    Afterall Lucas felt like he betrayed his fans with the prequels, the special editions of the old movies, Indiana Jones 4 etc. and that his last production flopped at the box-office.

    I think it's a smart move since Disney has done those awesome rides and shows based on the SW and Indiana Jones films and Lucas is retiring as i think Disney will care good care of his company.

    Disney did wonders for other properties they bought like Pixar, Marvel and The Muppets and all struck gold plus did great on Princess and Frog, Tangled and Wreck it Ralph to a couple of live action films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron Legacy. Afterall Disney has hired a good writer and a fine director who is more of a Star Wars fan than a Star Trek fan as he is giving up ST to do what he was meant to do and was written by a fan of SW who did the great screenplay to Toy Story 3 plus the reunion of the old actors. Abrahams stated his movie will use less CGI than the prequels with only a small bit but mainly practical and will live up to the spirit of the old trilogy.

    We'll even get a kick ass SW/Indiana Jones park at the Disneyland/Disneyworld parks which should be sweet. Hell by 2019 Fox will give up SW and give it to Disney and we'll have the unscrewed it original versions.

      Really is cool to think what Disney could do with the whole Star Wars franchise. Taken in total, it's more like a Star Wars Universe. Lots of territory there for Disney to work on.

        I read somewhere that Disney plans on releasing 5 Stars Wars movies with one released every year. That makes me a bit skeptical.

          I don't see that happening blue. Not unless they were all nearly completed over the course of four or five years and then began releasing them one at a time.

          But yes, having Disney involved makes me hopeful for some great films. Disney has proven they know what fans want in a long loved property (The Avengers). Bring them on!

                Gotta source on that? I don't believe Lucas ever felt like he betrayed his audience. Too self-absorbed to ever notice negative reaction, otherwise he would have changed his process to avoid that happening over and over again, which we all know didn't happen, so just where do you get this from?

                  It's just a theory on why he sold his company and wants to retire as he is probably tired of being ridiculed all the time

                    Ah, I see. Maybe he should have stopped doing ridiculous things, then. I suppose selling the company and retiring is one way to do that

                            The writing and Disney backing are plenty to fuel hope, but bringing back the original cast to reprise their roles doesn't hurt either.

                              I have complete confidence in Disney being involved with the new
                              Star Wars Trilogy. I mean, their acquisitions of Marvel and The
                              Muppets Franchise did wonders for the respected properties.
