    I want to see 2 more Deathst
    I want to see 2 more deathstars, that can not be blown up, one for the republic and another for the Empire.

    It seems to me that it was done (frankly, overdone) in the original trilogy. The series needs a new threat for the Rebellion/New Republic/Galactic Alliance to face, instead of recycling the same old thing over and over.

    The New Republic builds a LifeStar: A giant sphere covered in trees and water and ewoks that goes around to various worlds beaming happiness and rainbows and fighting back global warming.

    I really hope that we don't see any more Death Stars in episode 7.

    I don't think they'll go the Death Star route again. I expect better even from Damon Lindelof :p

    Maybe the New Republic has some sweet-ass Life Stars by now. They have the power to seed planets with giant turbo lasers of love.

    Naaa, two are enough. They need something completely new and different.

    Depends on the intro to said Death Star. If it were done as a shocker, as a surprise that no one saw coming when all of a sudden a world is blown to bits then maybe it could work.

    Aside from that there are a number of EU super weapons but th eonly one I think would work on film would be World Devestators.

    I agree that the story would likely follow the Jedi. It would be interesting to see them take it a different route though.

    What about a fleet of Solid Gold Death Stars like in Futurama?


    If you're going to destroy the Galaxy, at least do it in style

    In a story I wrote years ago, the villain created a new Death Star with two main guns and massive shields. The heroes, after a long battle, managed to drop the shields, enter the exhaust port, and lunge at the power generator. Then the exhaust ports snapped shut, and the 'Death Star' revealed itself to really be a giant bomb that exploded, taking most of the fleet out.

    "It's a trap!" doesn't begin to define it.

    No Death Star. But it would be trippy if defensive space stations on that scale were in regular use by the New Republic, decades after ROTJ. And ships as small as the Falcon should have cloaking devices. ;)

    I hope Ben Burtt is retiring to, he has done a great job & doesn't need to partake anymore

    Ben Burtt basically apprenticed Matt Wood to take his spot. Wood has been during good work all through the SEs, the prequels, and on TCW. He should do a great job.

    How about the Death Star, just done in a different shape? Kinda like the Death Cube (complete with Borg-like characters), or the Death Pyramid? Death Trapezoid, anyone?

    In all seriousness, I hope they don't do another Death Star.

    I think he did the sound for the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie, I would bet he sticks around for this sequel trilogy.

    Uh, no. I can understand two, since the first was pretty successful, but not three.

    If Matt Wood is running the show for sound design, I'll be happy.

    Ben Burtt moves around Pixar, Disney, LFL circles. I see no reason why he won't be involved, though Matt Wood is very good and could easily carry Episode VII off by himself if he has to, so in this regard I don't actually think its as important to have Ben Burtt back as it is to try and get John Williams involved.
