    Abandon the EU, make it about geriatric Jedi, who gives a fuck? They could film a Jawa sitting on the pot straining to drop a turd and they'll make a billion dollars.

    This is great news, I guess it'll serve as a reboot like the new Star Trek, could even have a couple of the original actors in to bridge the gap. They might as well have announced VIII and IX along with it because they're obviously going to happen. Lucas will be nowhere near it so it probably won't suck. I've always though Star Wars would be a pretty hard franchise to fuck up, and I'm already feeling pretty confident that this one will be at least decent.

    They pretty much HAVE announced 8 and 9. They've committed to 2015 for the first one and said more films will follow in the following years.

    I'm sure Hayden Christianson is excited at the prospect of a cameo/work.

    Check reviews of the films all over (Amazon is a good start). Others have overcome the initial review trashing that was popular at first. Real star wars fans have started to be more pragmatic about all the films, and been able to watch the newer films without the burden of +20years expectation, and feeling 1,2,3 have to yield to 4,5,6's historical requirements to be great.
    So they're 'real' Star Wars fans because they have terrible taste in films and are happy to accept any old shit in that universe as being good.

    Funny you say that as he is signed up to Bill Gates' Giving Pledge to give away at least 50% of his wealth to charity.

    Guilty conscience? :)

    So selling the franchise you've been working on (and ruining) for decades isn't whoring out for cash?

    Crazy sums of money, this. I guess we'll only be able to judge once the films are out.

    Pros: Lucas won't be back behind the camera. IMO, the best 2 Star Wars films were the two he didn't direct, and that can't be coincidence.

    Cons: everything else. Disney will kiddy-fy it even further (expect more Ewoks and Jar Jars, not less). I just don't feel we need more SW really.

    I do doff my cap to Lucas though: he's sure made an obscene amount of cash from one idea!

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Oh, so I didn't dream this then. Shame.


    Pretty much my thoughts edd. As others have said, Disney can make some decent "grown up" kids films so let's see. And let's not kid ourselves, that's exactly all SW ever was.

    I can't see why people are nervous about this.

    Anyone, literally, ANYONE could handle Star Wars better than George Lucas.

    I hope it really focuses on the politics. The Thick of It in space.

    Joss Whedon already did an awesome TV series and film about Han Solo. It was better without all the Jedi nonsense.

    I wouldn't debate that there are people around now who can handle Star Wars better than Lucas... I mean, look at the guy, he clearly hasn't given a damn about making movies for years! He has no passion for it whatsoever.

    However, Star Wars should just be left the hell alone! Why do we need more? Make cartoons, games, books if you must... but, please, no more films!

    He did direct most of Jedi, despite credit going to Richard Marquand.

    Lucas has been very bad at this too.

    Personally I don't care. I saw the prequels and hated them. Now I pretend they never happened.

    What I'd love is a mockumentary series set in the SW universe.

    Or a Reboot overseen by Michael Bay. Possibly directed by Zack Snyder.

    No matter what Disney do with Star Wars I bet 100 credits and this used speeder they wouldn't have whored out Yoda to Vodafone.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I really hope they don't have Mark Hamill in the next film. He does great voice work, but he looks like crap nowadays.

    If someone was offering me 4.05 billion I'd be a whore for money too. I'd put on some lipstick and let them paint me like one of their French girls.

    A reboot is the best thing they could do. I mean come on who would not want to see the meltdown that could produce amongst Star wars fans.

    Fuck a reboot, just make it look like the old films. I'd love to see the Thrawn trilogy, but then you've got to think about who will play Luke and Han etc. The best thing would probably be just to start a new story, with a new set of characters.
  • Deleted user 31 October 2012 09:55:26
    In a universe that is potentially so vast why reboot? It's not like Star Trek.

    Why reboot? Because of the rage it might invoke. That is the best chance of getting entertainment out of the franchise at this stage.

    I have just thought of a perfect piece of recasting for Darth Vader. Christian fucking Bale. I mean come on he has silly voices down pat and I am sure he could come up with something special for Darth.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
