    Default How likely is Disney to reboot the original trilogy?

    Face it, when you heard Disney snagged this franchise in the back of your minds you knew that this was an option that was open to them.

    I never entertained the possibility for a moment, and still don't. It will never happen.

    If they rebooted/remade the OT they'd have to rewrite their own canon that they've been basing the ST on, it literally makes no sense. If they were going to reboot the Star Wars franchise then they would have done that right away instead of making sequels to the original films.

    When they first bought Star Wars, cleaned out the EU, and announced new film projects ... I was expecting a reboot.

    I could get behind a reboot largely because Star Wars could use a whole-sale continuity cleanse. Partly why I was happy to see much of the EU get decanonized.

    We are sort of getting an animated remake piece by piece with those animated shorts.

    Have the prequels really been de-canonized? It seems more like just not mentioning events from the prequels. Unless there have been statements I have missed that outright contradict them. For instance, simply no longer mentioning the midichlorians is not contradicting their existence.

    Disney does not care about canon. Once the franchise gets a little longer in the tooth they will reboot it. In about twenty to twenty-five years I can easily see Disney rebooting the whole thing. The new movies by the Game Of Thrones guys is rumored to take place during the time of the Knights Of The Old Republic era. That era takes place wayyyyy before the original trilogy. We still don't know if Rian's project will even get made. Disney has also said that they are no longer doing stand-alone movies anymore either.

    Oh, absolutely. In twenty to twenty-five years, sure. But I will most likely be dead by then so I really don't care about that far off.

    I could see them animating potentially.

    I'd like to think they have better sense then that. However I've been wrong before.

    An animated Star Wars movie would be great. As unlikely as this is to happen, I wish LucasFilm and Pixar would make one together.

    I think a reboot will happen once the franchise stops making enough money to keep Disney happy.

    Never.

    For good reason no one has suggested a remake of Casablanca or The Godfather...same for the Star Wars films.

    Just too many areas to explore and create from scratch now.

    Never I hope, they’re already making other films and shows so why bother.
