Having seen a recent photo of CF, I hope they don't try to fit her into the bikini...

Reminds me of what recently happened with Dallas. I was always a Dallas fan, and seeing JR on screen, evil as ever, was worth all the other nonsense. The problem was, all the younger actors were hired for their looks, (not complaining where the female leads are concerned, not at all) rather than acting ability. This meant that they were totally one dimensional, and you didn't care if they stayed or went, (apart of course from the aforementioned ladies). But seeing Larry Hagman now, like a dinosaur fighting extinction, was also a bit sad. I'm just hoping that I don't feel the same about the famous trio in any new SW film.

I disagree. I like SW, have been a fan since I saw it on holiday in 1977. I played with the toys when I was younger and have collected various items ever since. There are certain SW characters, even films, I'm not that keen on, so I avoid them. I've never seen any of the Ewok films, vaguely recall the Droids cartoon series, can't stand Jar Jar Binks and am not at all keen on Phantom Menace.

In the same way, I like Star Trek, but didn't like Enterprise. Doesn't stop me from enjoying other parts of the franchise. The problem everyone has is comfort. We are all comfortable with GL, but lets face it, episodes 1-3 didn't set the world alight. There were very good parts, but they were deeply flawed. Even ROTJ has it's flaws. The last great SW film was released thirty two years ago, but we're all still followers.

Disney is an unknown, but they did not pay £2.5 billion to sink the ship. They aren't that stupid or they wouldn't be able to buy a SW figure, let alone the company. I'm in the wait and see category, which I'd say is good advice in anything. Will they release related films, probably. Will some be worse than others, yes. But could some be excellent, again, yes. Look at the Avengers, often cited. Iron Man is brilliant, the Hulk movies, well, not so much. AA, which I saw for the first time tonight, is superb.

But, even if Disney do make five duff films and that's it, what will I still enjoy about SW? Exactly what I enjoy today, and if they are still making stuff about those films after all this time, I can't see companies stopping. After all, what would anyone here collect if not SW?

has five Flash video clips with George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy's discussion about the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney and the "Star Wars" franchise. Being on a dial-up connection, I don't know what's in the videos, so there may not be anything new.
