This thread is not a joke. George Lucas just sold Lucasfilm Ltd., IL&M, and Skywalker sound to Disney and they have revealed plans to continue the Star Wars film franchise. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers," Lucas said in a statement. "I've always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime". So what are your thoughts and reactions?

EDIT: well it looks like I have been beaten to it in an existing thread. I'm sure there's a mod somewhere sensing a disturbance in the force and is coming to shut down this Rebel station.

This is depressing, yet unsurprising. Which is even more depressing!

How can star wars possibly continue .... The empire is destoryed and the republic is restored nothing more to add to that.

I was just about to start a thread for this, haha.

I'm going to wait until some plot details leak. If it's based on the Extended Universe it should be okay, but if it's a completely new plot, I may lose my shit, and not in a good way.

Yeah, I threw this in le old Star Wars thread since that covers everything. But I'm still sorting out my feels about this. Most of me is optimistic actually.

I think this is big enough news to warrant it's own thread, at least for now.

The only reason Disney are doing this is for the $$$ , I can see them focusing on how big a spectacle they can make this rather than how good a movie they can do.

I don't see how anything could be as bad as the prequel trilogy but I have had my expectations lowered before.

I'm most worried about the existing EU stories. As long as Mara Jade exists in some shape, I'll be okay. :)

Lucas isn't even head of Lucasfilm anymore. I doubt he had much involvement.

I sense a disturbance in the force. George has said he will not do anymore sequels, yet he is still on the creative board for the new movies? and they're planning on going past 9? WHAT THE FUCK? This will be shit. Star Wars is forever ruined. FUCK THE WORLD. This has to be a hoax, right??

I would really like to be happy about this and be like "HECK YEAH, MORE STAR WARS MOVIES!" but there's something holding me back. Well, maybe I'll be more excited in 2015. It's too early to tell now.

I want Thrawn.


Thrawn would be nice, too. But I'm not my getting my hopes up too far.

Now that the EVIL corporation of Disney owns Star Wars, what can us loyal fans expect? No violence? No sex? No thrill? This will be shit, like the first 3 Spiderman movies. Fuck. I'm going to go smash my head in the wall. I'm so pissed now. Awww.....Fuck! FUCK ME! Someone prove me wrong. George can't be completely confident. No more Kenner action figs? No more Lego Star Wars? Everything is shitty shit shit. awww.....Fuck. Please, if they do do 7,8,9, please may Mark, Carrie, and Harrison be in them. Even if Harrison doesn't like Star Wars, and I hope he doesn't die in the next 7 years. Oh Fuck

Best case scenario: adaptation of Heir to the Empire series.

Worst case scenario (and most likely): completely new story arc that absolutely rapes the Extended Universe canon.

Wasn't the Avengers Disney?

I doubt the original cast will return, especially Harrison.

Actually, it would be awesome if they could set it in the future and have it be about a 20 year old Ben Skywalker. His story really hasn't been told yet, so honestly they could do whatever they want there (within reason).

I hope it doesn't totally mess up EU canon. I don't even have feelings to describe how that would make me feel.

They were blockbusters in terms of budget and media hype but they tried to stick to the original story in parts at least, and there were some bits thrown in to satisfy the hardcore fans. Lucas had his reputation to consider when making the prequels. Disney don't care so much, they know we'll all hate them for doing this, but they also know how to make an insane amount of money from a film and that's what they'll do if this goes ahead.

The last good Star Wars thing was the Family Guy versions, and now they're going to ruin that.

I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan by the way, I just hate Disney!

Lucas clearly has no problem fucking with canon. He destroyed Boba Fett's backstory in the prequels, and the Mandalorians and IG-88 with the fucktarded Ahsoka Tano shitfest of The Clone Wars. I'm really worried that the entire canon will get thrown aside for some directors shitty power trip.

Unless Kevin Smith directs it. Please God let that happen.

He already fucked him up once. He'd do it again without any hesitation.

Don't get your hopes up, she might not be in it.

Or Megan Fox could play her :P
