The article mentioned what Disney did with Marvel, so based on that, I approve.
These are my thoughts. Lucas had such a great idea and story, but him making it into film, especially the prequel, sucked. He was more hands off with the Empire Strikes Back, which is why I think that one was the best. His dialougue is just pooh.
From my understanding just from past interviews, he always pictured a 9 episode adventure. These new ones I think will take place after the Return of the Jedi. I remember back in college reading an interview where he had a vision that there was still war in the galaxy and different governers (ie. guys like Tarkin) were still fighting the Republic for galatic supremecy.
Like someone else said, this may suck, but my bet is that with Disney now running this, and the way Iron Man and the Avengers have turned out, this could be a great things.
