This is great news! I'd been expecting something like this, and to have it confirmed makes me very happy. I hope Lucasfilm will follow the Marvel route of 1-2 movies a year, but I'd still happily go see 3 movies a year as long as the quality is there. And once the ST is done, I'd like to see LF shift fully to the Marvel model of several movies about individual characters/groups building up every 3 years or so to a grand, Avengers-like ensemble movie where everyone plays a part. Yes, it's almost unavoidable that from time to time we'll get so-so movies - for me, again referring to Marvel, that was Thor and Captain America -, but I don't mind one bit as long as we also get Avengers-like masterpieces (please, please, please let Episode VII be one to properly reinvigorate the whole franchise...) I really can't understand the people who are disappointed by this news. As has been said, if you don't like the very existence of those additional SW films, don't go watch them. Nor do I fear that the ST's quality will be diluted by these other movies, if that's what some people here are worried about. Disney certainly has the resources to produce them all with, at least, the visual quality we've come to expect from SW movies. And should something go very wrong and Disney/LF find that they have to choose between a ST movie and a standalone to allocate full resources to, which one do you think it will be?
