I wish they would just let CN air the rest but I have a feeling we won't get to see these

all the games Lucas arts and clone wars have been shut down by Disney I'm just not going to bother getting hyped up for anything star wars related anymore for all we know Disney will scrap the new trilogy after 7 to shift focus on something else

I just find it strange that Disney spends all that money to buy Star Wars and then shuts everything down. Clone Wars, SW video games and SW toys all basically stopped because Disney has no clue what it's doing (other than announcing Eps 7). They should have stayed the course: released the new Battlefront and 1313 games, let CN air the last season of CW, released Eps 2 and 3 in 3D (not to mention the OT, to lead up to Eps 7 and to push toy sales).

It's really the exact opposite. Disney clearly has it's OWN plan and is following through on it. It doesn't matter how big they are, they didn't spend 4 billion dollars on a property with knowing how they are going to proceed. I'm not saying it will definitely be GOOD and obviously current fans will miss out on some things that could have turned out great (like 1313), but they know exactly what they want to do with Star Wars.

The lack of toys is not because Disney said "NO MORE TOYS!". Hasbro owns the licencing rights to Star Wars brand toys (at least for the next few years) and they are in control of whether figures are made, not Disney (and not Lucasfilm before them). The current lack of product is because either Hasbro was already scaling back BEFORE the Disney acquisition or because they are waiting to see what new direction Disney is going to take the brand so they can start making toys to support it.

I understand shifting the focus to the upcoming sequels (although, I do wish TCW had been given more closure), but, the 3-D movies sure seemed like a good lead-in to me. Of course, I don't know how much it costs to convert/promote/release them (and they seemed to have done work as far along as the OT) vs the box-office take; while eps 2/3 might not have done incredibly well, what about the OT?

Now I'll agree that Disney didn't tell hasbro not to make toys, but it cut the legs out from underneath Hasbro. I would say that LucasFilm and Disney had been in talks for atleast a year before the announcement of the sale. The reason I say that it that Lucasfilm had too many things in the pipeline that were suddenly stopped once Disney took control. On the video game front you had two games in development, you had the Clone Wars TV show (which takes 12 to 18 months to produce before airing and they have a complete season done), work on all five remaining movies in 3D with plans for release (TPM was released in spring 2012 and the original plan was to release the following five films every spring for the next five years. Then that changed to AotC being moved from spring 2013 to fall 2013 and RotS following six weeks after release of AotC) which were completely scrapped once Disney took control. Add to the fact that Hasbro plans for the toys center around (and have for the last fifteen years)what LucasFilm is doing with SW (ie toys themed around whatever movie is being released or TV or video game release, ie last years packages were Phantom Menace themed and this year was suppossed to be AotC themed). But with no movie or TV show to tie into, what is Hasbro going to do.

I'm just wondering how these final episodes are getting to us. I hope it's not Disney XD (which it more than likely is) as I don't have it. There have been rumors of Itunes or Amazon Video, both of which I'm not keen on either.

From what I can tell, the episodes are apparently going to air on a German tv network (Supr RTL) in February. (RTL is 50% owned by Disney). The last rumor report has the eps airing on Disney XD/Disnel Channel sometime in the Spring, leading into TCW repeats in the Summer, and then, Rebels in the Fall.

Like the Dark Horse/Marvel Transition, any Star Wars shows will most likely air on one of their networks.
