Right I don't feel sorry for poor old Lucas lol. I am just glad it's in the hands of a company, that WILL put the name to good use. But we need good writers to go with that director too. I am hoping we get a ton of great stories to put on film. Nevermind the books that are out now, lets more this timeline about 100 years later hehe. Make some new stories witht he same two droids part of that story too.
Come on guys, Mark Hamil isn't to old to play Luke. They can make this years later after Episode 6, and Mark can play an old Jedi Master Luck Skywalker. So how is it he can't play a role in the new Star Wars film that is planned. I say it can and should work.
You might be right about that:
Episode VII would begin roughly 20 (or perhaps 30 or 40) years after the end of Return of the Jedi (according to Lucas in 1980 and 1982).
I was reading the article and read that Disney wants to do more Star Wars movies. I am hoping that Disney puts feelers out to the fans to see what direction the movies should go. For example, take the storyline out past Return of the Jedi. I think the past (Clone Wars) has been done enough.
