    I could see it happening like 20 years down the line, after Episodes 7-9, 3-5 spin off movies, and 2-3 more TV shows.

    It could feature

    Episodes 1-9

    Spin off movies

    Clone Wars cartoon, TCW CGI Show

    Future tv shows

    Documentaries like Science Of Star Wars, When Star Wars Ruled The World

    Parodies like Spaceballs, Family Guy, Robot Chicken and hopefully Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money

    Star Wars weekly or monthly news show

    Don't think a Star Wars/Avengers movie would work but wouldn't mind seeing a Star Wars/Avengers crossover CGI show, not being cannon to anything of course.

    Would also be cool to have a CGI lightsaber duel fantasy bracket, rank Jedi and Sith from movies/games/books from 1-16, 1-32, 1-64 whatever. Then put them in a bracket and see who comes out on top. Imagine seeing Yoda Vs. Maul, Kit Fisto Vs. Plo Koon, Vader Vs. Mace, Darth Bane Vs Mara Jade, etc. Do like 1-2 fights a week, drag it out over a long period of time. It would be like March Madness for Star Wars fans, call it Force Madness.

    I was flipping channels the other day, and saw some Lego Star Wars thing - I have no idea what it was. It was like the game, if it were a TV show. For some reason, Han and Luke were on Naboo, and Han shot a guy. Luke said "Han, geez man - you shot that guy first!" Han replies, "Of course I did, I mean, it was either him or me, why wouldn't I shoot first?" Luke says, "I don't know man, I can't understand why anyone would even debate that."

    If that's the kind of thing we can make an entire channel out of, count me in. That'd be great for sick days from work.

    This is exactly how I have been thinking lately. There is far too much EU. It's hard for me, an avid Star Wars fan who has been reading Star Wars books since I was a kid, to keep up with everything that comes out. I try to read every novel, but doing so is very time consuming. To keep up with both comics and novels would be impossible. Oversaturation is not helpful, and it certainly puts off younger fans. What if only two novels came out per year? One following the post-ROTJ story, and one in another time period. This would allow much more anticipation of the novels that do come out, and Del Ray would be more careful about the books they do put out, so we don't end up with a bunch of filler like the entire FOTJ series.

    This is exactly what I would worry about with TV shows and movies if there was enough material for an entire network. Having too many TV shows running at once can ruin a franchise, as it did with Star Trek. Casual fans get bored of it, and get lost because there is simply too much material to keep up with. This is the same with films. We shouldn't be getting a new Star Wars film every year, even if this involves spin off stories. Half the fun with this stuff is the anticipation in the gap between new materials.

    They have yet to do that to Pixar or Marvel. I really don;t understand why everyone seems to think Disney will come in and run the show in order to pump their own people in it. They have proven themselves to be a fair and benevolent dictator for some time now.

    I don't think they shoehorned the Jonas Brothers into John Carter Of Mars, but they did interfere with the title and marketing, etc. A lot of people argue Disney killed that film (which seems more now than it ever did like a practice run for Star Wars).

    You can make your own Star Wars podcast on Youtube. SuperShadow 2.0?

    That was all Disney involved though. People fail to see the difference. You can;t compare the Star Wars franchise to John Carter. They did not purchase a whole studio and license to scrap and do themselves, they purchased a story and made it into a film with all Disney. A comparison with Pixar and Marvel is much more applicable. With Pixar and marvel it is the people in those companies that actually make the films, Disney just hands out the cash. Disney did not buy Star Wars, it bought Lucasfilms and all the comes with it. Lucasfilms is still heading up the production. The John Carter comparison does not come even close to fitting.

    As a result of the Disney aquisition I think its likely an SW channel could pop up on Hulu at some point.

    You're right about the distinction between Disney-proper and Disney's 'protectorates', and you're right that in many ways it's wrong to compare the SW franchise to the John Carter franchise, though stylistically it looks an awful lot like a certain, PT film don't you think? ;)

    I actually loved JC. The best Disney film since Straight Story. It's a shame it got such negative press.

    Who is responsible for the marketing of Marvel and Pixar films? Is Disney strictly hands off? Have they ever corrupted an acquired company (as opposed to an acquired story or character) before?

    Good questions that I sadly do not have the answer to. I would assume the studios making the films would be largely responsible for the marketing, specifically whoever they higher as the producer? In this case it would be Kathleen Kennedy, and I am pretty confidant in her ability with that. As for any other companies Disney has owned and damaged none come to mind, but that certainly doesn't mean none exist. Even Disney makes mistakes obviously, and this is certainly no guarantee, but I am not nearly as concerned over Disney's intervention as others may be. No, if these movies flop it will be the fault of Lucasfilm itself as opposed to Disney I would say.
