Okay, my initial estimate of the proposed new films has risen due to the possibility of Harrison Ford.

I have mixed feelings.  I've read all the various arguments so far.

Pros...  First movie to be written by someone other than Lucas since Empire.  Disney bought Marvel and more or less let them handle their business.  Lots more capital for the films means....well I don't know what it means, honestly.  I don't think special effects have been an issue for Star Wars.  Star Wars could become sort of a Bond type of deal.  Eventually we'll run into new trilogies.  Maybe we'll hate some.  Maybe twenty years from now some writer will take a brilliant, fresh new angle, and make us all a bunch of happy middle aged fanboys/girls.

Cons... They could really, really screw this up and make me want to Hulk-Smash Disney World.  Poor Goofy, he just got in my way.

On the books...  Lucas warned us decades ago that the books were non-canonical with the exception of the novelizations of the movies.  The comic books and video games were even further off the canonical timeline.  I can live with it.

Are we allowed to swear on these boards?  Because if not, I can't express my feelings on this honestly.  http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/357610

Well since this trilogy is screwed, I think I might give up on my lifelong dream of taking over Skywalker Ranch.  OR I guess I could give up because it was completely unrealistic.

Don't write it off yet. It could just be a flashback role or something.

Honestly, judging it when we only even know the script-writer is too much and too harsh.

All those talking about following the books, I hate to point this out but um... Lucas has stated several times in the past, the books, video games and comics are not canon, at all. I wish I had the link to verify that one, but I have seen it in several of his past interviews, its one reason he didn't give a shit about how they did Mandalore in the Clone Wars cartoons >_

When was the last time anyone around here put any real weight into something he said after the 90's? >.>

I believed him when said he was done with making SW films... $4.05 billion dollars pretty much says "I'm done and I'm moving to an island".

Welcome, Rylan *licks back*
