Star Wars under Disney, Episodes VII, VIII and IX
Join to comment
 Group admin 

Lucas has just undoubtedly sold the one of the largest and most well known franchises to Walt Disney. What are your thoughts on this? Personally, as long as they follow already existing cannon (unlike Dave Filoni does in TCW) like the books - especially the books, they could make it something decent.
I don't necessarily agree with George's decision but it has been done.

Please feel free to make your opinions heard.

I'm just scared. I hope they don't destroy the franchise.
I've never been too keen on post episode VI but I hope they stay true to Star Wars.

Right now we are like the original fans having heard of the prequel trilogy. So I guess that makes us the old wave of fans now. The orginal fans are the older and those to come will be the newest.


Yes, I feel the same. If they stuff this up I will be disappointed beyond comprehension. Personally I didn't mind the prequels - the Clone Wars era is probably my favourite time period (though the show is starting to press that liking) but I know lots of people who despise them and refuse to except their existence. I can only imagine the uproar that 7-9 will receive.

Guys guys. They're not going to ruin the franchise. Disney has made a lot of good movies and tv-shows, they have worked with Marvel and others and don't forget that they've made Pirates of the Carribean movies. But if they touch TCW... well I can't even imagine what's going to happen. But the new sequel trilogy sounds good. Everything is good as long they don't touch TCW! That would be disaster and we are so close to the Ep. 3, I really want to see how all will turn out for the characters like Ahsoka and Rex.

I honestly think it sounds like a good idea. Disney has made some good movies, and I don't think they're going to disappoint. I think they'll add some more Boba Fett (because it has been accepted as canon that he escaped from the Sarlacc), but what about Luke? Will they get a different actor? Mark Hamill, and Harrison Ford are getting a little old. Maybe some extended universe, or some Jacen Solo and Ben Skywalker? I'm personally looking forward to it. However, that IS how I was feeling with TCW...

As a big fan of the Star Wars live action films and the Star Wars novels, I am very concerned about this. I'm worried that they will mess up the Star Wars continuity. I really didn't like The Clone Wars. That was a very big disappointment for me. I haven't watched any of that since I saw the movie in theaters four years ago. I'm also worried that since Disney aims most of their movies at kids, they'll forget about the adult fans. That happened with The Clone Wars. I'm also not sure about having Cinderella's castle precede each Star Wars movie and have a new Star Wars TV show on Disney Channel, the same channel that Hannah Montana is on (the best movie of all time definitely doesn't go with that awful TV show). I'm just not very happy with this.

I couldn't have said it better. While I can't blame George for taking a 4 billion dollar pension, so to speak, I do fear for Star Wars as a whole, especially the EU.

I love reading the EU books and comments so I'm really worried too. I think some of the authors are too, especially the ones hat are big fans like us. Timothy Zahn (author of Heir to the Empire) posted on Facebook that he was very shocked and surprised about all of this. He says that he hasn't heard of any talk from Disney of them definitely using EU material in the next Star Wars movie, but they do own the rights to all of it now so it's still possible. I really hope that Disney allows some of the veteran Star Wars EU authors to have some say in the development of the next three Star Wars movies because they know what they are doing and know what the fans want since they go to fan events. Timothy Zahn, Aaron Allston, James Luceno, Troy Denning, and a few others were at Star Wars Celebration VI signing books and talking to fans (I met them and they were really nice). Timothy Zahn said he would help with the new Star Wars movie if he was asked to.

Unfortunately these new films are meant to take place during the New Republic Era, when they're all in their forties (approximately). They're all much older than that, I would have set it in the Legacy Era if they wanted that to make some sort of sense.

I don't really care about Disney buying them, but I don't have high hopes for Star Wars movies under Disney, but I'm sure episodes 7, 8, and 9 will be entertaining at least.

Ah, so you've heard of this as well. I honestly don't feel good about it. There's a disturbance in the force XD I really hope Disney doesn't ruin Star Wars, although my Dad said that Disney stated they will NOT interfere with whatever Lucasfilm makes, and the only reason they in is for the money. I honestly don't think we need 3 more Star Wars' (although it is kind of awesome). I really hope George and everyone else stay true the Canon already made, and just put it in movie form.

I agree. It would be really bad if they totally ignored the official canon. The EU authors put a lot of love and effort into their stuff. They would not only ignore their work, but also make a whole generation of SW fans disappointed.

My brother told me he had read that TCW may end on Series 6 because of the Disney takeover.

If that is true, I have mixed feelings about that. On the one hand I would really like to see the rest of TCW, because the quality improved a lot, on the other hand I do not care about it, because I like episode I-VI much better.

Almost definitely. More games = more money for LEGO. Besides, there's always something new to include from TCW. Personally, I never cared for the game.

From Star Wars III, I was expecting a little more from the big battle levels. The Separatists never attacked your bases! The only threat were the groups of droids that would attack you, even that was too easy.
I wish Lego games would add in a harder challenge option to their games, also adding combo attacks so that lightsaber battles for instance, would look cooler!

I know they had those at one point.
They kept it quite secret, though.

On the prequel trilogy game on the gamecube, you could press b,b, and b in a particular way so that you could break through their defense.

In my opinion, I'm on the fence whether Disney should create episode 7 or not.
I was never a big EU reader, so I might be leaning towards the 'yes' side.
For those who are a big fan of the EU, I feel sorry for you.

However, I still hear that the characters won't be completely changed. From multiple sources, I heard that Jacen and Jaina Solo will probably be involved, and the Emperor will return as a clone.

Again they've brought back somebody who was supposed to be dead! Depending on the story behind it, I'm really annoyed that they keep doing this.
Boba Fett? That's fine. His story makes sense.
Emperor Palpy? Sure, I don't see why he'd have clones of himself just in case. (however, I don't see the majority of non-Star Wars fans liking this part)
Darth Maul? Hated it. He gets cut in half and is sent down a never-ending pit. I can see that Darth was a fairly popular Sith in episode 1, but he didn't need to be brought back.

But back to the point...
I can see a lot of hope with this new series, as long as you're not stuck on the EU. I'm pretty lucky to have never really read anything EU besides the clone wars microseries books, games, and pages on wookieepedia.
That makes a lot easier of a transition from the OT and the ST.

I could say a bit more of what people think will happen in the ST, but I won't say it here because of spoilers.
I'm glad that the OT cast will return. I don't see a problem with any of them. Mark Hamill has been doing a fair amount of acting since Star Wars, including the voice of Joker and others. Harrison Ford is still excellent at acting, even if he doesn't have the appearance.
Proof that he can still act:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7T0vs9gYydo
*some mild swearing*
Leia is the only one I'm not the most keen on, but I'm completely fine with her appearance in the ST.

As for Ian MacDiarmid (Palpatine), I would really enjoy seeing back. His acting was so good it got me to really hate him in the 3rd Episode :P

As for C3PO, I don't think that Anthony's voice has changed too much, so I'd be happy to see him back

R2-D2's acting was just so good that he's a must-have for Episode 7.

One thing that could REALLY mess up Episode 7, in my opinion, is to make it animated. I don't want to see the big clone wars eyes, to be honest with you. I want the Star Wars saga to be real!
I completely agree with Mark Hamill's opinion on how Episode 7 should go.
He says that there should be less digital effects, and more models, sets, and characters.
Adding to that, I think that Episode 7 should be a lot more green than other episodes.
You may have noticed that the PT was all clean, and the OT was worn after the years of age and battle. Now, after the Empire was supposedly destroyed, the whole atmosphere of the places in the ST should be very nature-oriented. Even if it's just a bunch of vines on a building, I think that it should be added.

Just my "two cents"

I agree with you on this. The only 'EU' stuff I've ever read were the books about Jacen and Jaina Solo becoming Jedi along with Lowbacca. Though my mother (being a huge fan of Star Wars) read the books about the Yuzhonn Vonng (or however you spell that) and was extremely disappointed in them.

As long as *spoiler alert!* they don't kill off main characters like they did to poor Chewie; I think they have a pretty good shot at hitting it off. *End spoilers*

Wow a mom being a fan of Star Wars? Geeky and cool.
But back to the point,
I would hate to have Chewbacca die, but I still think that it would make the movie more interesting and give something to get you really hating the antagonist. It would also make you worry about the other characters, whether they die along with Chewie.

They wanted to do this in Episode 6, by killing off Han. He didn't add much to the story, and killing him earlier would keep viewers on their toes.
However, George Lucas didn't kill off Han, which might have been a bad thing for that single movie, but for these next 3 movies, I think that Harrison Ford will be a main reason to watch.
The reason why George didn't want to kill Solo was because he was too attached to him (?) and because he wanted to keep him alive for the EU and potentially Episodes 7/8/9.

Really? Disney has been releasing a lot of pretty well done stuff like the superheroes, Toy Story, and others. I wouldn't say that they definitely won't trash it, but I think it's more likely that they make it good than bad.
And remember, Disney knows how many Star Wars fans are waiting on this. I'm sure they will take the job more seriously than most, if not all, than their other projects.

I agree. That Disney mostly makes children's movies doesn't mean that SW Episode VII will be a fail. They still have very skilled movie-makers, it's just not the kind of movie they usually make.
