I am not the one showing any animosity with the uninformed and idiotic notion that Harrison Ford is only interested in Ep 7 because roles are hard to come by for him.

If you want to fabricate things to support whatever view you are holding, don't get bent if someone calls you out on it.
You can not see the difference in posting what Ford said vs saying Disney owes anything? Then you are hopeless and blind.

Disney owes nothing and your title of the thread is only saying you think they owe the fans an explanation. They do not owe the fans an explanation. But they already gave it by saying it will be original stories. So accept that. If you can't accept that then the butthurt must be strong with you. Accept it and sit back to watch the show or continue to be butthurt until 2015 and probably beyond. I got my popcorn ready. The internet will be hilarious with the tears.

And funny you took out the Indiana Jones part? Coincidence? LOL

I get it. You are trolling. You got me bud, I fell for it hook, line and sinker. Only a troll wields "butthurt" that often. Well done.

To anyone else listening, this thread has nothing to do with the direction of the movies. I probably should have clarified that to combat the desire of trolls. When I am saying that Disney owes the fans an explanation, I am talking about an overall explanation covering the dismantlement of LucasArts and the animation studio.

You should have put that in the OP. And btw, I said in my first post that Disney owes us nothing. And for that you delve into a posting history to pull out an unrelated topic for deflection. By going to something Harrison Ford said publicly? Don't get bent, man.

The gaming part of LA has been really dismembered for years. Disney just pulled the plug off the life support system. They have only been licensing out the Star Wars brand to other gaming devs like Bioware for one. The last time they did a game in-house has been many years. Disney owes nothing other than a "we're trimming the fat" on that one. And with just doing licensing deals, Disney already has people on the payroll doing that for them. Why pay 2 people to do 1 job?

As for the animation studio, I didn't know it was completely dismantled. I know CW is canned but the guy in charge said they were already starting another project which sort of hinted as more of a Episode 7 and beyond tie-in or many think sort of a way CW links Episode 2 to Episode 3 only this will link Episode 6 to Episode 7. Again, with that guy making it seem there is already another project in the works for that team and they didn't get fired, Disney doesn't owe an explanation as that is wait and see what we get next from the animation team. Plus going with another animation show by that same teams frees Disney to air it on DXD instead of Cartoon Network -- you know their competition.

Actually I hope they do a new series linking 6 to 7. While CW was good and I was late to that party but enjoying the reruns on a local station still in season 1, part of me does not feel any "urgency" watching it because many characters that are major in the show we know do not die. If they do one that does post-RotJ to lead up to 7, we can guess who lives or dies but we don't KNOW who lives or dies.

However, Disney does in fact, owe you something. Not if you're a fan, but if you're a... stockholder. Now's a fine time to purchase stock in Disney, gentlemen, before Ep. VII drives the price through the roof. Even the Prequel Trilogy, which was torn apart by critics and upset fans alike, still made a killing at the box office.

Plus, if you own stock in Disney, you are a shareholder in the company. Then when you write Bob Iger and say, "Save TCW! Don't make a Yoda film, it'll be super retarded!" You won't just be a crazy fan that they have to consider, "Is this guy a wild loner, or does he represent the average Star Wars fan?" you'll be a shareholder who can say, "As a stockholder, I am concerned for my stake in your company due to your recent treatment of certain parts of the Star Wars IP, namely the animation department of LucasFilm. Blah blah blah, I think you should continue production of the animation series that has received <critical acclaim X, critical acclaim Y, etc.> not only because of it's popularity among fans of the Star Wars series, but because of the valuable intellectual property it would continue to produce for Disney."

I can't disagree with stockholders but the thread was about owing the fans without saying if they hold stock.

The entire animation department was not dismantled, but it saw many layoffs and also saw the rest of The Clone Wars boiled down to 2 story arcs.

That medium did not really grow on me until season 1.5. It took off like a rocket in 2.0 and ever since I have wanted them to explore other eras in this animation style. I do hope that you are right about stories leading to Episode 7.

And I'm saying that if you're a really dedicated fan, buy stock. It'll give you more of a platform to speak from when you voice your opinions. If the same people who love Star Wars enough to make a financial commitment to the franchise are also calling for something (say, the continuation of TCW) then Disney will take note because those are the same people who are not just going to watch the movies once or twice, but will purchase the games, books, and other content that they produce.
