    Why does it have to be explained "in universe"? Those explainations are rarely any good anyway.

    They should just do it. Fans are smart enough to figure it out.

    Nah the ST should have a narrator that pointlessly explains things every 5 minutes.

    The narrator should interject all the differences between the movie and the EU.

    The movie would then be 369 minutes long.

    And it should be Malcolm McDowell in the voice of Alex DeLarge:

    "This is the real weepy and like tragic part of the story changes, if your humble narrator might say so! Viddy well, oh my brothers and sisters, viddy well!"

    YES. And every single Lightsaber duel should be brutal and full of sexual imagery, played to Ludwig van of course.

    McDowell should play a villain who listens to the great composer Betwigg von Luthovyn to put him in the mood for a bit of ultra-violence :p

    Yes and he should sing Singin' in the Rain when he's force lightninging someone.

    There will be nods, maybe a character name here and there, novels set in the ST / movie novelization moreso. Full-on canon-fitting integration perfectly into the timeline? Nope.

    Unfortunately, 2.5 hours of it is a really stylized opening crawl.

    We would have to have a smaller 2 hour cut first, then wait for an extended cut like every other movies for dvd and blu ray. Most movies that come on Extended edition end up sucking really bad, except for the Troy directors cut and the lord of the rings extended edition turned out awsome as :eek: and the hobbit will be good too.

    Terminator 2 had a horrible extended edition and the only good scene was when sarah connor had a dream about rease kyle!

    Anyways I hope if the do a star wars extended editon of each of the sequel movies of episodes 7, 8 and 9, it better be good. But I think we have a 1 in a million chance of Star wars extended edtions and episode 3 should of been that way of an extended edition to show more details!

    Actually, I've heard that the extended cut of T2 was quite good.

    Who needs a narrator? All we need is a Ric Olie type character, stating the obvious every five minutes.
