The fact that J. J. Abrams is going to direct these movies is going to be big problem. That guy suuuuuucks!!!
After his backlash with the new Star Trek movie, I don't want him to do anything that is sci-fi that I enjoy. If I want to play that card and since I don't want to argue it, it's the blatant whitewashing from him and from hollywood. Yes, I know the different opinions of it, I've read it, I've heard it, but it still doesn't excuse the fact of what he did.
If they do 7-9 and use the story lines from the Young Jedi Knight series [by Kevin J. Anderson] then I would be interested since I read those when I was younger and they are the most plausible
on where the series could go. But, if they just pluck a story line out of someone's ass, then we'll see.
