Will Star Wars still exist in 2015?


I just wonder if Star Wars will continue to have ther longevity it had after ROTJ.

I know that LFL, along with Dark horse, Hasbro/Kenner and Batham Books, kept things alive but they always had the prospect of new films at some point.

As George Lucas has publically stated that he will NOT be making anything after Episode-III, do you think it will gracefully die off or will they try to keep it alive?

Star Wars is obviously a special case in this matter. Even James Bond, which I believe is the only movie series that will have a longer string of sequels than Star Wars, can't really be included as they are not one story.

I think it will go on to be something like the Wizard of Oz, a classic that people will always like and of course there will be some marketing for that.

When you consider that movie making has only artistically existed for less then a century I think we will see SW be included by art/film historians as a work that had huge cultural impact and ramifications, so it will always be around in some form or another..
It's like when you see a 14th century painting of the Madonna done in Egg tempera...you can understand it's place and how it contributed...
I can imagine film being looked at very much the same way as more traditional arts..

But will SW have the longevity it takes to be a part of that history? Probably, it has already made a number of landmarks I guess.

Well I don't know about you guys iin the US, but over here in the UK they show that movie EVERY Christmas, it's got to the point where it's considered a joke.

Q. How do the Jehovahs Witnesses know when it's Christmas?
A. Because The Wizard of Oz is on.
