beta_plus: List fails without Quentin Tarantino:

Use the motherfarking force motherfarker!

I'm yo' father, biatch!

It's the lightsaber that says "BAD MOTHERfarkER" on it (actually did that for SLJ's Jedi saber).

Damn, filter capitalization pwned.

Forbidden Doughnut: Apos: ConConHead: This list is missing Genndy Tartakovsky who has already demonstrated he can direct Star Wars. (And in some ways, the Clone Wars original cartoon was superior to the prequels...)

Excellent choice. And SW: The Clone Wars is superior in every way.

For the first two seasons, I would say no. (but that series has improved a great deal recently.)

/ want to see more of Asajj Ventress, that character is great...

I think people may be getting their Clone Wars series mixed up. The OP was talking about this one: Full Size

Not this one:

I think.

What about Kevin Smith - great director... Lives Star Wars
2012-11-05 07:53:39 PM  
I remember back in the 90s, people thought Kenneth Branagh would play Obi-Wan.

Whedon - No. One smash, but fear of it getting to Joss-y.
Abrahams - Absolutely not. Has no respect for source material.
Spielberg - Sure
Yates - Sure, he's good at handling other people's property
Nolan - Too dark
Smith - No, he's not a director anymore. Love his movies, but he doesn't have the chops to helm a $20 million movie, much less a $120 million dollar one.
Tarantino - Absolutely not. Isn't a good match for SW.

Pretty much everyone on people's dream list is wrong (to me) because there style would not mesh well with the existing universe. One of the reasons I hated the one Harry Potter that everyone says is the best one, it sticks out like a sore thumb compared to the others and feels like the odd one out.

Honestly the best choice is to find more of a journeyman director.

What about...

George Lucas?
2012-11-05 09:04:40 PM  
Harrison Ford not saying no yet.
/He can imagine quite a bit.

Lost Thought 00: There will be no risks. The movies will be directed by a committee of network suits. No artistic freedom will be given to anyone involved. The result will still be an improvement over the last batch

you are a funny funny person... it's another holiday special?

for someone proffering their prognostication as gospel , your nomenclature is terribly flawed...

Submitter is a boring, unoriginal dick.

That's a good article. Christ, that's some guest list at the Empire 30th charity event.

hahaha just think t about this Disney owns Lucas films. Lucas films made Howard the duck. Now one can see what Daisy Duck's tits looks like without going rule 34.

I dropped suggestion in one of the smaller threads on this topic:

Takashi Miike (13 Assassins)

We know he can do epic action and Star Wars has a pretty good basis on samurai movies. Won't happen because he's a foreign director, but I can dream, can't I?

rickythepenguin: no love for Tarantino?

Luke: Want some Tauntaun?

Han: No, man. I don't eat Tauntaun.

Luke: Are you Hothian?

Han: Nah, I ain't Hothian. I just don't dig on Tauntaun, that's all.

Luke: Why not?

Han: Tauntaun are filthy animals. I don't eat filthy animals.

Luke: Yeah, but tauntaun bacon tastes good. Tauntaun pork chops taste good.

Han: Hey, Gamorrean guards may taste like Princess Leia's pussy, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarkers. Tauntauns sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eatin' nothing that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

Luke: How about a Jawa? Jawa eats its own feces.

Han: I don't eat Jawa either.

Luke: Yeah, but do you consider a Jawa to be a filthy animal?

Han: I wouldn't go so far as to call a Jawa filthy, but they're definitely dirty. But, a Jawa's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

Luke: Ah, so by that rationale, if a Tauntaun had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?

Han: Well, we'd have to be talkin' about one charming motherfarking Tauntaun. I mean, he'd have to be ten times more charming than that Salacious Crumb on Tattooine, you know what I'm saying?

Luke: [laughing] That's good.

/as i said in last week's "dream star wars director" thread.

Bocce, m**********r, do you speak it?

I'd also like to see them get some of the creative team that did KotOR I and II to help out. II ended up crappy on release because they rushed it out, but both had some fantastic story elements.
