I don't understand why you guys are all so pessimistic about this all.

I'm listening to a radio interview and discussion with someone that's actually working in Lucasfilm and Star Wars (http://www.forcecast.net/listenlive.asp) and everyone is really positive about everything.

They're saying that Disney has a really good record with everyone in the world generally, and work well with marketing, broadcast all over everything, TV, radio, and have a world wide known and trusted name as an entertainment company. Lucasfilm is a good private corporation, and they're keeping the original workers in Lucasfilm, bringing in new good writers and directors, and this merge is just for the best since George Lucas wanted to retire and have the ownership transition in his lifetime. They're saying that the speculation should be positive.

You sound like you were paid to advertise the merger. Of course they're positive about it.. That doesn't mean we should be.

I think 3D happening is about as safe a bet that there is. It's Disney, come on.

You might feel a little differently after seeing the prequels..

Haha I knew someone would say that, I know how poorly they were received amongst fans. I generally am not as critical as most people really into movies, so I think I'll probably at least enjoy them.

They're enjoyable, they're just nowhere near as good.

Yeah, III was definitely the best of the prequels. I'm always torn between the worst though. On the one hand, Episode I has Jar Jar, but it also has Liam Neeson. Episode II has angsty Anikan but also has Christopher Lee. More often than not I go with I being the worst though. Jar Jar and worse dialog.

III > I > II

I think my rankings are based on the fact that I was young enough for Episode 1 when I first watched it that its terribleness just didn't stand out

If this is a CGI based Star Wars movie, then who gives a shit. Who says this is live action?
