Disney is planning the release of a new Star Wars film in 2015

Disney has acquired Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in stock and cash…

And in what is mind-blowing news for fans, Star Wars will be getting a new lease on life…without Lucas. The next films will be made by “a new generation of filmmakers.”


I think what we all fear is more or less captured by this picture:

Jon Stewart

The upside: George will not directing.

The downside: everything else in the picture could very well be in the film.

Actually, I do have a fair amount of faith in Disney. There is a small chance, however, that it will simply be all Jar Jar, all the time.

Of course, I will still watch them. Even if they are bad, probably six times. It’s a problem, i know.

Postscript: To understand my disillusionment with Lucas and prequels, do watch this brilliant film commentary.
