    Why would you feel bad for the fans? It`s been liberated from Lucas`s Tyrannical clutches. Now he can give ideas and people can go through and pick the good ones, and discard the bad ones, instead of him going unchecked through another movie.

    Disney can`t ruin it any more than George Lucas did himself. Can only get better.

    Yeah, I`ve been hearing a lot of talk and people are saying this will probably end up being a good thing for the Star Wars franchise since George Lucas went batsh*t crazy years ago!

    It`s not necessarily that he went batpoo crazy. It`s that he, like anybody else, has good ideas, and bad ideas, and when he was making the original trilogy he had people that would say "Dude, that`s stupid." But in making the new trilogy, nobody wanted to tell the "father of Star Wars" that some of the ideas were retarded.

    It makes you wonder how much money is Enough?
    When can you just sit back and take pride in your work without becoming a prostitute. When you have more money than God why whore out your past glories?

    When you finance, produce, direct and write a movie, you are unlikely to employ people who disagree with you. THAT is why the prequels were not as good as the OT.

    As i have said in the past, Fark you Lucas!!!
    He is a true witch doctor, he keeps bringing the dead to life, zombifying SW. Han shot first...Lucas: `NO! I have a vision, i must give my creature `new` life` (For the new Gen to give lucas their money, Han has to be squeaky clean)
    AUrrgggra!!!

    Jar jar Binks .\/. ? He is the Devil!!!!!

    Yeah, most fan bases aren`t treated as a cash crop. They are treated with respect, to them and the story, and utmost care is given to...oh WTF JUST HAND OVER YOUR CASH ALREADY!

    It would be hard for Disney to create the appeal of the original characters, but I`m sure that, at least, they have enough sense to know what mistakes were made in the three CG-laden prequels. I watch with curiosity.

    Hope Disney do the decent thing and extrapolate the whole star wars world, Lucas just went a bit ego and a tad tyrannical

    Saw the first one when it came out, it was ok. Didn`t bother with the others although I`ve seen bits of the second two when they were on telly.

    Apparently it was a popular trilogy but they just couldn`t stop milking it. Nothing has changed, but for that kind of money who wouldn`t sell?

    Somehow, I don`t think he needed the money.

    $4 billion? I dont blame him. I dont like it, but I would call him an idiot if he didnt take it.

    Anyway, 1 billion of that could be handed out to upset fans. Making them incredibly happy fans.

    Whatever they do with the franchise CAN`T be worse than what Lucas himself did with episodes 1-3. I`m glad he sold it.
