    The franchise is still alive and well and with the prequels and The Clone Wars, Lucasfilm is still producing material intended to connect with those first three films. Remakes at this point would just look like cheating the timeline, and then where would that stop? Would the prequels get remade too? Remake 4-5-6 thirty+ years later, and then they remake 1-2-3 which would then be 20 years after the original PT ended... Once again there would be people complaining about the CT coming before the PT. Remakes would just be like an admission that the CT-PT Saga is flawed. Lucasfilm isn't going to do that.
    The best and most innovative future for STAR WARS motion pictures is in interactivity, like future forms of gaming.

    Why remake the best three movies? Blasphemy! There would be riots at Skywalker Ranch.

    Is there really a need to stereotype people by age? Or make assumptions that "all people of a certain age think X about the saga"?

    There are those who believe, that Star Wars is a children's movie only and not enjoyable for everyone older than twelve years. ;)

    First to skywalkerz, how dare you insult the best movie of all time, unlike today that took work it was not just throw a green screen there and done. It was real art, hundreds of people work hard for those movie to be made and till today the effects are still stunning. Also to DuracellEnergizer I am still a teenager and don't need computer graphics to impress me and if they made remake I would NEVER watch it for the life of me.

    A masterpiece cannot be remade.

    It's off topic, but this kind of disrespectfulness is all over the internet and it bugs me:
    the only thing "done" if you "throw a green sceen there", is a green screen there and I don't think many movies nowadays are all and only green. There is A LOT more work to do and just because it's on a computer doesn't make it less art or work.

    On topic: I wouldn't mind a remake. It wouldn't change anything, we wouldn't lose anything. So what's the problem? PiettsHat's animation idea sounds interesting, just as a potential live-action reinvention.
    Don't know if I'd like it, but I don't mind remakes and would perhaps give it a chance..

    Yeah, I do agree with the first point there. The animators that work on a CG project are no less artists then the model makers and matte painters from older movies.

    I agree. Despite its flaws, I would never remake any of the six STAR WARS movies.

    Star wars is not a children's movies. It's filled with politics and stuff like that. Sure, children can enjoy it, but it's not just a children's movies. Older people like it too. Sci-fi is for all ages.

    I don't think there can every be a remake of the originals. James earl jones is Cyborg Vader. No one else can play his voice. Having a guy to walk around in Vader's body is is very easy. But his voice? No one, not even a person with a deep voice like Morgan freeman or jeremy irons, or christopher lee.

    I would say the same about all six movies. All of them have flaws. I just watched A NEW HOPE recently. Although I still enjoyed it, I found it slightly less satisfying than THE PHANTOM MENACE, which I also saw recently. This was odd to me, considering that I have always ranked ANH above TPM in the past. I don't anymore. And although both movies have their flaws, I would not remake neither of them.

    Yeah. Remaking the SW Saga it would be one of the worst movie making decisions ever, if not the worst.

    Uhmm...who the heck is this Matt Sloan person?

    Sorry, but I'm too old school to even consider a remake of the OT. I'm one of those people that was annoyed by Lucas' tinkering of the OT. Han shot first, dammit!

    If it ain't broke...

    This thread was the first thing to spring to my mind when I heard Disney is buying LFL.

    I always thought there is no way Lucas will allow the saga to get rebooted... Unfortunately he doesn't have a say in the matter anymore. :(

    Well when I posted that, the only thing we knew at the time was Lucas sold LFL to Disney for $4 Billion, and Episode 7 was coming.

    I felt a lot better about the whole thing after seeing the interview with Lucas and Kennedy. So now knowing she's still president of LFL, she probably won't let a reboot happen(animated adaptation, maybe)

    Re-making the originals makes no sense. SW and the OT are ingrained in popular culture. The original cast will most likely be back playing the same characters (probably in a supporting role) with the upcoming ST. GL tried to match bits of the OT with the Tantive IV, the droids, Tarkin, Vader, the Lars homestead, etc. (with some minor differences) for continuity and fan service. Re-making the OT does not fit in with this unless they're re-making the whole thing (I-VI) which considering they are starting at VII with a good chance of the original cast playing some role, it's out of the question. That and I doubt GL is done tinkering with the OT, although I do hope and one point we get a choice like Blade Runner offers. If I was going to sit down and watch them from I-VI, I probably would watch the updated versions even if I had a choice and the originals for nostalgia independently.

    have you any idea how difficult it is to make these films ? The odds of more things going wrong is far greater than getting those few things^ the way you want them .

    I am all for remakes, as good as the OT was, it's old, and a relic. Back in the day they might have been wonderful movies with state of the art effects, but now they are just old and cheesy. They need to be brought up to par.
