It seems like something they could explore. The Thrawn Trilogy would also be awesome, but it's set almost right after Jedi and they'd have to re-cast everyone.

I think not.......there is technology that could make the original cast younger 20 years and there is also stunt double that could do some of the work as well......but we wont know anything that early maybe next year is my bet

Knowing how much special effects Lucasfilm likes to use, Luke Skywalker, Han and Leia Solo could be completely digital. :P

I wonder what this means for the "100+ episode live action TV series" they were (never) going to make?

either the yuzon vong (sp) invasion or the old republic could be used as bases for a great trilogy if made by a good director

if they did a really good job of it, I'd like either old republic with Revan, or the the Grand Admerial Thrawn trilogy of books. But if they're just making movies for the sake of making back their money, I want them to stay clear of any quality star wars history.

This could be good or bad. Personally I believe that ever since the original 3 movies that the series has been going down hill but as an avid fan who has read the books long ago it'll be interesting to see the direction they go with it. They may be able to re-ignite the series but knowing Disney this may be the end. Only time will tell.

Seems as if I'm in the minority but I'm excited to see what they do with it. Episodes 1, 2 and 3 were not as bad as most people go on about (please don't take this as me saying they were good) they just did so many things wrong that it's hard to see the forest for the trees.

There are so many good stories in the star wars universe; I'm excited to see what direction they choose to go with. Disappointment I fear but expect it I don't.

What's the worst that could happen?

Even if they are the worst movies of all time it doesn't erase the original trilogy.


If they can even make them worth watching I'll be happy.

No...there really isn't that technology. You can make people look younger for small scenes, but an entire movie would just look awful. You'd be totally distracted by the CGI. Plus I don't know if you've taken a look at Mark Hamil lately, but no amount of CGI is going to make him look like he is in his 30s.

Sorry, but the avengers sucked. It was only slightly better than Fantastic four.

Robert Downey Jr. as Ironman? Come on!

The only super heros that have been good on the big screen are Batman and Wolverine.

Fantastic Four was bad.

RDJ is a fantastic Tony Stark/Ironman

Hmm... So, Batman and Robin was good? Or how about Batman Forever?
Heck, I didn't like the Tim Burton one either. Well, it was alright. But the characters were nothing like the comics.
X-Men triology was medicore. First Class>>>X-Men 1, 2, and 3.

Now that I think about it:

No, people shouldn't be allowed to have their own opinions if that''s how they're going to use them.

The Avengers was terrible? You're clearly a credible source of cinematic critique.

Well... I'll put it this way:
I see why people felt it was "terrible". In many respects it was more about a spectacle than it was about any really deep, coherent plot on its own. Really, it was always going to be somewhat unwieldy. It felt marginally more thoughtful than the terrible Transformers movies and in many ways appealed to the same crowd.
That being said - it was damn entertaining. When you take the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole it is a much more compelling story. The way that all of the movies came together was the true triumph of The Avengers and the movie shouldn't be thought of as a stand alone film. Joss Whedon did a great job given the tone and the material provided, especially considering that the movie had to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
I think Disney realizes that it has to be versatile. Star Wars has to be Star Wars and I think they'll respect that. Since the Star Wars universe is well established cinematically they will have little choice but to acknowledge what has come before and try to take what worked best about those films. If they made Episode VII like The Avengers I'd be severely disappointed. If Joss Whedon were to make that film I'd expect it to be nothing like Marvel.
Disney has the ability to make appealing films using a broad cinematic language. Look at Pirates of the Caribbean for example (mostly the earlier ones) - they took an interesting source material that would market well and turned it into a unique film series.

The avengers was awful... the Hulk gets mad and attacks everyone on the plane, yet when he gets mad on the ground he can somehow tell friend from foe?

Thor as god of thunder can't summon a storm and kill every last invader?

They didn't put any limitations on the superhero abilities which is what makes the entire thing strange. I mean individually, Ironman has to stay powered up, the Hulk has to harness his anger (usually unsuccessfully, except when a girl he likes is present), Thor can't kill his brother and becomes mortal upon entering Earth. All of these limitations are present in the individual storylines (like superman and kryptonite) yet somehow when they make a megahit movie, the pure enjoyment factor is that they are all untouchable?

I rest my case, the Avengers was a terrible move.
