I feel a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of Star Wars fans suddenly screamed out "OH F***!"

Rumour mill is going into overdrive on this. Talk of an episode 7,8,9. :shock: Can't do any worse than what Lucas did do the prequels or can they?

Now that's just beggin' for trouble, Spidey. :? At least Lucas had emotional investment in the project. Whereas this...well, let me put it this way: best case scenario, the Star Wars fans breathe a sigh of relief. Worst case scenario? I can't imagine exactly what it entails, but I think a lynch mob'll be involved.

They'll probably have Zac Ephron as Darth!

I'm not sure that Lucasfilms hasn't been a bit 'Disney' for a long time. The Ewoks were very Disneyish and most of The Phantom Menace could have been made by Disney. :?

OMG you know what the Disney purchase of Star Wars means? DANCING JAR JAR IN DISNEYLAND PARADES. We have to go back in time to fix this.

There are already Star Wars parades and characters in Walt Disney World. There are whole Star Wars weekends, and the Star Tours ride (which I can't get on because it's a simulator and I would get motion sick :( ). Kids can sign up for Jedi Training Academy most days in Disney's Hollywood Studios park and fight Darth Vader.

Don't know what the movies will be like, but I know I didn't even bother to watch the last one that was released. Chances are there will eventually be a whole Star Wars land added to the one park, which would be smart competition with Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Which I still haven't gotten to see! Really want to see that!
