    A prestige drama Director whose great with Brits ! Why are British actors different to work with ?

    You've still not said who you'd replace him with either, despite being asked twice

    I'm not saying it can't work, I'm just saying it's kind of weird to picture someone watching Jabba's scenes in ROTJ and going "Hey, you know what? We should make this guy our next big spinoff star!"

    I mean, hey, I'm willing to give it a try.

    An epic crime drama focused on Jabba the Hutt and his conflict with the Hutt Clans as he claws his way into a criminal empire would be amazing.

    The belief still persists in some quarters of fandom that loudly and repeatedly bashing the prequels somehow makes one a more discerning or discriminating fan. PT bashing is thankfully going out of style, but it's a slow process and has its holdouts (as well as those who, to keep current, have shifted to bashing the ST).

    My uncle at Nintendo knows a guy who knows a guy who heard they'll make a Yoda origin movie with a Porg side kick and the revelation that he built R2-D2.

    For the record I don't hate them. I hate jar jar and aotc as a whole. I just don't think they can be measured positively against the majesty of the ot . The love scenes in aotc were the worst filmed in history of any franchise.

    I just hoped there were some more action/tension in TPM. Jar Jar. Well, If for some cosmic reason Jar Jar didn't exist, the film wouldn't have suffered or benefited in anyway. He is superfluous.

    As for AOTC, I was thinking there should be more clones. Like maybe they ordered gazillion clones and ordered them to save the arena jedi, but something went wrong and the clones started killing everyone and everything. That would be the attack of the clones. And then TCW can be the CIS and the Republic joining together to battle the clones. ROTS can start with the CIS betraying the Republic once majority of the clones are destroyed. Order 66 can be somehow Palpatine had in reserve the 501st clones.

    ESB is an unfortunate low point in the 1977-2005 saga.

    You mean that as the low point for the Rebel Alliance?

    I was going to stay out of this, but: any franchise? The AOTC romance plot was by no means the greatest, but that's some hyperbole, man.

    Really though, it's not like Han and Leia's romance was particularly good. It kind of comes out of nowhere in ESB, because by the end of ANH they weren't even close to having a thing.

    There's three years for things to develop between ANH and ESB. It would've been weird for them to be close to having a thing in ANH and then take three years to say "I love you"

    Yes, but it happens off screen. Not very well done.
    Same with every time Luke shows up in the next movie he's just stronger somehow. Also Yoda didn't train him in saber combat.

    Offscreen . Sometimes subtlety is a good thing . This is why we have books like SotE or SotME

    That's not subtlety though. Subtlety implies something other than "non-existent".

    Subtlety is more like Obi and Ani's fighters flying in sync at the beginning of RotS, showing us how far they've come.
    But I'm sure you'll tell me why that's actually not good.

    Forgive me H/L OTP fans, but taking Vader's apprentice:

    ESB needed some "hope" and "light". They needed Han and Leia to happen. Because asofyetunrelatedtoleia! Luke is separated, training to be a Jedi, and the only one available was Han.
