Plu-eeeze! Disney could not possibly crap on Star Wars more than George Lucas himself did. The prequels were absolute crap. The scripts were awful, the performances just as bad and there were no compelling characters. The prequels were long, overproduced commercials for toys and video games.
Lucas demonstrated that he had lost touch with what made Star Wars great when he edited A New Hope and made Greedo shoot first. It has been downhill ever since for Star Wars. I think that the best thing that could happen to Star Wars was for Lucas to sell it to anyone else. Hell, Star Wars would have been better off if Lucas had burned all prints and negatives rather than inflict any more damage to the franchise.
Lucas doesn’t have what it takes anymore. Peter Jackson is the new George Lucas. Maybe Disney could convince Peter Jackson to revive Star Wars and make a decent film that actually has decent characters and a compelling story.
