I have to disagree, but who would expect anything else? There's a huge difference between what JJA did with Star Trek and what he can do with the next SW film. For a start, the ST story was a set point. It was a reboot, since Enterprise has killed the TV series option, and people like the original characters. Naturally the original actors are old or dead, so no chance of using them, plus, the OS of ST was totally sixties. The effects, even the acting and morality was very dated. So, JJA was given a story and I think it's watchable and entertaining. Is it better than STII; TWOK? No, but that's as good as ST ever was.

With SW he is continuing a story, not rebooting it. There'll be no change in style, no back to the future, it'll be a continuation. It is, after all, episode 7 of 9, (7 of 9, mmmm) and while GL won't be in control, my guess is that he'll help shape the story and be eith consulting or executive producer. Unlike ST, SW still has a living creator, and inspite of the mistakes he's made, (lets face it, TPM is a dog of a film, with parts barely watchable, and AOTC and ROTS are both flawed) he still carries some weight.

Before literally throwing toys out of the pram, I'd wait and see. Plus, even if the worst happens and it is worse than TMP, (How?) that doesn't mean stopping liking SW. There are some folk who collect only OT stuff, hate the prequels and will have nothing to do with them. I'm sure, equally, there are folks who just collect prequel stuff, misguided as I may personally think that is. It is now thirty five years since ANH was released and they are still making stuff from it, why would they stop, so why should you?

Like I said, I'll wait and see, and if it is worse than TPM, then you can say I told you so.

Sorry if it's a bit of a rant, but I REALLY detest the current lazy fad in Hollyweird for stupidly and senselessly rebooting / remaking / resurrecting old past shows / movies (even board games like Battleship!), and then butchering them beyond any sensible recognition (in either story or style) into something very different and yet still re-using the original's name.
