And on the other hand... PLEASE, no Thrawn trilogy. No Dark Empire. No Expanded Universe at all. Leave them where they belong... in the books and videogames. Give us something (relatively) fresh, like Knights of the Old Republic did on the XBox back in 2004. It felt like Star Wars (and I realize it had the whole Neverwinter Nights thing going on... I never played it, so it was fresh to me). There are new stories to tell in that universe, not just existing stories to be adapted.

Monkeyfoot, when Sam Raimi opens Episode VII with a musical number and has an emo Jacen Solo doing a Saturday Night Fever strut down a walkway on Coruscant, I'm going to remind you of what you've said here.

Get Nolan, Jackson, or del Toro to direct.

No CGI Yoda??? How the hell do u expect them to have a Puppet Yoda do the same kind of fight scenes?? haha. I agree with Hanso, puppet Yoda looks like, well... a PUPPET!

 Lucas has said that they will be something fans have never seen before in movies, TV or comics/books...I'm all for that.  It's not like they can't mention past events or refer to some of those stories.  But really, in lieu of the prequels, a lot of "canon" doesn't really make a whole lot of sense...the other villain in the Thrawn series was the clone of a dark jedi...I assume this came from the assumption that the Clone Wars referred to Jedis and Siths being cloned (there was even a fan theory that Kenobi himself was a clone with the designation OB-1), but it turned out the Clone Wars referred to the clone army of stormtroopers...kind of takes the sense out of the Thrawn series and Dark Empire, when you think about it.

I would prefer that the new movie centers on the new Jedi Order, fresh start with cameos from the original cast, get the guys from Clone Wars to get involved, they have great ideas and really love the characters and universe.

 @horcruxx

I said the exact same thing. Agree with you 100%.

Would be nice to bring back Hamill as Luke Skywalker and have him in charge of training the New Order of Jedi, but that's about it as far as linking to the original movies.
 

There's a whole galaxy of stories to be told.

 Monkey, he wipes them with his dollar bill as he laughs at me :)

 Actually, if they get Hamill back to play an older Luke, I can easily see him filing the same role as Obi-Wan in Ep. IV and Qui-Gon in Ep. I...

...meaning he'll probably bite it in the climactic lightsaber duel.

I agree with this list 100%!!!  For example, I think CG is a great tool but I don't think that it should be overused and Lucas is guilty of that!!  There's plenty of material that can be used from the SWU like the Boba Fett and the other bounty hunters, Jabba, the Han Solo Saga, Rise of the Rebellion etc.  So I hope that the focus of Disney isn't just with the Jedi aspect of the SWU because there's lots more to choose from.

I don't mind Lucas remaining as a creative consultant because he did create much of this, although I think both producer Gary Kurtz and the late director Irvin Kershner have done more than he's credited them for!  Just as long as he doesn't have the last word regarding creative decisions.  Whoever ends up in charge of any new movies and TV series, at the very least they should be willing to listen to other voices, something Lucas should've done more of instead of stubbornly listening to just his own ego!!  If he had done more of the former and less of the latter then perhaps we would've had some better ideas for ROTJ like; no Ewoks (or at least less of them), something other than a recycled Death Star idea, and a better ending, as well as  better Special Editions, and of course much better prequels.
