I can't imagine they would change that... if so, they wouldn't be calling it "episode VII."
They won't change it. The trilogies have to flow together like a nine-part Saturday morning serial from the thirties or forties so even though Lucas won't be calling the direct shots anymore he'll have enough stroke and say over the proceedings that he'll get his way on certain things.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I'm not hoping for anything from the EU to make its way into the new films. Generally speaking, I have a greater preference to see elements from the Clone Wars cartoons, such as Ahsoka or Ventress, than elements from any of the books or comics. But on the other hand, I'm not predisposed to resist elements from the EU. It will all come down to the specifics of how the new films play when I'm sitting in the theater.

How dare they! Disney clearly has no regard for the intricacies that are Star Wars. It's like they just took the franchise, tossed it to the ground and pissed all over it. This is an outrage! Any true fan should boycot this film.

Hey, it's about time someone started the Inevitable Rant.

Unfortunately, it is true. Change the font (or font size) and somebody will complain that they "raped my childhood".

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I can see an old Luke in the hermit obi wan role. Twin kids of han and leia makes sense as leads..boy and girl for more appeal. Not sure Disney would have a hero falls to dark side story line. Perhaps a cloned emperor as villan with a cloned vader....

Or since.it often seems Disney hates parents.... Luke's teenage son raised by aunt leia who has daughter. Han and Luke apparently died years ago on secret mission. New sith lord arisesand kids engage. Turns out to be Luke who is brought.. back.from dark to light by his son. Puss off all the old.guys like me.but since.you are targeting kids 7 to 25 you are set

I think a false assumption is being made here, not just by you, but by a LOT of people. Disney did not purchase Star Wars. They bought Lucasfilm. When Disney owned Miramax, they didn't suddenly start Disney-fying Hellraiser, or the Kevin Smith movies, or any of the other very UN-Disney movies that they released during that time. I'm not saying that Disney will have NO input - Star Wars is a big property that they have in their own theme parks - but Lucasfilm will almost certainly keep its own character, and if we don't get the 20th Century Fox fanfare, we will almost certainly get the Lucasfilm logo between the Disney opening and the opening crawl.

You know they may not even use the Disney logo for Star Wars products. I mean, they could always use Touchstone.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I imagine the Walt Disney logo will show up on SW toys and collectibles in the future, even moreso if the Disney people also decide to buy the Hasbro corporation which makes most SW-related merchandise. It might be relegated to small print on the backs of the packages and at the very bottom but it'll probably be there.

Regardless, Star Wars films are no more graphic then Pirates of the Caribbean.

That'd be my preference as well. The Clone Wars universe has been very strongly presented. If the mentality that brought it to light is applied to the new films, they will do just fine.

I hope they have Palpatine in it. He's the best one out of The Star Wars.

How about it writes itself in the Disney cursive as it opens?
