So.. im a HUGE Star Wars fan, as I know most of you are too. We're also no doubt all aware of the mixed feelings in the Star Wars community surrounding the news that Disney is at the reins and we now have a definate 7th film in 2015 with more potential sequels every 2 years after that..
Personally as a Star Wars of going on 3 decades, I have mixed feelings... on the one hand im scared that the new hands at the reins will charge off into the sunset ripping the preciously constucted lore to shreds on the way... but on the other hand im thinking.. YES!!!! more visual Star Wars stories to watch and enjoy... To be honest its a 20-80% split.. the 80 being the excitment factor!
But anyway, back to my initial point of this thread.. With the inevitable hype for the new films, will there be a hike in the interest and draw to our beloved Star Wars The Old Republic MMO?
The films will no doubt draw in the next generation of StarWars fans to the cause, but will they also come our way as well...???
What are your thoughts?
I think there will be an explosion of new interest in Star Wars
for a new generation. Old timers will probably always have difficulty with new material, but kids will love them, which is the point. I think it will help here at The Old Republic.
I personally like the Old Republic
period more than the period set during the films. Its an exciting place, and it is only a matter of time before mainstreamers catch on to that fact.
I think we'll see with Star Wars
under Disney an adjustment similar to the Pirates of the Carribean
films between three and four. In Stranger Tides,
they went back to the the basics of being a pirate. I think the same kind of thing will happen in Episode 7
. I would bet that the story will feature Jaina Solo, which will become the Lara Croft of space. There is a lot of exciting potential there. I think we're all in for a lot of fun.
