Well the good thing is, Disney produced movies don't heavily rely on blue screen and CG as much as George. Look at the Pirates of the Carribean sets and location shooting. John Carter, Prince of Persia, etc...

The less CG, the better. A lot of good actors were wooden acting for George and I'm sure a lot of that is attributed to just being on a soundstage next to a blue screen talking to no one. Even Liam Neeson bitched about it years ago. Being on location, in costume and interacting with real actors probably brings out more in an actor.

Oh yeah, a Michael Bay Star Wars would be...well there aren't enough letters in the word 'terrible' to adequately describe how terrible it would be. Although I would still go see it in the theatre, I would just be crying the whole time.

Though it could be worse, they could get M. Night Shyamalan or Uwe Boll to direct.

Are you freeken' kidding me! This list has some of the most nitpikiest things ever. So what the prequels had a lot cgi, The Clone Wars cartoon is all cgi and it's probably the best cartoon on cable. I was expecting some real insight. But cgi yodas and man made sets. So what. I do agree with the need for a good director and correct casting but that's with any movie. As long as the story is compelling those other things are minor. In fact. I just watch Star Wars and Empire last week, and I would say there are some questionable effects in those and those movies are good. (Well, actually I think A New Hope is crappy and boring-with luke acting a lot like Anikan).

I'm sure that a lot of people who will be calling the shots on the future SW franchise are well aware of the complaints and problems with the prequels and I have faith that a lot of good ideas will be put forward that won't be considered by Lucas himself, there won't be such a personal tie now to one man with the power to make or break a film.  These will be the SW films we've been waiting 30 years for!!

 The only  bad thing is I wont know who to blame if the movies suck.  Oh who am I kidding, im blaming Lucas if he is consulting :)

Sam Raimi has the perfect style for an action packed SW film with appropriate humor and pathos and good characters. Hopefully if his Oz movie for Disney does well he will be put on the short list.

But more than likely it will be one of the successful Pixar directors who will get the directing gig.

LOL, Hanso! George cries buckets of tears at your every insult, you cruel, cruel man! :-)

I will say it again and again.  Thrawn Trilogy NOW.  It is accepted canon and they are great stories.  Screw what ever Lucas thought up.  He can't be trusted.  The Thrawn trilogy is simply bad ass.  They they can move onto the Yuuzhan Vong series. Move onto the new Jedi and Sith from the Solo family. It is all set up, all they have to do is write the scripts.

Thrawn trilogy would be great but  25 years ago.

They would have to recast Luke, Han, Leia, etc...

Any thoughts for Han? Hugh Jackman?
