Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

The good: Lucas not directing or writing.
The bad: Disney in control of who directs and writes.

The unknown: how this will affect current licensed tie-ins like the MMO and cartoons.

Disney successfully brought back The Muppets. Surely Star Wars can't be that difficult to manage!

On the upside, this opens the possibility of finally seeing the theatrical versions of the OT restored and released. Disney must know there's a market out there for it and they don't have the personal stake in keeping them locked away that Lucas does. Wouldn't that be a treat.

Im in shock that Lucas would sell out to Disney,
Because of course George Lucas would never compromise his artistic vision for the sake of money. Everyone knows he's an uncompromising artiste. That's why he thought them tooth and nail when they tried to get him to insert characters like Jar-Jar Binks into the series.

ETA:

While I'm not fan of yet another round of corporate mergers and ownership centralization, it's only fair to note that the Walt Disney Company seems to have developed a track record of successfully managing major properties. Pixar has continued to thrive since becoming a Disney subsidiary. As mentioned above, Disney successfully revived the Muppets from deep freeze last year. And perhaps most notably, Marvel has had its greatest success under Disney in the form of The Avengers this year. So if Disney can do well by Marvel, I think they can probably do well by Star Wars.

Though it'll be weird seeing a Star Wars movie start out with Cinderella's Castle instead of the 20th Century Fox searchlights....
It would be classy of Disney to turn that into Princess Leia's castle on Alderaan instead.

Correction, Jason Segel brought back the Muppets after Disney sat on the property for 20 years not knowing what to do with it.

No, Disney will just put the movies into "the vault" and only release them for sale every 5 to 10 years.

Well, maybe Jason Segel should write the new Star Wars movie too! Star Wars: A Rock Opera

And how would that be any different from Mal Reynolds?

Me, I'm calling BS on this. Even if they started filming right this minute, there's no way they could get a film ready for release by 2015. Blockbusters, SW films especially, take years to make.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Disney fans have wondered why there is not a full Star Wars park. Instead of that announced Avatar land. There will surely be Star Wars one at some point now. With the Avatar deal maybe scrapped. That never made any sense. It was one successful film with sequels years away. Plus DIsney does not even own that. Now it owns SW and that has tons of material to develop a park around.

I knew the Fillions fans would chime in, but I'm sure Disney will be looking for moderately or very big movie actor names, Jennifer Lawrence and Anthony Mackie are the type they'd go for. Rosenbaum has done some movies, I'd say he's the lower range of movie notoriety to be considered for such an incredibly high profile role that everyone will be freakng out over, for good or ill.

And they'll look for actors around age 25 for Luke & Leia, and 30-35 for Han and Lando.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

According to the article, they want to make "Episiode 7" and a lot of other movies within the franchise, so more Ewok Adventures and whatnot. No mention on whether or not Ep. 7 will be part of another trilogy.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

That's a pretty damn quick turn around, in my mind... Unless they already have scripts in draft/development.. Or then again, maybe that doesn't matter...

I don't want to see original roles recast... Unless Mark Hamill is in there playing "wizened old Jedi Master," I'd rather see this take place farther into the future... Technically speaking you could have the droids and Chewie of course, but there's no way Ford will do it and, not to be too indelicate here, but I don't think Carrie could hack it.. Just my opinion, of course...

I'd rather see a, ahem, "next generation of Jedi" twice removed, dealing with some new threat to the Republic...
