But what stories will we see? Does anyone have an idea what they might be planning? Spoilers please lol.

Well there's a bout 30-40 novels (at least), comics, graphic novels. All based pre and post the original six film series so take your pick. Video games...

In all honesty if they're following the Marvel Model expect Jedi Origins, most likely 1 offs filling in original jedi v sith v madolran conflicts.

Backs Stories of Yoda, Han meeting Chewie, the bounty hunter stories, jabba the hutt...

After the 6 ieThrawn and the New Republic.


If following Marvel Model expect them to sample the literature and hey presto screen time.


So like there's about a dozen films right there and it took me like 5 seconds to think of that.

Also baring in mind there last big film (John Carter) was taken from a book series.

while starwars is certainly big enough, it will almost certainly have to be new characters that we have never heard from before so they just become 'star wars' films and that might oversaturate the market for that type of film.

if they no longer feel special, and there is no immediate connection to the characters then it might work against them.

then again they are often made as kids films, and probably more so with the disney brand so they should still do well.
Er yeah but not everyone (as in most except for the group of fans) knows the decades of story behind the character, which though Iconic is not really known or understood or why do you think the first of almost any of the films is a back story.

I saw a documentary a while back saying that the most successful marvel titles sell 100K copies a month Worldwide... If a film relays on that level of fandom alone you'd be lucky to get a Television Movie budget much less an epic blockbuster.

Who knew the History of John Carter, I did and would recommend anyone who reads to check out the depth of adaptions of Edgar Rice Burroughs especially the lesser known character (TARZAN). But it didn't stop them turning out a big budget film production.

But for classic pulp fiction Burroughs Tarzan pisses all over Howard's Conan.

Lucasfilm's co-chairman and soon-to-be president, Kathleen Kennedy, has told employees she wants the company to produce two or three films a year (it?s averaged fewer than four per decade), and first up is Star Wars: Episode VII for 2015.
It doesn't say anything about making two to three "Star Wars" movies per year. If you read the quote as it was intended, she wants to make two to three Lucasfilms movies a year. Big difference in interpretation. It just so happens that "Star Wars: VII" is the first Lucasfilm to be considered.

Link: Lucasfilm to Make 2-3 Movies a Year

ScreenRant got the story right.

I think if they make 2 or 3 Stars Wars movies a year, I will die a little bit inside every time one comes out. At that point they're not making Star Wars, they're making crap.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm actually really happy that Lucas sold the rights to Disney. While I didn't mind the prequel trilogy, there were bits in it I didn't like, and too many things which smacked of Lucas simply doing it because he's George Lucas and he's God and he can do whatever the frak he likes because he invented Star Wars (Can you tell how much I luuurve Lucas? ) I really enjoyed the first clone war cartoons, as they spanned the story between AoTC and RoTS brilliantly. There was no need for there to be another clone wars series telling a different set of stories in the same time period (and I've refused to watch them) Then we have the introduction of this Little Miss...

Ahsoka Tano

... further pointing out that Lucas is not only a sell out, but a borderline deviant as well

So Lucas sold out to Disney... Whoopdefrakindo... The guy was a hack writer and mediocre director anyway, he certainly can't hold a candle to a director like Sir Ridley Scott... So Disney are now going to be in charge... I have no beef with that, Disney's output speaks for itself in terms of quality, so Disney being in charge of Star Wars can only mean decent output with no "I think this, and what I say goes" interference from Lucas
