    Anthony Daniels has just been confirmed to appear at Celebration Europe by the official site. C'mon, this has to be the big whoop-de-do we're waiting for! :p

    EDIT: Hmm, they've also posted a 'History of May the 4th' which is interesting. Man, I need some news... :p

    I double checked this whole thread and didn't see this clip posted, I thought it was relevant and interesting to see:

    This is Star Wars. Once the script takes precedence over the visuals and music, it's become just another Hollywood drama.

    To put it another way, the pre-production paintings are all that matters.

    I don't care unless it's official. When is it going official? Who cares if it isn't?

    Wow, that is really interesting. So the rough time frame from WAY back then is still in play. Also, by the sound of that, Lucas may have had at least a rough idea of what Episode 7 was going to be at the time.

    I think the problem is that, at this point, the story has become complicated, which it was not with the OT. When we didn't know anything about Anakin, The Force, The Sith, The Clone Wars, the rule of two, midicolorians, Padme, and so on, we were able to simply enjoy the "ride" that Star Wars took us on. Now that we have all this info, the visual is not enough to make it work.

    When Star Wars came out, it was a nice, simple story based on classic archetypes, set it space with newly invented special effects to make that's setting believable. The effects enhanced the story.

    With the ST, there is a lot of "dot connecting" to do in the story, which great visuals will not cover for. The writing must be strong for this to work. And I mean really work, not just box office. There are plenty of films that are visually spectacular and make a ton of money, but have no story what-so-ever.

    I don't think anyone here wants to see an ST lacking in either area.

    Yeah last thing I want is Star Wars to become Transformers *being all "ehh who cares about story and characters. Just throw in some fancy set pieces, CGI, some stupid easter eggs and Lightsabers and people will be happy*. I do not want that to happen

    Couldn't agree more. I'm guessing that Academy Award nominated writers Arndt and Kasdan will help to keep that from happening. Keeping Bay away from the ST will also help.

    Yes it is. Kinda makes you think George knew what he was talking about in interviews when he said:

    "In the sequel Luke would be a sixty-year-old Jedi knight. Han Solo and Leia would be together…The sequel focuses mainly on Luke, and Lucas says Mark Hamill will have first crack at the part if he is old enough."

    and

    that he had "titles and ten-page story outlines for each of" the nine episodes

    I love when Mark throws in impressions like that. He does a good Harrison Ford too.

    How can you ? I'm on a high since last October.

    Luke Skywalker as an Obi-Wan type of Jedi.....I thought this storyline would be stuff of legend.

    No

    We will see it...

    It's confirmed: Carrie is gonna play Jabba the Hutt's granddaughter.

    Harrison is gonna play a bounty hunter looking for one last paycheck before riding off into the sunset forever.

    Mark, like Obi Wan, has spent the last thirty years wandering around in obscurity looking for relevance.

    Which leaves me pondering... George Lucas confirms (almost) Big Three return! Which of the Big Three in the draft will be Geno Smith...

    I'm afraid to go into any forum other than this one so I just decided to post it here.

    ^ True. I must confess, I really had no idea Harrison is so funny. He should do more comedies.

    New Leia Novel set in between Hope and Empire. I guess they are really getting people ready for the return of the Big 3:

    I wonder when they took that photo of Carrie... or maybe it's photoshopped. That's a TESB hairstyle, but not the clothes.

    That's not her body. Her head from The Empire Strikes Back is Photoshopped onto a model's body.
