The more people who see the movie, the more money Disney will make. The more people who like the movie, the more people will see the next movies. If Disney is greedy as you say, than they will do their best to create an amazing movie that will revive the franchise.

Of course they are going to make more characters and more stories the more you have the more $ you get. I am just going to hate to see star wars be destroyed by Mickey.
Just like they destroyed Marvel, and Pixar? Because everyone knows that Avengers and Toy Story 3 were horrible movies that everyone hated.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

There's constant bitching about how awful the PT was but now people are afraid they will ruin the franchise? We've already had a film focused around a ten-year-old boy, a young queen who likes to dress up in over-the-top dresses with a silly comedy sidekick so I don't know if Disney can do worse. (Actually TPM is my fave of the PT but playing devil's advocate here...)

People like Kathleen Kennedy, Lawrence Kasdan and J.J. Abrams know what they're doing. I have faith the new movies will be okay.

Hell, they might even kick ass.
On the plus side, if you hate Disney Star Wars enough, it may cause you to like the Prequel Trilogy

They either go that way or they go the greedy way like I said.

Toy story 3 perfect example! They introduced them into a huge nursery full of other toys just so they could have more characters to sell. They are so predictable

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Toy Story 3 was a great movie, though. What does it matter if Disney wanted to sell more toys? They'd already been milking the Toy Story franchise for 15 years at that point....nothing changed.

Give up. He's convinced the movies will be terrible even though scripts haven't been written, actors picked, production design begun, etc....

Yeah, but most of the toys introduced in Toy Story 3 were already real toys almost forty years ago.

If you want to be the first kid on your block to own a rolly polly telephone or a Disco Barbie, be my guest.

I will admit, it will be weird to see a Lucasfilm released under anything OTHER than the 20th Century Fox logo.
True, disney intro will just look wrong
Don't worry. You've already damned the movies anyway.

Why don't you wait for one to be made and you know - see it, before crying in every post that Disney has ruined the franchise?
Just for the record, my original post had nothing to do with how awesome OR terrible the movies will be. I simply pointed out that the first 10 seconds of the film will be highlighted by a Disney banner and not a 20th Century Fox banner. I anticipate the Lucasfilm banner to remain as usual.

That is all.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Calm down and have a little faith. Episode VII will be awesome. I'm pretty sure of it.

After all, Disney owned Miramax at the time that Pulp Fiction was produced and released....and that movie is one of the best (not to mention most graphic and violent) films of the last 20 years. Disney's not going to dumb down, childproof and ruin the Star Wars universe any more than they ruined the Avengers or the Pixar films.

The only thing I'm concerned about is if they keep John Williams or not.

I think everybody on the planet would agree to keep Williams.

It's more a question of if he feels he's up for one more trilogy.

He better be.
