    There is a whole series of books based on 10-12 year old Anakin & the same for the 10-12 year old Obi-Wan just as they start Padawan-hood

    It'll be interesting to see if Disney f's up the franchise more than Lucas did.

     

    I'm hoping for a more John Carter-ish trilogy but expecting a Little Mermaid version of Star Wars.

     

    Either way, for a franchise that was so great for so long, it's a pity to see how it was run into the ground.

     

    Help us Obi Walt Disney.  You're our only hope.

    well considering it's episode 7 that wouldn't make much sense:)

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    That would suck either way, but....

     

    If it's starting with Episode 7, it won't be about baby Obi-Wan and baby Darth Vader.

    I guess it won't be about much. I do predict teens singing and dancing though image

     

    We dont need casuals in our games!!! Errm... Well we DO need casuals to fund and populate our games - But the games should be all about "hardcore" because: We dont need casuals in our games!!!

    I think he meant we would see stories of anakin when he was a kid and stories about obi-wan when he was a kid.

    I'm kinda of looking forward to see what they do without George too.

    Umm...obviously you haven't following Star Wars much.

     

    1) Mickey Mouse Star Wars has been done forever.  Never been to Disney World at Hollywood Studios I assume?

     

    2) Because Lego guys as Star Wars figures is so much better...

     

    3) November 8th is the Angry Birds Star Wars....how different from your complaint.

    What does this mean for SWTOR?

    Prospects for SWG reboot?

    This is the best thing that could of happen, Disney maks some of the BEST movies and with top notch production.

    Marverls Avengers? yes that was Disney.  Disney will never make a R rated move but they sure as hell know how to make some kick ass rated PG movies., besides no Star Wars move was ever rated R, Disney is the best choice IMO, they are the Masters of fantasy hands down.

    I agree it was my favorite as well. There's no way Disney is going to touch that content, though.

    We can expect to see plenty of sequels following the formula of Episode 1, and a lot of Ewoks. Tons and tons of Ewoks.

    really depends on who they peg for director/writer.. although not the greatest movie I thought john carter was decent for a sci fi movie and shows they can still have some somewhat violent films from disney.. i'm just happy star wars will go on:) honestly though without george behind the wheel I'm actually very excited for the future of the series...

    HELL YEA. Get that crap out of here. That's where everyting started getting fishy and wonky. If they can use all *THAT* and encapsulate all the EU into "then" we can definitely expect great things from this new stuff.

    Considering how Disney loves Johnny Depp - I think he would make awesome sith... but it would have to be in The Old Republic Timeline image

    Edit. He might play Luke's son though... the sithy one...

    lol what was episode I, II, and III?.. honestly don't think in any way they could do worse.. i actually enjoyed them because I love star wars but really anyone behind the wheel aside from george I feel will do a hell of a lot better

    It also means cancellation of the supposedly Rated M star wars game, 1313.

    Realistically though, star wars clone wars to be shown on disney channel.

    Lucas himself already did that.....

     

    What it will probably turn into is a new movie every 2-3 years ad infinitum, ad nauseum.  That's what Disney does.  It oversaturates the market with it's offerings.  Pulls them for a little while when sales start to go down, and then rehashes them in slightly new formats.

     

    And we just keep on biting that poison bait.

    Disney can't screw up the Star Wars Movies more thane George Lucas has. He can't even follow his own Story

    well thats good news, the battlefront 3 part of that is pure speculation and I wouldn't want another Battlefront. I would want a whole new game, lets just say Planetside 2 with star wars skins.

    You are right, my bad. I was blinded by hate imagining the High School Musical cast in the Star Wars Universe. It also slipped my mind that Disney made Tron Legacy, I wouldn't mind seeing Jeff Bridges as a jedi master and maybe Olivia Wilde as a padawan ::drool::
