We will have new movies, new television, new games, new collectible plates, new napkins - OK you get the idea. While I have seen the detractors who feel this franchise will continue to be ruined, There are also others like myself who are cautiously optimistic. Sure there will be some stinkers as they release tons of television and movies, but with the might of Disney behind them, there will be good Star Wars adventures, I am sure of it.

I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them.” Then he adds: “I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not.”
