I was just about to make my own forum post on this, but you did it already.

I saw this too. Good lord its like Episode I all over again!
In all seriousness though, there's enough of an expanded universe that Disney will either F*ck up and ruin it or win epically and bring back the era of GOOD sci-fi movies.

Smart movie from Disney. At this point the bar has been set so low that they could replace the cast with Mickey and friends and still make a more entertaining movie than the prequels were
If you're reading this, you're awesome and you should feel awesome.

Mine too, even though Lucas won't be director.

To be honest, I liked Lucas's work on #3, though I think #2 and #1 were lackluster.

I wouldn't be so harsh on Disney, the Avengers was good and up until the 4th movie, they did an ok job with pirates of the Caribbean.

That being said, I don't think I could ever get used to a different actor playing Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia. Instead of continuing the story I'd rather they go back even further and make a Knights of the Old Republic Style film.

Still, I'd rather take a 50/50 chance of the movie being decent over no movie at all. If it's crap we can always just go watch the originals again.

True, it can't be worse than the last three.

In all likelihood, these will be comparable to the episodes I/II/III since it's damn near impossible to capture what the originals had 30 years ago. I mean yeah, maybe Disney can spend a lot of money and hit one out of the park, but even if it's 1000% successful and sells more tickets than Avatar, it still isn't going to be The Empire Strikes Back - Similarly, Star Trek will never again reach the epic heights of TOS. The proportions of epicness that the original Star Wars (and Trek) achieved are only possible when you are blind-siding the culture with a brand-new flavor of awesomeness never before imagined, and that is rarely if ever achieved through sequels.

What would they need to do to prove me wrong? Well, first off, they'd have to find a star to break out like Harrison Ford did. A Harrison Ford-level actor comes around maybe once a decade. Why do they need this? Because to be ultimately successful, you need a character that can bridge the gap between sci-fi enthusiasts and people who really don't care about Star Wars to begin with. The best of the best movies transcend genre.

They'd also need an original and ground-breaking feel to it. Crisp, cutting-edge battle scenes will be the bare-minimum here. I think, personally, their biggest opportunity will be with the hand-to-hand scenes. The big ship battles will have to be great as well, but I think that if they can improve upon the fighting scenes (e.g., parrying laser blasts) then they will have a good shot. Ever since the Matrix came out, the bar for fighting scenes has been raised significantly. There have been very few movies who have been able to compete at that level (Kill Bill being a notable exception) and for a movie 15+ years younger than the original Matrix, it BETTER not leave me wanting.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Is As someone who really understands the film industry, this whole thing seems stupid. What do you people expect? Disney to shoehorn their own characters in? CGI Mickey Mouse in a light saber duel against Yoda? No. This episode 7? This thing was written by Lucas years ago. Furthermore why all this hate against Disney? When was the last time they even made a bad movie? Man the Lion King is my sh*t. they own Marvel and The Avengers was a great film. Also they own Miramax and Pulp Fiction is a much better film than Star Wars.

The last thing we need is for them to focus on the CGI fighting again.

It's not just hate at Disney, it's more hate at them for trying to destroy Star Wars even further.

You honestly think this is Disney's idea? I knew this was coming years ago. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? And then he releases A prequel in 3D? That sold very well. This next one will be in 3D as well, but high quality 3D like Avatar.

They would have been planning this for a LONG time if they have officially announced it. You don't just decide "Hey, lets make Episode 7 of one of the biggest and most influential movie franchises of all time."

Um, why? 4, 5, 6 fighting scenes sucked in comparision to, say, Obi-wan vs. Anakin

And you know nothing about it at all.....and you just assume its gonna suck. Star Wars was never "destroyed".

I'll say that 1 wasn't that great, but how were 2 and 3 bad?

CGI looks too fake. I honestly prefer the puppets, sets and models of the older star wars.
I think it makes the movie rely more on substance than long chaotic battle scenes.
