Battlefront 3: What To Expect From Disney’s Star Wars Takeover

WC - Rule number one of fandom, Star Wars Episode 7 does not exist. It is purely a fragment of George Lucas’ imagination, and authors’ non-canon fiction. Rule number two of fandom; these rules are not rules. News of Disney buying Lucasfilm hit the internet less than two days ago, and already in that time I’ve cursed more than a burning Ewok at what a disaster this buyout is. Is it justfied? No. Whilst we all have to accept Episode 7 is happening, there are a few other topics revolving this take over, that have slipped under the carpet. Or under the Wookie. (PC, Star Wars: Battlefront III)

Unjustified? Lucas is aging, and someone needed to take over the reins. Marvel and Pixar have done well under Disney, so let's not cross lightsabers just yet.

And I don't think Battlefront III has slipped under the carpet. It, alongside a new Monkey Island game, are most of what makes this merger so potentially incredible.

"Rule number one of fandom, Star Wars Episode 7 does not exist. It is purely a fragment of George Lucas’ imagination, and authors’ non-canon fiction."

First part is correct, but the novels are canon. However, they likely won't be after Disney releases 7, 8, and 9.

Disney will likely do a better job with the movies than Lucas. I really don't get why people are freaking out about him not being very involved. Personally, I think its better for the franchise that Lucas stay away from it. I have lots of respect for the man, but he is an awful director.

As for the games, I would be interested to finally leave the prequel era. In fact, I would like to see 1313 take place during the Coruscant uprising or any time after the OT.

I honestly can't say what effect Disney will have on Star Wars. I'm not crazy about trampling over established lore, but I'll give it a chance.

The one beacon of hope that I have is finally getting out of the prequel era. I am sick of it.
