    I just hope they make the new star wars movie(s) good, i mean i really want to see the expanded universe (Mara Jade in particular), but i can settle for a new original movie or movie series, just as long as its good and worthwhile to watch.

    Okay, let's talk about something that's NOT Episode 7. Who here actually thinks George Lucas hates Star Wars?

    Who saws he hates star wars? He only sold starwars to disney to pass on the legacy so more movies could be made, and i think hes got a lot of star wars merchandise at his home.

    Well, his fans pissed on him for making the prequels for trying to explain the things in the OT, and he never even wanted to do star wars. He wanted to do a space epic about Flash Gordon, but the rights were already held by another company, so he was forced to do this.

    I think at the time when he was doing star wars, he didnt want to do it because he wanted to do flash gordan, But now i think he loved doing star wars as it gave him a hell of a lot of money, and without star wars he would probably wouldnt be able to make good films. I personally dont see why fans dont like the prequels, i think Episode 3 was the best star wars film because of the anakin obiwan fight ending with anakin becoming the man in the suit.

    You really don't know who that is? >__>

    And the reason people don't like the prequels were

    A: Bad acting, script, dialogue...

    B: Mr. Pinklett

    I do know who the man in the suit is- DARTH VADER. sometimes i like to call him the man in the suit.
    I guess everyone has their opinion on what bad acting, script and dialogue is, i think they were good, not as good as the original films (except ep 3), but good all the same.
    And who is Mr Pinklett?

    I may be the only one, but I can't wait for Episode VII. I want to see how Disney's going to handle it, even if they may f*ck it up.

    He did a series of reviews on the prequel films. I posted a link to his Phantom Menace review on the first page.

    I am soooooo hoping the trilogy is going to be from the Thrawn triology of books. Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and Last Command would make epic movies. Plus that trilogy gives you a villain that IMO would be better than Darth Vader, and a villain that took 3 "episodes" to deal with.

    The official word (posted at least a few times...) is that the new films will be original stories, not straight adaptations of existing EU material. Which wouldn't have made a whole lot of sense anyway.

    The three new films that are now in the planning stages will be original stories, rather than straight adaptations of existing EU material.

    They'll still be connected. You don't really think they're going to take three of the seminal works of the cinematic medium (and their prequels...) and just throw them out, do you?

    lots of people do crazy things with films these, its possible it will happen. disney is in charge of the new films, so they could do anything.

    They "could", in the sense that Disney also could say "we spent $4 billion on Lucasfilm because we actually hate Star Wars", burn any existing prints and lock up the franchise in the Disney vaults forever, never to be seen again. Possibility does not equate to plausibility.

    If they aren't using EU material, what are some ideas for what the story will be? Isn't everything after VI EU?

    True. But im just thinking of a lot of possibilities that could happen, i mean a lot of people screw up films these days and it may or may not be possible that disney could go in any direction for the new films.

    That's the question, as this new chapter unfolds, isn't it? We'll find out in a few years.

    Technically, "EU" is anything that isn't in one of Episodes I-VI proper, to varying extents. These will be new films continuing the existing film canon, which constitute the highest level of canon.

    Again, possibility does not equate to plausibility in the slightest.

    True. We just have to wait and see what happens, wont we?
