Yes, it is happening

what are your thoughts?

Disney bought out Lucasfilm so they now own the rights to the star wars name. Apparently back in the 70s they had planned a 7,8 and 9 but the idea got dropped in the 90s but now that Disney owns the rights they are going to make a 7 8 and 9 with some people saying 10,11, and 12 on the board as well and still others saying all they way out to 15

I am not sure how I feel about it but the one issue i see, Lucas is not listed as a producer but rather a "creative consultant" which really in my eyes just means Disney can do whatever the hell they want to and ask him questions if they feel like it

Give in to the Dark Si...I mean just watch them. I *heard* it won't be a typical Disney branded family movie, I'm kinda excited to see what they come up with, if it is based on Jar Jar Binks, well, the backlash will be severe.

i think episodes 2 and 3 are better than 1. it felt like they tried to put too much humor in episode 1 not to mention the CG in 1 is very noticeable and quite a bit better in 2 and 3

Harrison Ford is already on the boards for episode 7

Jar Jar is not in episodes 4,5 and 6 so I feel like they would have a hard time bringing him into episode 7, not to mention if you follow the politics of the series he essentially would have lost his job in episode 3 meaning he is a nobody now

that aside I could also see Disney bringing him back just for the kids which would be a huge mistake for the series as a whole

I remember sitting in the rain in a line of about 60 people waiting to get into the theater in 1979 for the "first" one when I was a kid. Went to see it 4 times that week. I don't care about any of the other movies, that one will always be "episode 1" for me. The rest were wildly disappointing. And don't even get me started on the %#(*^@% Ewoks...

When I was younger I didn't like the empire strikes back, and loves return of the jedi. Now that I've grown up, I can appreciate the darkness of episode IV and I see the problem with ewoks. Still, how awesome are those land speeders and that entire chase scene?

What you are actually asking is if he would go "gold panning" with you. :naughty
