Yeah I understand Mr. "Made me cry during Toy Story 3" is writing this.
No, you didn't offend me, don't be silly.
I guess "a bunch of old guys" could be seen as offensive, but I didn't take it that way. Misinformed (as to how Disney views them), maybe, but I don't believe you were trying to be malicious, or anything.
You're right, though, you didn't use those exact words to describe the OT actor's abilities (only that Daniel Day Lewis would make them "look awful by comparison"), so I should not have quoted that phrase without knowing for certain what you had said, or at least double-checking. My apologies, Claire.
As far as under/overestimation is concerned, I say go with neither and just see the OT characters for what they are. Extremely valuable commodities to Disney/LucasFilm and rich templates for storytelling.
Also, I think that you're right that it isn't going to be for Disney to decide who lives or dies, though they are sure to care ("commodities"). For that matter, I hope JJ Abrams doesn't think it's his decision, either. Do the job you were hired to do and stick to bringing the script you're given to life.
I dont know if its even JJs decision. Its kind of Lucas and Ardnts decision who lives and who dies *god this reminds me of Game of Thrones. When you play the game of Star Wars you win or you die*. Speaking of them.....seriously where the heck is Arndt! He's the one with the answers! Why havn't we gotten anything from him! Also in regards of DDL...he just has a bad habit of just demanding perfection...and going into insane character. If he was in SW7 I bet we'd see tons of videos of him trying to use the force to get stuff off the high shelf at krogers or force choking JJ if he gets his scene wrong. It would actually be beautiful to watch.
Tell me about it. I've already read all about how "JJ likes to have a strong female lead so that means female protagonist!!!" and all I kept thinking is "What difference does any of that make?"
Now, I've heard that Abrams has a tendency to stick his nose into the writing, trying to change scripts as he sees fit, etc. and again, I say, "stick to bringing the page to life, JJ." LucasFilm has George ******* Lucas' treatment for the sequel to the Star Wars trilogy and a fine writer in Arndt to work with, Mr. Abrams. Your story ideas are not needed.
greatest avi of all time lol
But but unanswered questions.....and unnecessary amounts of sexy choking *come on that look kirk gave after spock choked him...spirk forever* and guys who are normally allies beating the crap out of eachother for insulting yo mama. Why....why would you want to deprive us of that
If you wanna talk sexy choking, we can take it to PM.
Before anyone gets upset, I'm kidding. Maybe. May the Force Be With You.
Ha ha.........but seriously that JJ guy has some fetish for beating up Chris Pine. Now we've given him the ability to choke without using your hands. Oh god what have we done!
If I want to watch family members killing each other, I'll turn on the evening news.
And I didn't like the story line with Obi-Wan and Yoda ordering Luke to commit patricide, although I completely understand their reasoning.
So no...none of that in the sequels. Please.
If they use any of great Star Wars fiction that has come out since the first trilogy these could be great. As long as Lucas doesn't write the script there is a chance for greatness.
This is really making me wish I'd finished my script for "The Adventures of Young Han & Lando". The story follows young Han Solo & Lando Calrissian as they drunkenly carouse across the galaxy solving crimes. And yes superfans, it's a trilogy.
Disney: Join me and together we can rule the galaxy.
WHY ARE YOU YELLING!?!??!?!
Han and Lando in their 70s in the Millenium Falcon cockpit....
Lando: What do you think of it so far?
I need ear muffs.
Remember the saga's theme is redemption and not vengeance or betrayal. A son killing a father does not seem to fall into redemption in most cases
If Luke's son kills Luke he will instantly be the most hated character in SW lore. Completely vilified. It is a shocking, thrilling, and powerful idea. I'd be on board with it.
It would very trite, lame and predictable. I know some of the originals will die, but they need to go out the right way.
Luke's son or daughter killing him would be quite a tragic turn of events. However, I think it plays too close to what we've seen already. Having one of the Solo twins turn to the Dark side and kill Uncle/Master Luke is similar but different enough to still have tragic consequences for the saga and actually opens up more dynamics and areas of exploration IMO.
Why make a new movie and bring a character back just to see them get killed off, that would be boring!
It is always about business. They will treat the big three with respect. I think Solo will die a heroic death. However, I think the twins will die peacefully. The idea of Luke's son killing him would be a bad idea. They do not want to send that message. There has been too many kids in real life killing their parents. I think Disney will avoid this type of plotline.
I couldn't agree more. There's probably nothing that kill this trilogy in my mind more than Luke's son killing him. Luke deserves to die with dignity not murdered by his own offspring.
If there is anybody to kill Luke either have it be:
A) the new villain to get everybody to hate that guy
B) Let him die peacefully to join the force and happiness and stuff
I can't think of a C....uhhh...lives on in our hearts? IDK
While the "kid kill Luke" thing would be different...it kinda would be...disturbing...and not a good way to get us to like the hero *unless the kid was like brainwashed and then feels horribly guilty and then desperatly seeks redemption and the rest of the two films is him try to gain back peoples trust....but either way...no...just no*
