Dear Star Wars Nerds,

Disney doesn't care about your childhood. Disney doesn't care about canon. Disney doesn't care what the internet thinks. Disney cares about making money. Disney will gut your beloved stories and you will get Star Wars X: On Stranger Tides in 3D. And Disney knows that no matter how much you b*tch about it, you will be first in line at midnight with your $25 IMAX 3D ticket in hand because you have no spine.

They brought Darth Maul back in The Clone Wars. His initial appearance gave him a mechanical spider for a lower half that was revealed (in the supplementals if not in the episode itself) to have been "manifested" by the Dark Side. Maul was already a big ball of hate but his "death" at the hands of Obi-Wan gave him a focus for it, and the Dark Side was paying attention.

I would love a reveal of a new Vader being nothing but a complete machine created by the Dark Side, a physical manifestation of the hatred in Anakin that was shed when he opted to turn his back on Palpatine and help his son. The villain isn't someone using the Dark Side. The villain is the motherfarking Dark Side.

B.L.Z. Bub: Why is it assumed that these two goals are mutually exclusive? Wouldn't a successful trilogy bring them lots of money?

ShawnDoc: MadSkillz: late

I don't give a crap about the EU, but these movies that are being shat out are only about the money.

They hired an academy award winner to write the first treatment and are in discussion with some very talented directors. Disney wants this to be a success.

As opposed to episodes 1-3.


You mean Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi? I don't know of any other Star Wars movies made.

Yeah, but this turned out to be surprisingly good:

alienated: RoyBatty: alienated: Anyhow, I can see this, along with Obi Wan coming back. I dont see them not being a one trick pony, except as flashback fodder should there be and ep VIIII or X . We shall see, and I will pay full price for a film set after the rebels won.

Yeah, if Obi Wan only comes back as an annoying smug ghost, how is he more powerful than Darth Vader could possibly imagine?

I imagine Obi being the one to take the upper road, so, He does not fade away like Sauron once did, I see him more as a Gandalf the White as opposed to Saruman who, nm- that wasnt in the films.


Just had to go there, did ya?

/Just re-read LOTR again.
//Every time I read it I want to scream about the short attention span involved in America cinema.
///After the very first movie succeeded, Jackson should have held out to make 6 full length movies instead of 3 so that he could cover the actual farking material instead of doing this stupid compressed, skewed story line he ended up with. The movies are pretty, but they do NOT tell the stories well at all. Hint, if each 'book' actually contains two books, that would mean it's not a 'trilogy' but a six part series. It can't be done well in 6 hours and nobody should have TRIED to cover it in six hours.


Why yes, I'm a female Tolkien geek, have a problem with that?

Why else would a major studio make a movie?

Are you dim?

MadSkillz: FishyFred: It will be one thing if they shoehorn him in through a flashback. I'll live.

But he's farking dead. You can't bring him back. Unless I'm very much mistaken, the EU is not full of crap about Vader being resurrected (unlike Palpatine, who makes coming back from the dead a weird habit).

/spoiler alert
//oops, too late

Lucas always said that the Emperor and Vader died in ROTJ. He just let EU be EU. Film canon ruled over all.

But Lucas doesn't own it anymore, does he?

Just relax people. farking internet rumor...chill.

He could come back as a ghost with no loss of consistency. Otherwise I am deeply skeptical.
