    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes, I know these are likely going to suck but a fan can have some new hope right?

    A new Star Wars every 2 to 3 years? Before those recent abominations came out I would have been excited, but now I'm just :fu:

    Somebody get Tokyo Slim in here. This is the clearest sign yet that the zombie apocalypse is coming.

    I'm unsure how to process this news. On one hand, Lucas has done little but rape and destroy my childhood memories in the last years. On the other hand, putting the franchise in fresh hands may be just the shot in the arm it needs to rekindle some of the spark that made the originals so great. Yet on my third hand, I have little love for Disney these days other then the Pixar films.

    What's a fanboy to do? :puzzled:

    They need to do the Timothy Zahn trilogy into movies.

    My vote goes to the Timothy Zahn trilogy for VII, VIII, and IX. Those three books captured the essence of the episodes IV, V, and VI like no other Star Wars book has.


    EDIT: Rambo beat me to it.

    That would be awesome. Biggest problem is going to be them recasting the characters with new actors. They would only be slightly older then at the end of ROTJ so fans would be a lot more picky on the casting then they would if we were talking decades earlier or later.

    Look we all know what this may end up being, but I am going to keep an open mind for now. I'd like to hear some details on the direction they plan to take it and who will be handling the script and director duties. Lucas became tone deaf to his core audience and fans over the years. Maybe someone at Disney see this and the opportunity it provides.

    Or it could all suck.

    I hope they go through with 3 new starwars movies. I personally liked starwars 1,2,3 and would welcome 7,8,9. With technology in 2015-18-21 it would make for some pretty amazing films.

    JR...over 10 years ago we witnessed some of the most horrific things ever to be seen on the big screen. I think I could forgive them for recasting our beloved characters if they just give us an engaging story with a decent script (even half-decent would be better than anything we heard delivered in I,II, & III; Liam Neeson could only polish a turd so much). My only caveat would be finding unknown actors to fill the roles.

    That's just where I'm at. I mean, it really can't be any worse than I, II, & III. It just can't.

    Plus, Thrawn is the only worthy villain left in the franchise.

    Disney's done well - Pixar, the Marvel movies. In any case, it can't be worse than the shit Lucasfilms has been putting out.

    Thrawn would be cool, I guess, but recasting everyone sounds kinda shitty.

    They could do the new generation stuff - Yuuzhan Vong would make for some excellent CGI.

    Solid predictions of the outcome and fallout of this deal from Gamasquad.

    He's being too cynical, but I don't think he's that far off with how Disney will try and milk this deal and the properties that come with it. Not that Lucas wasn't already doing that on his own for years, so it's not like we haven't seen a lot of this before.

    Wonder how long it's going to take till we start to hear news on the director and such. Sounds like they have a script almost ready.

    All I care about is getting the original movies on blu-ray. The work's like 90% done already. How about that, Disney?

    Don't forget the Marvel movies. I have faith. I didn't hate I-III, but I wouldn't say that they were good by any means. So yeah, it can only improve.

    I'd like the original movies. Not the bastardized re sequenced crap

    Open with a short of Jarjar getting drawn and quartered by the Imperial Remnant and all will be forgiven
