So, three more Star Wars films, that will be less likely to suck, but will potentially include musical numbers with dance routines and a Justin Bieber cameo...

I'm not sure what to think...

There are Episodes 7, 8, 9 and T.Zahn created them. Get lost Disney and Lucas!

Disney owns the Marvel and the Avengers movie and thats an awesome film. Hopefully we can expect the same from the future starwars movies.

Here are some official Lucasfilm links, including a video with Lucas talking about it:

NEW STAR WARS MOVIES ANNOUNCED AS DISNEY ENTERS AGREEMENT TO ACQUIRE LUCASFILM LTD.

NEW VIDEO SERIES: A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE FUTURE OF STAR WARS

At the moment, I'm still too dumbfounded and trying to process the conflicting wirlwind of feelings I have out the news.

I am just glad that George Lucas will be out of the picture. Hopefully Disney will care about the fans more and maybe... just maybe... they will release the original starwars on DVD without all of that extra crap in there. Maybe they will even restore Han shooting first!

Not just Lucasfilm, but also the subsidiaries ILM & Skywalker Sound...

personally, I think it could mean a new lease on life for Star Wars, and when it comes down to it there's already Lucasfilm attractions in the Disney parks, this was the natural progression...

And I'm not just saying this because I work for the Mouse. Very Happy

George Lucas will be executive creative consultant for the new films, not unlike Roddenberry was for the first six Trek films. Sorry, Lucas is not completely out of the picture.

Since 7-9 were part of Lucas' original storyline, I hope Lucas isn't out of the loop. I'd like to see the new films be based upon the original outline, rather than just be 3 unconnected films that happen to take place in the Star Wars Universe.

As a Lucasfan, I'm still sorting out my thoughts and feelings on this. But I will say that Fantasy Flight Games must be very pleased about new Star Wars films. That can only help RPG sales.

Here is Disney's official press release.

...Let's all keep our fingers crossed that the new films will be more in the spirit of the originals that we remember.

According to this, the new movies will definitely NOT be based on any existing books. They will be completely original stories. That is great news!

Disney is doing what I already did in regards to post-RotJ continuity: Pressing the reboot button and disregarding all of it.
