Google Image what Hamill and Fisher look like now. There is not enough slim-fast in all the world.

they'd get in good with the fanbase by OFFICIALLY de-canonizing the prequels
The fans are even less important to Star Wars than they are to Star Trek.

Disney just spent 4 Billion buying the franchise; half of which is the prequels. You think they are going to purposely devalue them in any way, shape, or form?

This. Whether we like them or not, we're stuck with them.

How much of an effect would the prequels even have on episode 7? assuming of course its set some point after episode 6.

Whedon for Episode 7 or 8!
Well, he's a little too busy to do episode 7 with a little art house film he is making at the moment called 'Avengers 2' due to be released 2015 also.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Star wars 7 is probably the first of three parts of the Jedi wars that were mention in one of the Star wars movies? But I can't remember if it was episode 1 or 2 that is was mention in.

Well de-canonizing them doesn't mean that there not out there making money from them. Does the Trek animated series' non-canon status mean they don't get money from the DVDs?

It would be a bold move that would show that they care about getting back disappointed fans, and would clear the way for a prequel re-make.

George Lucas will sooner win a Best Director Oscar and stop wearing flannel. You not liking them doesn't invalidate the films any more than me liking Enterprise makes it the most beloved Trek spinoff.

For one thing, I'm fairly certain you imagined such a reference. For another, how exactly would characters in episode 1 or 2 be able to mention events in episode 7, which from their perspective, wouldn't occur for at least 35 - 40 years?

Time Travel. Just ask the multiple directors/writers in Star Trek how they managed to get around that problem.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This news really gives Star Wars fans a new hope for a really good trilogy. I just hope that the Disney Empire doesn't strike back with inteference from their executives. It wil be nice to see the Jedi return to the big screen

Yes, because seeing an older couple together on screen is so disgusting.
