The actor - who played hero Luke Skywalker in the original trilogy, released between 1977 and 1983 - is wary of signing up for the recently announced seventh 'Star Wars' film, as he has no idea what the story line involves.

That seems perfectly reasonable.

I read this morning that Disney will announce Matthew Vaughn as the director in the next day or two. Apparantly Jason Flyming spilled the beans on accident while being interviewed at some movie premeire, cause he was asked to be in it in some capacity. And that's why Vaughn left X-Men. Course it was Total Film so who knows if it's accurate.

As for Mark, I could see a small cameo just cause. Hard to imagine he wouldn't appear in it at all, even if it was just a brief moment.

A cameo for such a huge character in the series would be a bit disappointing and superfluous, unless it's going to be his death scene or some sort of passing of the torch.

They can work Luke in there somehow that won't be horrible, if they have excellent writing. But I don't have very high hopes for these next three films. It seems like they may be a huge, uninspired cash grab. There's a difference between 'Hey, I have a great idea for a film that may make us some money,' and 'we need to make a great idea so we can make some money!'

Wait, why did Vaughn leave X-Men? I read it was because he was working on another project ("The Secret Service"), but freaked out when he realized another studio was trying to push out a copycat movie before his, so he felt the need to focus on that movie first.

Very True, but I could also imagine why Hamill wouldn't be all on fire about getting involved. I would imagine all those years of fielding questions at cons would take their toll after a while. But I'm sure if they park a big enough dump truck out full of cash, he would return. I honestly haven't cared much for Star Wars after the prequels but I am curious to know just what Disney is going to do, based on how well they have done Marvel.

Here's the article I'm referring to: Link

Mark Miller specifically says he didn't leave X-Men for Star Wars.

"We had two high-end projects at the same time. We had the most ambitious 'X-Men' yet, but at the same time we had 'The Secret Service' [an adaptation of Millar's comic book, which Vaughn will direct], which we came up with ourselves. And some copycat projects were starting to get off the ground. If we didn't do it now, it would probably never get done. Matthew had a really difficult choice, and he had a lot of great ideas for 'X-Men,' but Bryan [Singer] is back in the fold, and he's brilliant."

I think they should have him play an older Luke Skywalker who lives in a cave out in the desert like a hermit. He can meet a restless young kid and mentor him for the forces of good - or something along those lines. That would be a good movie.

They really shouldn't do the core three (Luke, Leia, Han) at any other age than that of the actors. Bringing in younger actors wouldn't be fair to the new kids, just like Brandon Routh had no chance of succeeding as Superman since he was expected by the studio to be Christopher Reeves. Just bring in Mark, Carrie, and Harrison, maybe Billy Dee also, for a while to let them pass on the torch to this new generation of heroes. Don't make the new trilogy about them (the Rebellion-era crew), let the new characters and actors forge their own legends.

WTF?

Luke Skywalker has to rebuild the goddamned Jedi order.

If the new movies do not involve this, then I am not interested in seeing ANY of it. 

I don't really care who plays Luke.

As far as the story goes- it MUST be about the force and the new Jedi order that Luke creates.

The problem with the prequels...was everything.

Seriously, though...focus on the story and characters. Don't try to see how you can tie chewie, boba fett, vader, C-3PO, r2d2, obi wan, luke, leia, anakin, sand people, and the emperor together in one story line.

Personally, if I was writing the story:

1. Set some 20-30 years after return of the jedi. Luke Skywalker is old and teaching the newest recruits how to be jedis. While there is peace in the galaxy, he feels compelled to keep the tradition alive.

2. While the emperor is dead, his evil spirit lives on. OR...the emporer isn't the only evil psycho in the galaxy bent on finding ultimate power

3. Good battles evil in the battle of the Mcguffin...or the spirit of the emperor is hell bent on destroying the jedi for destroying his empire, or [insert your story line here].

People are going to go see the movie...just hire a decent director and screen writer and let them tell a good story...don't focus on pod races and light saber duels.

Harrison Ford NEEDS Star Wars


In my opinion, Star Wars doesn't need him. If he brings the same amount of "enthusiasm" as he did to Indiana Jones, then fark him.

Back when the original trilogy first came out, he actually cared. He ad-libbed the character because he knew who Han Solo was. Hell he didn't even want to be in RotJ because he felt Han's story should end in ESB and continuing it would do a disservice to the character.

Put that crack pipe down. The reason Superman Returns was flawed for reasons other than Brandon. The script was the problem.

Under no circumstance should the originals actors be given a major role. Also George Lucas should be kept out as much as possible.

Brand-new characters, brand-new story arc, familiar old Star Wars universe. That's the recipe for success. It's so incredibly easy to reboot Star Wars, since the SW galactic history and geography are so HUGE. There should be minimal involvement from the original cast and characters.

XMark: I'm crossing my fingers and hoping they do the whole Yuuzhan Vong invasion storyline.

It's already been announced it won't be a movie version of any existing storyline.

It's apparently retaining most of the existing continuity though, they aren't ignoring the vast amount of canon created to date. Before the announcement was made, the continuity people at LucasFilm were consulted about the story outline for the new films to make sure that nothing planned so far seriously contradicts what was already done.

Since they are looking at bringing back an older Mark Hamill (if they can talk him into it), and not throwing out the Expanded Universe, the third trilogy looks like it will be set somewhere between the end of the Fate of the Jedi novel series in 44 ABY, and the Star Wars: Legacy comic series in the 130's ABY (when Luke has already died and appears only as a Force-ghost to his descendants).

Mark Hamil and Carrie Fisher's real-life aging would make it fit well for a film set in the 40's or 50's ABY though.

So, no Yuuzhan-Vong War, but the chances of some Vong extras in the background are decent.

Personally, if I was writing the story:

1. Set some 20-30 years after return of the jedi. Luke Skywalker is old and teaching the newest recruits how to be jedis. While there is peace in the galaxy, he feels compelled to keep the tradition alive.

2. While the emperor is dead, his evil spirit lives on. OR...the emporer isn't the only evil psycho in the galaxy bent on finding ultimate power

3. Good battles evil in the battle of the Mcguffin...or the spirit of the emperor is hell bent on destroying the jedi for destroying his empire, or [insert your story line here].

People are going to go see the movie...just hire a decent director and screen writer and let them tell a good story. ...


Whether it's those that grew up to and appreciate episodes 1 through 3, or 4 through 6, both of those generations are now adults, or very freaking close to adults. I think it'd be interesting to drop the two-dimensional black and white, good versus evil space opera theme and go with something a little bit more complex as far as writing goes. If we're all grown ups now, write a story for grown ups.

Example: Enough 'Light side' versus 'dark side.' Is there is a gray side? If not, maybe they should write one. I think it'd be interesting to have more neutral orders of force users that see the Sith AND the Jedi as two extremes.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: They should do another Leia slavegirl scene. And re-cast Carrie Fisher for the lulz.


Kind of off topic here, but why the hell did Jabba want Leia dressed up like that? I mean, I enjoyed it, but does a sexy woman in a metal bikini really turn on a giant land slug? Do the Hutt women look like humans, just the males are giant turds with eyeballs and arms?

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I'm just holding out hope that the entire Gungan population was vacationing on Alderaan when Tarkin decided to Death Star it.


Well, they established whatever happened to Jar Jar:

fc08.deviantart.net

The Imperial prefect of Kashyyyk had him frozen in carbonite and kept him in his trophy case.

The image of Jar Jar in carbonite, originally just a background gag from the game The Force Unleashed, was popular enough with the fans they made an action figure of it:

www.toyark.com

We know that Gungans survived until the fall of Palpatine, because of the celebration scene in the (extra) Special Editions had a brief shot of Gungans partying on Naboo at the news of Palpatine's Death, but the brief exclamation of "wesa free!" in the background that sounded like Jar Jar was explicltly denied by Lucasfilm to be Jar Jar, it was a random other Gungan.

Nope, Jar Jar ended up a carbonite slab. As for the rest, who knows. 

Too bad a nice fan theory I'd heard when Phantom Menace came out got shot down though. I heard some fan speculation that Alderaan was another name for Naboo. . .hence why we never saw Gungans later on, and never saw/heard Naboo spoken of in works set later.

That seems perfectly reasonable.

It seems perfectly reasonable... for Harrison Ford, who no longer needs Star Wars.

What the hell is Mark Hamill so busy with other than voice work? Why WOULDN'T he do it?


I don't think anything in his comments suggests he would turn it down if it's a "30 years later" Luke that present-day Mark Hamill could credibly play. Since nobody knows if that's what's happening, he doesn't want to set anybody up for disappointment or lead his fans to protest if he's not supposed to be in it.

Because he hasn't been offered yet? That's the whole jist of the article. He hasn't been approached yet and knows nothing. If they send him a script he'll consider it. But that voice work pretty much means Hamill isn't desperate either. If it looks like a turd he can turn it down.

Just bring in Mark, Carrie, and Harrison, maybe Billy Dee also, for a while to let them pass on the torch to this new generation of heroes. Don't make the new trilogy about them (the Rebellion-era crew), let the new characters and actors forge their own legends.

I have given up hope for Star Wars. I only ask for a true-to-form, re-release of Xwing and TIE-Fighter games.

The geek in me though desires for a Warhammer 40K movie, but I doubt Hollywood or the general public would be cool with Catholic Space Nazis as heroes.

Also, f--k, I walked by the frozen Jar-Jar without noticing while going through The Farce Unleashed?

BTW, game idea: Thief/Deus Ex-style stealth play, as an outcast gray Jedi in the final days of the Republic and Palpatine's purge. At first using your skills as a spy, thief and assassin for hire, you have to avoid suspicion of both Palpatine and the Jedi Council early on -- the latter is convinced you are tied to the Sith Master they're seeking. As it concludes, will you work with the Emperor, criminals or the senators that will form the rebellion?

It's strange how much more leeway is given to Star Trek than Star Wars. Most people shiat on two of the three prequels (Revenge of the Sith was fairly well received) yet Star Trek can get away with 10 movies with maybe 4 decent ones? And everyone's foaming at the mouth for the next one, which according to the released synopsis reads like a 24 episode. Eh, whatever.

Hamill also gets a check for theatrical distribution, all re-releases, including the upcoming 3D conversion. Apparently it's real money, not a "Hollywood accounting" percentage, because Hamill told Howard Stern, "I have nothing to complain about," even though he gets nothing from merchandising and video.

Not a trekkie actually. I've learned more of ST through Fark threads than ever watching episodes. Wrath of Khan was pretty good though.

I think it's that Star Wars was like a hot stuff actor that went from this real hot streak of films, took a break for 15 years and came back as a flabby, out of shape cheesy fark covered in makeup that no one could take serious. Course that describes the cast of the original Enterprise showing up for their paychecks from Star Trek 1-7. And Elvis. But whether it lost the mojo or we moved on from enjoying that flavor is debatable. Catch you all in my flying fridge.

Well Hamill told Kevin Smith that he signed a deal at the beginning where he would get every piece of merchandise created for Star Wars. At the time they thought he was an idiot because no one thought Star Wars would even get a wide release, much less have merchandise. But who cares, that's just what I heard.

Star Trek has never been as good, so people's expectations are lower.

Star Wars and Empire routinely show up on lists of the best fims ever made. They continue to be among the most important films of all time, and they will always stand as towering artistic achievements.

Star Trek was a television show. It was a good show, but it will never be mistaken for serious art. The Star Trek movies, even less so.

Essentially no. Everyone has midiclorians, the stronger you are on the Force, the more midiclorians you have, not the other way around. The only effect injecting more midiclorians into a person has is that it appears to speed up the bodies natural healing ability.

No, "The Killing Joke" is his last chance at glory. He has been The Joker - not just a good interpretation of The Joker, but THE definitive Joker - for 20 years now. Long after Disney runs Star Wars into the ground and erases all good feeling from the name Skywalker, Batman TAS & the Arkham games will remind people of Hamill's ability.

Seriously, Warner, cast him in the Batman reboot. It is the role he is born to play.

They should undo everything forged in the prequels.

Midichlorians were found to be junk and useless, Gungans were discovered to be some of the slimiest people around, the list goes on.

Lance the boil, undo all of it, spill it on the ground. Build on the original trilogy and let the prequels slip into nothingness.

Put that crack pipe down. The reason Superman Returns was flawed for reasons other than Brandon. The script was the problem.

Under no circumstance should the originals actors be given a major role. Also George Lucas should be kept out as much as possible.


I never said Routh was the problem. The studio's stupidity, desire to have a Richard Donner/Christopher Reeves Superman film without either of them, and the script were the problems. Also, you'll note that I said the old actors should appear, but only to pass the torch to the new generation or to have sideline mentor roles.

fisker:

Luke Skywalker has to rebuild the goddamned Jedi order.

If the new movies do not involve this, then I am not interested in seeing ANY of it. 

I don't really care who plays Luke.

As far as the story goes- it MUST be about the force and the new Jedi order that Luke creates.


No, rebuilding the order is a slow process that will bog down the films the way Republic Parliamentary Procedures bogged down the prequels, among other issues. Look, I was in the original audience back in '77, so I have a long-vested interest in this franchise. But the rebuilding efforts were already done in the 'Jedi Academy' book trilogy, and those were three pretty damn boring books, what with Kip doing whatever he wanted with the Force and the starfighter with the capability to blow up stars. The level of power creep in those books was outrageous and a big turnoff.

If the story of Luke rebuilding the Order needs to be told, then do it via an animated series. That way, you can take the time to tell the story properly and not rush it in three films. The Clone Wars animated series has shown that you can have a series just as engaging, and with more character development, than any of the Star Wars films, The Star Wars movies should be pulp action space operas: fast moving and fast paced.

No.

There is PLENTY of time to tell the stories and plenty of movies that can be made to tell them that have nothing to do with your concept of how films were made in '77.

You want to keep the main dynamics of the force out of the live action films so they can be made into animated series?

STOP

Stop right there.

How many James Bond movies are there? How many Star Trek films?

Let's start telling your little Star wars side stories in the year 2050, shall we?

I know exactly what you want to see in the next Star wars movies.

You want a 'Han Solo-like' character who runs around with some teenaged boy that just happens to be a little bit conscious of the force but never quite gets it. You want to see them jump around all over the galaxy from planet to planet all while the 'BIG NEW REPUBLIC' stuff happens in the background. Never quite getting a chance to understand it all but get to see all the cool neat stuff that exists in that galaxy on the side. We've already told that story.


Right now, Luke has to rebuild the Jedi Order. We got stuff to do.

Yeah, Mark Hamill can't leave his job at the local 7-11 unless he finds somebody to fill in for him...

Oh yeah, and 2 words for anybody who has a problem with Disney taking over the Star Wars franchise:

1) Joss

2) Whedon

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Leo Bloom's Freakout: Cythraul: Is there is a gray side?

[images2.wikia.nocookie.net image 352x800]

Yes, there is and it's great. If they weren't doing sequels, would love an idea I've heard floated on Fark already: Knights of the Old Republic movies.

Now I gotta go play KOTOR 1 again.

/Love that game.
//I, for one, would welcome our Knights of the Old Republic Over-Jedis.


I'm late to the thread because I fired up KOTOR 2 for the umpteenth time yesterday. Love that game! And KotOR shouldn't be a movie, it should be a live action tv series that starts with the first game with lots of gratuitous flash backs to the mandalorian wars, so everyone knows exactly who the exile is when she shows up in season 2 (3?).

/could be AWESOME

Jolee Bindo was one of the best Jedi ever.


Sith Recruit: Do you know how many Sith there are on this planet?
Jolee Bindo: Twelve! No, wait! Thirteen!
Canderous Ordo: Nice one, old man.
Jolee Bindo: What can I say? It takes effort to be properly irreverent at my age.

spman: Yeah, I'm sure he's just going to tell that dump truck full of money they're going to drive to his house to just turn back around.


Hamill makes $10,000 per episode on Regular Show. I highly doubt that, at his age, he really needs the money. He gets voice-acting work quite easily.

If they really wanted people to see the movie, just add HK-47

Hell, is already in the current universe.

Actaully, you can scrap the RD-D2/3PO duo for HK-47 and T3-M4, they are more interesting.

Mugato: Nem Wan: Hamill also gets a check for theatrical distribution, all re-releases, including the upcoming 3D conversion. Apparently it's real money, not a "Hollywood accounting" percentage, because Hamill told Howard Stern, "I have nothing to complain about," even though he gets nothing from merchandising and video.

Well Hamill told Kevin Smith that he signed a deal at the beginning where he would get every piece of merchandise created for Star Wars. At the time they thought he was an idiot because no one thought Star Wars would even get a wide release, much less have merchandise. But who cares, that's just what I heard.


Oh yeah he gets THE merchandise. I meant he doesn't get any MONEY from merchandising, from use of his likeness.

That would be so very cool. I hope they use the same voice from KOTOR.

The man is sixty one and thoroughly rich. If he gets involved with the new SW movies, it'll be because they have a good story.

I, for one, encourage him to use whatever influence he has to ensure a good story for the last three movies. And if it doesn't work, and he doesn't give his Luke Skywalker Seal of Approval, I'll simply not waste my money on them.

Yes, I need the approval of a sixty one year old voice actor in order to spend money on a movie.

Annoyance: He is the worst voice of Wolverine however. I don't blame him though, his casting in the role was an awful choice.


I'm guessing you weren't around during the '80s

FYI, according to celebritynetworth.com, Mark Hamill is worth $6 million.

Caine_Hazen: OR you could make it an MMO, that'd be... oh wait...


That's post KOTOR by 350 years... not any reason why we'd need to go that far. You could make the two games and post adventure to Dromund Kaas where...

Well, if you don't know, I'm not going to ruin it for you... :P

Besides, SWTOR is a pretty decent MMO in my experience. Haven't played much end game, but the stories were fun.

QT_3.14159: Haven't played much end game


Sadly, that's the joke. Storylines are great, but the common, filler quests are all tedious. I only got through one storyline, couldn't face them again to take a second character through.

Wow. Words, they fail me. Cue Peter Griffin, "Remember that time Wolverine was Australian?"

NetOwl: Mugato: Practical_Draconian: I have given up hope for Star Wars. I only ask for a true-to-form, re-release of Xwing and TIE-Fighter games.

It's strange how much more leeway is given to Star Trek than Star Wars. Most people shiat on two of the three prequels (Revenge of the Sith was fairly well received) yet Star Trek can get away with 10 movies with maybe 4 decent ones? And everyone's foaming at the mouth for the next one, which according to the released synopsis reads like a 24 episode. Eh, whatever.

Star Trek has never been as good, so people's expectations are lower.

Star Wars and Empire routinely show up on lists of the best fims ever made. They continue to be among the most important films of all time, and they will always stand as towering artistic achievements.

Star Trek was a television show. It was a good show, but it will never be mistaken for serious art. The Star Trek movies, even less so.


Star Wars is serious art but Star Trek is not?

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

...inhale...



LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Oh wait...you were serious?
