I would love to see a movie about Grand Moff Tarkin.  The guy was one of only 2 men in the entire universe than could tell Darth Vader what to do.  That is a badass dude, and I'm sure they could turn him into a more 3 dimensional character with some empathy since starwars is sorely lacking in Empathetic bad guys.

(It's hard to empathize with Anakin considering he nearly killed his baby's mama, tried to kill his mentor, murdered children and went genocidal on the sand people)

Sadly, these things will still make farktons of money for Disney, because nerds have no self-control.

As long as Lucas doesn't write, direct, or edit them - I have no problem with this.

Tarkin was a bureaucrat. He was able to tell Vader what to do because Palpatine needed his expertise in keeping the local systems in line, more than he needed Vader's force-choking abilities.

I can't imagine a more boring story.

Rogue Squadron? I could watch a movie or two about them. Trying to identify people from memory of their descriptions in the books and failing utterly outside of Wedge up front... I guess that's Corran in the X Wing with the green R2 unit?

Well, at least he didn't waste the two hours watching it that the rest of us did. Then again, EP III was the half decent one out of the bunch.

Boba Fett spin-off movie?

I'd love to see the saga from Palpatine's POV.  His strength came as much from his political abilities as it did from the Force.  Too bad he picked that whimpering, over-emotional SAP as his last apprentice.  Lessons learned, I suppose.

I would see this as well.  I still have all my Rogue Squadron books and they've held up for the most part. Good times.

A friend and I are playing through Bioware's Star Wars MMO. If the movies are the same level of quality as that game's opening cinematics, then they will already be way better than the prequels. Star Wars, when done right, could be a fantastic franchise again. If they are giving these films the Marvel treatment, I have no problem with that and will gladly hand over my money.

The more I hear about these new movies, the more excited I get. It's the same way I felt when I heard about the new Star Trek movie. After bitter disappointment in the last two movies (and television series), I was glad to see someone breathe new life into a stale and stagnant franchise. The same could happen here. I'm pleased as punch by the new Star Trek movies, and I expect I'll feel the same about these new Star Wars movies.

I dunno what it is with some fans and Boba Fett. Dude was a chump, I don't care if he did make his way out of the Sarlac in the books. All dude did in the original trilogy was track the Falcon to Cloud City and call Vader, then proceed to go out like a biatch in the next movie.

Lando I could see. Hell I'd take a movie or two going over Han and Chewie's adventures before Luke and Obi-Wan met them. Not so sure I'd like the Yoda movie some folks are speculating on. I can already see him bouncing around like a super ball on crack. What I would love to see, as someone else stated with a pic above is a good Revan/Old Republic movie or three. That has some serious potential.

I got into the series recently, and then was startled to find Excession isn't available on US Kindles, for whatever stupid reason. Now I have to order a paperback! It's like I'm in the dark ages.

Play the Terror From Beyond operation once geared for it.  Disney's plan to purchase Star Wars was evident midway through that raid.

I think what we're going to see is alternating Star Wars movie, with one every year. That means from 2015 to 2021 we're probably going to get six Star Wars movies, doubling the current total of Star Wars.

I don't care, I know it's a sickness, but this sounds awesome to me, and I will probably see all of these. At least one of these has to be good.... right?

Holy Cow, you're right!

Side note: you can skip watching the prequels and just watch the superior Weird Al video "The Saga Begins," which does a fine job

Last time this happened we got the Ewok movie.
 
2013-02-05 10:53:32 PM
Honestly, they could go across the board with it and make a fair amount of money. They could do a kid-friendly style Jedi Academy series for all the toys/cartoons/Disney parks stuff, do a Standard trilogy set in the Universe for all, and then do a much darker series or standalones. Hell, you could do some sort of Dark Knight returns crap with Luke where he's some old Jedi and the world that he saved passed him by so he comes back for one more escapade.

As for Revan, I would pay money to see that movie, however, I'm chicken. The game is so perfectly crafted and the buildup is great that I'm fine with just leaving it be as a great video game that we don't need to mess with.
