Following the release of Episode 7 in 2015, "our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years," Iger said in the statement.

Good. It means he can keep his universe in one piece without having any direct involvement in the story.

It is Anakin Skywalker's rise, fall and redemption story. 7-9 don't need to feature those characters. The universe is a big place. I'm glad that while Lucas is no longer in control, he will continue to have input. It will keep it Star Wars. You have to look at other companies that Disney own that are doing amazingly well. ESPN, ABC and Marvel and doing wonders. Just look what Disney and Marvel did with the Avengers. Where is the worry that I have been seeing on Facebook and Star Wars sites. I hope they don't over saturate the franchise though. Lucas' plan for 12 movies sounds more than enough. This isn't James Bond here.

Except the EU has been doing that for a while now. Like, since the Yuuzhan Vong, at least.
I'm going to go ahead and ignore you now. Having read your previous posts, I probably should have done that sooner. Come back when you can make a post that isn't vitriolic drivel.

Yeah, I looked it up after posting. Jacen and Jaina have been in the EU since before they were born, and were actually born during the Thrawn Trilogy, and Anakin Solo appeared way back in Dark Empire.Burn wrote:And we both know you're not going to ignore him.
Eh. I have no need to argue with someone who adamantly declares he knows the plot details of a movie he's never seen. Might as well go argue with a cat, at least the cat can bring up a valid point.

I rest my case while the e-doodoo flies.
