In the exact same position?
Wow, you go have a little minor out-patient surgery and the whole world explodes.
And so it begins, my pessimism that Disney will just take this franchise and pimp it out till it's worn and no one wants to use it or see it anymore is gonna come true. Spin offs? Why stop there? Give every character their own trilogy. Think of the toys you could sell!! The special editions!! Star Wars from the vault!!!
Even better now Star Wars is possibly turning into DC and Marvel. In the next book just have a force time warp bomb or some made up thing wipe out the EU and put all EU fans out of our misery instead of doing some half hybrid sloooww death of the EU.
I guess you don't eat a barve like Star Wars all at once.......
Yes, heaven forbid Star Wars become over-merchandised.
I demand Morrison play him at his real age, because that would mean Fett vs. the Vong.
Fett movie: why not set it during the Clone Wars/ROTS? give us badass young Fett facing off with surviving injured Mace Windu in Coruscants undercity during ROTS after his windowfall PLEAAAAASE
Let's let dead people stay dead, shall we?
What next? Palpatine grabbing hold of a TIE Fighter halfway through his reactor plunge and flying away cackling madly?
You can never have enough Clone Trooper/Storm Trooper variants.
I just want them to come out and say. "Okay, EU fans we don't care about you, we never did. In fact, the whole Star Wars franchise is really now gonna be about how much money we can pull out of casual Star Wars fans by flooding TV, movie theaters, and gaming with Star Wars spin offs origin stories etc. We're not even gonna attempt to make this union work anymore."
you mean Palpatines soulless body survived too, not just his escaped spirit that got defeated in Dark Empire? Nice... so Palpatine can be the villain in Sequels again... as spiritless body... guided only by the pure dark side.
you are genius, I want that too!
in the end, he could have used his sweet black stick to teleport himself through time... though I guess he never found out what other Sith before him did with it, eh?
No, Darth Maul was brought back "officially" in TCW. If that can happen everything is up for grabs.
Probably, that'd be cool to see as an easter egg
Just because it happened, doesn't mean that it was a good idea.
Particularly if those dead people were made dead by Palpatine. That's already like dying twice. Those people better stay dead.
I believe I've said elsewhere that Maul's return was clearly Lucas testing the waters for Palpatine's inglorious resurrectionless return in the sequels.
Lucas thinks ahead like that, you know. He probably had this idea all the time, right back when he had the Emperor fall down that shaft back in 1983, and then repeated it in 1999. We should all have known what was coming the instant Maul crawled out of that hole with eight legs.
you saying to expect Palpatine with 13 legs, 3 arms and 3 eyes?
If it's just a single young Han movie, then I'd guess it would simply follow Han through pretty much one adventure from his youth rather than serving as an extended survey of the timeline of his life*. In that case, there would be slightly less danger of greatly contradicting his established back story.
*Unless these standalone films break hugely from the format of the saga films, which, I guess, they could.
I expect Palpatine to hop on one transparisteel leg.
"George Lucas" and "planning ahead" are two things that do not go together
I present you the first Imperial Pogostick!
So you doubt that the Emperor's return as a three-eyed one-legged barbarian was not his vision all along?!
Plus accompanying variant of the Imperial "March"
Lucas -- The Emperor never got cloned. Dark Empire is nonsense. What actually happened is the Emperor survived as a ball of energy that reconstituted itself into material form on a hidden planet in the Deep Core without the need for clone bodies.
No, his entire living body was transported into the Deep Core by the same wormhole that sent the Glove of Darth Vader to his true heir.
We may have mocked GODV all these years, but it has held the truth all along.
Who do you think really wrote The Glove of Darth Vader Zorr?
Do you not guess?
Do you not perceive it for the test of faith it is?
I give you the true author of the Glove of Darth Vader!
so HE is to blame for the Holliday Special too eh?
Every God tests his subjects Ceiran, Lord Daiman is no different, nay he is superior to all those other imposter deities!
Can God create a film he can't watch?
Yes he can. He did when he created the Holiday Special.
