My disappointment of the canceling of Clone Wars is far larger than my anticipation of a new trilogy. Ignoring the involvement of particular people whose artistic skills I regard as virtually inexistent (OK, I am exaggerating, as long as Abrams just directs, does not bring along the usual bunch of abysmal writers and thus has zero influence upon the script or any other major creative decision beyond the narrow direction of the movie everything will be fine), the new trilogy cannot work in theory because Star Wars is basically mythology. Before stories do but after stories do not work in mythology. A story set after the death of Anakin and the destruction of the Empire is like writing a Fourth Age story set in Middle-Earth. Not to mention that the rough outline is totally predictable, the Sith rise again somehow and threaten the New Republic.
