I think I'm in the same camp with Jesse, I'm not really excited about all of this and right now I'm leaning towards not really liking it.
I agree that we'll probably get all three of the OT movies in 3D in 2014, it would be the perfect lead for a new film in 2015 just like the SE version in 1997 were for the 1999 release of TPM.
I think that when it comes to sequels, I'd like to see Hamill come back as Luke in the Obi-Wan role, mentor, wise sage that helps set things in motion. But I don't really need Fisher or Ford unless they wanted to skip far enough ahead that the films could be about the Solo kids and Ben...which I'd be more than happy to watch.
I think the EU, as we know it, is gone. I could see them keeping some of the characters but use them in new roles in the films. I think the 6 Saga Films and probably the Clone Wars will be kept as continuity, since George had his hands directly on them, but the books, comics, etc? Gone.
I know a lot of people are attached to the EU, but I don't necessarily have a problem with it being wiped out. In general, the audience for new movies will be far greater than the audience for all the EU stuff. Losing the Thrawn trilogy would kind of suck, and I enjoyed Legacy, but I stopped reading the novels a long time ago because I didn't care for a lot of it....except the Republic Commando series, and that's already been wiped out.
Haven't been around the net much since the announcement, just looked up the factual press release stuff, but my Twitter account blew up like it never has before and I can just imagine what's going down on some of the otheR Sites right now...plus all the non-collecting fan blogs. I'm sure it's an equal mix of hope and "that mouse's dick is small but my ass still hurts."
I mentioned this over on the PSWCS list, but some of my concern is more selfish; I'm wondering if this new ownership will have any impact on fansites, fan clubs and groups like the 501st? I'm wondering if we'll be able to continue our medallions for charity or if I can do another giveaway at the next Celebration without being arrested. Should I expect a C&D? I don't know.
