    Do you not know how this stuff works? Your comments suggest you do not.

    This deal sees Lucasfilm Limited move under the Walt Disney Company as a division in the company, in the same way Pixar, Marvel and ESPN are. Lucasfilm will be a subsidiary of the Disney corporation, but as parent company Disney will only extend influence over things like appointments to the board. As Lucasfilm is not merged into and absorbed by Disney, there's nothing to suggest that any creative control will be ceded from Lucasfilm to Disney.

    I have to wonder just how much of an option the decision makers involved have made of doing Old Republic instead of post-ROTJ. The adventures of young Yoda seem like a marketing goldmine.

    It's okay, we'll rename this thread to "Community Panics!" and move it to the Episode VII forum once it's set up.

    I think they care more about something the moviegoing public will want to see and will find familiar than the utterly unrealistic wet dreams of fans. Who, as fickle beings, will buy all the merchandise anyway.

    God, I don't want to have to actually venture in the movie forums. Can't this be the dedicated JCC Episode VII (non-spoiler, like the old policies) thread? :p

    Does this mean we can go back to vicious message-board rivalries, spoiler-cabals and their sycophantic society of lickspittles, our beloved tradition of rabid hostility toward new posters, and an elitist hierarchy based almost solely on registration dates?

    They specifically said this will be based off of Lucas's outlines of EPISODES VII, VIII, and IX.


    So there will definitely be a post-ROTJ sequel trilogy.


    But they also said they'd make a movie every other year even after the ST is completed, and THAT will be open to every era.

    Not allowing us to discuss this would be incredibly lame. So shut it? :p

    So between this, Muppets and Marvel, Disney now owns almost all of my childhood. Lord help us if they get Hasbro, I'll just have to be branded with mouse ears.


    Actually, you can go ahead and already brand me with mouse ears.

    Precisely. We are talking not about the plot points, but about the socio-political ramifications of sustained childhood raping. Which, if the Republicans are to be believed, is a gift from God. So, thanks God for the prequels! You jerk.

    We're also crushing anyone's dreams of the EU adaptation they wanted to see. Dream crushing is an important facet of the JCC.

    Suprised Lucas sold his whole company and not jsut the SW rights, what about all the small movies he wanted to make? Is he going to found another studio for that?

    If Disney owns Lucasfilm, can't it just fire everyone and put in whoever it wants to run the company for it? Surely it has the means to decide how often movies & other media are produced and what they are about.
    Disney must have the authority as owner of Marvel to decide how many Avengers movies there will be and which characters are in them (provided they have rights for said characters). I was of the impression it decides to let Pixar and the others be seperate entities because they were already well-run and it's good for business, not because it has to.


    Surely if Disney wants a Toy Story 4, there will be one whether Pixar want it or not.

    Who knows what the heck Disney are doing? They haven't said ANYTHING except they're making a 7th SW movie, and looking to make more beyond that.

    Not without lowering the opinions of Lucasfilm by 80 and all their other vassals by 20.

    I am VERY excited. My jaw just about hit the floor when I saw this on news tonight. Episodes VII, VIII and IX are DEFINETELY happening. ^:)^:cool::D[face_dancing]:eek:

    And we will be getting more big screen Star Wars beyond that. X-wing franchise, Disney? Pretty please? And can we pretty please have Steven Speilberg direct the ST?

    Of the sources I've seen, many say "Episode VII" as opposed to just a seventh Star Wars movie (it would be the 8th anyway if you include the Clone Wars movie). That suggests a continuation of the existing saga rather than a whole lot of new seperate movies that have nothing to do with the Saga films but are in the same universe.

    I'll make one prediction now, whoever else may or may not be involved in Episode's VII to IX - R2D2 and C3PO will be involved.

    Yes, because we made Ep 3's so easy on you. Grilled Sarlaac went into a monastery after 3SA closed.
