    I'd say Nathon Fillon as Han Solo but some might confuse him as Mal Reynolds from Firefly.

    That'll start after the movie comes out. I'll admit, I'm surprised. I never would have thought Lucas would have sold the rights like that. He must have good faith in Disney.

    That will never happen. If it involves any of the OT characters, the films will be completely original and not use anything directly from the books, other than what little made their way into the PT and the SE's.

    No, but I suddenly got this image in my head of Mickey Mouse trying use candy to get me to jump into his car. Messed up.

    Disney buying Star Wars: Does this mean that Yoda will be on 'Once Upon A Time'?

    Or the new trilogy actually beat Avatar and Titanic combined.

    Serioly it has a potential of what happen to Star Trek after they kick Gene Upstairs for Star Trek II

    This could be interesting. I mean Disney not only gets Star Wars which is a mega-franchise, but they get ILM and LucasArts games division. I wonder if this means Marvel will be publishing Star Wars comics going forward?
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    For all the complaints about Lucas' work on the Prequel Trilogy (maybe even RETURN OF THE JEDI), I hope the new movies, regardless of who directs, maintain that quintessential "Lucasian" (is that a word?) feel that defines STAR WARS. It's true that many of Lucas' decisions were dubious and execution flawed, and he really *did* need other sets of critical eyes to reign in his excesses, but all that being said...a STAR WARS movie should have a certain feel to it that distinguishes it from all other movies. I hope that at least that part of Lucas' influence continues to be felt in the new movies, even as the flaws are corrected.

    just please god give us something better than the cone wars movie animation
    They're better off making it live action. Animation of that sort can be expensive. But yeah if they play their cards right they might make people appreciate SW again

    TBH the day I expected the rights to SW to be sold is the day after they announced that Lucus passed on. So yeah this is more surprising than Disney buying Marvel

    Maybe we'll get some good Star Wars movies out this, and the original movies on Blu-ray that aren't transfers from laserdisc.

    Also seems this will grow Disney's video game wing.

    Regarding more movies. If the actors could get in shape for it, I'd totally be game for a Yuzoong Vong trilogy.


    This I agree with because it makes a lot of sense. And saves my childhood from trama therapy now.

    Actually it's more complicated than just Disney owning a specific character for them to be Disney Princesses.

    That was a joke, but really there are a lot of rights issues that will be involved even if Disney does "Own" the Star Wars franchise now.
