Of course Eyes are gunna roll whenever Disney gets involved with anything, but they have the massive amounts of money/resources/talent necessary to keep the franchise going.
Disney took over Marvel just a few years ago and the movies they've put out since have been fairly watchable, not oscar winning, but hey.. they`re superhero movies.
And although everyone also love to roll their eyes whenever anyone mentions remakes,
maybe it`s time to consolidate the hundreds of story arcs involved in the Star Wars universe and bring it back to basics, correct some of the mistakes (Jar Jar and Anakin? Midi-drating-chlorians?)... I don`t think there`s all that much wrong with eps IV-VI, but they finally have a chance to redeem the entire series and set it up for future (and past) storylines.

I dunno.. just sayin`.. maybe this could be the best thing to happen to star wars in a long time..?

I still have respect for the guy, how he created an amazing, detailed universe, on a relatively small budget, with some unforgettable characters that are still loved after 35 years. even if you didn't like the SW movies, you can`t deny the massive impact lucasfilm has had on the visual effects that drive movies today...

But I don`t think he has any real idea how to balance the franchise between the older adult fans and the new, how to keep it simple or what direction to go with the overall story.
It`s time he passed the torch on to someone who will do it justice, hopefully Mickey and his mates will treat the series with care and respect.

Nvm, after some reading, apparently the 7th movie will be completely original in story, so probably none of the books will apply, which sucks, because Thrawn was a favourite character of mine.

I would much rather this than the unimaginative reboots and remakes of movies that were made 10 years ago.

Also have you ever noticed how, when looking at a full laundry bin, you can never know if there was once a Jedi in there?
