The last three were bad enough - can't think what Disney are going to do to improve things.

Nobody at Disney is a worse filmmaker than George Lucas post-Return of the Jedi. This has nowhere to go, but upwards.

Well, he sold Lucasarts entirely, but we all know the important bit, right?

I'm not sure if this is good or bad news.

I fear that this ruins the possibility of a watchable star wars tv-show from ever happening.

And will they please, please, PLEASE just make it stop?
Screw you all, and have a nice day!

Well, there goes the EU.
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle them?"

I quit all things Star Wars after the prequel trilogy came out, however, I have heard from numerous people that Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars was a pretty good TV show.

I'm a Tartakovsky fan, to the point where I saw Hotel Transylvania because I want him to have more movie chances in the future (and finish Samurai Jack). But I swore to never buy, read or watch a Star Wars thing again. That is one oath I've stuck with over the years and I made it because George Lucas is a deranged buffoon.

Now that he's not in control of the franchise anymore, I actually might soften my oath.

Yeah, but whatever idiot started that thread put it in the wrong damn forum.


Maybe a mod can just merge the two? Pretty please.

Well this sux but I knew we'd get more movies with this deal. I'm hoping the new movies are set a few hundred yrs after RotJ though so as not to null and void all my NJO, Legacy, and Fate bks I've spent so much $ on. That dumb Clone Wars cartoon ruined all my prequel HC bks I had.

Set between FotJ and Legacy or post Legacy is the only way the EU will survive this. Unless the guy writing the script is a freaking James Luceno who can integrate stuff without problem and have his epic story without steping all over the current stories.

Jar Jar Poppins? Star Wars fans go nuts over #DisneyBuysLucasFilm

news.com.au
October 31, 2012 9:35AM

Disney to make Star Wars Episode VII

"I'VE a bad feeling about this."

You and me both, Han.

Disney seems to be snapping up every memory fanboys and fangirls hold dear. First Marvel, then the Muppets and now Star Wars.

The fan community wasn't exactly happy with the last lot of Star Wars films, so the thought of Mickey Mouse and Co taking charge of the Millennium Falcon will resurrect fears of another Jar Jar Binks.

It's the stuff of Halloween nightmares.

Here's the best of the Twitter reaction.

- @RaymondKemp
There was a disturbance in the force like the voices of a million nerds were scilenced.

- Brian Flatley
No one obviously told #Disney “IT’S A TRAP!!!” #Disneybuyslucasfilm

STAR WARS EPISODE 7 RELEASE IN 2015! BUT IT IMPORTANT FOCUS ON ONE MAJOR DISASTER AT TIME!

- Pedro Montojo
#DisneyBuysLucasfilm Chitty Chitty Death Star

#DisneyBuysLucasfilm Jar Jar Poppins

#DisneyBuysLucasfilm Beauty and the Sith

- Giordano Ciampini
The Gundark's New Groove #DisneyBuysLucasFilm

Meet the Skywalkers #DisneyBuysLucasFilm

Pete's Krayt Dragon #DisneyBuysLucasFilm

Ackbar In Wonderland #DisneyBuysLucasFilm

Nothing warms the cockles of your heart like hearing your beloved childhood films and characters referred to as "an IP." #DisneyStarWars

So wait: Darth Vader is Luke's father and also a lion? #DisneyStarWars

This is just like that scene in Star Wars when the Empire gets bought out by an even bigger Empire. #DisneyStarWars

Somewhere, right now, someone is thinking of a way to get Jar Jar Binks into Song of the South. #DisneyStarWars

"Mr. Solo, my name is Nick Fury. I'd like to talk to you about something called The Avengers Initiative." #DisneyStarWars

The code name for Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm is Project Valor. (not kidding) #blueharvest

- Greg Linch
Working title for episode 8 --> Pirates of the Alderaanean: Davy Jones’ Locker Strikes Back.

To infinity… in less than 12 parsecs!

- Dale McGladdery
Let's face it, Lucas had already Disneyfied Stars Wars, anyway. This seems more up front.

TBH, it might actually not be that bad. Marvel = Avenegers etc, right? They did a good job with those. Not like I ever believed anyone would top a star wars feature after kotor 2 and 1.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
