In 2015, we're planning to release Star Wars Episode 7 – the first feature film under the "Disney-Lucasfilm" brand. That will be followed by Episodes 8 and 9 – and our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years. We're very happy that George Lucas will be creative consultant on our new Star Wars films and that Kathleen Kennedy, the current Co-Chair of Lucasfilm, will executive produce. George handpicked Kathy earlier this year to lead Lucasfilm into the future. She'll join Disney as President of Lucasfilm, reporting into Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn and integrating and building the Star Wars franchise across our company.

If they come up with a decent story and keep Lucas as far away from it as possible. I might be on board. Might, I use that term as loose as I can.

Third time will be the charm for Mr. Kitsch.

Is George involved?


Might be interested if he isnt.
OP, dude.

"Ms. Kennedy will serve as executive producer on new Star Wars feature films, with George Lucas serving as creative consultant."

I just finished re-watching the Red Letter Media review of Phantom Menace too.

I guess the silver lining is they'll do more reviews for the next (3) movie(s).

It can only get better.
exactly, not sure why people are upset about this. disney knows it's a huge gamble, and there's no way they would be so ready to announce it if they didn't have a great idea for a trilogy. this should be fucking awesome.
