So no kidding Ep 7 was tailored to older teens, that's the demographic that is ripe for something like Ep7.

I swear, the people who gripe about this are some of the dumbest individuals I've ever seen, that and the most entitled.
So, you basically re-enforce my point then abuse me about it? Interesting debating technique. Is there anything else you would like to furiously agree with me about before signing off with a casual insult?

My lament was we older star wars fans who grew up with it (I saw A New Hope when i was 10 yo) wouldn't mind some adult star wars. A legends Star Wars movie with a M+ rating would be brilliant.
RIP APAC players, RIP West Coast Players, RIP anyone not living on the East Coast

Star Wars is anything from dying, but to each's own.

Star Wars is dying?

By Dec. 26th Rogue One had already earned $520,000,000. The Force Awakens was the third highest grossing film of all time and was Disney's highest grossing film ever.

Some death. The franchise is a cash cow.

You not liking recent installments does not mean "the series is dying." The series will die when people stop buying movie tickets for it. No Star Wars film to date however has been a box office flop.

Annoying is an understatement. No one will be happy with some wired looking kid trying to act like Han solo did, or better yet How Harrison Ford brought him to life. No one can duplicate that. Remember Young Indie? I thought the guy that was playing young Indiana Joans was all wrong, as far as i was concerned, he looked nothing like Mr. Ford's younger years. (Remember what Ford looked like in George Lucas's Classic film " AMERICAN GRAFFITI " which was what 2 to 3 years earlier than Star Wars?) AND this film about young Han will blow Jawa Chunks too. Only way to do it is Young Han would have to be a CGI the whole movie of younger baby face H. Ford.

Truthfully i really do not care what Han did b4 he met up with the Scooby Doo Wars Gang, Fett too, for that matter. I mean you gonna go and make films of all the main characters, before, and middle, and after the Main films portrayal of them, so too fill in the gap of their lives to us, the viewers. Its silly and it will spoil the essence of these iconic characters.

Disney just stick to the new episodes 8 & 9 and for get the young Han & Fett films or any others like them. JMO....

hahaha, while I guess it is an understatement. The old republic offers a degree of originality that disney is having a hard time looking past because all they see is money symbols and what ever else that makes them lack balls for originality.

I read in a recent article that they are in talks for a tv series, but want too, for whatever reason, do it after episode 9. I dont know what that means given that disney has all the resources and capability to do much more at the same time. I guess its the safer choice, but given there lack of income lately due to espn(I think that was it), I think it would be logical to take some risk and do other things.

If it will bring in money, they will do it... Sort of like the Field of Dreams "If you build it, they will come" idea...

Disney is at least finally thinking out of the proverbial box for a change. All Lucas did is wait until the cashflow slowed down and then re-re-re-release the same film with what he called "improved" CGI...

And I still hold true to the old "even bad Star Wars is better than no Star Wars" idea anyway...

Well, to be fair, George Lucas him self was thinking of a Live action TV series as well back in the second half of the first decade of this new century, actually it got push back a couple of times and than by the time he thought he would begin the writing of the pilot, he was approached by Disney in like 2012 or 2013 give or take a year or so. He didnt take the first deal they offered to buy the Star Wars franchise, but we know he did take their last offer, or his last offer, how ever you want to look at it.

I was excited to think about a live action star wars series on tv every week. So when it got push back and then it didnt happen, i was so disappointed. So i still love that idea of a live tv series, i just hate it may come after Episode 9. Damn it.....

Oh well, i just have to stay alive long enough to see it. lol

Take Care & Be well....
