    I think the new director will have a little more leeway than Kirshner did in TESB.

    "Hokey effects and ancient matte paintings are no match for a good iMac at your side, kid."
    "You don't believe in practical effects, do you?"
    "Kid, I've acted in one part of this franchise to the next. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful puppeteer staging everything. There's no strings or wires that control my destiny."

    "There will be a substantial reward for the one who directs the Sequal Trilogy. You are free to use any methods neccesary, but I want them tastefuly done. No poop jokes!"


    "As you wish."

    I felt a great disturbance on the internet, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear someone terrible has been chosen.

    When I left you I was but an intern, now I am the Director.
    Only a director of outtakes, darth.

    Hopefully the same amount that Lucas had in the seventies, no more, no less. Avoiding executive meddling is absolutely critical is this movie wants to be any good.

    And yet the ROTJ space battle looks far more realistic that the one in ROTS! Weird.

    I suppose your background is in drama and arthouse?
    Arthouse? Why it's my primary function. I'm well versed in all the stran...
    I have no need for an arthouse director.
    Of course you haven't sir. Not in a franchise such as this. That is why I studied.....
    What I need is a director who understands the crazy demands of fanboys.
    Fanboys? Why my first job was producing video reviews for gaming sites, very similar to your fanboys.
    Can you speak bull****?
    Of course I can sir, it's like a second language to me. I'm a....
    Yeah, alright, shutup, I'll take this one.
    Shutting up sir.

    Better effects abilities doesn't mean better effects happen if the director doesn't know how to choreograph a battle anymore.

    I've seen some good directors be given unlimited budgets and not know how to use the money (Superman Returns). And we've seen directors be given the sky and do very well (Marvel's The Avengers).

    I have a bad feeling about this.
    I don't sense anything.
    It's not about the director, Master. It's something... elsewhere. Elusive.
    Don't center on your anxieties, intern. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.
    But Lucas says I should be mindful of the franchise.
    But not at the expense of the movie. Be mindful of the plot, young Padawan.
    Yes, Master. How do you think this Bob Iger will deal with Kathline Kennedy's demands?
    These executive types are cowards. The negotiations will be short.

    Vaughn: "Arndt, Kennedy, let's close it up. We're going in. We're going in full throttle."
    Arndt: "Right with you boss."
    Kennedy: "Matt, with that script, will you be able to pull it off in time?"
    Vaughn: "It'll be just like Episode IV back at Leavesden."
    Arndt: "We'll stay back far enough to cover you."
    Kennedy: "My scope shows the movie, but not the money, are you sure this movie can make it?"
    Vaughn: "You worry about the marketing, I'll worry about the movie!"
    Arndt: "I've been hit with a sequel deadline!"
    Vaughn: "Get clear Mike, you can't do any more good back there!"
    Arndt: "Sorry."
    PT Haters: "Let him go, stay on the director."
    Kennedy: "Hurry Matt, the PT Haters are at it much faster this time. I can't hold them!"
    PT Haters: "I'm on the director."
    Lucas: "Use my plots, Matt. Let go Matt."
    PT Haters: The plot is strong with this one.
    Lucas: "Matt, trust me."
    Fanboys: "His twitter feed's off. Matt, you switched off your twitter feed. What's wrong?"
    Vaughn: "Nothing, I'm all right."
    PT Haters: "I have you now."
    Regular Moviegoers: "Yeeeeha!"
    PT Haters: "What?"
    Regular Moviegoers: "You're all clear kid. Now let's blow this thing and get in line again!"
    Regular Moviegoers: "Great movie kid, that was one in a million!"
    Lucas: "Remember, my plots will be with you - always."

    "So, what do ya think of it?"
    "I'm trying not to, kid."
    "...good."
    "Still, it's got a good script. I don't know, you think this franchise and a guy like me..."
    "No."

    Your over confinence is your weakness.
    Your faith in your director is yours.

    The ability to direct a star wars movie does not make you intelligent.

    Please don't shoot the messenger but I emailed Supershadow inquiring about the controversy against him and he told me that there's been a long history of a hostile slander campaign against him due to jealousy from Star Wars fandom of his close friendship with George Lucas.

    They're also hostile towards him because he was charging money for premium membership to his website that he donating to childrens charities.

    He also mentioned that the jealous hostile Star Wars fans were stalking and harrassing his girlfriend's website as well disrupting her internet modeling career.

    Those are his words. His side of the story so please don't shoot me. I just wanted to put out his side of the story.

    So is it possible that he's just misunderstood?
