Typo in your thread title. Should have been "LucasFilm sells out to Disney."

I can't lie.. I will definitely be there when it opens.. Probably at a midnight showing. lol. Disney has done well with Marvel, I hope they do the same here. Stay true to the universe created for them and expand.

First scene should be Jar Jars head getting blown off.

I'm curious to see where the decide to go with the story. There's been a lot of material covered in books, wonder if they're going to adapt something, branch off into something new, or just screw continuity altogether.

First off, I realize you were being facetious, but I've seen people comment about Jar Jar related to this story, but he would just seem out of place in Episode VII since he wasn't in Episodes IV, V, or VI, there's absolutely no way they bring him back

I actually am interested in seeing how they revive the series, but then again, I actually kinda enjoyed Episodes I, II, and III (with the exception of the last five minutes or so of III) so take that for what it's worth

I was being facetious, but I also really don't want to see him back. lol. Like Vin has said, there is SO MUCH material out there regarding the Star Wars universe that I won't rule out any kind of story line.

fair enough, though I'd be surprised if don't try to maintain some continuity, another thing I wonder is if they'd need to get a separate agreement to adapt something that's already out there, my guess is (assuming someone in the LucasFilm legal department had half a brain) that any license they gave out to use the 'Star Wars' name for books or the like included a reservation of the movie rights for an adaptation, but you never know

Thing to be considered is they bought Lucasfilm LTD. Not just the Star Wars franchise they got everything from Star Wars to ILM to Skywalker Sound to Indiana Jones and hopefully LucasArts. I would imagine it would also include the books licsening as well.


Being a Star Wars fanboy and geek I look forward to a new movie brought to me by the company that rescued Marvel movies and look forward to Lucas himself no being able to kill the franchise like I feel he was doing.

And Zack I agree with Thanatos that the fact you haven't seen 4,5 and 6 must be corrected immediately.

I love to immerse myself in the Star Wars universe... but I am nowhere near a fan boy. For those of you who are more into it than I am... What do you want to see out of a plot line for this?

Do you want to see them put something together and continue the story they have already set up... or do you want them to do something new and kinda start fresh with the plot.

Take the very first book trilogy and make a trilogy out of it.

I don't mean the books that came chronologically after Return of the Jedi- that would be the Truce at Bakura, which was pretty bad- I mean the Heir to the Empire trilogy by Timothy Zahn, with Grand Admiral Thrawn as the bad guy, the very first books that came out after the movies.

It remains the best trilogy of Star Wars books, and would make one hell of an awesome trilogy of movies. And it would let them introduce Mara Jade.

Funny, I hated those books. Maybe it was the fact that I was 10 or so when I tried to read them, but I didn't have any issues with anything I read afterwards.

Honestly, the more I think about it, the more I hope they go with something new. If you continue after where RotJ ends (or soon after), then you're going to have to recast characters, and I don't think that would go over well.

Heir to the Empire is far and away the most popular books, I believe. Certainly the best. Thrawn remains the best enemy in any of the books, IMO, primarily because he didn't have force powers or anything like that, he was just one hell of a tactician. The way he took Coruscant out of the war for an extended period of time was just awesome.

Surprised you hated them- what other series have you read since?

The Fate of the Jedi series should certainly be out of the question, but given that the Clone Wars TV series had an episode in there just to help explain the existence of Abeloth, I'm wondering if they don't just skip right to that. I hope not. That was decidedly one of the worst series.

The New Jedi Order original series would also work, with the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, but it's rather long for just a trilogy. Plus of course, there's the matter of killing off a major character. Not sure how that would go over.

What if they went backwards? Like, to the Old Republic days. That seems like it would work.

Let's see, I'm going to count series and standalone books... (thank you wikipedia for helping me remember)

The Han Solo Trilogy
Shadows of the Empire (standalone)
2/3rds of The Bounty Hunter Wars
Truce at Bakura (I concur with your opinion.)
The first four books of the X-Wing series (Corran Horn is awesome)
Courtship of Princess Leia (standalone)
The first four books of the Jedi Prince series
The Thrawn Trilogy (I think I read all of these. It's been a while...)
Champions of the Force (this was one of my favorites)
I, Jedi (standalone)
The Callista Trilogy
The Crystal Star (standalone)
2/3rds of The Black Fleet Crisis (Can't remember if I read all of this one or not, think I didn't read either the first or last book)
The Corellian Trilogy
A bunch of the Young Jedi Knights
Vector Prime (the most recent Star Wars book I've read)
Tales from Jabba's Palace
Tales of the Bounty Hunters


The New Jedi Order original series would also work, with the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, but it's rather long for just a trilogy. Plus of course, there's the matter of killing off a major character. Not sure how that would go over.

New Jedi Order is one of the things I was thinking of, even though I only read Vector Prime. But like you said, killing off a major character right away probably isn't the best way to reintroduce things.


What if they went backwards? Like, to the Old Republic days. That seems like it would work.

I despise prequels, but that's just probably me.

This one I actually liked.

And I always thought Darth Maul had the potential to be an awesome villain but they didn't do enough to make him a big part of the story.
