The fuck? Does this mean we'll go in to the EU? Or will they ignore it? Because that sounds like a cluster fuck either way.

Keep George away from the director's (and producer's) chair and we'll be good. Just let him write the basic outline and name some new characters, that's it.

Please go with the Timothy Zahn trilogy..
Don't I wish...

But honestly? I wouldn't mind if they went far into the future and as far away from the setting of the original films as much as possible. Luke, Vader and them have been done to death.

Oh God, I'm going to be sick

(Although I'd be massively hyped if a competent writer and director get involved)

I don't think this is a bad thing at all, by 2015 it will have been the better part of a decade since the second trilogy concluded. With some new leadership and creative talent I could definitely see Star Wars having a decent shot at redemption here.

I feel like i'm in an alternative world.

People are pretending this is a bad thing for the Franchise...

and lucas was a good thing, for the franchise?

weird.
I doubt anybody's pretending this is a bad thing. I actually feel like challenging Disney to make Star Wars any worse.

Unbearably "kiddy" nonsense? Been done.
Ridiculous fucking with canon? Oh boy, has it been done.

Outside of redoing the original trilogy as a musical, or the sequels being Marvel style "What Ifs?" where Anakin didn't turn evil, and to be honest even that can't be worse then THE COARSENESS OF SAND AND THE ANGELS OF LEGO LUCAS I WILL DESTROY YOU.

I felt so content with this being a joke for so many years. Now that it's real, I'm speechless.

Hahah, I love how this'll negate the terrible extended universe bullshit that fans hold so dear.

I'm on board just for that.

Well holy shit.

This could be awesome if done right, and now that George Lucas would be seemingly less involved..

I wonder who is planned to direct?

Keep in mind she has also said Jurassic Park 4 and Indiana Jones 5 will happen, and those two seem to be stuck in development hell.
