welllllll, its not like Fisher is doing much of anything at the moment, and IIRC she *was* @ NYCC this year; didnt she used to shun those? guess times have changed.........or, perhaps her therapist recommended doing it to keep her from going back in the bottle.


/shrug

also, lets be clear: Dizney doesnt market to kids. they market to the The Family Unit. its easy to put something up on a tv-screen and some dopey kids wants it.......but when U can make a pitch to the Adult who actually controls the finances in household, ya dont just have 1 customer, but their spouse and/or the children too.

MUCH bigger payday coming in then.

Why? To sell tickets to a handful of nerds who have already promised 10% of their income to the franchise til they die anyway????

Stop it.

Just stop it.

Cameos? Maybe.....

Star Wars sequels STARRING Fisher, Hamill and Ford???????

This is pretty much where I'm at with this, in-between the pants-shitting terror and unbridaled joy. Lucas was barely an influence anymore, and the idea of a Star Wars run by a machine where efficiency is key and everything is fast-tracked both scares and excites me.

I'm just hoping for loose adaptations of some of the better EU material.

Fox Retain Rights To All Existing Star Wars Films
Quote:
The new Disney deal with Lucasfilm doesn’t include the distribution rights to the pre-existing Star Wars films, all of which will remain with Fox. I assume that includes the Star Wars Holiday Special. In fact, Lucas’ deal with Fox doesn’t look to change in any way, so don’t go getting your hopes up for pristine Blu-ray editions of the original trilogy in their original versions – it’s really not likely to happen at all. The Lucas-Fox pact will have Han shooting second at least until… well, at least until somebody other than George Lucas is making the big decisions. Not to get morbid, but I remember what it took for Stanley Kubrick‘s Clockwork Orange to get “unbanned” in the UK, and that was Kubrick passing away.

Distribution rights to the upcoming films will sit entirely with Disney. This means that any future complete edition boxset will require some kind of deal making by both studios, though that “full set” concept seems to have lost a lot of currency tonight with the promise of new Star Wars every couple-few years for generations to come.

Wow, I don't know how I feel about this. It's about as shocking as when Disney brought Marvel. I'll wait and see how this goes before I judge it but I'm hoping for the best.

This is sounding less and less promising. So we're still stuck with Lucas being a roadblock to the original theatrical editions, and the next three films will be based on Lucas' story treatments, with a faithful Lucas lieutenant at the reins of Lucasfilm, and with George looking over her shoulder and adding his "creative consultant" input the whole way. So any promise of positive change due to this development is SEVERELY muted, IMHO.

This is great news for the most devoted Star Wars fans, but it will probably be yet another reason for the "Han Shot First" crowd to whine like Fizzgig.

She looks pretty good for 56. I mean, that's a grandmother age.

Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars will be reformed into the First Galactic Entertainment Empire! For safe, and secure, media entertainment



I was pretty freaked out when I first found out but now I'm hyped for 2015, Disney has generally left Marvel alone and has brought in talent to make incredible movies, everyone thought they'd screw things up and it's been business as usual, with the pleasant addition of The Avengers and sequels galore to follow. I think this could go down very well if it's done right.

Ironcially I think the problem here is Lucas, he could've gotten a bit more from Disney for LucasArts and I worry how much control over the new trilogy he's arranged to retain. As Doc said, Disney is in this to make money and if they can do that by making it family friendly, they'll probably try it

I think Plastroncafe and Andrea are the only ones seeing the bigger picture here, and that is the rat has another company under its belt, infact more than one including the Sound and Graphic ILM teams, that's massive, that means Disney will be pretty much be helping everyone make movies.

How long before the big one, where Disney buys Time Warner? I mean they might as well just own everything right? I don't know why but for some reason I wouldn't be surprised to see Disney buy Nintendo in the future(yeah I'm not convinced that company has good direction for the future), mostly for Mario but all the rest too, whatever the case, I don't think Lucasfilm will be Disney's last shocking purchase.

New Star Wars movies can go either way, will have to wait and see on that.

Same HEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE!!!!!!!!!! Crap, just squirted!
2015 looking good then, Avengers 2, JLA, Star Wars 7, and I have a very strong feeling about daredevil reboot. Please let there be a daredevil reboot. If the punisher gets 3 films and rumours of a reboot in 2014, please let there be daredevil 2!

I hope the clone wars is gone soon, it's so corny. Don't like it at all. Fine, there were a few good episodes (the lair of grevious was brilliant) but apart from a few good episodes, it was crap. I just bloack it from my mind and pretend it's not part of the star wars universe just like I do with SJA in the dr who universe. As for a live action TV show, I am up for that. I think it'll work well. A space opera would be cool! With shows like Smallville and Arrow, Diseny should join that market with star wars.

LMBO. Nice.

I'd be on board with a DD reboot or sequel too. I know the '03 film didn't hit a grand slam at the box office, but I thought it did well enough for a 2nd try.
