The lights are on
Do you like Star Wars? are you a megafan who feels strongly about a particular movie or character? or are you just into the starfighters and lightsabers?. Whatever category you fall into, you'll find something here.
At the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas today, Disney and Lucasfilm revealed that beginning in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII, a new film set in the galaxy created by George Lucas will be released each summer
J.J. Abrams' Episode VII will come first in the summer of 2015 and will be followed every summer after with another new Star Wars movie, alternating between the standalone films we've heard about and the new trilogy that begins with Episode VII.
My general reaction
As for what those standalone films will be -- among the rumored projects have been a Yoda flick, young Han Solo adventures, a Seven Samurai-type Jedi film -- nobody knows. What do you think?

Carbonite confirmed to be a short 11-year old cosplaying girl.
My world is shattered.
This will either be great or horrible. Or maybe both. You never know, the standalones could be amazing and the trilogy awful or vice versa.

The first thing that popped in my head: "So, Activison is making Star Wars now?" I know, it's a bit extreme, but I'm really dubious as to whether this is a good idea.
@Darth-Carbonite: Pretty much what I thought. I don't think this will turn out well. The word over-saturation comes to mind.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
I think that those could be the Clone Wars episodes we never got. But I am also afraid as I have seen what happens when game series go for the yearly release (Assasins Creed3).
So Abrams wants to do what Peter Jackson did with The Lord of the Rings/Hobbit? Except his is always released in the winter.
@Luis: I agree 100 percent. Assassin's Creed 3...sheesh. A yearly release did not help that game at all. It can be different when doing a movie trilogy though. If they just film it all then and there and edit everything that needs to be edited, they can get it done right. Once VII comes out they edit for VIII, and when that is out IX gets edited. I'm still not too crazy about this new trilogy though so I don't know what to think.
