    Most series of films, etc. have one or two that are really horrible bombs. Things you want to forget existed.

    Disney, Pixar, Star Trek, Marvel, DC, etc.... everything has one. And although some people hate the SW prequels I don't think we've quite hit one that constitutes as a straight up bomb. They all have really redeeming factors to them.

    So in all the future of Star Wars movies, what do you hope to see made as the biggest bomb? The one that no one speaks of after seeing?

    The first standalone character movie.

    Hope to see? Hope to see?
    Are we really that desperate for something to complain about that we're now making wishlists for what we hope will suck? Dammit people, what's wrong with appreciating what we're given - or at least waiting until we know anything before we start the hating?

    TigerCrane, don't take the internet so seriously - this is lighthearted, not hating.

    You mean "Dud". A "Bomb" means box office failure. A "Dud" means creative failure. Star Wars is unlikely to ever have a "Bomb".

    The "Jar Jar and Friends" Spin off will out sell all three PT movies combined.

    Not predicting this, but I agree that this has the potential to be it, depending upon the time it is released and which character is chosen.

    Biggest bomb? I'd imagine it would be here when/if one of the OT3 is killed.

    You may be right. However, I fully suspect Han to be killed off heroically. Harrison Ford will be nearly 80 by the end of the ST and I do not think that he wants to be involved that long. I suspect he wants the opportunity to bring Han Solo's character to a fitting conclusion and to Ford that means a heroic death.

    The mass craze here will be beautiful. I forsee it being full of "Childhood=dead" remarks and people theorizing how he/she could have died better/not died at all *gotta love them "Look at this screenshot! It shows he's not dead" stuff*

    And then they'll all blame George Lucas and he will simply say "Do I look like a guy with a plan"?

    Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established canon, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair!

    Personally I think someone should've died in ROTJ, but we all know who scuppered that idea.

    The Clone Wars theatrical movie was a bomb and boy was it awful.

    Little do people know, there has been actually 7 Star Wars movies to be shown in theaters.

    The Clone Wars theatrical movie... was awful both in quality and in the box office. That was our bomb.

    Be fair now, TCW did make back it's budget so not a bomb. Bomb is where they spend more and don't make back enough cash. I'm guessing somewhere around the "phase 3" of the spin-off character movies (if you look at Star Wars like Marvel where they do "phases" culminating in Avengers movies. Change the word "Avengers" to "Star Wars Episode"). Like some ST-era or EU-character spin off. If they come out the gate with Han Solo and Boba Fett flicks, I think they'll turn a profit (Boba Fett will probably end up being the least-highest grossing Star Wars movie but I don't think the budget will be that high.)

    Most of these hopes about a major protagonist dying in Return of the Jedi are just afterthoughts based on it being mentioned in interviews with Lawrence Kasdan and Harrison Ford. No one would have wanted it or expected it.
    It's hard to predict "bombs" now. Everything is so expensive and even the big hits don't last in theaters that long. Look at the list of films that have grossed over $300 million. So many left no impact whatsoever. Other popular movies surprisingly made very little at the box office.
