laugh.gif at protecting the brand from a tarnished legacy. Lucas managed to do that on his own. He should forever be grateful that FOX thought the franchise would fail and gave him full royalties to merchandise.

LucasArts, Industrial Light and Magic, Skywalker Sound all of that stuff is under the Lucasfilm umbrella.  Disney owns all of that now.

your right, it was mentioned, but I wouldve thought they wouldve made more of a deal about it. You have a top notch studio with a huge back library. Imagine seeing a Monkey Island kids movie

plus this means that Disney itself can start putting out some great games, since they have a studio in house

Does Lucas direct the new films? And would y'all be interested to see Solo, Luke, or Liea cameo some way in the new film?

No Lucas, and they will recast Luke, Han and Leia. Diff time, diff generation, they could move ahead where they are all old and actually use the same people, Harrison Ford, etc, but no one wants to see them in their 70's, unless it's a Kenobi type usage.

I'm guessing they will simply have to recast them and move ahead after Jedi 5 years or so, my guess, we see Thrawn's storyline play out, which will be UNBELIEVABLE. smokin.gif

I NEVER thought Lucas would sell. This is unbelievable. I'm so freaking geeked right now.

Thrawn, Mara Jade, Yuuzhan Vong, planet of the Sith, Talon Karde, Palleon, Jacen, Jaina, Anakin (not that one) the characters are ENDLESS.

This is an amazing day.

I've always been interested to see a film  involving Jacen, Jaina and Anakin Solo. Ben too

 

I dont follow it heavy, but the length the Star Wars timeline goes is intriguing as hell

They should have left the original series alone. No need for episode 7
EDIT: Lucas is DONE with this franchise. After further review it's time to rejoice!
I also realized that Disney now owns Indiana Jones as well

DO IT!!
post #42 of 1401
The franchise was already ruined with the last 3 episodes. Maybe Disney can improve and make some better flicks but I'm not all that interested yet.

I do hope they James Bond Indiana Jones. Let Ford retire and find somebody new to be Indy so we can keep getting some of the best action adventure history based archaeological mystery movies out there.

While the PT didn't live up to the standards of OT, Star Wars is probably bigger than ever nowadays. That Clone Wars show is pretty good and Celebration VI last month was a zoo. All 6 episodes of the saga already have their place in history and to me, more Star Wars movies, the better.

What are the odds VII, VIII, and IX follow the teenaged kids of Leia and Han hunger games style?

This is what has made me hate George Lucas for so long. There is TONS of material out there, TONS. They could make a new movie every 3 years til the end of time. Seriously, I have every single one of those books I listed, and have read them all. They all translate onto film. Now that doesn't mean you would have to do a book film for film, you could combine multiple books into a film, or a trilogy, or whatever, but you should be able to see Star Wars 47 someday EASY. (we may not be alive by then, but hey. roll.gif ) And Lucas was the one that was always blockin it.

When he did 1-3, and said he didn't have time for 7-9, I wanted to kill him. He's so full of ****. Those stories are already written, all he'd have to do is stop ******g around with the originals and make the films every 3 years, he'da been close to being done by now already. Phantom was 99, Clones 02, Sith 05, he coulda done 7 in 08, 8 in 11 ,and 9 shoulda been out in 2014.

But oh well, I won't bash the dude anymore, we're getting what we want, FINALLY. AND, without his dumb ***, hopefully no more Jar Jar Binks type ****. Disney worries me with the "kiddieness" angle, but they didn't over kid it for Avengers and the Marvel franchise, no reason they should do it to Star Wars. They can easily still keep movies in the PG-13 area and still have plenty of darkness in it.

This is really shocking. Why would Lucas sell something he himself founded. He could have stepped down and still had other people run the company.

 

This is a Power Move by Disney. 4 Billion dollars is a STEAL. For the entire Lucas Film Company? eek.gif

That's Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Not to mention Lucasfilm has been the leading the industry in special effects since they were founded.

They're going to make that 4 Billion back back so fast.

I guarantee the films are going to great. Disney did justice to both Pixar and Marvel properties.

We also expect to create significant value in the film business. We plan to release the first new Star Wars film in 2015, and then plan to release one film every two to three years. These films will be released and distributed as part of our target slate of 8-10 live-action films per year, and will augment Disney’s already strong creative pipeline for many years to come. Lucasfilm has not released a Star Wars film since Revenge of the Sith in 2005. However, adjusted for inflation, as well as growth in both international box office and 3D, we estimate the three most recent Star Wars films would have averaged about $1.5 billion in global box office in today’s dollars. This speaks to the franchise’s strength, global appeal and the great opportunity we have in the film business.

We also expect to utilize Star Wars in other businesses including Parks & Resorts, in games and in our television business. These initiatives were also considered in our valuation.

 

 

Feels like Star Wars is finally going to get the treatment it deserves.

The next 3 movies are sequels set after Episode 6. Apparently Lucas planned 4 more trilogies since the 80's.

 

 


 

 

Quote:
Mark Hamill has stated that Lucas told him in 1976, during filming in the desert of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, that four Star Wars trilogies were planned. Lucas suggested Hamill could have a cameo role in Episode IX, which might be filmed in 2001.[15][16] A Time magazine story in March 1978, quoting Lucas, also contained the assertion there would be 10 further Star Wars films after Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.[17] A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back producer Gary Kurtz was also aware of proposed story elements for Episodes VII to IX before 1980.

enough of the lucas bashing. please cut that crap out. the prequels were NOT hot trash......were they underwhelming? did my imagination expect something more fun, more intellectual, more thorough?  Of course!  but my imagination was also greatly intrigued by the newfound fact that Darth Vader made c3p0 and therefore had a hand in his own redemption......man the prequels have some mind blowing stuff in it if u just need to get passed jar jar and the weak natalie portman/hayden christiansen dynamic.

 

 

Lucas is one of the greatest directors ever simply due to the fact that he  wrote and directed the GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE - star wars episode 4: a new hope.

dont worry, be happy.  disney has some amazing talent at their disposa (writers/composers etc), they are going to do this series justice i can just about guarantee it......im beyond geeked this is incredible.  

post #57 of 1401
Star Wars was my entire childhood growing up. Like most diehards, I hated the prequel trilogy. I'm a bit reserved that this may turn out bad, but I'm extremely hyped for this. I wonder what direction they're gonna go with since the EU is so damn big.

greatest of all time? Sit down, kay. The only film tht was solid through and through was Empire. ANH was ok, but Jedi was bad. The prequels werent bad, but they suffered from horrible casting and script choices. And I def agree. Cut out jar jar, and recast both anakins and the trilogy is great.

Lucas cant write dialogue. It isnt his strong suit. He needs to stick to consulting on the characters and world.
