It's good to see you guys aren't freaking out like people elsewhere in the internet.

I'm kinda looking forward to see Star Wars handled by people other than George Lucas.

Also, Disney is going to get the special effects resources Lucas built up.  We may see more of it in use through Disney's various studios.  Let's just hope they don't go overboard like with the Star Wars prequels.

There's no reason to freak out. Disney is very good about not stuffing undue things in their franchises; you don't see Donald Duck creeping into Wolverine comics, and you won't see Darth Mickey in the new Star Wars.

Even more than that, Disney, through a variety of subsidiaries, owns a *ton* of separate studios that make a wide variety of moves, including horrible slasher films. With so many resources available to them, and fairly competent managerial staff, they could do a lot of good to the franchise.

Especially if they keep George 'Jar Jar Binks Was A Good Idea' Lucas out of it.

HOLY CRAP THE SCREENWRITER OF TOY STORY 3 IS WRITING THE NEW STAR WARS SCRIPT!

(Okay... gotta stay cool. Stick with cautious optimism.)

Obviously, Episode VII is going to be like this.

Cautiously optimistic.

It's key to this situation.

Who else thinks Walt Disney's frozen digitized brain would be a good Eclipse Phase character?

With Disney having acquired the Star Wars franchise, a TV series based on the Star Wars underworld is becoming a bit more likely. It would likely be a darker take on the Star Wars universe, like the article says, a possible "Deadwood in space".

Honestly it reminds me a bit of Dan's Star Wars ORE game, excluding crazed former moisture farmers.  ;)

Zach Snyder will be directing a Star Wars non-trilogy movie, loosely based around Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai.

7 Samurai? Its not that I don't like it or The Magnificent Seven, but its not my idea of a Star Wars film. 

What are the bandits going to be Sith?

This was confirmed as fake, unfortunately.

Now I've heard rumors about JJ Abrams but with his track record I'm sure I will see a Star Wars that mirrors the old Star Trek. Since he turned Star Trek into Star Trek Wars.
