Not sure how I feel about it either. Not very familiar with the films, but a new one every two to three years? On top of the ones that already exist?
I love the original trilogy. The prequel trilogy—aside from a few moments here or there and the last half of Episode III—did a lot to damage the reputation of the originals, and that’s not even including all the horrible things George Lucas himself has done to alter the originals over the years. What drives me nuts is that I’ve talked to quite a few people who have only seen the prequels (or judge the originals based off the prequels) and have never seen or have no plans to see the originals.
With Disney in control of the franchise now, who knows what will happen? We’ve seen what they do with a franchise like Pirates of the Caribbean (run it into the ground) and Star Wars is obviously much bigger. The plus is that Lucas would be relegated only as a creative consultant, allowing new blood to finally take over and potentially make something good happen. On the other hand, this just screams of being unnecessary. Like you said, a film every two-to-three years; really? Do we really need that, Disney? No. I could be wrong and they could be awesome, but that’s what they need to be. If they’re anything but awesome and justifiable, then they’re only going to further negativity towards the originals, which still deserve love; not buried underneath a legacy that has become nothing but a mess.
