I'm not holding my breath.
Disney already stated that the storylines will be originals, and as far as George Lucas is concerned none of the Expanded Universe is canon to his Star Wars.

Grew up a Star Wars geek, so my favoritism sits with the first 3. I'm hoping (read: PRAYING) that Disney gets this right. A proper storyline with character development is all I ask...and perhaps a moment where someone isn't whipping out a Lightsaber every 3 seconds...

Also, the best critique of AotC I've found (NSFW, and it's worth watching all 9 parts):

This is true.

In fact, George had more or less written a third trilogy a long time ago in a galaxy far far away. (Well, a long time ago, anyway.)

They might use that to kickstart the writer's creative process. But they've already stated that it will be a new script, and continue where VI ended. Obviously they can't use Hammil, Ford, Fisher, etc. as main characters. But they might use them in cameo roles, depending on how far in the future the story takes place.

I just have to laugh at the news sites who are polling people to cast the original SW characters with current actors. They aren't going to write with those characters in mind. This story happens AFTER ep VI. The original characters are more than likely going to be old, like their original cast members, if not long dead.

I'm just hoping for some more cool sci-fi stuff that I can geek out on. I just ordered a sonic screwdriver screwdriver that I can make into a tap handle. I'd love for a suitable SW item to get popular. The lightsabers all either look cheap, or are really expensive. And I could never decide which one to use anyway.

I just hope for no inconsistent crapola.

The "new" episodes are almost cartoonish compared to the fairly serious approach to physics, etc. that the originals took.

When Annikan jumps down 5 freaking stories in mid flight to land on a speeding speeder thingy flying along 5 stories below, my mind rejected it.

Falling 5 stories would kill anyone. I know he is a budding Jedi, but my mind screamed BULLSPIT!!!

Lucas: "Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?" ...because the price is right.

Lucas: "I'm doing this so that the films will have a longer life." ...and because I need to fund my retirement.

He was tired of being labeled a sell-out, now he's just solidified what a true whore he is.

Luke just fell, and he didn't land on his feet.

Puberty Vader calculated a 5 story fall from a train leaving wherever TF heading south at 45 mph onto another train travelling sxsw at 48mph and landed on his feet. That is 1 example. It is all super BS.
