This article states that Disney's getting the whole shibang: LucasArts, Skywalker Sound, ILM, etc. They're allegedly trying to keep them headquartered in California though to avoid screwing a ton of people out of their jobs.
While the bad possibilities are tremendous (remake is the first that comes to mind), the positive ones far outweigh them. Think of Marvel. Disney bought them back in 2009, and since that time they've come out with Iron Man II, Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, X-Men Origins, and X-Men First Class. I haven't heard too many complaints about the quality of those movies. They may not be legendary "films," but they're sure as hell fun to watch. With some of the "Disney" talent, like Jon Favreau or maybe Joss Whedon, I think a new Star Wars could be legendary, depending on which storyline they choose to follow that is. I know I'm kind of keeping my fingers crossed for the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, but taking established novels like that into movies is doubtful imo.
The possibility for side-project/smaller scale Star Wars movies is also awesome. Suffice it to say, as a fanboy through and through, I'm fucking pumped.
a remake is a must in my opinion, have you watched the originals lately? i watched a new hope at the weekend and i have to say its looking more and more dated and ropey, Now i love the movies (all 8) and everything star wars, but i would happily sit through a remake of the original three, they can remake them scene for scene ala footloose for all i care, but the dialogue and plot and acting needs some serious work, If you need any convincing go watch a new hope and look for the tears of grief streaking down Lukes face when he pops home to find the burnt skeletal remains of the two people who have loved,clothed and fed him for the past however many years? no fuck that hes like " well bugger this farming lark im off to get me some of that princess sister pussy"
Or the fact the technical data read out that R2 is carrying is fucking flawed , they ran out of budget so hes stuck with the early concept computer graphic with the deathstar focus dish on the death star equator , but as we k now the dish is on the northern hemisphere in the finished model.
This one gets me every time,they have swaped out entire actors and added walls and hundreds of other stuff in the revamps, but R2 still delivers the incorrect plans !!!
Dont get me wrong i love george Lucas, the man is a ledgend, but alot of what is great about star wars has been created by others, hes great a inspiring people and getting them to think about doing things differently and i cant fault what he has done for cinema, but fuck me im glad hes handing over the writing/directing to new blood.
