    Star Wars Episode 7 Discussion/Lucasfilm bought by Disney

    http://www.nickandmore.com/2012/10/3...de-7-for-2015/

    I do not know how to take this. It is just opening so much up, but I fear for Star Wars. But then excited for Episode 7.

    No way...Lucas give up his baby? I just don't see it. And an Episode 7? Unless it's set in the far future of Star Wars I just don't see how it would work.

    Star Wars died with Episode 1. Maybe a new person in charge could bring it back to life.

    With the live-action TV series dead in the water, Lucas did say he was retiring from Star Wars.

    I look at what Disney did to ERB's Mars series with John Carter, I really worry with everything Star Wars is from the Clone Wars tv show, to the toys to all of it, I just wonder if Clone Wars will now continue. And will Disney work in all of the novels and everything into a cohesive storyline?? So much to wonder about.

    Oh great. As if episode 1,2 & 3 weren't bad enough. I'm not against expanding the universe... I'm against weak story telling, unimaginative plots & horrible acting.

    I cannot wait for the internet to explode with nerd rage once released. It'll be a better show than the movie!

    It can't possibly be any worse than endless "special editions" butchering the OT and endless amounts of Expanded Universe tripe.

    Staring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Solo and Orlando Bloom wearing another bad wig as yet another whiny Skywalker

    It is Disney, that train wreck could happen.

    Mara Jade's not that bad a character imo, she's a bit like the Teela of the SW universe (taker no bull redhead).

    She's a horrible character and a Mary Sue too perfect. Besides Luke can't marry that's how vader became dark

    Why would anyone want to watch that?


    I joke

    I really thought the Force Unleashed was a great idea. That could work pretty well as a movie. We could get a lot of Darth Vader/Emperor Palpatine, more transition of the Empire from the Republic, and lots of lightsaber badassness!

    I would LOVE them to introduce Mara Jade into the new movies! I'm not a huge EU fan but I do like some of the elements they introduced, like the Jedi Academy idea. Anyway, I do like the idea of Mara being introduced and I'm hoping to see Luke guiding the next generation of newly found Jedi.

    If a Mara Jade movie isn't up for consideration the the folks at Disney & Lucasfilm don't have their heads on straight. A movie featuring Mara Jade would definitely pull in the fans, and there is plenty of room to tell stories featuring her. For instance, a movie that takes place during Mara Jade's time as the Emperor's Hand could work well running in theaters inbetween episodes 7,8, and 9 as it's such a change of pace. The lead character is working for the bad guys, has Force abilities (so that angle is covered for folks that think a SW story HAS to have Force users), and she often operates covertly. And of course the overall time period with Mara as the Emperor's Hand covers the same time period as Eps. 4,5, and as well as a few years prior; depending on when the movie takes place Mara could catch news broadcasts or intelligence updates that reference events in Eps. 4,5, and 6.

    I'm not a Mara Jade fan, so if they do make a movie with her I'll skip it like the Fett one.
