Every new generation will want to enjoy SW, i was born in 84 and fell in love with the OT which was before my time, and personally really enjoyed the PT ( im not one of those to cool for school haters). So i wouls assume it dying is not something that will ever happen.
Will it possibly not be quite as popular maybe, but i mean cmon think about it, SW is everywhere, goto disney you got a damn ride, watch tv there are cartoons, besides the movies there are over 100 novles and well over 100 games.

to say its going to die is just either wishful thinking on your part or just plain dumb, 100 years from now ppl will still watch SW, unless of course we blow ourselves to hell in back with the direction our planet is taking
To be fair, I don't even think a nuclear holocaust would destroy it. You know how some stuff, is kept in protective underground bunkers that could survive pretty much anything save for the literal destruction of the Earth? I'm thinking, along with some Star Trek stuff/Disney stuff/rare paintings/documents, Star Wars is in there.

i guess i just want someone to break free of Lucas' shadow and write something maybe artistic...if that makes any sense. ( i guess i wouldn't be making this thread if i didn't see how much potential starwars has after Playing Kotor 2 restored)
My suggestion take your jedi a different path. Create his/her own back story and story . Yea I know you need to follow the class story to level but who is to say you can't use that story and turn it around where it fits your jedi and makes him/her different.

I know that sounds like roleplaying and well considering I'm a roleplayer (lol) it may be. Just an idea for you to consider

1. Reclying the same ideas over and over again
2 characters never going beyond 2d (they feel stagnant and hardly noteworthy aside from what they look like, personality wise they never seem to grow and change in ways that feel realistic. ""I am aware this is a space fantasy but i don't think everything has to be cut and dry like it is now'''
3. The lack of outside the box thinking (this may sound similar to my first point but i honestly think that everyone in the EU is too afraid to tackle ideas and concepts that sort of twist the mythos of starwars a bit.

There was a time where i thought there was hope for something new. But i just don't know anymore.

So guys, do you think there is any hope for the future of starwars? or is it already too late?
I seriously doubt Star Wars will ever die. There are children being born and some of them are getting involved in the Star Wars saga and enjoying it even today.

People still read the books and watch the movies so no it's not declining.

You get what i mean?
you can choose to be an evil jedi or a good sith. its all in the way you go through your story line and if you even pay attention to it.

We need more character studies but make them about, you know CHARACTES! and not as filler to the next action scene. Another option is make it an adventure.

Also more rebellion era material! Most of the stuff out there happens during or before the clone wars, or after the formation of the new republic. Hoe about more stuff that takes place between the movies and the 3 years before the battle of yavin. The only things out there are the force unleashed and shadows of the empire (that comes to mind anyways). No more jedis, lets look at the universe!

It may be in decline. Then again, I went through the "dark times" of 1986-1991 (between the cancelation of the Marvel comic and the Zahn trilogy with Thrawn), so it all looks pretty good to me.
At least they haven't remade the original, with new actors....I'm looking at you Star Trek.

Star wars, star trek, Disney movies and Lord of the rings will always be part of our culture. They do go thru low periods as kids grow up and have kids of their own who watch/read these classics.

Example: My daughter as she grew up watched the prequels 1st with little knowledge OT. I as an old fan enjoyed watching her react to the big betrayal and then realizing who Darth Vadar really was. Hopefully Lucas doesn't really try and kill star wars since I look forward to a few more movies based in that universe
