buntz: I don't think Han OR Leia should be in it. It SHOULD be the continuing story of Skywalker. The movies are the Skywalker stories (in MY opinion)


Er... Leia is a Skywalker.

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.

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.

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.

Don't forget a Death Star.... EVERY Star Wars movie has to have a Death Star (or at least a picture of a Death Star)

/Death Star


I don't remember the Death Star getting much mention in ESB at all.

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.

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.

dervish16108: Leo Bloom's Freakout: Cythraul: Is there is a gray side?

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.

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.

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?

Silverstaff: 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:



Neither alive nor dead for all eternity.

Excellent.

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.

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?

Cythraul: alwaysjaded: 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!'



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.
