    I hope they refer to the EU or there going to be a lot of backlash on Disney. George won't have to hear the complaints anymore.

    Wow... Maybe George really is retiring this time [face_thinking] I wouldn't bet on it though. He's probably announced retirement as many times as the possibility of an Ep VII has been. I liked how Avengers turned out but I fear what Disney will do with SW; though buying some Disney stock may not be a bad idea.

    I'm worried. Not because of the movie possibly flopping...but because of Disney being the new owners. Do you guys KNOW how bad they are with copyrights? I wouldn't be surprised if stuff like the 501st starts getting cracked down on...

    I was in denial at first, but on the other hand, Disney didn't do to bad with the whole Marvel takeover, considering they've produced the Avengers. So the more I think of it, the more I think this might actually lead to a good, solid movie (or a few, a bit sceptical). There are so many questions left unanswered though! I'd really like to see the current EU we all know (and love?) getting some greater spotlight in the live action form.

    And if the future after RotJ is explored, then it MUST feature Jaina! ;)

    As I said in my thread in Lit, I wouldn't expect our current continuity to survive. Disney had the benefit of Marvel never having had a single line of continuity, so it made it easy for them to create a film universe without any backlash. We have always had a single continuity, and to be honest, a lot of it is not easy to translate to the screen. I don't expect this to be a positive step for those of us heavily invested in the EU as it is today. Expect a reboot until told otherwise.

    I certainly hope you are wrong on that, but I fear you are right. I suppose time will tell.

    two things come to mind on this. good bye continuity, and good bye fanfic (mainly due to legal issues given how disney is). that's really about all that i'm able to get out of this ATM.

    I am personally excited about this. There are endless possibilities now, especially with Disney being able to pump cash into all the projects. I have been extremely happy with Disney over the past decade or so, especially in the last five years. The continuation of Tron, the Avengers, Tangled, etc... This has the potential to be a Golden Age for Star Wars, both for the franchise, and for the EU.

    Also, I'm hoping for a Kingdom Hearts/Star Wars crossover now! :D

    Evil.
