'Star Wars' ... nothing but 'Star Wars'

We hope you guys like Star Wars (duh, of course you do) because really big news has just been revealed at the theater owners convention, CinemaCon today. According to Collider, Disney Studios is planning on releasing a new Star Wars film every summer, starting in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII.

Collider reported, "The studio will alternate every other year with an 'Episode' film and a standalone film, and based on previous rumors there certainly won’t be a lack of characters for them to mine."

It’s really not news that Luke, Leia and Han may be returning to the J.J. Abrams-directed Episode VII. George Lucas has said original cast members, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford "are pretty much in final stages of negotiation."

There is still much speculation on the characters and content of Episode VII, let alone the prospect of the never ending parade of future Star Wars films. Are you on board the Millennium Falcon with this announcement? Or should the studios put a choke hold on this grand undertaking?
