Episode... erm... what episode were we watching again?

Whelp, avoiding the interwebs battles between the Star Wars fans that are excited for the new movies that Lucas and Disney are making and those that are very angry from Lucas for accepting the 4 billion dollars from Disney (even though he's donating it), I chose to share my thoughts on the matter.

We already know that there is going to be an Episode VII, based about 20 after the ending of the Return of the Jedi. It seems that the next trilogy is going to focus on Luke Skywalker's rising to confront the Emperor in the midst of rebuilding the Republic. A few main characters will continue through this/these movie(s), Harrison Ford is rumored to return as Han Solo, he who shot first, Carrie Fisher returning to her roll as Princess Leia, Mark Hamill playing Luke Skywalker, the droids that we all know and love R2-D2 and C-3PO (the only two characters to possibly appear in all 9 movies).

I personally look forward to the new set of movies coming out, hoping that Disney will not dampen down action and plot line for the sake of their younger audience in mind. I would expect to see some amazing CGI in these movies, and maybe a small more dosage of gore thrown in there would be acceptable. What I most look forward to is to see where the plot line take the characters, which new worlds that they travel to that are virtually unknown to the fan base at the moment, and new creatures native to these planets. Minor character groups such as those, I believe, provide a decent twist to the plot every time they get involved.
i.e. Jawas, Ewoks
