Are they actually making an ongoing stream of movies? I was under the impression that the only definite plan at the moment was 7, 8, and 9.


Yes, movies every couple of years have been mentioned. My sense is that they will focus on more "side" characters.

Man, I'd love to see some Kotor or TOR stuff. Who knows?

I can't even put into words how happy a KOTOR movie would make me!

Ooooh, I just had a thought.

Who's going to show up at Celebrations from here on out? Could be scary. Very Happy

I have to say that the reaction I've seen here and elsewhere on the net, reminds me of the doom and gloom that was being spouted when Disney bought Marvel. Yet now several years later, none of what people were bitching about happening actually happened. Instead we got some more kick ass films and the comics are still going strong. They even bumped up the animation department, the one place Warner/DC was far better.

Yes, and Disney also turned Pixar into a huge success. Btw, Pixar was created by George Lucas as part of the computer division of LFL.

?? I know....that was my point. We jump to the prequels, and one of the first characters we see is Obi-Wan, a character already established. They could've gone with any Jedi really, but they didn't, they wanted it to tie together. That's why I was saying I would be surprised if they went with totally new characters or timeline period.


That doesn't sound like that's your point, but okay. My point was that if they hadn't had Obi Wan or Yoda or Anakin in the PT, then it would have been odd. Not because 'it's what most people are looking for', but because it wouldn't make sense not to. So, no, they really couldn't have gone with any other Jedi alone (though they did include quite a few new Jedi).

On the Disney Princess point, I have no problem with Disney using Leia, because they've moved away from that stereotype of 'Disney Princess' in recent years. And I don't think they'd replace Mara with a damsel in distress, because they don't do - or at least, not solely - damsels in distress any more. They have veritable a***-kicking characters. Although I've not seen the Avengers movie, the woman Scarlett Johannson played was, I gather, a solid character. Brave. Pirates.

I just had an idea. What if they found a way to carbon freeze/suspend Darth Maul in TCW, and he wakes up in the Sequel Trilogy, leaving him to be the main villain through all three films?

Exactly. I have at least two things that suck about this arrangement

1. Now on top of every new Star Wars product it will say Disney on it

2. Episodes 7 8 and 9 + will completely obliterate the EU if they don't do their research.

Eh, the more it sinks in..... I'm starting to be more optimistic. Best case scenario, we get a split universe, and get the EU and the new movies, (though I suppose it's possible the new movies would fit in but I doubt it) and worst case the EU comes to an end. Now we all knew it would have to end eventually, and at least this way it could go out the way it came in. With movies.

Though maybe I'm just going crazy from shock.

I would assume that the movies would be based on the EU and the Yuuzhan Vong war and other main items in the EU.

It won't happen. They're doing a wholly original story.
