When you are producing that many films one or two turn out to be great. Most turn out horrible, a few turn out okay. So it won't be like you are getting fewer good films, it's just that you'll have wade through a mountain of trash.

If I'm reading correctly, there are going to be 2-3 LucasFilm movies a year, not Star Wars movies. It'll be like most other production companies. I can't imagine they'll go beyond the three-year time period the other trilogies set. Maybe every other year now that they have the Disney muscle

Achieving the quality of writing of the first three is easy. It's building a machine to reverse-age all the manchild fanboize back to six years old so that the movies are a huge, mind-shattering cultural event that is going to be hard.

Ok the real question we need to ask is who should be selected for the lead roles? I hear the tradition is to avoid big names. So:

I'll suggest Alexander Ludwig for Luke as he looks somewhat similar. Or maybe Jonathan Lipnicky.

I'm not sure about Han but maybe Logan Lerman. He seems to have a sort of natural smirk to his features.

Princess Leia..um...Emma stone?

It would be pretty simple to make two-three movies a year all set in the Star Wars universe by having multiple production teams working on them simulutaniously. It becomes even easier if you make them in groups of three with the same characters and film them like Peter Jackson did the LotR films. Have three teams doing that in a cycle and it would be easy to pump out three films a year, once you get going.

Isn't Marvel already doing something similar with the Avengers-based movies?

Since Disney took over Marvel Studios, they've stuck to the 3 a year schedule and they've been usually very good with one amazing movie and one terrible one. The movies, with their Rotten Tomatoes rating:

2010: Iron Man 2 (75%)
2011: X-Men: First Class (87%), Thor (77%), Captain America: The First Avenger (79%)
2012: The Avengers (92%), The Amazing Spider-Man (73%), Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (18%)

I don't get where the hate is coming from. Disney's track record with Marvel Studios has been shockingly, amazingly good. They took hit-or-miss super hero genre and kicked some incredible ass with it.

Plus, here's the kicker -- they all were amazing financial successes, even Ghost Rider. Every single one of them had a box office gross which more than doubled the cost to make the movies. Those 7 movies cost a combined $1.1 billion to make but grossed a total of around $4.2 billion in box office receipts.

I have no evidence to back up the following opinion, but I guarantee that will happen. I can just see a boardroom of idiots patting each other on the back over how clever they are. Why waste time creating a new story when you can milk the shiat out of something.

/Darth Vader is just Anakins mind at the current state transferred into a cyborg, his actual body was cloned and repaired over these last years.

//now it's up to Anakin to stop his dark half with his son. Introducing Will Smith's kid as Luke Skywalker featuring Will Smith as Lando.

As long as they leave out the attempts to make C3PO and R2D2 be the galactic representatives of Abbott & Costello, then it will be OK.

What's the big deal? Were any of the prequel episodes any good? I didn't really care for any of them. I don't know if that was because they were worse than the originals or because I wasn't watching them as a child anymore.

Your observation would hold water IF the movies not in bold above were produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Disney. Unfortunately, as we keep pointing out, the film rights for Spider-Man, the X-Men, and Ghost Rider are not owned by Marvel Studios/Disney.

So only the titles in bold, above, are Disney releases. Each one of those has been "Fresh" on RT and generally liked by the fans.

You can't factor in the success/failure of films by Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, or Columbia/Hyde Park when talking about Disney's success rate with Marvel properties. Disney had nothing to do with the success or failure of any X-Men, Spider-Man, or Ghost Rider movies, just as they'll have nothing to do with the success or failure of Sony's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

You know...

I don't care.

Do one movie a month. Do Barbie style CGI Star Wars princess straight to DVD movies. Do Mickey in Star Wars universe specials... I don't give a rat's ass anymore.

You know that guy who waited for a new Star Wars movie every year since 1983. That was me. I never took a break. Every Star Wars TV show, toon, computer game, RPG, comic, book... 10 years ago I would be the guy on the internet who'd write a 1000 essay why the Disney buyout would suck. But then I remember going ooh ahh at the sucky cutscenes in the first X-Wing sim.

So you know what?

So if these are Lucasfilm movies does that include Indy and Any of the Amazing Stories IP's?

If so, that may be a good thing.

Could always do
New Star Wars
New Indy
New Amazing Story

Rinse and Repeat every 3 years.
 
2012-11-14 11:26:29 PM
3 or 4 LucasArts movies a year?

so first year we will get:

SW Episode VII,
Mudd Jones and the Mystery at Mount Rushmore,
Tron: LEGOS
and
Full Throttle: Renegade

I'm sure at least one of them will be cool.
 
2012-11-14 11:26:48 PM
Possible Lucasfilm properties that could potentially become movies, TV shows, or other media:

Maniac Mansion
Indiana Jones (co-owned, but still...)
The Secret of Monkey Island
Outlaws
Zak McKracken
Loom
Full Throttle
The Dig
Grim Fandango
American Graffiti
Labyrinth (co-owned with Henson, I believe)
Tucker: The Man and His Dream
Willow


Now, almost ANY of these properties would be good material for an animated or live-action film. Add Pixar to the mix, and you have the potential for a really kick-ass Grim Fandango movie, or an awesome Day of the Tentacle flick. Consider the fact that Disney already owns the Muppets, and you have the possibility of a new Labyrinth film. Consider the fact that Warwick Davis likes being paid to act and is probably sick of doing Leprechaun sequels, and you have the chance to see a new Willow movie.

The point is that Disney doesn't necessarily have to stick to Star Wars movies 2 or 3 times a year. They have a lot of IP to draw from with this deal, I'm sure, and they have some creative folks who can do great things with these properties.

"Co-Produced" means that Marvel Studios had a guy on staff to contribute to the project (usually Avi Arad or some other Marvel business face) but that Marvel Studios didn't actually write, cast, film, or have any real control over the end result.

If they did, Peter Parker wouldn't have been a dick.

Everyone keeps making "Leia is old and heavy now" jokes, but I don't see how it would be such a terrible thing to have an elder Leia. Nobody thinks Judy Dench is misplaced in the Bond flicks. Leia as an older politician in the wake of the formation of a New Republic would be perfectly acceptable.

Characters can grow old gracefully if you don't make them do ridiculous things. Having Harrison Ford play an old Indiana Jones that still goes on action-packed adventures was a misstep, but having Harrison Ford or Carrie Fisher play the 60-year-old versions of their Star Wars characters in retired roles (not galavanting across the galaxy, but serving as wise voices to a younger generation) is a good plan.

Atton isn't all that young either. Certainly a darker character. I liked KotOR2 a lot too. The original ending was almost completely different if you didn't know. A lot of that ending is actually on the damn disk - audio included. Your NewB jedi go after Treya without you and get their asses kicked. Torture...death...a much better ending. If your compatriots didn't love you, you were gonna suffer through the end. They are both great stories and were a ton of fun to play.

Just make the same shiat with the same good vs. evil theme/story arc that is so rudimentary even farking animals can understand it. Make sure every shot has plenty of motion. If the dominant interest is stationary, do not show it for more than ~4 to 5 seconds. Either way, the viewer must be bombarded with audiovisual stimuli continuously; do NOT give the viewer's mind a chance to think.

Hey wait a minute... maybe I, as a conscious human being, deserve more than CGI bullshiat to be entertained... I'm being ripped off!

Don't remind your consumers that they could ditch your bullshiat and access all the information and entertainment they could ever want or need using computers. Stifle the expansion of self-actualization. Keep them from making their own choices by limiting their choices.

That's the Hollywood franchise model in a nutshell: it doesn't matter how shiatty or stupid your movie is so long as you achieve total social penetration. Your movie's trademarks and personae must saturate every aspect of every waking moment of all people's lives. The product must absolutely dominate every avenue of media. If the majority of people can only see movies like The Fantastic Four, Spiderman the rererereremake, Star Wars the rerererererererererererererelease, etc., and can only have access to solicitation regarding your particular movies, that's what the majority of people will pay for. Hollywood doesn't have to come up with anything original or even logical. They simply need to maintain control.

LucasFilm hasn't made anything good since Indiana Jones 3.

IF the Disney purchase removes George Lucas from creative control, good. The less he has to do with actually making the movies the better. However, Disney's desire to make a new Star Wars every 2-3 years in perpetuity does NOT leave me optimistic. And either way, I am generally opposed to reboots, remakes, and endless sequels. Both Hollywood and the AAA gaming industry have discovered that they can milk sequels and nostalgia for billions of dollars, and I refuse to fund that. (Needless to say, I buy maybe 1 AAA game and see maybe 1 movie in theaters per year.)

I'm going to happily ignore the new Star Wars, unless it becomes clear 4-5 years down the line that they are actually making magic happen with the property (Not holding my breath). If they make other movies in the studio, cool. Maybe some of those will be worth checking out. It's nice to see that Disney will be using them for other things besides milking the Star Wars cash cow.

Honestly Lucas Arts concerns me more than Lucas Film. Disney bought the games studio as well, but we haven't heard anything about what their plans are for it. I'd be more willing to try a new Star Wars product there than in the theaters.

But even more it would be cool if Disney got Lucas Arts making the non-Star Wars games again. Some of the earlier SW games were really good, but the adventure games.... :D

Not one every 2-3 years. It would be entirely possible to make something very good on that sort of schedule. They're talking about 2-3 films per year, which means less Empire Strikes Back and more Clone Wars.

Until now, I've thought this takeover might be good for Star Wars, but this sounds like they're just going to be pushing out low-grade product, like the Disney animation sequels.

ZeroCorpse: Possible Lucasfilm properties that could potentially become movies, TV shows, or other media:

Maniac Mansion
Indiana Jones (co-owned, but still...)
The Secret of Monkey Island
Outlaws
Zak McKracken
Loom
Full Throttle
The Dig
Grim Fandango
American Graffiti
Labyrinth (co-owned with Henson, I believe)
Tucker: The Man and His Dream
Willow


Now, almost ANY of these properties would be good material for an animated or live-action film. Add Pixar to the mix, and you have the potential for a really kick-ass Grim Fandango movie, or an awesome Day of the Tentacle flick. Consider the fact that Disney already owns the Muppets, and you have the possibility of a new Labyrinth film. Consider the fact that Warwick Davis likes being paid to act and is probably sick of doing Leprechaun sequels, and you have the chance to see a new Willow movie.

The point is that Disney doesn't necessarily have to stick to Star Wars movies 2 or 3 times a year. They have a lot of IP to draw from with this deal, I'm sure, and they have some creative folks who can do great things with these properties.


You are forgetting Gladius. That could easily be a movie.

Uh, yes every 2-3 years. The 2 or 3 movies a year is Lucasfilm making movies in general, not just Star Wars movies. The "New Star Wars Every 2-3 Years" was already established in the original press release. Subby, Kotaku and most of the people in this thread have shiatty reading comprehension.

For Willow, they may be able to use Chris Claremont's trilogy, but it's too dark, IMO.

I'd love for them to do something with the non-Star Wars Lucasarts games but I'm not holding my breath. Besides, Sam and Max was a cartoon in 1997 and got canceled early on. :(

XvT remake would be every fan's dream, but I think Disney wont even touch this stuff, but at the same time I think they will vigorously guard it from fan remakes, etc. I don't expect any decent Star Wars games and remakes in the future, but I hope I'm wrong.

Mark me down for the "actually a bigger fan of Kotor 2." Where kotor 1 added to the starwars universe and made a long long long time ago believable, kotor 2 added so much depth and depression to the universe and right fully so. An entire galaxy torn apart by war and that game showed characters with figurative and literal scars. Plus, you could have an absolute hottie play Visage. Anyways I love Kreia's relationship through the evil and good campaigns. No matter what her persistence on neutrality added insight into decision in the universe and throughout war. You can't just be a goody-two-shoes and expect everything to work out.

I've put this in prior threads but my dream scenario would be a trilogy:

Revan wakes up with amnesia and first movie ends at the reveal.
2nd is a flashback to the Mandalorian wars and show Revan and Malak's relationship struggles throughout
3rd goes back to Revan post reveal and is about the rest of the Sith war and Revan stopping Malak.

A fan can dream right?

I'm sure we'll see some animated Star Wars movies (like the clone wars animated series that wins all kinds of awards) but mostly this will be other IP or new IP.

If Lucas was still in charge it would be:

2013: Episode 7
Mid 2013: Episode 7 Extended Cut
Late 2013: Episode 7 Directors Cut
2014: Episode 7 Remastered
Mid 2014: Episode 7 Remastered Extended Cut
Late 2014: Episode 7 Remastered Directors Cut
2015: Episode 7 Remastered Extended Directors Cut

verbaltoxin: They're going to make 2-3 Lucasfilm movies per year, not Star Wars.

Disney has made some crap, but they've also made some of the most awesome movies ever (Remember Touchstone was once the "adult" studio for Disney in the 1980s and 1990s). They aren't going to have singing Leia in their Star Wars films.

I think they should do a Knights of the Old Republic movie, personally.


I don't know - having Leia sing to inspire the Rebels during battle sounds like a great idea.

VTGremlin: ZeroCorpse: Consider the fact that Warwick Davis likes being paid to act and is probably sick of doing Leprechaun sequels, and you have the chance to see a new Willow movie.

Oh god, I'd love another Willow movie. And then I'm 100% sure I'd be super disappointed with the new Willow. That movie was SO GOOD.


One new Willow movie coming right up...

It's 2-3 Lucasfilm movies a year, not Star Wars. Even with the existing properties, that's quite allowable. Not to mention that Lucasfilm is free to develop new IP's if they want to.

Not quite. He's been pushing for another Leprechaun for years and went hilariously ballistic when he found out he was being replaced in the WWE Studios remake.

They could turn out 2 or 3 Star Wars films a month, and they'd still likely be better than that loathsome turd "The Phantom Menace".

madgonad: Atton isn't all that young either. Certainly a darker character. I liked KotOR2 a lot too. The original ending was almost completely different if you didn't know. A lot of that ending is actually on the damn disk - audio included. Your NewB jedi go after Treya without you and get their asses kicked. Torture...death...a much better ending. If your compatriots didn't love you, you were gonna suffer through the end. They are both great stories and were a ton of fun to play.


Actually! There was a post on the Obsidian boards somewhere discussing Atton's age and it turns out the game writers had him at approx age 29 during the game. When I first read that I threw a giant hissy fit (I'm female and a KotOR fan fiction writer) because that makes no sense given Atton's 15+ year history of being a soldier that he gives in the game... BUT then I got to thinking how very dark it makes his character if he actually went to war at age 14... and had a blast writing a backstory reveal with my crazy Exile. So a 30 yr old Karl Urban wouldn't be too old right this minute to play Atton, no, but he would be in a few years when they actually get around to making my series.

Aikidogamer: And Judi drench as kreia in the sequel.

Probably Daniel Craig as Carth. He is good at playing a whiney biatch I kinda want to slice in half with a lightsaber.



Oh, fabulous ideas!! Daniel Craig would make a great Carth. And Judi Dench, well she's amazing in anything and would be kick ass a Kreia, though Maggie Smith would also be quite excellent!

I don't see using anyone other than the actual guy who did HK's voice for HK, though... what would be the point of that unless he's dead by then.

/if we keep talking about it, they'll eventually do it, right??

Totes. I just imagine Kevin Spacey as HK and it kind of gives me happiness. He already voiced a bleak AI in Moon, but if he emphasized the creepiness then maximum awesomeness would be achieved.

I would kind of want someone with a graver voice for Kreia though. Maggie Smith and Dame Dench are great and all, but I don't know. Maybe Linda Hunt.

If you're wanting the voice, why not just go with Sara Kestelman who voiced her in the game. She would work.

i2.listal.com

Though Dench could do the voice, I think. She has a lot of vocal range.

Spacey voicing HK could be awesome. I'm not sure who I'd want for Bao-Dur. He's also got one of those voices that's so distinct that you would almost hate not to go with the voice actor, but Roger Guenveur Smith may be getting too old to pull it off.

Casey Affleck? The voice is somewhat similar in it's softness and monotony. Don't think he would shave his head though.

Canderous Ordo is obviously going to be played by Ron Perlman. It's as much a no-brainer as J.K. Simmons playing J. Jonah Jameson.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: Achieving the quality of writing of the first three is easy. It's building a machine to reverse-age all the manchild fanboize back to six years old so that the movies are a huge, mind-shattering cultural event that is going to be hard.


YES

Yes! And it doesn't matter how old he is. Canderous is an old goat regardless.

Eh, yeah, his voice is kind of similar, but I'd rather someone with some timbre... not to mention I just can't see him as Bao-Dur. But that's probably the fangirl in me. I'll take what I can get!

I deeply suspect that person has never played one of the Lego games. Probably a 'hardcore' gamer (i.e. casual as they come) who only buys Madden and COD games... because they're so realistic.

Me? Love me some Lego games, fun for everyone.

peterthx: Benjimin_Dover: As long as they leave out the attempts to make C3PO and R2D2 be the galactic representatives of Abbott & Costello, then it will be OK.

Lucas can DIAF.

Without Lucas there would be no Star Wars, no Indiana Jones. No ILM. No Skywalker Sound.
