Who knows, maybe taking Lucas out of the picture could bring us something worthwhile. Some of the extended universe stuff was rather good.

I've been making jokes all day around the office here, but the truth is the that the separation from Lucas should only be good for the franchise. Get some new blood, new ideas in there. That being said, I'd be willing to bet that all of the extended universe stuff will be rendered non-canon after the release of Episode 7 and any further films. That kind of makes me sad because, while I didn't really get all that into the EU stuff, I loved Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy.

He's been picking away at the EU for years, which at one point was expressly official, then not, then official again...'Ol Retcon George, I call him.

I'm willing to let all of that go, even the Zahn stuff, if we maybe get something interesting out of the deal.

But Disney, I don't know, man...

You know what they should really do though...

They're honestly just beating a dead horse and have been for the past decade

So...whatever happened to the entire series being re-re-re-re-re-re-released in 3D? Godawful idea, but I think Episode 1 actually did pretty well at the box office? If they stick to the schedule, that would put Episode 7 in theaters around the same time as Empire, no?

Actually, I have no problem with this.

1. Disney is not as bad a film company as it would seem. Sure they are greedy but they make quality work. You DIDN'T want to see Wreck-It Ralph this weekend?

2. The work is now out of Lucas' grease stained hands. He can go back to eating ham while someone else who might give half a piss does something with the franchise.

3. There have existed whole worlds of novels written about what goes on in the post-"Jedi" world and some of them aren't that bad. They're not really hurting for good source material.

Lucas was beating a dead horse - but Disney has brought that horse back to life and it's super mutant AWESOME KICKASS horse.

If they .......:

1. Make a movie or series where Boba fett gets out of the sarlac pit

2. make a movie or series about Starkiller, Kyle Katarn, or Dash Rendar

3. start bringing the novels and games into standard canon in general

......I will be cool with Disney taking it over

I loved the Tron Movies, and i DID like John Carter. so i do indeed see a shimmer of hope in all this

I'm okay with this for a couple of reasons: it puts Muppet Babies one step closer to being in my hands and I'd like to see something new done with the series with a talented writing/production team (one that can actually write believable dialogue).

After the recent Sesame Street sex scandal the words "Muppets" and "Babies" are going to just sound wrong together for quite awhile.

I never in my life thought I'd have to read those four words together.

Timothy Zahn for Ep. 8 screenplay? Proper version of Young Indiana Jones (I believe Josh brought that up)? Lucas Arts games worth playing for once? Re-release of "Raiders" that actually has the correct title on the box? Complete and total ret-con of the "Clone Wars" show?

ANY OF THESE THINGS COULD HAPPEN IN THIS BRIGHT AND SHINY UNIVERSE. Very Happy

This could be good or bad. But probably bad(the film I mean). But who knows? Disney owns Marvel and I see no differences. So I think the fear will outweigh the fact that nothing will probably change.

I feel barely anything for that franchise anymore, but with George Lucas out of the director's chair, it might do well. When Disney got the rights to Marvel, they did an excellent job with it. So, I think they might be able to bring some new light into a franchise that is nearly dead. Also, J.J. Abrams is being set to direct and produce, and I am big fan of his previous works, so I at least expect it to be better than all of the prequels combined.
