I won't lie, all the fears I had about Disney buying Marvel came to nothing. But this hits closer to heart, especially if this so called new "Episode 7" rewrites all the history after Endor established by Games and Books. Also, there's serious risk Disney might change LucasArts so far tolerant policy to noncommerical fan projects like this one. Thoughts?
Personally I was fine without any more, I just hope they do their own thing with these in some new place on the timeline like with KOTOR.
Yeah. I was hoping for some faithful animated/CGI trilogy of Thrawn, a bit like Batman: Under the Red Hood for example, or maybe looking something like this. I think a live action movie would likely try and change too much.
A serious live action TV show would be great, and if they don't rewrite the entire post Endor timeline with Episode 7 and do this, I might support this deal after all.
That's the problem Gtut, we already know how Luke restablishes the Jedi order and how the New Republic comes about. But of they're going to make movies out of it, they're certainly going to change things and screw up the timeline. The books that explain it are canon, but they're not a third trilogy (heck, it's a lot more than 3 books to show that).
