The possibilities are endless! Princess Leia at Disneyland? Boba Fett vs Deadpool? More Wookiee jedi? Its all possible now that Disney has the reigns! And every single one of you will go see more Star Wars movies regardless of their quality. Because its new Star Wars in theaters again, and everyone deserves that experience. You have to admit that the Prequel Trilogy generally improved in quality as they came out, and since there is no way Jar Jar would appear in the Sequel Trilogy they can only improve from there.

Seriously people, I can't see them making THAT many big changes (except of the NJO stuff of course).
How do you figure that any of the NJO canon is out the window? At this point everything stands as is. Nothing has changed. Lucas Film will retain most of the control of the IP. Disney is just the parent company. Until we know exactly what the next story is about we should assume nothing. None of the canon is "out the window" at this point, including all of the NJO.

Marvel did Star wars comics in the past, don't mind if they would do them again. Actually I don't care much who does the comics, as long as they are good.

With that said , Marvel is fully owned by Disney as well ..............does this mean Darkhorse will eventually fade away and rights be given to inside Disney (Marvel) ..........?

Knowing how the Mouse works and how diligently we preach the gospel of "Synergy" as part of internal DIS onboarding (@ WDW there is literally a giant "SYNERGY" sign with samples of product synergies inside some of the training rooms) I'd put money on the rights reverting to Marvel.

The only thing I can think of that would keep them from reverting to Marvel is if Disney bought Darkhorse. You heard it here first.

And remember, Quantity never means Quality OP.

Ep VI is called a CONCLUSION for a reason...Star Wars should have remained in Tv shows, comics, books, and video games..where it is very strong in the market still...well or was after Disney makes all of that pointless and all we have left are Star Wars phone apps...

That better not be true. I'm still waiting for Battlefront 3.

Sorry to break it to you but Battlefront 3 was 100% given up on a couple years ago; Pandemic being dropped was the last nail for it.

We might have 1313 still if Disney allows it to happen.

That sucks. I seriously hope 1313 comes out and is good. TFU series was okay, but I'm hoping 1313 can revive Star Wars gaming. If 1313 is successful, maybe Disney will reconsider their approach to Star Wars gaming. I hope so.
