Sucks 200 character limit.
My favorite character can beat up your favorite character.
If he just wanted to see 7, 8, and 9 get made, and didn't want to make them himself, I'm sure he could have just done what he did with The Empire Strikes Back & Return of the Jedi; just find some other people to write the screenplays and direct them.
Besides the Avengers which was really a Marvel property what has Disney done live action that can be trusted to handle Star Wars ?
I could cite Pulp Fiction and Clerks, both under Miramax and some of the first movies that came under it's Disney Management. Doesn't really mean a damn thing. It would really depend on who will manage LucasFilms now that George selled it.
...And does Mr. Goddanm Batman says so much as ''Thanks''? OF COURSE not. That'd hardly be GRIM AND GRITTY, would it?
