I hope they all die in Ep 7.

Muenster, you are correct.  The various book series after Episode VI showed that while Vader and the Emporer were gone the Empire wasn't dead yet.  There were still dozens of Governors, Moffs, and Admirals looking to maintain power and/or take over as the new Emporer.  It would be several more years of fighting before the New Republic was officially established and years after that before it got any kind of stability.  As for Luke, Leia, and Han... if they're continuing their adventures then we'll probably be seeing a recast.  Mark, Carrie, and Harrison are getting way too old to be doing anything other than cameos.

Wyldstaar, two or three films per year.  I'd say that would be the plan, but the films won't necessarily be Star Wars connected.

@hanso - That is my hope as well. That way the new Jedi Order is left all on it's own running from who ever is the new Empire leader/Sith Lord.  Star Wars was always the best when the hero's were the under dogs fighting the monolithic machine of the Empire.

I agree axia.

The prequels failed (well, I didn't mind them but could have been better) because of George Lucas surrounded by Yes men starting from Rick "Smither" McAllum.

This is a whole new beast. Sure he's a creative consultant but he no longer has the final say. Plus the people working on these movies will probably be on average, mid 30s to mid 40s demographic that grew up with the originals and do their best to honor it.

I don't care the negative things people say about Disney. They have had a great track record of not only animated films but action adventure live action as well. John Carter was good but not well marketed. Buit look back at their four Pirate movies, Tron Legacy, Prince of Persia, Alice in Wonderland, Sorcerer's Apprentice. Oz the Great and Powerful. Maleficent and Lone Ranger will probably be surefire hits. All pretty decent flicks. Sure some of these were not box office hits but they weren't that bad. We all know Star Wars 7 will be a box office hit, no matter what. The question is, will it have the staying power of  a movie like Avengers?

My only worry is how this will affect Guardians of the Galaxy. I was under the assumption the Guardians movie would have been the new "Star Wars" for Disney but now that they have Star Wars....

 Luke should turn to the dark side so Mark Hamill could start talking in his Joker voice . Haha

YES. oh and the prequels did not fail. They made more money than they cost, thus they were a success. You might not have liked them but films are judged on cost/revenue breakdown. GL was a bust because it did NOT make it's money back. Get over it. They happened, they weren't as bad as anyone makes them out to be and the original THREE are back to smack down punk ass bitches.

@violator14 - I would be down with Jedi Master Luke becoming the new Sith Lord. The Emperor was old as hell but he was not to be fucked with at all. Sith Master (Insert New Sith name) Luke would be scary as hell. Lucas admitted that Luke is as Force powerful as Anakin before his turn into Vader.

I was hoping for some new faces in this new trilogy, so I'm a little disappointed the original trio is coming back.  I really don't see how Leia and Han can really contribute much this time around, considering their age and the fact that they got to be the heroes last time.  Assuming this new trilogy will take place 30 or so years after Return of the Jedi, the Solo twins should be at least in their late 20s, so they could be the focus this time.  I'm fine with Luke mentoring them as the new head of the Jedi Council, but I really wanted to see some fresh faces, in both heroes and villains.

@lazarus

What I meant of the prequels failing was not the money,  We all know they made profit as Lucas knows how to balance a budget, it was the fans/critics hating these movies that made them "failures"

I'm a diehard Star Wars fan so I still liked them but I only hear negative stuff from the casual fans or the ones that are stuck in 1977-1983. Face it. The only people who loved and supported the prequels were the diehard fans of the SW universe. Phantom Menace did a lot of coin because of the hype and return of SW but look at the box office totals drop for #2 and #3 (inflation chart says it all)  Look at the critical bashing the prequels got vs the originals. As much as Mark and Carrie were sub par actors in the originals, they pale in comparison to Jar Jar, Jake Lloyd and Hayden Christensen.

Ever since the announcement of these new movies I hear the same thing from different camps. My Star Wars fan friends are all excited and want more while the casual ones say "I hope they don't suck as much as the prequels"

Disney needs to bring the magic back to the franchise and not just be a mega box office hit with a D rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Jackwagon, I think it will be more as a transition.  Think of it as Luke being the Jedi Master, and Leia and Han being married with kids who are under Luke's tutilage to become Jedi.  A new order of Jedi with new rules to the order.  The original 3 will be more of transitionary characters I'm guessing.  They may be in all 3 movies, but more of background characters.  Who knows.  I think they'll bring in some new blood.  Perhaps with either Luke or Jaecen turning to the dark side.  Or maybe a different bad guy other then a Sith will be the new baddy.  We can't assume it's going to be the Sith.
