    I was wondering if we would rather have some or most of the iconic elements of Star Wars like the Star Destroyers, TIE-Fighters and even some of the old heroes back or if Star Wars does need something completely fresh?

    When I think about Star Wars, I think about lightsabers and Star Destroyers, TIE-Fighters and X-Wing, the Millennium Falcon, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia, Chewie and the Droids.
    I think this is why the PT didn't quite work that well for me. Most of the iconic elements were missing. And if you think about it, there haven't been that many new iconic elements in the PT. No recognizable ships etc.

    So would you rather have them back in a new movie or do you want to have something completely different. New ships, not related to the ones in the OT and compeletly new heroes? Something that would only be Star wars in name with lightsabers and the Force in it...

    Needs the right balance of OT, PT and new stuff.

    Rather have more OT stuff and New stuff with a hint of PT.

    Combination/balance of all. I always want to see new aliens, ships, technology and creatures, but I want my goodies too: Jawas, twi'leks, lightsabers, tie-fighter type fighters, HUGE capital ships and on and on

    Of course they should add new stuff to freshen it up, but they're definitely going to need to go back to the fundamentals if they really want a true successor to the OT.

    It'll be a mix. Time has passed, designs will have changed. But the MF & Slave I can still be there.

    Yeah, it just needs the right balance. We are ALL gonna lose it when we see the Falcon for the first time again!

    At the same time I want new ships to buy legos for....

    Yes both, though I've been hoping that if Spielberg directs he won't use so much CGI so it looks more like the OT... if that makes sense.

    I wish there was an option for both. I would like to see some old icons like the Falcon and X-Wings but I would also like to see plenty of new ships. The ST needs its own icons like the PT has. Not to mention it shows progress in the Galaxy.

    I never had a problem with the CGI, per se, but more the hue and color saturation. The CGI in the PT is fantastic for the most part, and if you just desaturate the colors a bit, it looks much more realistic. But Lucas made all his colors so bold and dramatic that it took away a lot of the realism. Geonosis was SO orange, for instance. And Mustafar was WAY too red. Yes its a lava planet but, EVERYTHING was smothered in a like, red mist, and it looks weird, imo.

    CG space battles with new and derivative variations of the OT models would be pretty neat. I'm sure there will be some PT ones flying around too, but I think the point in the prequels with some of the craft was to show it being a lesser evolved variation of what is in the OT. Still doesn't mean some can't be around.
