    What makes you think they'll mine materials from Legends?

    I am absolutely terrified for these movies. These two are some of the worst storytellers ever who were only saved by sticking fairly close to the source material. But what happened when they deviated from GRRM's books? The first major original story they did was universally panned (even by those who are cult like with their love of the show), their Dorne storyline was abysmal and showcased how utterly terrible they are. Most of everything post-Season 4 has been utter trash. They're also seemingly very unprofessional if you listen to BTS statements as well as blue-ray/DVD commentary. Considering how much they ruined A Song of Ice and Fire I am very afraid of the damage they will bring to the Star Wars universe. I sincerely hope they can deliver something great but I can't say I'm confidant that it will happen. (My statement basically applies to Rian Johnson's trilogy as well).

    We are talking about a story that dipped immensely in quality book wise after storm of swords and a saga so character driven that George rr Martin could not finish at all because he insists never to use a outline.

    Sorry if D&D cannot make diamonds out of blast.

    Rian Johnson also was saddled by Luke skywalker...whose has not been interesting since his father died...working off the awful foundations of the force awaken

    I think the only reason people consider Feast and Dance to be lesser is because of the way he split up the characters. Having read all the books in very quick succession I didn't feel like there was any dip in quality from the first three to the last two.
    Even if Feast and Dance were blast D&D didn't even try, they said screw it and threw out half the plot lines, and barely did the other half. And then they write every character any way they want creating massive contradiction in once great characters.
    I disagree that Luke isn't interesting but that aside. Its not just Luke that he wrote horribly, everything in he TLJ was terribly done. And despite the many valid complaints of TFA I think one thing it did fine was set up a foundation. The only thing I will give to Rian Johnson is the fact that he had to follow TFA up immediately because of the cliffhanger, I do blame JJ immensely for that. But even with that in mind the story RJ concocted was pathetic.

    I've never watched GoT, but this went completely below my radar! My concern is that LFL/Disney is going to flood the market with Star Wars movies and television shows and that the quality will suffer.

    This is a valid concern, but it's something people will have to get over. Disney didn't purchase one of the most popular movie franchises of all time to sit on it. With all the content being generated there's going to be some poor quality stories created.

    Understandable seeing how all of these random superhero (both marvel and DC) shows are all over the place. Not really a fan of that, but I feel like the people behind Star Wars will treat it better. At least, I hope so.

    nope...i do not see the need to worry, i feel that they will be good ideas man and that these films will be made or broken by the writers and directors(who will not be them). Also the characters they will create will be better than we expect because it is there characters, not trying to finish someone elses work. and if they adapt the old republic, even better, because they are known for taking questionable concepts of the source material and making it digestible

    IMHO if they adapt an existing story & characters like Revan or say Freedon Nadd; they'll do fine. But if they come up with orginal stuff?

    Hmmmm not so sure it will be as good.

    I think the only reason it was not Critically acclaimed is because there are a LOT of Die Hard Martin fans and anyone creating past him do not feel like anyone can compare, when in reality - Martin is old as dirt and most likely never going to finish his last novel, and if he does, it'll be based off the show with his bit of creativeness rolled into it.

    As for the OG post, I'm game to see what they have. Worse case scenario - it's horrible and we are let down (again for some), and best case scenario - it's Frelling amazing.

    I've never read the books and most of the critics haven't either. My issues with the last two seasons is they're just not very good. The formulaic nature of the first few seasons of killing people off has a side effect as the show goes on. The idea that "no one is safe" isn't true. There are 3 characters who we know are safe until the end. It's why the Jon Snow cliffhanger was poor.

    I like Game of Thrones, but there's better written shows currently on TV.

    Well, the thing is that GoT has reached a point where they cannot just kill everyone for the sake of it. Now that the finale is coming, people are more invested than ever because it won't be a "happily ever after".

    Funny thing is, my favourite season was the last one. Yes, it has a convenient timing towards the end, but it was the most epic season yet.

    Speaking of SW, they can do whatever they want. They have a whole expanded universe ready to use as someone already mentioned, but they will come up with their own original stuff, and what better than Star Wars to go in different and original directions.

    Hopefully they focus on the Old Republic.

    The weird thing I always found about the way they killed off characters then how people complained they stopped was, who the Blast did these people expect to be in the final seasons?

    I always see "Tormond should have died!" "Bronn should have died!" "Davos should have died!" "Jaime should have died!" etc etc.
    At what point do people realize to have a satisfying ending you need *some* people who have been on for more than 5 episodes lol
