HT, there will be something built for Star Wars. I bet they will put it in either Hollywood Studios since Star Tours is already there or the Magic Kingdom. But there will be an area of a park somewhere. Disney is going to milk this for all it's worth.

I don't think Disney would scrap anything for being dark. They are just starting from scratch in terms of content being made from their new key people, and working with a calculated marketing plan leading up to Episode 7. We may get a TV show, but it wouldn't be until after E7 comes out.

I think Star Wars live action TV would be best served as mini-series events. An hour or just over running time, being an hour and a half slot with commercials. Three or six of those. Then [insert amount of time later] three or six more episodes. Concise story telling. No meandering to a point. Boom boom thank you, ma'am. Got the ratings from the event and now get the cash for a home video set of them.
