I'm cool with this...I def liked what he did with Star Trek and I was never a Star Trek fan before that remake.

I'm a bit hardcore, but I'm still going to be forever optimistic.

If he can revamp the franchise in similar fashion to how he did Star Trek I will be pleased.

Not the whole restart the universe thing, but give it more pop.

The prequels basically screamed "We were written by an out of touch old man!"

I think the only reason parts 1-3 came out was that other films had started beating Star Wars as the top earning film and Lucas' ego wouldn't accept it.

I honestly wasn't the world's biggest fan of 4-6, but 1-3 were utter crap.

While I'm at it, I wonder if anyone else shares the thought that the saga as a whole could have been a lot more interesting if Luke turned evil.

(I'm talking the story beyond the six movies, mind you)

With inflation taken into account, Star Wars is still the second biggest grossing movie of all time after Gone With the Wind. Unless there's a federal mandate for everyone to see a particular movie, this won't change for the foreseeable future.

Pretty good for a admittedly B-movie serial that was an homage to Flash Gordon and Joseph Campbell. The prequels were successful for what they were aimed at...6-12 year old little boys. Unfortunately, the rest of us are a bit past that age range, the fact that Lucas was never a good nonvisual director, and twenty plus years of unrealistic expectations cemented their fate. I'm still adamant that Episode 3 is worthy of being behind TESB and just behind ANH in the movie hierarchy.

Those were horrible comic storylines that are totally retconned out of the universe. God they were awful.

However, the downfall of Han/Leia's son was pretty good.
