    2. Everyone in nerd-dom lost their shit when Disney bought marvel comics. But the first major thing they did as Disney/Marvel was the avengers. The last thing Lucas did with the star wars franchise was the prequels. Between the two (and I’m more surprised than anyone that I’m saying this) but I have far more faith in what Disney might do with it than Lucas. At least based on their recent histories.

    True on Marvel.

    Pixar is still a subsidiary of Disney and they continue to produce good films as well.

    I do feel that way, but that’s not my quote. Walker you are right, Pixar has done a great job of making very good movies and still living under Disney’s umbrella. Although the rash of sequels that are starting to come out is a little disheartening. I don’t see how, given Pixar’s historic run with great one off movies, they see the need to revisit Monster’s Inc. and Finding Nemo. The Toy Story sequels were both well done, but these other movies are well loved and should exist in their own vaccums.

    I’d really like to see something set in the Old Republic. The Revan story is pretty much already written.

    With such a huge fan base having read the many novels that have come about after the movies, I wonder how much, if any, the movies will draw from the books.

    When Episode 7 is released my son will be almost 6. I will get the chance to introduce him to the Star Wars universe in the theaters first run.

    I am looking forward to that.

    Exactly!

    I’m excited to have two boys that get to grow up experiencing a new Star Wars trilogy. And they’re gonna need someone to go with them to the midnight release parties! :D

    I would support a Kickstarter that ensured there would never be another space wars movie.

    You know, I recently saw Star Wars for the first time (at age 33). I thought it was going to really rip my face off, but it seemed like it should have been called Desert Talking rather than Star Wars.

    Darth Mouse. Only you could be so bold. The MPAA will not sit still for this. When they find out that you attacked a demographic mission….

    My older brother and I grew up with the movies and the action figures. Star Wars was definitely a formative part of our childhood, so we actually scheduled a call last night to discuss it.

    There’s that fear of having our childhood memories messed up, but I think Lucas has already done that with the prequels. And as much as he’s tinkered with the original trilogy, he can’t really change our memories of that.

    Overall, though, I think there’s potential. Pixar has had a few stumbles lately, but otherwise they’re solid storytellers. And I think Disney had done well by Marvel. We’ve seen some of their best work lately. I think it’s pretty well agreed upon that when George Lucas gets out of the way of his own work, it flourishes (i.e. Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi). When I see good directors handling big franchises, like Joss Whedon with Avengers or Sam Mendes with the upcoming Skyfall, it gives me hope that a good director/screenwriter could create some super awesome Star Wars.

    Personally, I hope that they don’t adapt any of the books or games. I’d love a fully original Star Wars story, something different than a book adaptation or a prequel in which we already know how it’s going to turn out.

    For both my brother and I, what it really came down to was just what Jman and Roland have said: I’ll get to take my now 4-year-old to a new Star Wars movie in the theatre. As much as I love the memories I have of Star Wars growing up, I look forward to creating new ones with my boys in the future.
