For some reason I don't have privileges to post in the New Films forum. I don't why. So here we go, if Force Awakens is an indication of what is to come, then I think we should take stock of the changes. GL, was a visionary filmmaker, with an ingenious imagination. His six films, really drew you into the world you were seeing. There was a lot of world building and exposition in his films. Not only were these elements missing in TFA, but it showed us the same kind of worlds, put together in very confusing ways. For example, this is not Tatooine, this is Jakku, but we will put Jawa "looking" creatures that are not Jawas, as an homage? And because this is a space movie, there will be aliens, but not any of the aliens you have seen in this universe. Probably gone are the days, of the pacing of the plot of GL's films. GL's Star Wars were dramas with action scenes to tell the story. It seems to me that future films, will be seen by producers as simply in your face, SCI-FI action movies designed to blow you away from beginning to end. The plus is we get better directing and better script writing, but not the depth of the universe you are seeing. For a film, where the plot runs at a fever pitch there is no time for world building and explaining how things work. If future filmmakers are not required to be familiar with the Universe GL created, then I think gone are the days of things like the Huttesse language, Star Wars aliens, (as any aliens will do) "after all its just another space film," or the portraying of a galaxy with a complex mythological history to draw from, or culture, languages or Aurebesh. What is lacking: imagination and creativity. Furthermore, because of the misguided judgment of the prequels, "that they employed too much CGI." Could it be that future films, will pendulum swing in the extreme opposite and not take creative risks, which CGI is needed to employ them? Cloud City, would not have looked as impressive without CGI, Mos Eisely, would not have looked as impressive without it, etc, etc. So what do you think? Do you think future producers will put much thought into this rich universe, or just slap together stories and listen to focus groups and corporate pencil pushers?
