You might as well be complaining that The Goonies isn't adult enough.

If Disney does likewise with George they won't go far wrong.

I remember reading that part of the problem was that, according to one executive at least, every time Gene submitted a potential story, it ended up with Kirk on a grassy knoll in Dallas in 1963.

There is no chance of having an adult discussion with you.. So I shan't bother any further.

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 due in 2015 & more after...

This news is somewhat unbelievable. I'm not sure it's good news or not.

For one thing, the saga is essentially over. Both Luke's and Anakin's journeys are complete; what more is there to tell? Unless they're going to adapt one or more of the novels, or do a pre-prequel. Now that would be interesting! Going back to the dawn of the Sith!

The original third trilogy (7,8,9) was to be set after the events of 4,5,6 (first three films made).

Amazing!!!!!!!

You mean in chronological order?

How did they ever come up with something as game changing as that?

Thanks for the heads up!

Context is all - but thanks for the subtle irony....

Luke story hadn't finished, he could go on to train more Jedi.

Han & Leah have kids

It's not a fail at all. It's a t-shirt to buy. Deliberately to wind up fans.

With Disney buying Star Wars, Donald Duck will now have four nephews. Huey, Louie, Dewey and Chewie.

---------- Post added at 10:39 ---------- Previous post was at 10:37 ----------

In the new Disney Star Wars the baddies will waddle and talk with a lisp.

They've gone over to the Duck side.

Next you'll be suggesting that one of those kids turns out to be a sith and gets killed by the other..

Yep I'm a big fan of the star wars novels (currently reading Mercy Kill) and first thing in my head when I heard the news was which book sequence will they follow? If they went for the Yuuzhan Vong invasion spread over 3 films then they could use the original actors as they'd all be about the right age (not gonna imagine though how many kids would be in tears when one of the main fluffy characters gets killed)

Talking of kids and Star wars I was 8 when the original film came out and I remember sat there in a cinema in South Africa staring at this wonderful universe unfolding.. I think it shaped my film choices over the years and although in the late 90's Ep1 was dreadful and the series was only slightly redeemed by Ep2 it did eventually get back on track with the 3rd film.

I'm looking forward to what they may come up with

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm, Star Wars Episode 7 due in 2015 & more after...

I'd say this is the best that could've happened to the Star Wars franchise.

Disney knows how to retain character's integrities,they know merchandise,they have experience with franchises and have the financial clout to take SW to the next level.
Having secured the rights to George's outlines for Episodes 7-9 is also very good news.Lucas staying on as a creative consultant means that these news instalments will feel like SW movies.

Also being a fan of Avatar,and seeing that as the 21st Century SW,I'm obviously very happy with the fact that there are now 2 great SyFy franchises to look forward to

I will also predict right now that 2015 will break all BO records:

Star Wars Episode 7 3D
Avatar 2 3D
Avengers 2 3D

The year the Box Office exploded.
