The proof, as ever, will be in these films.
Not that I recall everyone being happy about the last Trek film even before it came out, but let's just say my Disney (and let's be honest - of Lucas himself as well) cyncism is far greater than my Paramount cynicism based on personal perspective and observations. I think generally the prequels were so divisive amongst people there's been a ripple effect around Lucas ever since. Especially given his changing stances. At one point there were to be no more live action films he indicated. Now, someone somewhere has a trilogy mapped out? I do find it intriguing but more in a 'what's actually going on behind the scenes with this' more than the films just now. Of course, finding more about them could change all that.
We'll just have to see who it is that ends up making them!
