    Who said they would have to be old? If it is indeed the continuation of Luke, Han and Leia's story (again, doubtful) then it makes no sense continuing their story as old people.

    gabe usually shows up when mentioned somehow. it's eerie.

    EDIT

    also good grief it is getting annoying to have a post that has mine quoted... and someone likes it and i get an alert that someone quoted me. from something twenty pages ago.

    Maybe this is why the Legacy comic was suddenly pulled from production.

    A girl can hope, right?

    Does the idea of a Joss Whedon-scripted Star Wars really sound so bad? Is there anyone who really wouldn't like to see humorous banter return to the franchise? Human interest? Fantasy characters that real people can actually relate to? Not that it's going to happen. But a Star Wars movie that George Lucas does not have totalitarian creative and budget control over is the only kind of new Star Wars movie I'm interested in seeing.

    This is potentially great news. Despite all the sniping I've seen in the media about how dusty Star Wars is, it's not the brand that needs killing. All it needs is a fresh creative angle. Don't let any of the stinky EU stuff or the hacks who wrote it all anywhere near the movies. Get someone like Whedon to write the script. He could bring a new script closest to the Kasdan-influenced styles of ANH and ESB without making it seem dated. The dialogue of Firefly is a great model for a new Star Wars movie. Mal was always a slightly funnier and less sexist Han Solo. Hell, just do a Firefly movie set in the Star Wars universe. I'm in. Start with a young smuggler and his ragtag ship crew working for an aging and jaded smuggler kingpin - Han Solo.

    Of course this means that JR and I are going to have to resurrect the "There Is Still Good In Him..." thread yet again. 8-}

    1) Go to "Alert Preferences."
    2) Uncheck "Quotes your message."
    3) Click "Save."
    4) Problem solved.

    Unless Joss Whedon fanboys/girls learn to somehow not be super annoying, I don't want him anywhere near this. :p

    They should get Ridley Scot to merge the Prometheus sequel with the next SW movie. Just go for total acid trip and hope for the best.

    I'm no rabid Whedon fan. Avengers was so-so for me. But Firefly was like a little Star Wars miniseries, only without FTL travel or lightsabers.

    I love Joss as much as the next fan girl but I think he would be a bad fit for Star Wars. Plus he will be busy with avengers 2.

    The Jedi Council is the best placed Star Wars forum to capitalise on Episode VII, given that its the only one thats really stayed active all these years.

    However it turns out, its going to be like rolling back the years. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    I'm sure with Avengers 2 and Shield Joss Whedon would be far too busy, but I'd love to see him do something SW.

    And Whedon fans are no more annoying then any other fanboys/girls. They just have more right to be. :p

    Whedon would be a debacle. Nolan would not be consistent with the tone or theory of star wars. JJ would be too fanboyish and I don't think they have slurpees in the GFFA. The only solution is ABED NADIR.

    I don't care whether Whedon writes it. My main point is that Firefly really captured the right tone for dialogue and character interaction that a new Star Wars trilogy could aspire to. Or, it could take the John Carter of Mars route: utterly humorless, epic and overblown, with an unlimited effects budget and not a single character who stands out as someone the audience can really relate to. What we know for sure is that Disney is capable of both. They control Pixar and Marvel, which represent distinct styles of mostly successful filmmaking. And we have classic Disney live action and the Star Wars prequels, which represent another style. All the articles and commenting we saw popping up yesterday about how Disney was crazy to buy this tired Star Wars brand - that's the net effect of the prequels. Trust in the Star Wars brand is not high. If Disney wants it to succeed, they need to do something else besides what Lucas did with the prequels.

    The poll on TF.N today has Clint Eastwood as a choice. I think this is the only option.

    They should keep Whedon away from Star Wars at all costs. Let him play in his own little world and stay out of ours.
