    Only if Disney thinks it is a better deal to have Marvel publish over Dark Horse.

    No. Lucas was adamant about the comics sticking to the films. The only thing that ever happened was that Marvel characters made reference to the OT as films. See Amazing Spider-Man #251.

    Well, from a purely business perspective it is certainly a better deal for Disney, in that it would give them full control/oversight over the product and not require them to share the profits. The question is whether they think Marvel can produce a product line as good/successful as Dark Horse has. ANd, really, I can't imagine that they wouldn't think that (which is a completely different issue than whether it's actually true).

As lousy a job as Lucas did with the prequels, I can't say I think that handing them off to someone else necessarily improves the odds of better results. It's still a crapshoot, just lik Hollywood always is, creatively.
    On the same boat. If I see theres any sign of improvement on the franchise then I'll give it the time of day but if not I'll take my business elsewhere. Until then I'm looking at this with a cautiously optimistic mindset.

    It would certainly be odd if they were to recast Luke, Leia, and Han though. I'm sure there's plenty of other major characters that come along, but I could see them trying to stick with what everyone already knows.
    Well honestly, the Star Wars Expanded Universe is quite vast and so there is much that they can do post Return of the Jedi. I've been reading a lot of the new Star Wars comics from Dark Horse and they've got some very compelling stories set after the events of ROTJ. Plus, I remember reading back in 2005 that George Lucas had finished re-editing the scripts for Episodes VIII, VIIII and IX in the days after the release of Episode III Return of the Jedi. Plus there is the ever popular Thrawn Trilogy that might actually play a role that will no doubt be at the heart of these new Star Wars movies.

    Anyway, I think that Lucas couldn't have picked a better studio than Walt Disney to carry the Star Wars torch forward. They've already done well with Marvel and things like Prince of Persia and John Carter and I can't wait to see what Disney does with Star Wars.

    @SephirothDZX, A Star Wars world in Kingdom Hearts would be the bee's knees!

    As long as John Williams and The London Symphony Orchestra are on board for any future movies, I believe they'll always feel right. Still, to say I was shocked would be an understatement of epic proportions!

    After having seen the leaked Man of Steel trailer from this past summer's Comic Con I wouldn't complain about Hans Zimmer composing music for this Neo Star Wars Trilogy.

    Recasting everyone will kill my interest in this.

    Thinking about it, isn't this the first time since the 80s that a studio has had a big in-house effects department?

    Trying to wonder how this will affect the numerous novels and the Dark Horse comics, especially given Disney and Marvel's relationship lately. But then a Star Wars/Marvel crossover comic would mean two of my favourite fandoms ever meeting - throw in Doctor Who and I'd be squeeing for a whole year.

    Anyway, interested to see how these films go, I'm veering for cautious optimism at the moment.

    EDIT: If they just try to remake the originals, that will be stupid. I'm opting for something akin to the 'Legacy of the Skywalkers'.

    My concern as well: What does this mean for the comics and the animated Clone Wars series.

    Default Who should direct the next Star Wars?

    I doubt it'll be Lucas, but I'm throwing out a few names out there to see what people think.
