In no specific order.

1. A reboot. I cringe at the very possibility that Disney won't know how to do a movie that would fit in the Expanded Universe and decide then to create a alternate canon.

2. A movie that invalidates and/or contradicts events in the the Expanded Universe. Let's say a Sith cult rises in 9 ABY and threatens the entire galaxy, but wait that is the period where the Thrawn Crisis took place. Yeah, that never happened, we are retconning this so that the live-action movie can be right.

3. No asspulls. Don't use the Force as the only explanation for everything that happens.

4. Fanservice in the sense of of bringing elements from the previous movies for no purpose. If you intend to bring back beloved and iconic characters at least make them relevant.

5. Something too kid-friendly or catered to teenagers. Remember its Disney we are talking about.

I agree with this the credits you posted make me cringe and laugh at the same time.

They should really start off in the far future and start off a new part of Star Wars everything should be completely new that way nothing of the already established EU and of course the films gets ruined,and things dont get convoluted,this would also still give room for parts of the EU which has already been established to continue to grow,such as events between episode 3 and 4 and the Legacy era.Either that or they should establish a new part before already established canon like KOTR.

I mean if they go about it right it could work.

@SandMan_: I'm pushing the idea around of facial mapping via digital capture. De-age the original cast, have them do the voice and face acting, and paste their images on body actors. The story could continue anywhere after Return.

I see. I wasn't really counting with them returning anyway, much less being the protagonists this time specially for Ford who already did that before with Indiana Jones. That said, I don't think the Skywalkers will be focused on the new trilogy (but I wouldn't mind if they would).

@mrdecepticonleader: Yeah, they should go beyond Legacy Era where its pretty much guaranteed they won't screw up the EU canon. I still think they should do a separate Old Republic CG movie too.

It'll be just a matter of time before Disney does a reboot of the original series. You can only go so long without Darth Vader....

Didn't Lucas already say that the EU isn't official canon?

I doubt Disney will change that policy. Unless they DO plan on adapting some of the EU stories. Which I kinda doubt.

Yeh, like JB in Tron Legacy.

@mrdecepticonleader: Also, Star Wars has several canons that either intecect or take precedence over the others.G-Canon is the supreme canon; purely the movies themselves and anything Lucas says or writes is true. Two steps below that is the C-Canon I believe; the novelizations of the films plus the EU. Thus, the Luke from the films exist in the EU, but with the advanced feats only true for the EU in C-Canon, while the G-Canon nullifies anything that contradicts what was seen in the films. This and/or this is better for and explaination.

Nic Cage would elevate SW to a height they could never dream of.

Also, it's Disney we're talking about. They just paid over 4 billion dollars, I'm 100% sure they won't tank the franchise. Plus, their movies have adult themes running through them, and that's just the children's ones. They have some of the best writers in the world, combine those with the ones already working for SW and I don't see how it ends up bad.

Harrison Ford wants to come back, bring him back. I don't think casual fans will identify with the EU. Just continue the story, leave some characters out, and fill it with Jedi and Sith. People will love it.

@mrdecepticonleader: They are both cannon just there is EU cannon and Movie cannon, the prequel trilogy and the Clone Wars have already proven exactly how much Hollywood cares about the EU. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the expanded universe just saying its not really something that concerns the movies, well at least as far as George Lucas was concerned. Disney may decide to make it canonical to the movie universe but until then, like it or not Lucas is still technically the ultimate authority on what is and isn't cannon.

Jar Jar Binks will be one of the main protagonists played by Gary Busey, who will have a huge sub-plot in the movie. And Nicholas Cage & Lindsey Lohan will play older versions of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia... Also, it will also not be a live action sequel, it will be done entirely through CGI animation.

Why a subplot when the entire movie could revolve around him -_-

And Nicholas Cage would probably go Wicker Man on "Luke I am your father" scene :P

But seriously I personally prefer a CGI movie like the Old Republic intros, not like the the Clone Wars cartoon.
