The thing is, back in the 70s you could get away with being a minimal director like Lucas, because the actors were generally better.

Well my first thought on reading this earlier today was "Wait a minute. Todai is April 1st, right?"
That was my first thought too, I have to admit. Then I tried to figure out if there was a new Pre-Halloween Fool's Day, or something...

Agreed to a point. Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing more or less directed themselves, whereas Hayden Christensen and Temuera Morrison...not so much. However there's little excuse for how Lucas failed to direct a gifted actress like Natalie Portman and got such disappointing performances out of her.

I've read Lucas reflecting on that and stating that Ep I and II should have been the same movie and EpIII could have been two.
I remember thinking a while back that Ep. II should have been the first movie.

Just on general principles, I hope they go with a continuation rather than a re-boot.
Continuation now, reboot later. I think that's what they'll do.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

It's not going to be a reboot. Episode VII implies a continuation of the story in the same universe and timeline, albeit many years after JEDI.

I agree. I was thinking about this a few months ago. Many young actors are fine today for the films they are doing but they don't have the stage / theater experience the actors of old had, that, as older men, they could slip into a fantastic role and give it the necessary gravitas. Not sure how the actors we have now will be able to take on such roles in 30 years from now

Suffice it to say, I had an out of body experience when I heard the news. And all I ask is---no matter what the stories will be about, when they take place after JEDI and how action or character-oriented they wind up being---make sure someone else besides George Lucas directs them.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

For the PT I would put Ian and Ewan in this category.

The word "Disney" is enough to kill the excitement I should otherwise feel...

Oh, I have faith. But I saw Attack of the Clones. The odds of getting an A+ trilogy directed by Lucas himself are approximately 3,720 to 1.

Lucas says he is passing over to them the story treatments for 7,8 and 9...
wow great find! uploaded by starwars on Oct.30, 2012.

start at 1:35
Lucas:
"I have story treatments of 7, 8, and 9 and a bunch of other movies...I sort of moved that treasure trove...to Kathy."


Kathy:
"(we are)...sitting down with a couple of writers and starting to discuss ideas of what those stories might be."

Since Lucas says in this video that he won't be doing anymore I think he will really have a backseat and approval of script and then it will really be out of his hands as an Executive Producer. Someone else will run the show during preproduction, production, and post production.

Does this mean that Disney will hire John Williams to compose the score of the next film? That would be most interesting.

What are the legalities if they do not hire John Williams but use some of his score & themes in writing the new score for the 2015 film?

So Lucas has given story treatments for 'a bunch of other movies' to Disney that he has had the ideas to do for decades too. I wonder what some of those are. Maybe other franchises?
