    I have a bad feeling about this. How will this effect the current EU?

    I'm not gonna lie, I have no problem with Disney owning Lucasfilm, it worked out well with Marvel, but STAR WARS 7. I REALLY hope that's a working title and not a direct continuation of ROTJ.

    I don't mind Disney owning LucasFilms, but let's hope they don't mess with continuity and the EU. As for a 7th film? I wouldn't mind seeing another movie. Maybe they'll do a really awesome job at it.

    actually

    if it does happen I wouldn't mind if they do away with some of the pathetic EU stuff we've gotten over the years

    I don't think it will actually be Episode VII. I think that story is over (sorry EU fans). I think it's Star Wars #7.

    I am very excited.

    I feel sick. It's like having your Mum have an affair and remarry.

    Eek.

    This is Disney. It will be Episode 7 with young Spy Kids style kiddies, an aged Luke and NEW SITH.

    Oh dear.

    I agree, GL had to hand it off to someone eventually, and they did knock one out of the park with 'The Avengers.' I am optimistic. On whether or not it will be a continuation of the original storyline, I'd think they would do a brand new thing (no Luke, Han, etc.) Then again it might not even actually be "Episode VII" It's not like they have the script written already (I'm assuming) so it could conceivably be a standalone story arc in the SW universe. I think it would be awesome if they did a trilogy in the Old Republic timeline, it would be fresh and new.

    O
    Once again, pointing to Marvel, Disney seems to be content with letting companies do they're own thing so I think we'll be good in that regard.

    I rather see a Star Wars spin off, than a part 7.

    I agree with Jaoblis

    I doubt that Disney will interfere with production

    however I still think Lucas hasn't just given it to Disney just like that out the blue

    IF this is true, and if it is IO believe it's one of those sensationalist news items Lucas will still be in control of the whole thing

    Maybe Lucas has cancer and decided it was time to put Star Wars in someone elses hands.
    Wait, we are all talking Star Wars but what does this mean for Indiana Jones??
