Also, I'd love to have a family started pretty soon and the timing of this could be perfect for some cartoony, awful Star Wars sequels that kids would love.

I love the idea. Can't be worse than 1-3 and with a real director and script writer they could be fantastic.

seriously.  while they can make money putting out HRod and Corey Brown as two jedi warriors, it doesn't mean they are really going to put out another SW film. 

video games, cartoons, etc, most likely.

Not only did the news break today that the Walt Disney Company has acquired Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion, but the studio press release also announces that a Star Wars: Episode VII feature film is targeted for a 2015 release! Yes, 2015 will give us The Avengers 2, Justice League of America and now a new Star Wars movie!

Maybe not sure if serious because the OP says they are releasing a new movie and targeting 2015.

edit: BTW, I don't like a 3 year time frame. After the 1-3 Episodes disaster they need to rethink the franchise from the ground up and take their time.

targeting is the key word.  just b/c someone says target doesn't mean they are doing it.

also as you said that gives them two years til release date.  do they have a script, do they have a vision, etc.

hammonds you're trolling if you think they just bought the license for toys and cartoons.

The movie is coming. Rejoice.

Are they doing the Zahn series? I am not a Star Wars fanatic but the Zahn books were pretty good IIRC.

Also, how do they even do a sequel now? All the original actors are super old. It's going to be many years removed from the original series if they are looping in any of the original characters (which they will probably try to do in at least some capacity)

Patton Oswalt is one of the funniest stand-up comics in America and his rant on George Lucas is hilarious.

i'm not trolling.  i'm being honest. 

i'd go see a new SW movie no doubt, i just think there's also other things they can do with the SW franchise. 

just don't hold your breath.

I'm with Linty. CREAM, and Star Wars films make boat loads of money, especially bad Star Wars films.

The only way to lose is to not play.

If they suck ignore them,  star wars seems like the kind of franchise that can support a crap load of movies both with its main luke/anakian story line and the number of tangential stores you could come up with

Not quite the same. If all they did is distribute the film, they had no control over content. This isn't a knock on Disney but they really aren't similar situations.
