Brontes: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: MrEricSir: The worst part of Star Wars VII is going to be seeing Carrie Fisher in her old slave Leia costume.

I heard she's being considered to play Jabba, actually.

When 56 years old you reach, look as good you will not


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.

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

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 would go see another Willow movie.

Also, could see a Grim Fandango or Sam and Max cartoon doing really well.

Labyrinth 2? Sure why not.

Just remake Xwing vs TieFighter.

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".

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?

EvilEgg: 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.


THIS

Having that amount of Star Wars material? I'm happy to ignore the 80% sucky, cash-grabbing material if we have 20% serviceable material storywise once a year.

Again, people, READ THIS GUY'S COMMENT. It's LUCASFILM projects, not Star Wars movies alone. This is headline fail at it's very worst. Leave it to Gawker to rile up people.

Zombie DJ: I only hope the "bringing Darth Vader back" is a rumor.


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.

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?

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.
