At least there won't be any more of this.
Probably NSFW, from South Park.

it won't do more damage than phantom menace and clone wars (3d version), they've set the bar so low that it can either be the same or better

well, I can say I'm some 90% sure it'll ruin the legacy at all!
and that's because media and industrial culture almost always produce things just for entertain the corrupted taste of the masses.
so, I'm really predicting a great disaster for the StarWars saga here... for my unhappiness...
that's it...:smoking:

If Mr. George Lucas wants it this way, and fully trusts someone else to do the legacy of Star Wars then I guess only time will tell if he made the right decision. Any other way he is pretty much tired of Star Wars and wants to go on doing something else. At least that's my perception of the man who made many dreamer and imagineer's happen. Also, if they are going to make the next three, why not having some original techniques of good old fashion film making happen to the next films? The first three were and still are the best, because of what they had to think and do to make it believable.

I'm either gonna enjoy them or go back to enjoying the star wars I love. But its free more chances for me to love so I am excited.

O wait, Lucas isn't writer or director? And the guy who directed Toy Story 3 is directing the first film? I AM excited :D No hoping they find a good writer/writing team, and he can direct live action as well as he does CG :D

Lucas being only a consultant is one of the best things ever. Nearly forgot that part 3 He created a beuatiful universe where I love many things, but his writing(sand eugh) and character directing(how do you make Samuel Jackson dull on screen?) well just sowed he doesn't have a hand at everything.

Honestly, they can't ruin the movies any more than the prequels did. If anything, it might be better. Get the right writers and directors, and you might make something nice.

The thing that worries me is their desire to either bring in the old cast and have Old Luke and Han and Leia... or re-cast them, which could be just as bad. I'd rather they tell new stories in that universe.

For me it's not about Disney, it's about continuing a beautiful franchise and fearing to ruin it doing so. And because the actors who used to play the most important characters are too old by now, they should recast them. It can't work.

I'm an Old Trilogy fan and I'm neutral about new movies coming out. It's all a matter of time how Disney handles the franchise and at least George can't ruin Star Wars anymore since the prequels.

Three new movies? I didn't knew they intend to publish all of them. I am pretty content with the first movies, their story is done, I don't know what they like to bring on screen then. All the ideas they had for further movies in the timeline sounds like crap to me. Better to set within the Old Republic, than after part VI.

I think no one would disagree that the legacy was already ruined after the prequels.

Regardless, I'm interested what they're planning to do now. Especially in their concept art I've always found Star Wars to be a great source of sci-fi design, so there's that to look forward too...
Also, George Lucas isn't directing so hopefully JarJar's role will be downplayed somewhat.

Everything that happens after the movies is already in the books. And they would have to cast the old crew, which I doubt will happen. I don't want to see anyone else as Luke and Han. This is never going to work.

To put it simply, no, I'm not worried and I am genuinely excited by 3 more films (i.e. another trilogy) by the simple fact that Disney isn't stupid. Simple as that. They spent 4 *Billion* dollars to buy this license and they know that, if they ruin it, that's 4 Billion (plus another Billion or more for making the films, shows, more toys, attractions and so forth) they've essentially flushed down into the waiting maw of the Sarlac Pitt. They have too much riding on this to screw it up and, unlike Lucas, they're not hell bent on doing it *their way* screw everyone else.

Their talking to the best writers out there to figure out how to make Star Wars work again; how to recapture the essence of the original trilogy that was so painfully lacking in the Prequels. Honestly if this had been Fox, Paramount, or any other company that had bought the license I would have called it a disaster. But Disney's proven, multiple times over, that they know what the hell their doing. (*Pause*) Except with 'Brave', that was just one stupid move after another.

Good points, but did you know that Jar Jar was actually put in from pressure from the studio and Lucas was against it? Studio wanted a 'fun' character the kids in the audience could like.

:iconroguewriter3201:
RogueWriter3201 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012
Sorry, but that's not accurate. They tried to say the same thing about 3PO back in '77 when some audience goers were put off by him. Just as before, Jar-Jar was George's idea. He's proudly admitted it and even references the 3P0 hoopla from back in the day when still hearing complaints about Jar-Jar.

As it stands, the only reason we've seen Jar-Jar in The Clone Wars was at George's behest. There's also the fact that much of Jar-Jar as we know him was created on-set through Ahmed Best and his performance.

Dave Filoni (Supervising Director) has stated, in a roundabout way, that he's no fan of Jar-Jar and the character has been exceedingly absent in the series as it's taken on a more dramatic tone. As for the Studio, George has *never* been at the behest of Fox or his own Production Company. They released the originals and prequels, but, aside from the OT, that was the extent of their "creative involvement."

However, now with Disney in full control and George merely serving as a Creative Adviser, I'm sure we will see the inclusion of family friendly characters; however, if so, they will be carefully considered and researched before being included.

With Michael Arndt writing the script for Episode VII, I have no doubt he will succeed where George failed the second time around with creating characters both old and young viewers can enjoy, as he proved with his characters for Toy Story 3 among others.

I'm passionate about Star Wars and Lucas already did pretty good job ruining it with episodes I-III alread. To be honest I'm slightly optimistic about future trilogy.

What saddens me though, is that they are abandoning rich extended universe of books and comics and going with new storyline.

Well I suppose if you'd go and film a book some audience would be familiar with it and would compare the book and film (just like it happens with LotR). But with totally new storyline you wouldn't know what to expect... and that's a great experience (if it's a good story of course).

Choice D. "Couldn't care less."

I watched the movies. I got some toys. I bought the movies. I watched the re-releases. I watched the prequels (and sadly, bought them too). I read some of the books.

Enough.

I for one is all done with SW and feel in much the same way one would be after eating ice cream non-stop for six hours.

...a literal case of "been there, done that, bought the T-shirt" --THRICE.

While I can't say my hopes for Star Wars media in general have been high in recent years, I am a bit relieved to know that Lucas won't be directing the next batch. Hopefully this means we can get a well-acted movie that retains that adventurous charm of the series in general while expanding on the universe.
