How about some more Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan? Did he really do nothing but be the Lars' creepy neighbor for 20 years? Let's say something more interesting happened for at least a couple hours.

Dllr Nep the Sullustan, Plour Illo the Queen of Eiattu (when the series started, she was piebald), Corran Horn, defector Soontir Fel (and father of Han's son-in-law), badly mulletized Tycho Celchu and Winter. Old guy in green behind then is General Horton Salm. The Mon Cal is Ibtisam, the Quarren in Nrin Vakil, ironically the best of friends. Don't remember the others, but I would guess Hobbie is in the X-Wing cockpit and Janson is on the ladder.

Even if you made the ships in the culture talk in the way they animated HitchHikers Guide To The Galaxy, a culture novel wouldn't work as a movie. They work fine as audiobooks - but there's no way to translate that dialog density and whimsy to the screen.

I've said it once, and I'll say it until it happens...

KOTOR 1 & 2 should be turned into a live action tv series with lots of gratuitous flashbacks to the Mandalorian Wars and finishing with the eventual battle against the Sith Emperor on Dromund Kaas.  Though, the battle against the Sith has GOT to be more interesting and give the Exile some damned personality for Force's sake.

From what Hamill says, he went into voice acting because he likes voice acting. He owns .5% of Star Wars. I can't imagine he is forced into roles due to lack of cash.

It's all worth it for his story of trying out for the role of the Joker. I love the notion of Mark Hamill driving in LA, practicing his Joker laugh on the way. Anyone who saw that must have... had interesting thoughts.

Mandalorian Wars would be an excellent idea.  Fans seem to love Mandalorians.  It will have action; war in a franchise titled "Star Wars" is a given.  It has pompous Jedi being pompous, spawning kick-butt maverick Jedi, and Jedi butt-kicking when they're not being pompous.

KOTOR/TOR, they've already explored.  We don't need an in-depth depiction of a 2-week kinrath spider killing spree, or days of wandering around Manaan.  That and I don't have faith in anyone making a decent adaption from a BW video game (they're half-movie anyway, and that's a good thing).

So it seems. I just checked it out on Wookiepedia and there is a whole back story to that guy. I never recalled seeing a guy running around Cloud City with an ice-cream maker under his arm (supposedly a computer core).

Looks like fans have given a back story to every single person who appears on screen in the franchise. And they're all either rebel spies, kick ass bounty hunters, imperial spies, or space ninjas. There is apparently no normal people just going about their day to day lives trying to make a living in the galaxy far far away. Nobody is apolitical, everyone is either an Imperial assassin or a rebel spy.

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.

One a year from 2015 to 2021 is seven movies.

Star Wars idea I've had for a game:

Copy the stealth action of Thief and Dishonored. Spanning the prequels to the original trilogy, you play as an almost-ready to graduate padawan turned exile who uses his skills as a saboteur, spy and cat burglar for corrupt senators and criminals. Because of your outcast status you get investigated (and hunted) by Jedis who falsely believe you're working with the Sith in the Galactic Senate. This leads you to the actual Sith Lord, Palpatine, who becomes your employer. You'll be helping (but secretly hindering, on your own belief or on the Emperor's orders) folks like Count Dooku, Admiral Zaarin, Inquisitor Jerec, Starkiller and Darth Vader.

A few things that make your Gray Jedi stand out: he wields a one-handed lightsaber with a transparent blade, making it confusing for opponents to counter as well as ideal for stealth. It also allows him to use the free hand for underhanded ploys like force powers, pistol shots, poisoned dagger or stun baton hits. And unlike most force users, your character believes the force makes ranged weapons incredible instruments in the hands of a Jedi.

Klippoklondike: 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)


This a great idea. I've always thought that too. He basically told Vader to STFU several times. That says a lot.

They did do an arc on Clone Wars with Tarkin. Lots of friction between him and Anakin. Tarkin was constantly acting like he was better than everyone there and Anakin constantly looked like he wanted to drop Tarkin in the lava at the bottom of the pit they were escaping from.

So you spend four hours of your life getting zero hours of entertainment, and the rest of us spent six hours of our lives getting one hour of entertainment.

Hate to break it to you, but the rest of us still have a better ROI on our entertainment dollar.

//KOTOR would be a good movie except that they made entirely the wrong ending canon.  Dark side ending + Bastilla as love interest made by far the best thematic sense and gave the best shape to the story of any combination.  KOTOR 2 and TOR would have to be ignored completely to make it a decent movie, though.  Not that they weren't good games, but the story arcs weren't anywhere near as coherent or epic.

I believe Anakin was mostly agreeing with Tarkin's tactics in that arc, while Ahsoka and Obi-Wan were the ones at odds with this obnoxious non-Jedi fleet captain who actually had good points about the failings of the Jedi leading an army.

There was a Clone Wars Google Hangout last weekend and Dave Filoni & Sam Witwer were discussed the Vader-Tarkin relationship. Vader biatchchoked generals, but he was downright amicable, almost friend-like with Tarkin, like they knew each other from way back and had these little things between them that only they both knew about, like "presence of my old master" and things like that. They appear to be slowly implementing that relationship in the Clone Wars.

2013-02-06 06:40:28 AM
Vader and Tarkin...you guys realize that Vader in the original trilogy was basically a powerful henchman, right?  He wasn't a commander or a bureaucrat, he wasn't there to "run things".  He was enforcement.  Tarkin was in charge, and when he was disposed of, Vader was probably put in place as the new boss because he was Tarkin's right-hand man.  But even other commanders in the original Star Wars talked back to Vader (with consequences, but they did talk back).  "I find your lack of faith disturbing."  This is the most obvious, common-sense way to glean things from the original trilogy.

Red Letter Media got this one right, when he talked about how the prequel trilogy messed up this dynamic by making Vader larger than life, a "Jesus In Space" type of figure.  It was a huge miscalculation on Lucas' part.  Vader was much more menacing and mysterious as the resident bad-ass enforcer he was in the original trilogy.  By turning him into some kind of mythical god-like creature in the prequel trilogy, the center of all proceedings, much of that mystique was removed, and replaced by something a lot less intriguing.

A good way to fix this (if anyone at Disney cares to) would be to not cover periods after Return of the Jedi or before the prequels; instead cover the 20 years between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars.  You could work on the Vader character and turn him back to the battle-hardened enforcer he was in the original trilogy, and would have none of the weight of having to represent any other original trilogy character - Luke is a baby/boy/teenager and his life up to Star Wars is uneventful, Obi-Wan and Yoda are in hiding and their lives are also uneventful, Han Solo and Chewbacca are off on some other unrelated adventures, and Leia doesn't figure in things until Star Wars.  As the Empire swallows more and more systems during construction of the first Death Star (which seems to take about 20 years), there must be a lot of action and intrigue to explore there.
