Stop ignoring the ******* Muppets!
They've owned the Muppets for quite a while. It slips the mind.
Andalite Bandit for film runner
I've come to these forums to read a discussion about Star Wars, that hasn't happened in a very long time.
I blame you for this Disney!
Leland Chee has understandably been getting tonnes of questions on Twitter...
This quote (from George's interview today) gives me hope that it'll respect continuity.
I bet Ahsoka Tano is the new main character!
What if Dave Filoni is made director....
So was it a dream?
BEST NEWS IN SW HISTORY!!! The Emperor has finally been vanquished thanks to his long-time weakness...cold, hard CA$H!
There is finally a chance for the series to be redeemed. There is finally hope for a good SW film. This is seriously one of the biggest news stories in film history! The franchise is finally in different hands and there is potential for someone to work on it who has actual film-writing and directorial abilities!!! Unbelievable. This is bigger than the pre-TPM run-up.
Disney now has the chance to elevate the franchise to the level it deserves. The way they have handled the Marvel films gives a lot of confidence that they can do this right. If these films are anywhere close to the level to the X-Man First Class in terms of acting, direction and writing, it will be mind-blowing.
Now, speaking honestly...
I think the best option would be a distant sequel. The original saga is done: maybe it wasn't intended to be Anakin's story when the first movie was released, but it is now. Anything that added to it would be out of place, like Jackson releasing "Lord of the Rings IV: Frodo, Merry and Pippin versus Saruman".
Start a new saga, set centuries after ROTJ, with new characters and the classic backdrop of the Force, Jedi, lightsabers, aliens and droids. You can even have Artoo for cohesiveness if you really want to. Create new characters that hook a new generation while using a proven formula.
So, you want them to make Legacy into a film, in short.
Without the angst, preferably. Teehee.
I mean, the Legacy authors took the same path because they were looking to create a new ongoing saga, and Disney appear to want to do the same.
I would be fine with this. It obviously opens up the doors for all sorts of plotlines since, presumably, the Republic would have experienced centuries of peace.
But if Disney wanted to take another crack at Vader's story, I would love it. Just scrap the prequels and get Vader's story done right. Not to mention the financial incentive of having a good director, credible actors and the Vader mask on the screen again is probably too lucrative to resist.
i now have a scant 3 years to destroy capitalism if i want to prevent a new star wars film... a daunting task
Fox claims the new movies "will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond "Return of the Jedi," "
That's news to me, though it's not unlike Fox to get things wrong.
Depending on who the US elects President next week, that job might be done for you
There's nothing about that in the press release or the Lucas video. We know nothing about the plot: anything said by Fox is speculation.
Surely Hamill, Fisher and Ford are too old to do more Star Wars? Hamill looked dreadful the last picture I saw of him... And I doubt Harrison would even want to be involved.
I do think the new movies will inevitavly contain the R2 and 3PO, but beyond that I think the characters will be entirely new.
They aren't too old to be in it, but having them as main characters who fly around fighting and whatnot I don't think would really work.
Nothing wrong with them having cameos though if they want to be part of it, though I doubt they will.
You mean "Scouring of the Shire"? Yes, please!
Yes, they all hate money.
I'd rather they do it because they want to, rather than doing it because someone offers them loads of money. If they are roped into it when they don't really have much interest then the performances are less likely to be good.
I would hope this new trilogy is at least mainly about someone called Skywalker, then even if it stops being The Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker it can be The Skywalker Saga.
The PT is about Anakin Skywalker
The OT is about Luke Skywalker
The ST is about _____ Skywalker
It bridges nicely that way
Also depends if Disney will let them, as they will exert overbearing control over the films, right?
I don't really want to see old Han and Leia. Old Indy and Marion was mindscarring enough.
Won't Disney be the one footing the money for all the movies? If so they will be the ones deciding wether to pay large amounts to tempt Hamill & co back.
