Not too sure about this...it's like JJ Abrams thinks because he took on a (flawed in my opinion) vision of Roddenberry's Trek he can now take on Lucas' Wars empire...

Don't know if I'm feeling this; what are your thoughts?

I've liked a lot of his work, and will hope for the best. But it dose seem like a massive undertaking. After all I didn't dislike much about the newer trilogy outside Jar Jar.

What do you make of this upcoming trilogy, though, beginning with what is being called EPISODE VII?

Sorry premature send:). I can't really see how to work in the old characters in with so much time between trilogies. And I'm don't think you can really go the route of the new Star Trek. To me it just seems how can you make it make sense. It should be interesting how they bring back the "force" like rebuilding the Jedi possibly.

I'm optimistic about the project. No matter how good the film purists will complain about how it doesn't hold true to the original.

As long as the story is compelling, the acting is good, and there are no blatant plot holes I'll be happy.

My thoughts exactly. Nothing beats a good story line plot and good acting.

It's news to me, but I've never really been a SW fanboy. Maybe the special effects will be more realistic this time around (those phaser blasts need some help). It should also appeal more to the older audience, Disney is very good at this so I am looking forward to that aspect. I love sci-fi so it will be one to watch.

I, for one, am questioning the ultimate success of this with diehard fanboys if Abrams' "take" on Lucas' universe is anything like his vision for Trek...

Well, to be frank I was not impressed with the prequels, terrible acting (young and older annakins), corny lines, lousy plots. Whoever created Jar Jar Binks should be hung...

I think the sequels will be a lot better.

J.J. Abrams is a star wars fanboy so I'm hoping for the best. lets just hope they don't hire Damon Lindelof for the writer

Disney approached Abrams, due to his critical and commercial success resurecting the Star Trek franchise. As a life long Star Wars fan, what was he supposed to do, turn down the opportunity to work on a Star Wars film?

Personally my thoughts are Disney+JJ+Lucas = Entertainment.
I dont see how this will be a flop in any way as Lucas has already said that he will remain on as a consultant. I think that Disney/Pixar's animation specialties will make these next 3 movies eye candy at the very least :)

LOL...yeah, the Jar Jar element has been bashed since the prequels' inception...

I agree about the Annakin/Haydensen's characterizations and how ridiculous they were, especially when he got closer and closer to "becoming" Vader...this wasn't handled properly by Lucas at all, IMO...

Yeah, well, he was also a Trek fanboy and he screwed that up big time IMO, so I'm personally skeptical about this new trilogy attempt...
