To hell with Mara and her "I wasn't on the dark side" nonsense. Her whole interaction with Luke in HTTE is stolen from Willow anyway.

Heard the news; knew I should come here and enjoy the drama.

Personally I think we're in for a lot of hilarity, one way or another. You know, just the other day, I was thinking how long it's been since ROTS, so I'm looking actually forward to it. We'll see. But if there's a fucking Jedi Princess who bursts into song, I'm outta there...
I would love a Star Wars Disney musical.

Maybe Disney will see fit to release the Holiday Special for download and/or on disc.
Well, it's been in The Vault long enough, I suppose...

The word is that they'll make 7, 8, and 9 and other films as well!

Disney is paying $4.05 billion to buy Lucasfilm Ltd., the production company behind "Star Wars," from its chairman and founder, George Lucas. It's also making a seventh movie in the "Star Wars" series called "Episode 7," set for release in 2015, with plans to follow it with Episodes 8 and 9 and then one new movie every two or three years.
emphasis mine
Wow.

Rebooting... Hadn't thought of that. Doesn't sound like the plan right now if they're doing a 7th installment. Eventually though? I can see it happening.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Wow, this took me by surprise as well. I think it's ultimately a good thing, as it's the best chance for new SW movies in the next 10-20 years and it takes the creative control out of GL's hands, so there's at least a chance the new films will be good.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

I don't know what to feel. My great love of Star Wars ended some time ago. I am thankful that Lucas came out with EP1 in 1977 and gave an 11 year old Aspie sci-fi super-geek something to get SUPER excited over, but the recent 3 were nothing to write home about (and Jar Jar had little to do with that, quit making him the scapegoat!). In general, concentrations of power are bad things so I am not hopeful.

I am not excited about the idea of a reboot with new younger, fresher, prettier casting and straying from Canon (as the Trek reboot was an abortion).

At the end of the day, all this is, is a money making venture which will give Disney the ability to sell more crap to consumers in their Disney Stores.

"So this is how a franchise dies. With a thunderous ringing of cash tills."

But seriously, we'll see how this all pans out. Still not sure how to take in the sudden announcement.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

This thread is moving fast.

Where does this place the long in development live action TV series?

Also, probably time to re-open a SW sub forum. I can only imagine the traffic of SW related threads is going to increase over the coming months.

Maybe the 7th movie will be a retelling of the Christmas special as Episode 7!

Getting De-Lucased is probably the best part about the news.

My guess, the new movies take priority.

If they do well, spin-offs will be all over TV. Whatever's already been developed in terms of concepts/artwork/etc will be rifled through for inspiration/anything that can work for the movies first.

And how will the fanboys react as it (and this is an if at this stage) drives a big wrecking ball through their extended universe?
The same way they reacted to TCW, only faster and more intense.

The one that's expected to premiere in 2009?

It will probably make its chances of happening more likely than less, but probably at a significantly reduced budget and scope. I think Disney's only significant cable network (outside of the Disney Channel, Disney XD, etc.) is ABC Family, so either that or ABC itself would probably be the most likely destinations.
