I think this decision will drive a wedge in the fanbase.

I fully expect Star Wars Episode VII to just trot out returning characters and references in the blunt style of your average Family Guy episode, a parade of nostalgic callbacks that will drive the lowest common denominators in the audience crazy

Hard to argue with that prediction

Billy Dee Williams gets paid every time he isn't Twoface in something, so he's doing just fine.

The thing that's strange is that they did get him for the Lego movie and some of the games, but didn't invite him back for Star Wars VII. That does seem like a slight to me.

I fully expect all or some of the following:

"I got a bad feeling about this."
"Where did you dig up this old fossil?" (Now aimed at Han Solo)
A scene where Han shoots first.
The Millennium Falcon at some point roaring to life.

It's late and I'm tired. Can't think of any more at this point, but I'm gonna love every second of it. I'm gonna love it like I loved the references back to Wrath of Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. It's gonna be glorious and I'm gonna love how it annoys a few people just like the Star Trek winks did. Can't wait.

I hope so. That would be sweet! Remember how in that one Adam Sandler movie Rob Schneider says "you can do it!" then in that other Sandler movie he totally says "you can do it!" again?!?  This new Star Wares will be a million times that, even better than Phantome Manace!

Confabulat: Sure wedge. I bet Lucas and Abrams and Mickey himself all begged you to return but you are above all that. And then you woke up


Well I doubt they begged, but I wouldn't be surprised if they at least floated the idea to his agent. This movie appears to be riding the "It's gotta be good! Look at all the classic characters we have brought back!" horse pretty hard.

I'm really hoping that it will end up being good. Almost everyone was thrilled with the idea of the prequels, and look what shiat they ended up being. Maybe the opposite will be in effect. Everyone shiat-talking this movie before it comes out and then being pleasantly surprised.

\I doubt it
\\But I can still hope until it comes out

If General Antilles would be boring, it's not a good script.

No one else in the galaxy is bad-ass enough to have 2 Death Star silhouettes painted on the side of his X-wing.

Well, he does 2-3 things a year. I presume he actually misers his money, maintains a middle class lifestyle instead of going boom and bust.

It's probably going to suck and be full of awkward and unnecessary callbacks to the originals but I'll still be there for the midnight showing because I can't walk away from it after all these years. RotJ was the first movie I ever saw in the theater and it blew my three year old mind.

Yup.  I would much rather have a post-Endor Rogue Squadron movie than any other crap they are sure to produce.  Maybe with main characters who could actually die the series would regain some tension and drama, just like the books did.

Don't worry! I'm sure "Ewok Movie 3: 'Lil Rogue Squadron" will be on the horizon soon. Along with Wicket and/or his decendants depending on Ewok life span.

BalugaJoe: Where is Lando?



He was in Glee last week..... it's clear he's not in a state to be in it. He's aged in a senile geriatric way, not in a Christopher Lee type way.
 
2014-05-13 06:13:16 AM
....Kind of a shame - Wedge is the ONLY character to have shown up in all three movies without having been tortured, beaten, having something amputated, or killed.

/And yes, I WOULD like to know why Billy Dee ain't gonna be there
 
2014-05-13 06:19:25 AM
I'm just gonna run out and miss this crap.

JJ Abrams is a psychological pervert.
 
2014-05-13 06:30:32 AM
Wedge was cool because he was a biatcharacter.  He was that normal-but-remarkable guy that was there the whole time but out of the spotlight.  Normal because he wasn't born with the Force or stumble into the Princess on his way to fame; remarkable because of how far he went in a setting stacked against mundane humans.  But he also did his farking job and (as I imagined it) went home.

The more you try to make him into somebody he's not, the more he loses his charm.  No, for the love of god, don't rape the story of Wedge on top of all the egregious offenses from the prequels.

taurusowner: This movie appears to be riding the "It's gotta be good! Look at all the classic characters we have brought back!" horse pretty hard.

Exhibit A in that the upcoming movie is short of good ideas.  The last time I saw such a concerted effort to bring back reprisals was Star Trek: Generations.

"Again, it's like poetry, it's sort of, they rhyme. . . hopefully it'll work."
