I really hope this works but I am not building my hopes up. I am a fan from day one, although I cant remember first seeing 'Star Wars' (as it was) at the cinema as I was only 4, i clearly remember seeing the ESB ROTJ double bill there. I have been a life long fan ever since of the OT. The PT really dissopointed me and it still offends me today in many respects especially Jar Jar and the battle droids (roger roger, god it winds me up in places). Yeah, I know it is aimed at a younger audience but so was the OT at the time and it is still fantastic for any age group. Clone Wars is Ok for the younger audience too and I am sure my kids will love it when they get older.
Back to the point, if this is to work, it needs to be more like the OT and alot of the EU stuff. I especially like 'The tales of.....' short story novels and if the series is like these, I am sure they will be a success. I think George should get some of the EU writes on board. If the rumors are correct, it certainly sounds like it will go more down this route. Like I said, I am not building my hopes up, the years that I looked forward to EP 1, I was gutted when I saw it!
