    Disney said it would follow the story of Luke, Han, and Leia,

    You're the head of lucasfilms now, who does the following?

    Writes
    Directs
    Plays Luke
    Plays Han
    Plays Leia

    This is a horrible idea. George Lucas is a sell-out.

    I would say that he is, but it wasn't his decision to make a new movie, he just sold the rights, and good on him. If someone else wants to pay you so they can make crap with some ideas that were originally yours, let them, especially since it has no actually association with his name anymore.

    The last 3 movies were horrific--With the new special effects they could have been stellar, rather than lame acting with odd story lines and at times, plain boring cinematography--

    They need to consider making another great movie---

    Also, as a side note, i wonder how big a role ILM will play in the production. Lucas retained ownership of ILM didn't he?

    They did such a great job on the original trilogy then fvcked up the special effects on the new ones so badly. Bring John Dykstra back!

    Bad idea? Look at the epics that have been thor, avengers, iron man. All Disney.

    I think a lot of people give them a hard time, because they are compared to the original 3. Did the original have great acting? Had a good story, but honestly, the biggest thing star wars has is being a pioneer. There is nothing fantastic about the original trilogy IMO. I love the movies, but I think as an homage. I know I say Disney, everything thinks of the Lion Kind, and the Jonas Brothers, but I really think this will get pulled of successfully. I know a ton of people will see it anyways. I know they aren't going to rush the movie by any means.

    What's ILM?

    I know Lucas will be a consultant, and that's it for the new movies.

    Saw ep4 in theaters when i was 7. The prequels were a disappointment. I've tried to not let my sons watch them.

    I would love to see the original actors involved...Luke as an aged Jedi badass? Yes please

    And although i'm unfamiliar with the "thrawn" trilogy (?) it sounds like it has a lot of credibility as far as the extended canon goes

    Why not have a 70 year old Han Solo
    And Luke can be the new Obi Wan type and mentor some new whiny kid...

    I would like to see Harrison Ford play Han again. Just have the series take place 30ish years later. Besides, make up can do anything.

    I liked the prequels. Not as good as the first trilogy, but still. Maybe I'm missing everything people are talking about...

    But this thread isn't about that.

    It's about the third trilogy :)

    Yep. They did the (pioneering) effects for the originals and were some of the first to venture into the digital frontier. They did the new trilogy, being Lucas' in-house effects house though i wouldn't have called the effects in those "cutting edge" even at the time.

    I didn't like episodes 1 and 2 at all, but I thought that episode 3 was on par with 4 and 5 (didn't like 6 as much).

    I saw an interview with George Lucas years ago where he said that he had originally written 9 episodes. Does anyone know if episode 7 will be the original one that he wrote?

    Don't believe so. They might use it as a template, but I believe they are bringing in a brand new writer.

    As much as i love the original star wars, i kind of don't care. I know it's going to be bad-- so i just won't go see it. You don't see me renting I-III, i just pretend it didn't happen-- no harm no foul.

    I would write a completely unrelated story.
