Side question - do you think now that Star Wars is Disney property we're likely to see the tv series emerge at last? Or is it even more dead now?

Re: More Star Wars films announced

They claim they've been working on it with more than fifty writers from all over the sci-fi/fantasy world submitting story treatments, but who knows now that Disney's in charge. If you ask me they'd be fools to turn down the money they could reap from a live-action TV series, but as of right now I'd have to say the show's status exists in some sort of pre-production limbo.

Hooray, more money to throw at them! Disney is worse than Lucas!
Whose worse, the film company that keeps making movie after movie, or the fans that keep going and going?
They wouldn't get made if there wasn't a market.
Lucas said he would do six movies and then stop.

Disney's middle name is 'sequel'.
So TV shows, comics, books, endless amounts of merchandise, that wasn't about making money?

And why is it so surprising or wrong that Disney gets something for their 4 billion dollar investment. It wasn't for THX 1138 the movie.

Well it couldn't be worse than the empty black suit he was in TPM... he epitomizes everything that was awful about the PT.

AICN says the first movie will star Yoda. I remember Lucas mentioning doing a Yoda movie set hundreds of years ago back around 2005.
Yes. At one point, he also said he wrote stories for a movie just about Wookies, and a history of the droids. I imagine these are among the "other treatments" he turned over to Disney.

Willow - Birch - trees. The third movie could be Elm, then Oak, then to add a twist we go to - Bamboo.

I thought Darth Maul was the only good thing to come OUT of the prequels myself.

Screw character development-- he was dark and scary and straight-up evil like the best of the OT villains, and he commanded the screen in a way no other character in the prequels did.

No, no, awful. Lucas is ALWAYS WRONG, you see?

BTW Willow now insists that you call him Thorn Drumheller.

The best OT villains had character something that Maul never had and which Dooku and Grievous had in spades.
