    As its own movie, I liked Episode 1. The other 2 were pretty poor, even if you consider them as individual movies.

    So, I don't have high hopes of these 3 new ones.

    Is it though? I'd love to see more of the Star Wars world and Disney certainly has the clout to make that happen. There are some excellent Disney movies. You just have to block out 'Hannah Montana' and the Straight-to-video sequels and prequels they churn out to keep the kiddies happy.

    Episode 7 apparently (BBC news this morning) so set after return of the Jedi. Vader is dead, the emperor is dead, the empire fell to pieces. Who or what is going the be the bad guys? I hope it is the Tusken Raiders, those noises still freak me out.

    Perhaps what is left of the Trade Federation?

    Ooh more trade disputes ZZzzzzzz...

    I can understand that people want to explore the Star Wars universe, I really do I am a big fan, but are more cynical money squeezing movies the way to go.
    The prequels made me sad and with Disney at the helm are we ever going to get anywhere close to the originals again?

    There are a lot of Extended Universe books set after the fall of Vader and the Emperor, I'm sure they'll find something they can focus on with Lucas and maybe some of the extended universe writers. I wouldn't put it past them going down the path of the re-establishing of the Jedi Order, ie Grand Master Skywalker, and introducing Mara Skywalker.

    There's a lot they can do if they use the books as a starting point. Quite interested to see what happens.

    A Star Wars trilogy with the storytelling chops that the Pixar guys have would be good.
    They even have a good track record for making emotion filled robot characters...
    We could get a fight between R2D2 and Wall-E for most cutest film robot evah!!
    Not to mention the much awaited Darth Vader vs. Emperor Zerg battle royale!

I think there is still plenty of milage in the Star Wars 'universe' and it's an immersive world and culture that I'd love to see explored more fully. I'm not sure Disney is the right one to do it, but I'd rather see the franchise in the hands of a powerhouse like Disney, than fizzle into nothing or be mired in mediocrity (lets be fair, Episodes 1 thru 3 were a bit trite). Episode 6 pretty much tied up the loose ends of the Galactic Empire - Both Vader and Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine are now dead, and the impression at the end of Episode 6 is that the control of Galactic Empire has crumbled and oppressed systems are rejoycing in rediscovered freedom (Storm Trooper helmet drums anyone?). Anyone familiar with the Star Wars universe will know there have been extensive post-episode-6 books written - will Ep7 render these 'non-canon' or will it be sympathetic to the plotlines here? Luke, Leia and Han play a huge part in the post-emperor Star Wars world, but Luke Hamil, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher are certainly all too old to reprise an 'immediately post-revolution' role so perhaps we are looking at a 'next generation' storyline following some crisis or plot involving decendants (you never know, you might see Luke Hamil and Harrison Ford in it again) - similar to the time gap between Ep3 and Ep4 which allowed for the characters at the end of 3 to age enough that the different actors weren't a problem.

    Either way, fans have a choice to ignore the new trilogy and revere the original - it's not like they are re-making the originals.... yet....

    Ummmm.... I think you may mean Mark?

    Don't worry though.... It's an easy mistake to make.... Just ask Mark, himself!

    As he get's out of his Tie-Fighter, in the original, he calls out to Leia by shouting "Carrie!" It's hardly noticeable....Just like Luke Hamill!!!




    *Sorry @AMLightfoot.... but I just couldn't let it pass with my pedantic head!! No offence intended!

    Didn't Lucas originally write all plot all nine back in the 70's?

    I'm sure my brother has a magazine which came out around the time of Ep 1. which detailed what happened next, I recall some kind of battle on the Wookie homeworld and Chewy dies in episode 7 or 8.

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened...

    There are always two Duck Lords of the Sith, a Master and an Apprentice.
    Darth Scrooge and Darth Donald.
