So peoples, if you have been living under a rock I am here to inform you, Disney has Bought Lucas Films from George Lucas for 4.05 Billion $.

With their new purchase, Disney is hoping to start on the final three in the Star Wars series, 7,8, and 9. I have no idea of the cast at this current moment but I know that George Lucas will remain as a creative consultant.

How do you feel about this?

I'm sure the making of this new movie will go over well. Really shows all they care about it money, it's awful.

This, makes me not to watch star wars.

in order to follow the original plans, they would completely ruin the expanded universe. (30 ABY is around the start of the Yuuzhan Vong war, not when the New republic is just forming.)

Just how do they plan to do that? You can't just add to the Star Wars series... you can make crummy TV shows and maybe a few video games off the franchise, but you can't make more movies! That's a major no-no, especially for a hyper-capitalist company like Disney.

I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

The movies 1-3 (not the original ones..) were absolutely terrible for the series...I can't even imagine how much of a train wreck these will be..

Still waiting for that Star Wars: Battlefront III. I don't think the movies will do well, I can't think of much that they can add to the series. The sixth one's ending was fitting, and they explained pretty much everything with the new prequels.

The company that made the first 2 went bankrupt, so it is not likely to ever be made.

Well if the movies follow the course laid by the expanded universe, they will be during the yuuzhan vong war, which is about 20 books condensed into 3 movies.

although it would be cool to have movies on that war, it just wouldn't work out.

aslong george lucas is working whit them, i'm sure he will be ale to guide it in a direction that it wont damage the 1st 6 and that it wont be overly stupid.

there must be something he sees in this sale. it's not like he needed to money.

The prequels are known for being overly stupid though, at least that's what I see from most of the reviews I've read. I'd have to rewatch them to form a solid opinion.

With Lucas as a consultant I don't think it will be too bad. The movies might be OK. I am assuming that they will follow the books, but if they don't then it will get really confusing.

Honestly we will just have to wait and see. Cannot speculate too much right now.

They already have Star Tours. At least that is what I think it is called. They changed it around a few years ago, I don't know if they changed the name.

Because...y'know...he did so well with 1-3.. (sarcasm)

There are 7, 8, and 9 out already in the form of books, although whether or not they will follow these is up to Disney's whim.

Also, thanks to the mod who fixed the spelling error.

Whoopee, three more Star Wars movies I'll never be able to sit through.

With both the emperor and the almighty Vader gone, how did they manage to squeeze out three more installments in the series without the classic villains?

Attack of the Clones was. I actually fell asleep in the theater. That's the only time that has ever happened to me.

Disney Pixar created a virtually entirely new character list for Cars 2 after Cars. They'll think of some cliche'd character or another to throw in.
