I am a fan of Star Wars. I think Lucas created this story, and it’s incredible. I would think that Disney and Lucas probably had many conversations on what would happen if Lucas was to sell it to them. I would think Lucas(the creater) is comfortable with what Disney had planned before he sold it, and I am sure he doesnt want to see his creation be turned to shit. So, I think it will probably be awesome. At the very least I hope it is. [/quote]
Apparently Lucas had the basic framework of the next three films in early development before he sold Lucasfilm to Disney. I guess they’re going to go with those, or something close to them, for these three films, the first of which is slated for 2015.
I also think it’s going to be more of this Jar Jar Binks Bullshit than more Vader-like sinister characters. I mean, the Sith are all gone now, right? Vader was the last of them once the Emperor took a long fall off a short plank. I know Lucas has zero integrity and hasn’t had any for a long time now, but is he really so low as to create some secret apprentice of the Emperor’s that no one but him ever knew about and is now out to destroy the people who destroyed the Empire?
The story is supposedly set after Return of the Jedi and will feature Luke and Leia and Han and all the other usual suspects. I wonder if any of the original actors will be involved.
I would surmise that the films will revolve around some story where Han and Leia have kids, like a lot of the books that came about out about them in the early to mid 90’s, and then the kids go on to be Jedis. Luke will be their Yoda/Obi Wan figure and they’ll fight some evil entity.
I hope whatever it is it isn’t as convoluted a plot as the last three seemed to feature at times. All the Senate/Republic/Separatist shit was a little more than the plot needed, in my opinion. I know the whole Rebel Alliance/Empire thing is pretty central to the original three, but it seemed a little overboard in the new ones.
