Why not kill the rest of the characters?
Comrade has been fretting over the idea that the new Hobbit movie will ruin the Lord of the Rings for him. Can this deal between Disney/Lucasfilms do the same for Star Wars or has it already died?
I'm actually optimistic. If this project takes off and leaves Lucas in it's dust, I'm hoping they'll scrap episodes I-III and try again. I would say leave it alone, but I can't. It's just hanging out there, taunting me. Those three need to be forgotten and an overwrite would be just the trick.
