EW reports that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy wants to put out "two or three" Star Wars movies every year. Remember that wait that felt like forever between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi"? Now it'd just be like "oh in a few months we get a new one."

 Are you a big enough "Star Wars" fan that you'd catch 2-3 new installments every year? Well yeah -- I guess if you're a fan, you probably would.

"Start anew, stick to the story and don’t care about the merchandising."

By Steven Smith

They tell me to have faith. And by “they” I mean “them” and I by “them” I mean the same folks who promised me the prequels would be awesome.  You know these folks – delusional, hopeful, steeped in the Lucas lore yet probably didn’t read "Han Solo and the Lost Legacy".  The same people who didn’t blink at the idea of midichlorians and justified Jar Jar Binks screw up in the Senate as reason for his existence.  These people are wrong and will be again.  Or will they?

You know, after all the coverage about this Disney/Lucasfilm/Episode VII thing, I just couldn't put my finger on what was missing...something to make it all seem finally REAL!  And now I have found it --

Yes, those wags at NMA have done it again, encapsulating the essence of a breaking news story via odd 3-D modelling.

Here are some highlights: Read More...

Look, I feel this is inevitable...with Disney/Star Wars dominating the current newscycle like a giant rampaging Wampa, the heat is on Warner Bros. to counter with some kick-ass "Justice League" movie news or something of that magnitude. "Star Wars Episode VII" is going head-to-head with the "JL" film, fer heaven's sake! So is "Avengers," but that's Marvel/Disney...which brings on even MORE pressure for that jaw-dropping, pants-wetting news. (Read more about the "Justice League" movie at MTV Splashpage)

Then again, it may not be about "Justice League" at all. Maybe the WB will acquire their own cool multi-billion dollar franchise and tell the world about it. Here's my completely baseless guesses, once again donning my Sally Speculator cap of pure guessery: Read More...

With the explosive news concerning yesterday's Disney/Lucasfilm deal PLUS the announcement of "Star Wars Episode VII," the amount of related content coming through the interwebs might be enough to make even a seasoned Geek overwhelmed. Helpfully, we've aggregated some of the most interesting, informative, inspirational, and on occasion downright infuriating stories:

HOW NERD-WORTHY MIGHT THIS NEWS BE?

MTV Movies Blog places the Disney/Star Wars news in context of other Great Moments in Geek History -- as they put it, how the event registers on the "Nerd Richter Scale." Will it register higher or lower than Peter Jackson directing "The Hobbit"? Find out at the link! Read More...

The big question right now is what kind of shape Star Wars: Episode VII will take and more importantly, what part(s) of the canon will it draw from. There's a vast constellation of expanded universe fiction across novels, games, and comics to pull from in the events post Jedi.

How will Luke, Leia, and Han figure into this new universe? Will we see characters like Grand Admiral Thrawn or Mara Jade make appearances? And what about Han and Leia's kids? Here's how the universe looks after Jedi and some of our best guesses about what kinds of stories might be ripe to explore in Episode VII.

This video features Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger and George Lucas, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lucasfilm, talk about the merger and what we can expect.

You know, after watching the documentary "The People Vs. George Lucas" recently, I sort of despaired about ever seeing a new "Star Wars" film again. So this news, so late on a Tuesday (for a East Coaster still in a daze from Hurricane Sandy)...well, it just about sent my jaw dropping to the floor. A NEW STAR WARS MOVIE, people! (read more deets at MTV Movies) What returning characters might we see? Who's going to star in it? And what's going to happen when it goes toe-to-toe with "Avengers 2" plus maybe "Justice League" at the box office?!

Okay (pant! pant! pant!) here's the sitch so far: Read More...
