Well, better choice than for the prequels anyway!
Disney's plans to dramatically expand the Star Wars franchise may concern stringent Jedi enthusiasts, but the fact that it has now signed up Lawrence Kasdan - co-writer of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, not to mention Raiders of the Lost Ark - to script one of its forthcoming films, will surely be music to fans …
"They ate stormtroopers."
And? I eat cows, chickens, pigs, etc. It ain't cannibalism if it ain't your own species.
As for one intelligent species eating another? Pesty troopers invaded the Ewoks world without so much as a by your leave, and set up shop.
Honestly I'm hoping that's just a "lost in translation" quote, with Disney aiming to release 2-3 films a year, as opposed to 2-3 star wars films per year.
Y'know maybe star wars, toy story 4, pocahontis 3. then the next year Rocky XXXXXIIVI wallie 2 and some marvel film. Then star wars again, etc etc.
"strong with the hair dye these ones are..."
There are many possibilities - Bakura, COJ (please not callista flockhart), Jorj Car'das back story, Galen Marek - not to mention the slightly deranged reason why the whole Han/Leia will they/wont they thing (with added bounty hunter goodness)
The biggest problem with all of them is if for example you dont do HttE you can't do spectre/vision (thrawn & pellaeon) since the result would make about as much sense as jarjar on amphetamines.
First one will be aces, next one average and the third one will be the whimsical adventures of a young jar-jar set to the music of tim rice n elton jhon.
Seriously though, as long as they stick to deathstars and space battles and away from tedious politics and coronation street style love stories they should be 1000 times better than the prequels.
Personally I'm hoping that they carry on with the narrative about trade disputes. Possibly something about marginal tax rates in non-core worlds and maybe a three hour EU style negotiation session. I think Lucas was onto a real winner with these themes and I hope the new writers don't abandon this vision.
