    Some ideas of what can be done with other Lucas properties:

    Willow: I'm a fanatical "Willow" fan, would love to see an animated tv series produced by Dave Filoni, good comics, and more novels.

    Droids & Ewoks still have not been released complete on home video.

    Lucas has an animated fairy tale coming out, while a stand-alone feature would be great in an era of endless series, if there's a world to be explored, it might work as a tv series or something.

    Red Tails: Parts I & III are still there to be made, and the film itself could use an "extended cut".

    Twice Upon A Time has never been released in its final form on home video, that's long overdue.

    Lucasarts produced lots of odd games in the 80's and early 90's, some of them might work as films are tv series.

    And there's Indy. I'm not sure what can be done with that, perhaps an animated series?

    Any ideas?

    Disney will exploit everything they bought, in time, I've already accepted that.

    You know Lucasfilm originally was developing a Monkey Island film of some type at Disney of all places? This was in the '90's.

    So, you could have a Monkey Island Pirates of the Caribbean mashup film.

    I'm not entirely sure what Disney has actually acquired completely when it comes to the other properties (other than Indy), but I'd love to see the Droids & Ewoks series get a full, unaltered release (just like three other films owned by Lucasfilm - sorry). They're otherwise pretty worthless without the dinky 1980s nostalgia value of the original soundtracks.

    It'd be fantastic to see the 'prequel' & 'sequel' to Red Tails, I imagine the storylines would be far more engaging than the very generic Boys Own adventure we saw - the battle of overcoming racism & prejudice to get the Tuskegee Airmen established in the first place, then the very bitter return home of these decorated war heroes to a life as second-class citizens.

    As for Indy - let's just let him die with dignity. I have no desire to see Indiana Jones hobbling out of some Egyptian ruin with a walking frame while being pursued by angry mummies who just happen to be moving even slower than he is, nor do I wish to see his legacy ruined by Mutt. They barely got away with the Beyond the Valley of the Dolls ending in Crystal Skull as it was.

    WGM is correct Nub. Disney owns Lucasfilm lock stock and barrel. SW, Indy, all the Lucas companies: Lucasfilm, ILM, Skywalker Sound, Lucas arts, Lucas online, Lucas animation, etc.

    Tucker 2: Tuckers revenge!

    I agree. Would like to see those. Speaking of, Kathy Kennedy just finished producing Spielberg's Lincoln, another complex look at one of our Prez. She could lead that charge.

    I wouldn't mind to see a Monkey Island animated series.

    What Disney properties would work as Lucasfilm movies?
    I'm thinking TRON 3, Paladin and The Black Hole remake.

    Also a huge Willow film to the degree that I prefer it over the original Star Wars film. Not sure I'd want to see an animated continuation, though. Hate to use the word "gritty" because it's such a cliche (and because I loved the CGI style of the prequels), but given that Willow had a more in your face action style than Star Wars ever did I think the live action dirty grey world was essential in adding to the overall atmosphere. Another novel or two would be my first choice for more material even though I never read the existing trilogy they did.

    Samurai Jack, please when you link to articles on other sites, also remember to put your own opinions about the articles and a summary of what was said.

    They should also be on-topic and dealing with Lucasfilm properties and Disney.

    Full copy and paste jobs will be edited in the future.
