Milking the cow it seems. Star Wars is George Lucas. They should just start a new IP instead, but that would take creativity and risks, something hard to come by these days.

Ol' Walt bought all the follow on books of the Wizard of Oz.

Disney has never done anything wiht them except a cartoon version of "The Marvelouys Land of Oz", entitiled "Return to Oz"

Not Owned by Disney:Owned the rights tby Disney:
I was always surprised Eisner never did anything with them.

After "John Carter" I think Disney can handle the Star Wars Saga.

lol no

I think we can all agree that Empire is the best Star Wars movie and it was neither written nor directed by Lucas. Lucas did the story, Irvin Kershner directed and Lawrence Kasdan and Leigh Brackett penned the screenplay.

with a competent director and a good screenplay, I think the potential is there to wipe the collective bad taste out of fans mouths that the prequels undoubtedly left everyone.

skeptical of the outcome but this is most definitely the best thing for the franchise. I expect them to adapt some of the post-return of the jedi books into movies (Heir to the Empire trilogy anyone?) ...... which I will definitely be looking forward to.

In the movie world we have right now of almost all sequels and mostly terrible 'original' IPs...i think i'm excited.

Yes it is. Bay is an awful story teller. Just awful. High on effects, low on story.

Star wars wasn't a huge hit because of the special effects. Those were tertiary. It was a huge hit because it told a great story effectively.

Scrum's definition of freebasing crack is anal sex without a condom.

Just an FYI.
