    I can only see Disney taming and dumbing down the series in an attempt to pander to younger viewers. It will be an unmitigated disaster. Like think Phantom Menace meets the Green Lantern meets Mitt Romney's conscience, meets hurricane Sandy...and Skampoe is down to his last box of Little Debbie's coffee cakes...and the leche is spoiled cuz of the power cuz of the hurricane.










    That bad.

    well Avengers turned out dope, and Star Wars has been marketed towards kids since the beginning... but yeah it could go either way but I think it really depends on Lucasfilm, cuz I think Disney will let them do them.

    Think about this Rza directing a new Star Wars movie haha that'd be crazy

    Indiana Jones is also partly controlled by Paramount so Disney won't have complete freedom with that series without making another payout.

    This news is good news in my opinion. I don't see Disney fucking up star wars any worse than what Lucas already did with the prequels. With fresh new writers and directors I can only see good things to come with the next set of movies.

    Disney does a lot more than just kiddy flicks, they've distributed such movies as Pulp Fiction and City Of God through Buena Vista which is owned by Disney. Nerds get too uptight about Disney without knowing the facts. Yes Disney is famous for childrens entertainment but they've also put out a lot of content geared towards adults as well.

    Bottom line I don't see Disney fucking up Star Wars and I believe there are enough writers and directors out there that grew up on star wars to treat the property with the respect it deserves.

    as the resident SW geek, I give my stamp of approval to this move. what disturbs me tho is that lucas fears dec 21 2012 has built a huge underground bunker. this move raises my eyebrow. like he said fuck it time to pack it up. lol


    the new films i assume will involve luke and leia rebuilding the jedi order. han and leia's kids. lukes wife mara jade...

    A source close to the studio says the new movies are going in an all new direction and they will not be adapting any of the books.

    Mickey Mouse just got the wookie stamp of approval ... 'cause the guy who played Chewbacca in the original trilogy tells TMZ he's totally stoked Disney will continue the "Star Wars" franchise.

    We spoke with Peter Mayhew ... who tells us, I have no doubt Disney will respect and continue the legacy of Lucasfilm. I have worked with Disney for many years during their Star Wars Weekends Celebration and seen how much they love the films and the fans.

    Mayhew -- who currently runs the Peter Mayhew Foundation for special needs and at-risk children -- says he's impressed by the way Disney involved Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee in the "Avengers" movies. "[Disney] has an excellent track record for listening to the creator's voice."

    And Chewie ain't the only "Star Wars" character on board ... we also spoke with Ahmed Best -- the voice of Jar Jar Binks -- who tells us, "George has always been a hero and a mentor. I am happy that the saga will continue."

    Daniel Logan who played young Boba Fett in Episode II adds, "I think Disney acquiring Lucasfilm is a wonderful thing! There are exciting times ahead for Star Wars fans!

    As for Peter, all info for his foundation can be found on his website, Chewbacca.com.

    Mark Hamill Talks Star Wars: Episode VII

    As details continue to flood in regarding the just-announced Star Wars: Episode VII, EW managed to catch up with Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, who reveals that he was made aware of plans for a third trilogy last August.

    "[George Lucas] asked Carrie [Fisher] and I to have lunch with him and we did," Hamill says, "I thought he was going to talk about either his retirement or the 'Star Wars' TV series that I’ve heard about — which I don’t think we were going to be involved in anyway, because that takes place between the prequels and the ones we were in and, if Luke were in them, he’d be anywhere from a toddler to a teenager so they’d get an age-appropriate actor — or the 3-D releases. So when he said, 'We decided we’re going to do Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,” I was just gobsmacked. “What? Are you nuts?!” [Laughs]"

    Although Hamill learned of the plans for more films, he was as surprised as anyone at the announcement of Lucasfilm being bought by Disney when he read about it online yesterday. He also doesn't know what involvement - if any - he'll have in future Star Wars films, but he remains optimistic as a fan.

    "I can see both sides of it," he says. "Because in a way, there was a beginning, a middle, and an end and we all lived happily ever after and that’s the way it should be — and it’s great that people have fond memories, if they do have fond memories. But on the other hand, there’s this ravenous desire on the part of the true believers to have more and more and more material. It’s one of those things: people either just don’t care for it or are passionate about it. I guess that defines what cult movies are all about."

    Hamill reiterates that Kathleen Kennedy will be handling a lot of the work on the new films, leaving Lucas to his newfound retirement and plans for a charitable educational foundation funded by the multi-billion dollar sale.
