    Why? Rules - especially something as silly as WDNDSWITJCC - are meant to be broken. [face_devil]


    Alright, I'll say it: I really don't care if the EU is utterly and irreparably thrashed and its remains jettisoned out an airlock. As many others have pointed out, a lot of it is simply terrible officially endorsed and published fanfic and only a few nuggets have been interesting. But I really don't care to see the old farts that played the Big Three return either, even in little blink-and-you-missed-them cameos.

    A new trilogy set in the far future of the GFFA would probably circumvent the dual problems of re-casting the classic characters as well as undoing the stories printed in the last 25 or so years, hopefully satisfying different set of fanboys and at the same time generating interest in the franchise for new fans that may not be particularly enamored with either of the previous trilogies.

    I've decided on a preemptive strike. My stance, as of now, is "Why are they raping my childhood, adulthood, and early middle age? The 6 original films are fine".

    The longer this thread goes on, the more of that idiotic specific crap we'll have to endure eg. "Who should play Jaina Solo? Carrie Fisher is too fat* / Mark Hamill is too ugly / Harrison Ford is too aloof!" will be discussed (when we have forums dedicated to idiotic specific SW crap), rather than the initial general implications of this acquisition which is on-topic-ish for JCC.

    That would be an awesome burn if I knew what Kierkegaard was.

    Fan-casting is small scale, I want this thread unlocked: Palpatine is not Sidious... It's so obvious!

    Yeah! This thread should be 27 pages about how this news is going to affect the merge.

    If the Community forum gets too unwieldly (unlikely), we split again. Easy peasy.

    So anybody know the answer to these questions;

    1. Who now owns the original six movies? Can Disney now release Blu-Ray versions of the O-OT irrespective of what lucas wants?

    2. Do we lose the Fox Fanfare from any subsequent re-releases (for instance all the coming 3D versions) of the original six?

    Episode IX Spoilers Allowed Forum should have happened like yesterday damit. This wouldn't have happened in my day. I'm going to start a Comms thread about it in a moment.:mad:

    The Fox fanfare in absentia is easily my sole point of grief over the new films.

    Yes, but Hamill must be operated by a combination of rods and wires like Yoda in the CT, not CGI which is always so unconvincing.

    Since the saga is "About the journey of Anakin Skywalker", I'm hoping the new trilogy is simply the aftermath of the distribution of his last will & testament.

    How about how inconsiderate it was to put this news out on Halloween week? I had all kinds of crap going on yesterday and couldn't read anything!

    Other than the loss of the Fox intro, my only regret is the inevitable flood of, "anything will be better than the prequels, childhood raped, wah wah wah."
