#3 Look at the Marvel films
|If I had time I would type a billion dollar signs|
#2 George Lucas will have minimal involvement
#1 You get more story
Nobody hates getting more. It doesn't need to be more of Luke and Leia or a spin off of Han Solo either. There is a whole galaxy's worth of stories to tell in Star Wars. I don't even know anything about the expanded universe but I know there is a lot there to mine. The end of Episode Six is as open a sand box as you can get. A whole galaxy will be going through the pains of successful revolution. Will the good guys stay good? How long can the Sith be kept down? Will the Jedis ever become numerous again? This is also a chance to diversify Star Wars an awful lot. Let's get some women bounty hunters and Jedi. Is there really only one black person in all the universe? In the end, we win because we will get more story and more content. That's good.
In conclusion, I hope I have given you something to look forward to for the future and convinced you that we just might end up ahead in all of this. Disney isn't out to ruin your childhood, they are out the add to somebody else's. Everyone had the same visceral reactions to the Marvel purchase but Miley Cyrus never teamed up with Wolverine and Spider-Man didn't start sporting mouse ears. So don't expect Capt. Jack Sparrow to be hanging out with Han Solo anytime soon (you're welcome for the inspiration though fan fiction writers).
Just keep the faith and give it some time. You never know, you just might be rewarded.
