Disney: you'd better not screw all of this up. Don't take something a lot of us have cherished since we were old enough to write the alphabet and tie our shoes and run it into the ground because you want to pimp this franchise to death and put out a hundred new BluRays.
You mean like Lucas himself?

I just can't picture Disney being any worse than Lucas in this regard. Though if they wanted to release the Original Unaltered Trilogy Remastered on Bluray, I don't think anyone would complain.
I wouldn't argue Lucas didn't stink some things up when making the Prequel Trilogy, but at least it was his creation, he still owned it and hadn't yet handed it over to another media giant to do with as they saw fit. Disney's capable of great filmmaking. They're also capable of complete and utter tripe when all they focus on is disc sales and saturating the market with product.

Time will tell. As I said: cautiously optimistic. But Disney needs to be careful that they don't repeat George's past mistakes or screw up even worse than he could. If Marvel is any indication, we should be alright. But these are also the people who greenlit 101 Dalmatians 2: Patch's London Adventure.

Disney doesn't want to flood the market with Star Wars so having a film every summer is COMPLETELY logical...Star Wars films are meant to be built up to...they're treating it like just another franchise by releasing one every year. It's different than the Marvel movies.Don't get me wrong, I hope they're good. But it is turning Star Wars into just another franchise.

The people who allowed 101 Dalmatians 2 are no longer at Disney. All those direct to DVD sequels were stopped whn John Lasseter began the head of animation.

Good.

My faith in the Mouse just went up a couple of notches.

Hype does not equal good storytelling.

Sure, there's always been a lot of excitement for new Star Wars. It's understandable seeing as Lucas was only able to muster six movies from 1977 to 2005. And yeah, there was a nice event factor that came with each film, but let's not kid ourselves. The event factor did not produce good movies. In fact, the event factor is about all The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones had going for them.

If Disney can produce good Star Wars movies at this pace, then I say let them.

So these movies would be the Jedi Knights version of 300... Han Solo prequel... etc?

Filling the time between releases of the sequel trilogy releases?

Re: New 'Star Wars' movies will arrive every summer following 'Episode

As always, I just want good movies. Thus far, I'd call about 33% (and that's me being generous) of the Star Wars movie "good." I have very little faith in this franchise, and I've never really understood all the love it gets, but there is a shortage of space-based scifi, so I'll give it a shot.

Re: New 'Star Wars' movies will arrive every summer following 'Episode

Well if nothing else, the prequels have given Disney a really good guage for what NOT to do in a SW movie. Obviously they'll never admit it, but I'm sure thats what's in the back of the mind of everyone who's working on these movies.

Re: New 'Star Wars' movies will arrive every summer following 'Episode

Disney normally thrives on kid-friendly characters like Jar Jar, but let's hope they take a different tack with the new films and - if they stick some kid- and family-oriented CGI characters in there (a given) - that they're at least a little more edgy and sophisticated than that.

I only hope they steer clear of the Skywalker family and give us new characters.

I love all the Star Wars films, prequels and all, so I am actully hoping that Disney doesn't just decide to ignore what Lucas has accomplished. They need to respect what has already been put on film, whether or not those movies met with approval from every aging fanboy. The prequels have a huge contingent of fans and were very successful, so what I don't want to see are Star Wars films trying to alter what was Lucas's story. It's his universe from top to bottom, Disney needs to still respect that.

If they're talking about releasing a movie every summer then their mind is on quantity over quality. As long as people keep buying tickets, does it matter how much they complain about it being bad?
