That is EXACTLY what Disney is going to do, as hinted at with a teenaged girl rumored to be the hero of the upcoming movie(s).

I get what you're saying SDH, and I for one would love to see an adult sized Star Wars movie about the Jedi Academy, Thrawn, Bane, or any number of the darker tellings of the Star Wars Universe, but the fact of the matter is we likely won't ever see anything resembling Empire come out of the Disney studios. They're Disney, for crying out loud. Sucks, but that's the way it likely will be, even though I hope I'm wrong.
The 'Pirates' franchise wasn't too shitty, but that's a whole other beast. We'll see. It will probably end up being a nostalgic suck-fest.
