George Lucas still has a ton of say in it
This is the part that worries me.

i think Disney is going to do an excellent job on episodes 7, 8 and 9 cause Tron legacy was a pretty good movie and Disney made it and number two George Lucas still has a ton of say in it so i think they are going to be great movies. :D
Stop saying things like that! George Lucas ruined the prequals, him going near the new Disney hotness Star Wars would be disastrous! Disney owning Star Wars is a great sign of things to come, but I fear that Disney will over buy and end up like AD Vision.

They could've done a KotOR movie, or even a gritty Republic Commando movie. But no, gotta do the same ol stuff again....

The funny thing is that there was one movie that DID take place in the star wars continuity, but wasn't about the republic. Rather, it was about an ewok, a little girl and an old man. I forget the name though.

A KOTOR movie sounds awesome...Republic Commando idea could just become a "sci-fi black hawk down".

What I think made KOTOR so great is that it brought back the adventurous fun of the original movies. The Star Wars comics seem to be doing this as well.

No matter what the era, if Lucas made the prequels during KOTOR's time, they would've still sucked. So if the sequel trilogy can bring back the fun of the original trilogy that would be awesome, no matter when they set the movies.

It could end up as Black Hawk Down...or it could end up being a thoughtful intelligent movie on the identity crisis of clones and a great action movie besides. So there's that.

...who am I kidding, I just wanna know what happened to 1207.

Oh definitely, I guess I was more or less commentating on what would sound good on paper and...what the studio's would end up making

I think that Disney will do a good job with Star Wars. I haven't seen any of the Marvel movies, but I like most Disney movies I have seen.

As long as Disney doesn't go straight-up "Hail Corporate", we shouldn't have too much to worry about.

We do have J.J. Abrams in a considerable seat of power here. Let's hope that the new Star Wars films don't look like the new Star Trek films.

The problem with that statement is that the new Treks were pretty much Star Wars with Captain Kirk and crew.

I'd sorta call that an insult to Star Wars.

Not that I didn't enjoy the reboot...it was just so...reboot.

Also:

Come on son. We both know Sev wouldn't go down that easily. Even if he was "killed" there's always Bacta tanks.

Yes, I did spend time thinking about this after completing the game.

I am not a Trekkie in any way, so I'm either not appreciative of the older Treks or I'm not looking through rose-tinted glasses with added nostalgia filters, but I enjoyed the new Star Trek movies waaay better than the old Treks AND the new Star Wars, so I have a lot of hope for dis projeck

I am worried, because disney can do some strange things.
Lucas was the originater and has very high standards. I think they have potential to be interesting, but not as good as the 1st 6. I will wait until I hear what people are saying about them before watching them
