Since selling Lucasfilm to Disney, Lucas has stated publically that he will be a "creative consultant" on the upcoming sequels. I do think the new, Disney-owned Lucasfilm wants to distance itself from the prequels, judging from its decision to cancel The Clone Wars, a show that just won an Emmy. And a good way for Disney to distance itself from the prequels is to distance itself from the man who is responsible for the prequels, George Lucas. If that's what the new Lucasfilm is doing, it's making a huge mistake.
