They're currently designing new rides for Disney Land and Disney World based on Star Wars. Those alone will massively help defray the cost to purchase the IP.

It's a goldmine. George didn't do anything with Star Wars because he was a afraid of public reaction.

He wilted after TPM. It crushed him.

I heard a couple of weeks ago that Matthew Vaughn was a near lock for directing at least one of the upcoming films but that's died down a little.

Believe it or not, the name I heard this weekend was past Andrew Stanton. After watching John Carter of Mars a number of times, I think he could definitely pull it off and make an incredible Star Wars film.

JCM had a ridiculous amount of subplots but the alien-human interaction was flawless and visually, the movie was stunning.

I really liked John Carter a lot. I watched in the theater and again the other night on Starz. It's really disappointing that it didn't do better, especially since it was a bit of a risk. I think it kind of reached the point where people ripped on it because it was the cool thing to do. But it's an epic story, and it looked great. Plus the little dog creature Woola was fantastic. Seems like everyone I know who actually watched it enjoyed it.

I thought it was great as well. I could easily see him doing a SW movie.

I agree. I saw it on Starz and was expecting a cluster****. Instead, I saw a great movie with great casting, amazing special effects and a very richly detailed but somewhat confusing story line in a single viewing.

Also, with Disney, it was expected to be bloodless and family oriented, which is quite the tight rope considering the source material.

Add to the fact that Disney totally ****ed up the marketing and Stanton brought a home run with "Finding Nemo", it wouldn't be surprising if he was given the nod at some point.

I thought "The Avengers" was complete and utter dogshit after my first Blu Ray viewing. I've watched it since and think it's an even bigger piece of dogshit.

The bottom line is to never let some else form an opinion for you.

I have no idea why this is, but it seems the press loves to take dumps on films with large budgets. Its like they are literally sharpening their knives waiting for something big to flop....then if it does, its like a pack of wolves.

It wasn't that bad.

Took my son to see it in 3D. Better than I expected. Plus, he enjoyed it, so yeah.

My view is a bit skewed because I've been waiting 30+ years to see a decent screen version of ERB but to me, it was a really, really good movie.
