I'd rather see a set of films set in one of the galactic wars a few thousand years prior.  Would give the writers a lot more freedom, and perhaps capture what "star wars" is supposed to be about.

Hint: not about a lame orchestrated rebellion by people with rubber faces and later, a puny rebellion that should have been wiped out.

But then I suppose if they do a decent job with the story, go into how the empire/republic is falling apart at the end of Episode 6 they can write in some lame minor factional struggles and have some old people involved somehow. Tongue Out
