    No idea how this will work out, but one positive is that Lucas won't be involved with it much.

    While it can be fun to hate on the new trilogy, Star Wars is still Star Wars. Without Lucas Disney could do a lot creatively and really take into account recent criticism. The possibility of them following the dark-reboot trend of recent superhero movies is enticing, and we know they'll be interested in the long term since they just bought the franchise. Either way I'll be there at midnight, lightsaber in hand, and if you judge me for that you can go suck a big one.

    I'm not a Star Wars freak but my brother is a pretty big fan and I am a fan, but it is almost a shame to touch a classic series like this. However, with todays technology, it could be CRAZY and even more realistic than ever before if they do it right.

    there are 3 more stories to film before they need to worry about a reboot.

    As a huge star wars geek, I already know generally what the characters and storylines might be.

    I thank my lucky stars Lucas is off this one. What a hack.

    How do you know? Are you talking about the expanded universe stuff (haven't read any of it) or did he talk about what his plans were previously?

    When he was younger George Lucas said that the story was all about Darth Vader..... The rise (new trilogy) the fall (original Star Wars) and his legacy. So I am assuming that is what will be the next series.

    Disney in control of it... You can count on even more merchandise, as if it weren't already saturated enough.

    I don't care about the merchandise, I'm just hoping they don't throw in more blatant attempts to appeal to kids (Ewoks, Jar Jar, that cartoon bullshit on TV).

    I think it would make a lot of sense to utilize expanded universe characters.

    I would have loved to have seen a movie about Han Solo and Chewie kicking ass across the stars as smugglers

    They're family friendly, not specifically aimed at kids. The biggest audience for the new trilogy was fans of the old trilogy. People who are absolutely not kids. He was trying to appeal to more kids by adding crap like Jar Jar.

    Well since Disney bought the rights I guess we can rule out seeing leya naked right? God damn Disney and their kid freindly bs.

    On a more serious note I have never seen a Star Wars movie, and I likely never will. Maybe it's because I was born in the 90's, maybe it's because I don't like green things, but more likely it is because I have seen a naked woman before.

    You realize how pathetic you sound, right? "I'm cool because I've never seen Star Wars." Enjoy the rest of high school.

    So I'm thinking that the next set of movies should be directed by Wes Anderson and star Bill Murray as Chewbacca.
