    I'm looking forward to Sith Ewoks. They were a tough out using sticks and stones, imagine if they could harness force lightning?

    I think a movie that delves into the history of the Jedi would be cool. Like, long long long before the first six. The intro would be awesome...long long ago, longer than previous, in a galaxy far far away...

    Not sure if this was brought up elsewhere in the thread, but...

    Keep in mind that the different trilogies cover a different generation.

    The prequel trilogies have Anakin and Obi-Wan as relatively young men, with Luke an Leia just born.

    Then the main trilogy has Luke, Leia, and Han as young people, with Darth Vader and Obi-Wan as older men.

    So in the sequel trilogy, I would expect that Luke, Leia, and Han would be older, and that the trilogy would focus on the next generation, whatever that may be. That would work with the ages of the original cast, and it would also fit with the arc myth of each trilogy focusing on a single generation.

    I'm also betting money that the sequels will have little to nothing to do with the Expanded Universe, since Disney doesn't want to pay credit to those who created the characters in the novels, comic books, and so forth. So doing such a trilogy would be easier for Disney to do in this way.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    As for the question posed...To be honest, I wanna see 7, as opposed to 3.5. Just get an all new cast. I think that Fassbender dude could rock it.
    The quality of the filmmaking itself is not the worrisome issue here.

    Rather, the writing of the storylines is.

    Just look at what Disney did to "Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles." Or how subpar their animated movies have become. Or "John Carter of Mars."

    I agree that George Lucas was a crappy writer. But at least he gave the whole Star Wars universe a singular vision, one that is best when he's the producer, as seen in the high quality stories of "Clone Wars" tv show.

    With Disney, such storylines made be under too much pressure of committees, or too many people wanting to put in their own idea in the story, no matter how well or badly it might fit. And so the result could be closer to "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen."

    Any Star Wars film is good news as far as I'm concerned. I thought that Universe would die with George Lucas.

    Maybe they can do a real one that shows how honest the Sith is, in comparison to the Jedi.

    Anakin saw through the lies of the Jedi...how come everyone else can't?

    Problem is, the expanded universe is canon, and if Disney start ****ing with canon, they will get bombed by angry fanboys dressed as C3PO.

    Re: New star wars: Iii.5 or vii?

    Star Wars is one of those things that the more they mess with it, the more they screw it up. The original trilogy was magic. I still watch the darned things, and they never get old. The "prequel" just sucked. Lousy acting, lousy scripts, lousy stories, a mere shadow of the original. Desperately disappointing. I haven't been able to even stomach the thought of watching any of them a second time.

    If Disney can restore the magic of that universe far-far away, more power to them. But color me skeptical.
