WTF??? I'm still trying to work out if this is some sort of Halloween joke or something? A casual search on my phone shows an article mentioning Ep.7 in 2015.

I'm in two minds about this. The Disneyfication of SW is a terrifying thought. But LFLs movie output and drop in quality since 1989s Last Crusade makes me welcome this buyout! It's the kick in the pants it needs. Lucasfilm, time to stop twiddling your thumbs in the years between projects and get to work.

After Eps 1, 2 and 3, I certainly don't think Disney could do any worse. Pixar seems to be allowed creative freedom, but the SW franchise really needs a guiding hand back on track. Interesting news...

Mike

This is good news to me but why Ep7 while there are so many other adventures besides what happened with the Skywalkers. Old Republic is the way I wish they would go BUT anyway, at least they are going to make more SW movies and without Lucas meddling with the storylines and trying to add in another Jar Jar Bings, I think its going to be sweet!

We are of like minds. I think they chose to move on Ep 7 because of the advanced age and declining health of the original cast. JK
but...they probably are the right ages for the storyline to continue. Im happy with all of it.

With the next movie out in 2015, they could drag Carrie Fisher into a Gym, feed her water and fish for the next year and she should fit right into that slave girl outfit.

Have you guys seen Carrie's live show? I missed it when she was here, but caught it on cable.'Wishful Drinking' is SO funny! She is quite a personality and had me in tears of laughter.

I still think this is a good thing for SW. Get The Picard guys to write it, Peter Jackson to direct and Ep.7 will be a cracker!

Dang it! Yall beat me to it lol!
Yeah on the force.net, Lucas really did sell for 4billion cash and stocks.
I just cant wait til 2015, i want it now! HEhehe, all of the books out there to be made etc...
I dug a little deeper, and it is written that after the initial 2015 release, there will be a new film every 2-3 yrs, also a live action tv show!

I hate Disney, which is why I guess my rant seems so "anti-deal". I would guess the only silver lining of this cloud is that they approach Joss Whedon to write and direct the geriatric adventures of the Skywalker/Solo clan. I mean, with the age of the actors, what stories could they possibly do?

They'll have cameos mostly. I haven't read the books but as I understand it, Ep.7 on, continue the story with Han and Leias offspring.
Lets be real about this Gents. Disney will continue the story line for years...which is great because a lot of the content is already written and even if they decide not to follow it verbatim, they'll follow the direction.
I love and hate Lucas like many of you guys. He salvaged what would have otherwise been a nightmarish childhood for me. But this is also the guy who made it abundantly clear who the franchise belonged to and for whom he made Eps 1-3. Not for us.
Just consider Disneys quality of films. Great stuff! If you exclude 'John Carter', which is easy to do cuz no one saw it. We can only hope the lesson was learned.

Default Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm??!!!??? No kidding!

For decades we've seen sporadic output from George and what we did get in recent times were soulless, badly acted, CGI-psychotic movies that left most of us cold. The way I see it, Disney's go for it attitude will let the franchise breathe again without old George stifling it's every move. I've always wondered why it took him decades to produce anything new? I mean, WTF, really?

Disney seem keen to leave ILM operating as normal, so with Pixar in the mix it won't be lacking in the visual dept. Dammit, let directors like Peter Jackson, Brad Bird, Ron Howard have an episode to direct and inject some of the fun back into the franchise. Hell, if they really want a hardcore SW trilogy, let Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron loose!

Oh yeah, logically, being post Ep.6, they'll ditch the pre-ANH time line. We're over it.

Mike

Immediately after the news of the sales to Disney was announced. Immediately, they announced Ep7 for 2015, so I guess Lucas already have the story written out for the next trilogy like what the most recent io9 website mentioned. I am glad they are not going for the Zahn books nor any of the stupid novels about Yuzon Zong (spelled wrong on purpose) shits. http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit.../news/?a=69464

This bit of news is sweet! Disney is planning to release more SW movies besides the next trilogy. I think Joe Johnston's wanting to make a Boba Fett movie might come into fruition after all? I seriously hope they don't over look the Old Republic. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/disney...210830937.html

Will this means we will get to have more SW model kits? Possibly from Dragon Models considering they took the Avenger's license. SW license I know are expensive like fuck but I think Disney will be just as bad.

Anyway, its a good news after all!
