How long before Leia joins the Disney Princess range?

Although Disney haven't done too badly with producing a Marvel film every year and them not sucking so maybe they can find a decent story in the Star Wars Universe.  God knows they could get someone able to write dialog better than Lucas.

I thought, "AT last! Star Wars without Lucas fucking everyone in the eye!" And then I saw he's still going to be involved/fuck it all up.

He was "involved" in the first three - its only on the prequels that he was surrounded by Yes Men.

But this opens up so many new exciting new IP possibilities:

Pixar could make a Monkey Island film!
Warren Spector could make a Star Wars game!
Avengers 2 could feature Indiana Jones!

You are relying on the fact he wouldn't abuse his Admin powers and edit your post.  You are mistaken.

Did you not louldy proclaim "Stop getting Star Wars wrong" and then tell them the whole plot from the Great Sith War to beyond Thrawn until you were dragged from the restaurant screaming about Han shooting first?

Is Thrawn going to be in the next 6 films as the uberbad? That would be sweet and vaguely fits with the time frame. I can't think of who they would cast as him though...

Most likely (and entertaining) would be if Disney decided to do a Star-Trek style reboot; not of the main trilogies but continuing on from the main films and just bulldozing the EU like so much matchsticks.

I imagine nobody has any bloody idea what it's going to be yet, but my guess is that they'll ignore the EU.

I think they're going to take inspiration from the stuff where it works, but given how much of it there and with 90% being gunk, it would be madness to try and actually keep it or even dare to try maintain consistency. You'd have to employ a team of people just to verify canon and have things tally up.

(I still think the best way to go is to just ignore 'canon' as a thing and go with the flow of whatever you're making now, consistency be damned.)

To be fair, Lucasarts have always been very good with maintaining the cannon and fiction of the EU as a consistent whole. I just don't think there's any point adapting it just because it's there. For most people the Extended Universe doesn't exist - and Lucas rightly ignored it when making Episodes 1 through 3 - so there's no reason to be beholden to it.

I am not sure that tooth-comb maintenance has done anyone favours though, and ultimately it puts people into creative holes as you have to try and reconcile things, rather than just write. I guess I just dislike anything that pays too much attention to canon over new good stories.

Frankly I think I care little anyway given I've dipped in only a little across the EU, new films are going to be interesting to consume whichever way they go.

GOOD NEWS! Apparently they've given script writer duties to the man behind Toy Story 3's script.
