Disney have bought Lucasfilm and in the press release it states:

Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for release in 2015, with more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future.
Thought it was shelved, guess the Mouse has given it the go ahead.

There is plenty of milk in those udders, may the milking process begin.

We've had tons of Bond and Potter only fair that my favourite movie series also gets a nice healthy amount of sequels. 6 Star Wars movies just wasn't enough.

I agree bring on more Star Wars. I want them to carry on from the 6th film though, i don't want it to be set like 100 years later or anything. I also want to see it look more like episode 4,5 and 6 and less like 1,2 and 3. All that computer graphics stuff slightly ruins Star Wars to me.

When i first heard the news about this i was shocked, then concerned then happy, then concerned again. Shocked because i can't believe that George Lucas is selling Lucasfilm, concern because i heard Disney are taking over.......Disney happy because i love Star Wars, concerned again because........well............ you know...........it's Disney

I would be happy to see another 50 Star Wars films.

It shouldn't be too much of a problem because when you think about it the Star Wars franchise wasn't a series of adult gritty science fiction films, they were always children's films anyway.

Disney might even make them better than the previous trilogy.

My initial reaction was:

WTF?!!! That's it, Star Wars is ruined !

But.... On further reflection, it might actually be a good thing..

Let's face it, George has lost interest in doing anything else with Star Wars on the big screen, and even the much talked about TV series has been stuck in development hell for years.
And, much as we might like to think so, we old fans don't own the idea and films!

Disney has the pockets and imagination to take the 'franchise' forward.
Good luck to 'em and I hope they produce something to thrill a new generation of kids!

I visualise Lucas as an old haggard version of the Milka cow, with laminitis of the hoof and mastitis of the udder-shudder...

Depends on the milking process, Im seeing less Heidi & Peter The Goat Boy, more, industrial strength processing!
