But now? I'm kind of dreading the new movies. Not necessarily because Disney will be behind them - I'm sure some things will be better even, like the writing. I'm sure they can find a better script writer..."you torment my soul", anyone?
What I dread is the movies themselves. The plot. The characters. Because it'll be Episode 7. POST original trilogy. POST something that was perfect, ending just as it did.
Besides, there's already extensive storylines written out for the happens after, in the form of expanded universe (EU) books and comics. I'm worried they will dump the EU altogether, as it looks like it's headed that way. Will Jacen, Jaina, Anakin and Ben (Solo and Skywalker kids) still exist? What about Mara Jade! If she doesn't play a part in the story, I can't even imagine. Will they recast Han, Leia and Luke? And if they keep the EU, can they even do it justice? Is it better to leave the EU alone, left for joy of the nerdy folks and not the mainstream? Will Disney continue to make novels and comics? There's so many unknowns.

(Just please, please keep Leia out of the Disney princess line-up? That'd be weird.)
