Anybody else jacked about Disney acquiring Lucasfilm and making a new trilogy without George f'ing it up?
Disney has done a great job with the avengers since buying marvel so there is a lot of promise.
I think disney has done great with marvel and so so with pixar. I am cautiously optimistic.
Excited, but I am cautiously optimistic. I am sure it will be good.
I'm in. I have a special attachment to the franchise because I loved it in my youth although I'm becoming an old man.
I agree with scottchap. I feel more confident that it's a Disney production.
Yeah. They have done a great job with Marvel so I hope they get the right director.

Right there with ya. The franchise is special to me as well. I even like the prequels with a few exceptions (Jar Jar Binks, miticlorians, ect.). I do think Lucas has made the franchise his own personal play thing. The fans revere it much more than him. He's made some goofy choices over the last couple decades. It needed a new voice. Here's hoping Disney gives it the respect it deserves.
Never watched the Star Wars movies. Not my thing. However I probably should watch them just for the surround sound experience.
what little mystique star wars had will soon be gone after Disney gets done pimping it out for all its worth.
ANYTHING is better than Lucas' lazy arse running things...
he shoulda done the whole 9 part "Opera" like Peter Jackson and the Harry Potter guys did it...one after the other. Instead, he's just been too danged lazy and let things languish for 30 years.
The ONLY SW that Lucas did worthwhile was Ep. III, and that was still a little too much cheese, but a million times better than I and II...
That said, as a huge fan, I'm excited for ANYTHING "Star Wars" related that's new and creative that's "real" live action...I don't really enjoy the animated stuff...

Disney has historically had mediocre sequels, but I think they realize that anything that doesn't do justice to the franchise will turn the diehard fans off and cost them a lot of revenue in the future, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
Yeah cause Lucas never really exploited the marketing or anything

I was very disappointed with the last three made. The whole story was how Darth Vader came to be and when he finally finished up, he failed to show how badass DV really was. I mean nothing to satisfy. I felt like I had eaten a empty taco shell. Shoot, with the exception of the short saber fight, he did not really let Yoda loose. Just disappointing all the way around. Hope Disney kicks ass with it.
I'm shocked. Your tweets indicated a totally different view. (G)
Lol. Star Wars was formative to everything I am today...just want them to leave the corpses of the first three alone.
I thought the look of Episodes I-III was outstanding. It was just the acting that sucked. Wooden. The guy that played Anakin in Episodes II & III was AWFUL. At least Lucas gave us Natalie Portman in a halter top to look at.
With Disney behind it, I'm cautiously optimistic, as some other posters. I hope that Disney doesn't "kidify" it too much. I'll hazard a guess that the inevitable Star Wars wing they add to one of their theme parks will be outstanding. Sort of a Star Wars Mecca.
Shane had Yoda underoos growing up I bet
Are you crazy? The prequels sucked balls and if they base the sequels on the books, it will only get worse.
Read this article on what we don't want to see in the sequels, and be disheartened:
Sadly pretty much all these scenarios are based on books that come after the events in RotJ.
Well I am sticking up for my fellow poli sci major and agreeing with you here.
Star Tours is still pretty meh (and infuriating for any real fan of the series with the way it lifts an enormous middle finger to the actual timeline) so it'd be awesome to get some good Star Wars attractions.
Hayden Christensen was pretty bad, but I think it might have been livable if he had ANY chemistry with Natalie Portman whatsoever. They looked about as in love as Muschamp and Clay Burton. How, with the resources LucasFilm had, they were satisfied with that product is beyond me.
Beyond excited is the feeling I have.
Just gonna new something all new, not.knowing how it has to end and all that.

I'm definitely Excited.
Okay so since people hate reading, most of the plot lines from after the original trilogy are the EXACT same as the stories from the original 6 movies.
1) blow up a super weapon a la Death Star
2) palpatine comes back, nearly wipes out everyone
There's a few more in the article but honestly I'm too depressed from hearing about those book plot lines to go back and finish listing.
