Doesn't Disney also own ESPN?
Yep.

They own more IPs than people think.

Disney will ruin the whole thing. They are going to turn it into a family-comedy without the serious depth and philosophical adventure that the original trilogy takes you through.

The philosophy, such as it is, was more of a device to drive the adventure. I don't think of Star Wars as philosophical.

Besides, midichlorians are now canon so the philosophy is just so much hot air. Oh George, not everything has to have a scientific explanation.

Well, they could use Episode 7 to fix several of the problems of the prequel. Midchlorians being one of them. The excessive materialism of the era of Clone Wars could be one of the things clouding the vision of the Jedis, while the more spiritualized approach Yoda and Obi-Wan later acquired and passed on to Luke is the "new" way, and one that prevents the kind of blindness they previously had at least.

I can only wince as now this is going to go one of two ways:

1. Disney owns marvel comics now as well, and the Avengers rocked my socks.....hopefully Star Wars will too once again.

2. Starring Justin Beiber as Luke Skywalker, Co-starring Miranda Cogsgrove as Princess Leia, and Zach Galifianakis as Chewbacca..........

I could see them setting it 20-30 years later and have Luke, Leia, and Han be secondary characters, played by the original actors, handing the series to the next generation (much like the III to IV gap). Not sure if Ford would go for it after the Indy IV epic fail, but who knows.

Mark Hamill in particular has had pretty much no career since Jedi, so I'm sure he'd like to be involved.

He was the voice of the Joker in the Batman Animated series and some games. Some consider *him* to be the best Joker of all.

While I admired JJ Abram's reboot of Star Trek, I hope they don't develop a 'parallel' universe or time paradox as a plot contrivance to get us to accept new actors. I would think that moving things up two generations and referring to the old heroes of III through VI in the past tense would solve that issue. Since the entire story arc follows the hero myth track for better or worse with parallels to human history - such as the Roman Empire, the Enlightenment etc.... I could see another 'dark movie coming in VII where the restoration of the Republic at the end of VI leads to some sort of perversion of its goals as in the aftermath of the French or Russian revolutions with a new cast of rebels fighting again to regain freedom.  Something like that...all of this genre of film seems to follow that path so this is not a stretch. I think that the core audience of those who followed the novels and such will be disappointed but they won't reflect the bulk of the mass market Disney will seek to attract. So the next movie won't be a moody 'indie' film with a dark edge..... I just hope they are better constructed than Lucas' reboot in 1 through III and with better acting in the lead roles. He kept killing off the good actors for the most part....

I didn't hate them - they were entertaining - they just could have been better? My son had a bootleg remix that was floating around the internet with the 'best' parts of the three mixed into one, coherent movie. They did tell a good story that way...

Or it could take place in an as-yet unrevealed planet, or "not be based on anything," might not mean literally unrelated to anything.

Well, because it's Episode VII, they probably will use Luke, Han and Leia or their descedants, only they will not follow the Extended Universe stories.

Right now, most likely, they are just throwing different ideas around to see how the public reacts.

It will be an original story not seen in the Extended Universe

Quote
(...) you should know that there is an official canon concerning the Star Wars universe. Those stories cover the years after rebel victory (i.e., after Return of the Jedi). It's written in a series of books called the Thrawn Trilogy, by author Timothy Zahn.
(...)
So is that the basis for Episode 7 or not? I've heard directly from LucasFilm and other sources close to the picture, and they say: Definitely not.
"It's an original story," a LucasFilm source tells me.
In other words, forget the Star Wars novels. Forget the graphic novels. Forget everything you think you know about what happens to Luke Skywalker. According to my sources, Episode 7 will literally be nothing you've ever seen or read before from the Star Wars universe.

It will probably have Luke, Leia and Han.

I hope they die (not literally, maybe as a company) if they completely ignore Star Wars canon and contradict it.

Good point. But at least the Star Wars extended universe still has some pretty good stuff.

May the 21 new martyrs pray for us all.

Please, remember me in your prayers

Lord, protect Egypt, Syria, Lebanon & Iraq.

From a business point of view it makes sense. Using the Extended Universe would put it in the "Book Adaptation" field. And the Extended Universe is no Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, nor a momentary fad like "50 Shades". As books, they don't seem to be good candidates to be sources of adaptations.

They will probably nod to the Extended Universe in some new character names, races and planets, some minor story arcs or scenes. But the storyline will be entirely different.

I would agree with Fabio on that - in that way Disney will nod appreciatively to the Extended Universe  aficionado fans while being able to pen a tale better suited for a mass market, global audience....
