It was like the sounds of a thousand fans being ignored forever more in the pursuit of franchise mining Luke...

This worries me

Fuuuck...

What are the chances of Disney NOT trampling all over our treasured childhood memories with the next three SW movies...

More than Lucas already did, himself, with ep 1-3, I mean...

Oh save us from inventing taglines such as "Can Super-Donald rescue Leia's diamonds?"   :-X

They can't possibly do any worse than Eps 1-3.  As bad, maybe.  But not worse.

To which I retort thusly: "Do not challenge a board room full of executives with a franchise to cash in on."

Cases in point.. Dragonball Live Action.. and the ongoing cluster-F that is Akira (which has gone from a 200+ million live action to shopping around for a director/writer willing to work 40 to 60 million)

Point taken.  But at some point, you cross a line, and it just becomes garbage.  And there's no need to rank garbage against garbage, no point in contrasting or comparing.  It's all just garbage.  Kill it with fire.

Ah.. the 'Highlander 2+' argument.. very true.. the only way to fix it is to burn it to the ground and start from scratch.  I honestly don't see where the next three will fit in on the timeline.. further back in time?

Uhh, as I recall, Lucus himself was the reason why the prequels sucked so bad.  With him now out of the picture, we might actually get good movies.  Remember, Disney has been making the new Marvel movies and they have been all kinds of awesome.

According to Lucas, the next three were supposed to take place a couple decades after Episode VI and focus on rebuilding the Republic.  If so, I hope they go with some of the novel-canon involving the next Skywalker/Organa/Solo generation.

Sadly my understanding, second hand from a star wars fan friend, is that the books ARE considered to be canon.

Sadly?  I'd heard that Zahn's books in particular were pretty good.

Lucas has gone on record saying that only the movies and their licenses spin-offs (novelizations etc.) are canon and that everything else exists in a "parallel universe".  For reference and interest:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars_canon#George_Lucas_and_Star_Wars_canon

So, with there being a variety of different definitions on what is canon or not, it makes me wonder what is ahead for the Star Wars universe.  I am both intrigued and dreading it, so I guess all we can do is wait and see.

This.  Disney getting the rights to Star Wars could be exactly what the franchise needs to turn itself around.

Pretty sure that even Touchstone isn't up for that...  Although I bet it would get a nibble or five around here!

I agree, we'll have to see what they have in store for Star Wars. However I'm not holding my breath for anything resembling the comics or novels...My SO is going to have a fit when he hears about this. :(
