just my 2 cents

To be honest I'm loat these new "Star Wars films" as non-canon. I'm sorry, but one cannot make such a ******** idea and disregard decades of amazing stories. I doubt I'll even watch any of these new poor excuses for movies.

Which is sad.

JJ ruined Star Trek's imagine and now Disney will ruin Star Wars itself and its imagine. *** am I supposed to like anymore? Everything I've loved being a fan of has been killed off one way or another in the past years.

they haven't even started it and you think its ruined?

What about the Prequels? Lucas made those with no regard to the established canon.

don't lie though as soon as the trailers for it come out you will be there opening night.

Disney is not a stupid company, so I kinda hope that if they are thinking on doing their original stories...pls do precuels (after RotS but before aNH) or spin-offs going on at the same time than the original trilogy.

If they are going to do after RotJ pls guys it's all already written in books, comics and games and all is accepted as canon by GL!!!!....the new jedi order, Mara, the Solo twins, the Emperor rez, the Yuuzhang Vong.....hell...it's all written up to Cade Skylwaker....why not just adapt what is already there and it's accepted by fans as canon?

Tim! Where are you?! There are a bunch of Chicken Littles here!

I don't know how we can even judge a story that hasn't even been written yet. Michael Arndt is just mulling over ideas at this point. We have everything from approaching David Prowse for repriseing Vader to completely demolishing the EU. Leleand Chee will have his say I'm sure. Even GL followed the EU unless it really conflicted with his "vision." These are just ideas that will be thrown around. There will be a million rewrites and on stage edits.

Just look at some of the classic lines in SW. Leia: I love you. Han: I know. <---- Ad libbed. Harrison Ford did that on his own. That was his own direction. Hell it made them rewrite the scene at the shield generator on Endor so Carrie could get him back over that comment. It's done all the time. Plus what ends up on the cutting room floor because it breaks up pacing or whatever. This can't be judged until we see it on the screen.

So let Arndt get to writting before we make any judgements. At least wait until a Director is chosen. Shesh!
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

Yoda-"An old friend has learned the path to immortality. One who has returned from the netherworld of the force, your old master."
Obi-Wan Kenobi-"Qui-gon?"
Yoda-"How to commune with him, I will teach you."

Acknowledging the existence netherworld of the force, opens the door to anything.

Anakin is a vergence of the force after all.

It's a gossip column. Take it with a tiny grain of salt.

Have you SEEN Mark Hammil this year? Holy Cow...bro is nearing his death bed! And Carrie Fischer, the real life Jabba the Hutt? Wow...

It doesn't matter how you factor in Vader into this episode, the fact remains that the Ep7 is going to be an old folks version of Star Wars, therefor it is going to suck. Please leave the Skywalker story alone, it's fine how it is. I want to see Revan and KOTOR events on the big screen and start a whole new sage from that. Ep 7...mark my words....it will ruin Star Wars.
