That's the whole thing about this Disney deal. We've heard plans. We've heard rumors. We've heard opinions on these plans and rumors. What we have not see from Disney is a FINAL PRODUCT. We don't know what they got. It's all still in the works. It might be good.


nah. pretty sure the Inquisitor tells us all we need to know about the future of SW...


It doesn't. And that just goes back to what I said. Disney gave us a small bit of info on some element of what they plan to do, then people will extrapolate whatever they want from that (be it positive or negative). We still don't have a finished work to judge. We don't know.

Also, remember, George Lucas didn't sell Star Wars to Michael Bay (there'd be real trouble then), it's Disney. By and large, they put out good product. Am I excited when I hear about Boba Fett solo films? No, because personally, I think he's way overrated. But there's no one Lucas could have sold this property to who's vision of what thing should be like will fit perfectly with mine or yours. It will be different, but that don't mean it will suck.


"At least it's not George or Michael Bay"...tired of hearing this kind of talk. We're all aware at how low the bar is set from the last go round that anything, no matter how mediocre, will shine. Dont let them off that easy, fans deserve better. Set it higher. Personally, I think we deserve better than JJ Abrams. Sorry, you said "overrated" and he immediately jumped in line. He's part of the low-bar...they dont have to aim that high: remove risk for maximum profit. On whole of all big budget films released nowadays, there are two kinds of releases: sucks and mediocre. Mediocre is has become the new "great." At best, these movies will be "great."

Tell you what...as soon as we gather that no more than 4 people at one time are in possession of a lightsaber/mastering the force,(I'd prefer 2 at a time, but will allow one trainee per side) I'll take it all back...I'll bite...I'll want to see the new movies. I'm betting they can't(won't) do it. If they do, I'll owe you a Coke, Joe...one of the good ones...with the real cane sugar...:)

I think it really depends on which Disney we get. Sure they can be carefull and resectful of a property (Pixar, Marvel) when they want too. But remember this is the same company that during the 90's and into the first part of the last decade, milked everything they did. So far Disney has been pretty careful about what it's doing with SW, but I think that because a lot of what they have to deal with was already in place (like books, comics and toys deals). But many of those deals will be or have expired. I think that they see SW as a cash cow and will milk it for what they can, but do realize that they have to be careful. Just look at what they have done so far: Cancelled several video games, decided to move comic publishing to Marvel in 2015 (which make a bit of sense because Disney owns Marvel), rumors have been floating around that as soon as the book publishing deal is done with Del Rey that Disney will move that to Hyperion (which like Marvel, Disney owns). The Hasbro deal is in place until 2020 and Disney doesn't own it's own Toy company, so I'm sure that safe. They cancelled The Clone Wars and are making a new show for their own network (again, something that almost makes sense. I mean the show for their own network, not cancelling TCW). They set a date for a first movie andhave said we will get "stand alone" character movies. I'm sure we'll get a TV show on ABC sooner or later.

People say that all the time and I just don't get it. With everything else Disney has acquired there has been a good solid reason. I just don't think that there is one for them going after Hasbro. Sure they would get some brands that would make them money, but they would also get a lot of brands that they don;t want (but then again Disney has bought companies and done nothing with them before). Not to mention that Disney has a long standing relationship with Mattel, so why not buy Mattel? Numbers reveal that boy toys are on a downward spiral, but girl toys revenue keeps going up. Makes a lot more sense to buy up the company that owns Barbie, Monster High and Hot Wheels than to buy the comapnay that owns G.I.Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony.

I looove the vehicles. I hope they do some "black-esque" realistic figures for Rebels. I love McQuarrie's art. Just dont care for the animated figs. I love the vehicles though.

So does that mean R2 and C3PO are showing up in Rebels? If so it's only a matter of time before Han or Lando show up. I know Vader will eventually. I can't see the Empire letting a group of "Rebels" doing stuff and the Inquisitor not capturing them so many times before they send in Vader to "clean up" that mess.
