't act either ).

    Start looking to some of the amazing books, i.e " Heir to the Empire" etc etc.

    In fact, get Timothy Zhan to write the new trilogy.

    Edit the thread title to 'Star Wars: Episode Seven (Disney acquires Lucasfilm)' or something please. Both bits of very worthy news.

    "My only worry is that Disney don't respect the substantial expanded universe that has been built up over the years"

    My opinion is the exact reverse of this

    Still going to be aimed at kids I imagine. Merchandise and all that as well. Lucasfilm will still be full of hacks as well as Disney. Wait and see what they come up with.

    Apparently Paramount have some fingers in the franchise and not really worth much to Disney or the bother right now. Probably canned. It is Harrison Ford after all, I don't think they have anywhere to go with it and certainly not with Shia. Might as well let it die.
  • Deleted user 30 October 2012 21:43:58
    I wouldn't be at all surprised if they discarded the expanded universe entirely and did their own thing, making it less Epic Sci-Fi Fantasy and more Space Pirates of the Caribbean

    Apparently no Indiana Jones films planned, too many issues with Paramount and merchandising.

    Joss Whedon to direct a Star Wars film, how terrific would that be?
  • Deleted user 30 October 2012 21:49:44
    As much I loved the original films growing up, and have watched each one more times than I care to admit, the reality is that they are filled with continuity errors that can only be fixed by remaking 4,5,6 to the same qualities as 1,2,3.

    Anyone that has an eye for great production quality will have overcome the initial shattering of the legend they what for, and now see episodes 1,2, 3 as exceptional production quality family films that are great fun to watch and find something new every time(just like the originals).

    Hopefully Disney will by-pass the problems from 4,5,6 and make new versions of the films, rather than inherit (loveable)flaws and try spin 7,8,9 with a bobbin that had all its thread used in episode 6.

    For people still blindly believing 4,5,6 are superior to 1,2,3. I won't trash those historically great films. But do yourself a favour and watch all of them in numerical order(1,2,3,4,5, 6) or release order (4,5,6, 1,2,3) on blu-ray and you'll have to try hard to deny what you are seeing to keep that view (imho).

    Hmm they got Lucasarts as part of the deal if i'm reading Disney's statement correct. I hold a slim hope Disney have a better clue of what to do with the Lucasart's back catalogue than Lucas.

    Monkey Island/Pirates of the Caribbean cross over anyone?

    I can't see Disney doing much more harm to the Star Wars franchise than Lucas has. Maybe something good will come of it even if its just to some cool new Star Wars themed rides at the Disney's theme parks.
