...god help us all...
The last 3 were bullshit right?
Give it to someone else, it's bound to be better.
But Disney?! Anyone but fucking Disney.
There's yer dinner.
Question: Isn't there a million pulp novels detailing in exhaustive detail what happens to every character after the first trilogy? Like, for the next two hundred years? Is Disney just going to ignore all that? Please tell me they are.
and it will be the the continuing story of luke and co, I figured they'd just do a new story set somewhere else.
if Lucase announced these films I think the response would have been far worse.
a group of three younglings have to go on a quest to find a special light sabre or something and along the way they discover the true meaning of friendship and meet a friendly robot and master the 'force' a bit and one of them rides a space-skateboard out of a tricky spot.
One of them's a smart-alec, one's a nerd, one's normal.
sounds like the name a paedophile would give to kids he's grooming.
which is a fairly large assumption in your case, you should be able to work it out
Take your time now
"eorge Lucas believes that Star Wars is the story of Anakin Skywalker, but it is not. The prequels, which establish his character, are so poor at being character-driven that, if the series is about Anakin, the entire series is a failure. Anakin is not a relatable character, Luke is."
isn't that bollocks? i thought it was all about palpatine?
But as parts I-III are so god awfully done, this thread is lost beneath Jar-Jar binks and trade federations
is palpatine's rise to power and subsequent shafting at the hands of vadar. it's about him.
Which unfortunately, many of us have and can never undo
The suggestion here is that Episode I be skipped completely, and its the approach I may take with my son
as he struggles with his incestuous feelings. Han Solo his dealer.
The needle could make a lightsaber-style ZZZJJHHHOOOOM noise.
There's plenty of Expanded Universe stuff that I thought would be great to see as a new Episode 7/8/9 trilogy of movies, with storylines a billion fucksights better than Episode 1/2/3.
that'd be fun
I assumed if they're doing them they'll do them as the characters are now, 30 years after Jedi, with the original characters being mostly in the background.
I'm going to assume Palpatine will be back as a Force Ghost.
That's what I'm hoping for. Thrawn was a great character.
I haven't felt the need to watch any of the Clone Wars cartoons, or read the expanded universe novels, all of which are supposedly canon so these films will presumably tell a tale that has already been told elsewhere (Lucan originally planned 9 films right, so the plots for these must be already out there).
Presumably what will upset fans is that the new films will pick off from roughly where the last one finished, with the same characters, which will mean recasting the roles, which is never popular. The hype will be pretty horrific, but no more so than, say, the Harry Potter films, which I still managed to avoid.
So it will be there for those who want it, and avoidable for those who don't. No biggie.
And at least Yoda is dead by the end of VI so can't do any more stupid shit.
but it doesn't always mean the films are canon with them. a whole bunch of stuff in the prequel trilogy didn't mesh very well with the EU. they just kinda work around it.
Lucasfilm were always really good at maintaining the continuity across multiple authors/publishers. I can't imagine this will entirely go out the window now, but at the same time I can't imagine they'll let this impact the new trilogy in any way either.
Three new films should just about fill in the plot holes of Ep II, then. Ohgood's synopsis probably isn't too far off the mark, I reckon it'll be some sort of Harry Potterish journey of "discovery".
Assume this also means the mooted TV series is off the cards as well hopefully. The Young Indy series was a horrendous charisma vacuum, could imagine this being the same in the wrong hands.
It didn't quite work but it was very likeable.
but some were pretty bad. I think people's opinion of the show is largely about which episodes they stumbled upon.
what's not to like?
you are stepping on my dress
and then jumping for joy when there was a glitch and Darth Maul was stuck in the wall so I just killed him right dead
Disney bought Marvel after Iron Man and that ultimately resulted in Avengers which was great fun
They've also let Pixar get on with things nicely
Pretty confident they will do a better job than George Lucas, man lost his shit years ago
because of Plinkett! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zn-RY7X4Cw&feature=g-u-u
I thought the prequels had completely extinguished my love of star wars. Lucas seemed intent on pursuing his vision regardless of how bad it was and just didnt care about criticisms (like taking anakin's 'noooo', one of the most mocked scenes from the prequels and putting it into return of the jedi, he seemed to relish dissapointing people). I hope disney will be less precious about releasing the original versions of the original trlogy and I expect disney will have a fairly good stab at making at least a fairly entertaining family films.
I guess they might struggle coming up with a good story line, read the thawn trilogy and the two dark empire series of comics when I was a full on star wars nerd. whilst I enjoyed them I never found the premise, them fending off the remains of the empire, that satisfying after the ending of return of the jedi. And now the prequels have set up the reason the empire came about, clones made to fight seperatists, there isn't much there to work with, they would have to come up with a way of explaining why people would fight for the empire but there isnt really anything in the established back story. Luke and co trying to fight off seperatists would seem a bit weird too. Guess they could come up with some new sith baddie.
What i'd really like is if they just remade episodes 1-3 but starting completely from scratch with a completely different story line, one that actually matches up with the things alluded to in episodes 4-6
