I know many will scream and complain, I'm just glad there's more Star Wars coming our way :D

    Someone has to take over. George is, what, closing in on 70?

    Not for the first time tonight I will say again, I would rather have a new star wars film from the people that brought me the avengers and toy story 3 than from the people who brought me the phantom menace any day.

    I'm actually enjoying the reaction some of my friends who hardcore SW fans are having...
  • TALON_UKTALON_UK0 Posts: 0Member
    Aye, tentatively positive about this after an initial knee-jerk reaction of,

    "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo!"

    Even a little excited, let's face it the prequels were not exactly up to the same classic quality as the original trilogy, maybe some fresh blood behind the camera could reinvigorate the franchise. After all the Clone Wars has gone a long way towards redeeming the prequel era and shows how good the franchise can be in fresh hands. So this could be a good thing or an unmitigated disaster, too early to say either way yet.

    Quoted for agreement. I cannot believe the bitchiness I've been reading about this.

    So? Walt Disney died in '66. Did someone take over Disney after that? A shame they do not find someone to remain separated...

    Oh well, this change, we can only live with it.

    I've never been a big Star Wars fan, so it's not a big blow to me. :p

    (not completely sure I understand what you mean :) ) Yes. Many people, (Roy Disney, for one) have lead the Disney Empire. Some lead well, some not so well. When there's a changing of the guard they usually go through a bit of slump, and they end up with odd things things like "John Carter". Not horrible, but terribly mismanaged, so it bombed.

    I am probably not the average fan. I did not think the new trilogy was that much of a disaster. Episode I and III both had some great moments. Episode II was pretty bad though. That said, all the stuff that has been made on the star wars universe by other people than George Lucas has been good to great. The current animated series is actually really good, and some of the games were awesome. Not having Lucas doesn't bother me at all. From what is written on the news pieces, Lucas will have an advisory role only, which is also not bad. You don't want a nobody to come in and crap all over the universe that has been established. My only real concern about a new trilogy is what exactly are they going to use as material.

    Apart from all that, I think this is great stuff. I actually thought that we were not going to have anything really substantial happening again from Star Wars for a long time apart from the TV series they have in the making. Still, I wish they would make either a Trilogy based on the Knights of the Old Republic games, or even better, a miniseries :)

    Im SO EXCITED about this, I think its great that the franchise will have some fresh blood, I will watch ANY star wars movie, regardless of quality. I couldnt be happier.

    Finally, new Star Wars movies!
    The second trilogy wasnA’t that bad, but wasnA’t that good too. LetA’s see which will be the focus of this new trilogy. I would like to see what happened before Luke restabilished the Jedi Order. I have a comics trilogy which focuses in this era, where the clonned emperor reborns, Leia has twins, and Luke goes to the dark side. It was well developed. :)
    Anyway, letA’s see were Diney goes with the franchise. Hopefully, it wonA’t be a reboot, it wonA’t be about Leia, Luke and Solo childhood, and it wonA’t be about the Ewoks...
    Aaaaaaannnnnnddddd... HOPEFULLY we wonA’t have to see those dammit and stupid crossovers coming to life:

    Darth Vader x Hulk
    Palpatine x Iron Man
    Mickey x the Dark Side
    And so on....

    Think about Mickey as Yoda, Donald as Solo, Pateta as Skywalker and Bafo as the Emperor! :o

    Just make sure that George won't be directing these movies again.

    Now, now.

    It's "NnnnooooOOOOOOOOOoooooooo!"

    And, yes, quite a few people have been complaining about it.

    Me, I love the universe Lucas created--and many of his additions to it even in the recent three films have been genius. Unfortunately, his knee-jerk need to be in Total Control over everything (witness demands for endless re-renders of Yoda at the end of Episode II) really did damage to the second trilogy. It's hard to do, but he needs to put the universe into someone's competent hands and step back.

    That said, I'm VERY MUCH looking forward to new stuff!

    I'm looking forward to seeing more Star Wars films. We've had fifty years of James Bond, nearly fifty of Doctor Who and forty odd years of Star Trek so having forty odd years of Star Wars works for me.

    Folks, you all seem to forget the most horrible thing that comes along with nearly every Disney movie:
    The SINGING!!! Do we really wanna see dancing and singing clonetroopers or a duet between a jedi and a sith ?!? :D


    ...Well at least they anounced EP VI(I) :) ...
  • ViperViper587 Posts: 457Administrator

    Not to mention almost 70 years of Gojira.

    I'm not that concerned about Disney making the Star Wars films. Think of Tron Legacy, it might not have been the greatest film of all time but it certainly wasn't cheesy and it wasn't dumbed down and it's a Disney production.
