So what does ToR community think of the news, Abrams was obviously good for Star Trek is he just as well suited for Star Wars or do you think one guy taking on two of most iconic space franchises in history is too much for one guy?

Also with the immanent marketing zerg in the wake of these new movies what will be the effect on ToR since this is the only MMO representation of the galaxy far far away?

Will EA/Bioware be able to capitalize "hopefully in a good way"?

Sounds promising.

I am looking forward to the next movie even more so now.

Finally some good news on the Star Wars front. Too bad they didn't get Damon Lindelof to write instead of Sunshine w/e.

I think Disney is definately aiming to collect on their 4 billion dollar investment and if their past aquisitions like Marvel and Pixar are any indicator they have a good track record.

..but I'm really curious how ToR will play into (if at all), this resurgent Star wars franchise

easiest way to capitalise would be to just add lens flare to everything in game right?

Haven't seen the new Star Trek as it doesn't have Picard and thus isn't proper Star Trek If Abrams did that movie well though, there's no reason to think he can't do Star Wars well also. I'm very happy to finally see a continunation of the series, wasn't expecting that till Lucas passed away, so yay for Disney. Since TOR is set in a completely different timeline, I can't imagine the new movies will have much effect on it.

great news in my opinion, the last Star Trek mevie felt already like a Star Wars movie. If he just could avoid doing any lens flares, then it will be perfect.

Yeah I realize that the timelines are melleniums apart, but I still think EABioWare has an opportunity to take advantage of the publicity the new movies will generate.
