    Nothing is official. The 2 most presumed things are The Clone Wars cartoon goes to the DISNEY channel, and Dark Horse's license for the comics will be yanked and given to Marvel(pretty much crippling Dark Horse...but get used to it, cause a lot of ancillary companies are gonna get ****ed in the ass by Disney corporate/legal). Maybe Marvel will just co-opt Dark Horse in an effort to not seem so mercenary. That's about the most solid info coming out so far, other than the news about the writer being picked.

    You don't get it man.... the opposite of love isn't hate it's indifference.

    George Lucas, the prequels and all the annoying adult Star Wars fans in the world haven't made me HATE Star Wars... they've made me completely indifferent to Star Wars.

    There's no amount of terrible out there in the world that would undo my indifference. If they make something good then I'll watch and enjoy... but I'll never CARE about Star Wars the way I did when I was a kid.

    No...I get that Doc. But no matter how jaded you may be...you always remember your first love. And yeah. Two things forced me into adulthood...the dissolution of KISS and the loss of the makeup, the realization that Gene and Paul were TWATS, etc...and Star Wars sucking the great cosmic egg. It's a defense mechanism to not care to the point you have perfected...me, I am eternally Charlie Brown to the football holding Lucy...forever trying to reclaim my lost childhood by praying that my heroes do me right. And no matter how much I die a little inside with every disappointment...I am not ready to give up. I envy and pity you at the same time sir.

    Hah. Don't worry....... my relationship with the Kings is still perfectly childish.

    Well that damn Clone Wars cartoon has already run rough shot all over EU cannon which in turn cheapens the whole property for those that bother with EU. Not smart, but Lucas and his cronies haven't ever been accused of being passionate about the integrity of any SW property. I don't imagine the Disney execs will want to handcuff themselves to anything that the majority have people have no clue about. The shame in all of it is that quite a few (certainly not all) of the EU stories are just fantastic.

    Funny thing is...there was a comedy being developed by the Robot Chicken guys a while back that, about 4 months ago, disappeared off the radar. So I have to suppose that this deal was being worked for a while. I wonder what the fate of that show ultimately will be. I only care because I LOVE the RC guys.

    I feel similarly. I'm not necessarily indifferent to Star Wars, but a further diminishing of the brand won't really bother me and I will continue to obsess over the original trilogy regardless of what comes next.

    Much like my feelings for Robocop will never be diminished by the horrible sequels or hopefully cool reboot. I will always love Robocop no matter what.
