Still waiting patiently for a Top Gun-style fighter squadron movie. Could be amazing.

Why aren't they just creating episodes I, II and III? We have been waiting for 34 years now...

I agree with your sentiment, but don't follow how Darth Maul is not a new character. We just very briefly saw him in a single episode.

Or he is pliable enough to just do what they say.

came here to say this. Which given Disney's penchant for quality films recently is very encouraging.

As usual, there will be people to complain that there are new ones coming, complain that episode 7 wasn't as good, complain that episode 8 didn't live up to their expectations either.

I, for one, welcome all of this. I accepted long ago that episode 3 could have very well been the last new Star Wars movie ever. If you feel the saga should "end," it's very simple, don't watch.

Am I the only one who feels Disney buying Star Wars for 2 billion was a low price?

THIS. You all be some jaded MFs. (Also, superheroes suck.)

I think Disney paid $4 billion, though, right?

Lucas messed up Darth Maul, he could have been more. He has the awesome looks (for an evil character in SW) and a saber new to the universe.

Now if he comes back (to movie universe) no explanation will make sense. :(

I like to think of the porgs as his Trojan horse to get carte blanche to do whatever he wants.

If you don't watch them, talk about them, or post in threads about them you can have visibly less star wars in your life.

I largely tuned out of Star Wars with the abysmal prequels. I got dragged along to The Force Awakens by a bunch of friends. Frankly, it just felt like another Abrams gig, lots of homage, but pretty flat directing and predictable twists in a universe that despite its apparent enormity is shallow as a puddle. Regardless of how good a director Johnson may be, as far as franchises go, Star Wars really requires a full reboot at this juncture. Scrap absolutely everything that's gone before and start from fresh, a move which would afford them the opportunity to drop all of Lucas's more questionable additions to the world building.

Unfortunately, Disney is so far in now, that despite the actual paucity of the material they're working with, financially they're unable to let go of the existing legacy versus attempting to milk it for all its worth.
