OHHH MY ******G GOD.

WOW..
post #62 of 1951

sorry but i am not stoked for this at all disney is just going to run the star wars name into the ground just like it has done with the marvel name look at the avengers it could have been so much better of a movie with 10 minutes less action and 10 minutes more story telling.

 

the new iron man 3 trailer looks like a straight dark knight rises rip-off i realise disney has so much source material to work with within the star wars universe but i think its time to stop tarnishing a film franchise and just let it stay classic.

 

soon disney is just going to put out sequels to movies much like the call of duty franchise but with dudes just thirsting over the next sequel because its a sequel to the last.

Lucas is one of the greatest directors ever simply due to the fact that he  wrote and directed the GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE - star wars episode 4: a new hope.




which book exactly?



dont worry, be happy.  disney has some amazing talent at their disposa (writers/composers etc), they are going to do this series justice i can just about guarantee it......im beyond geeked this is incredible.  

greatest of all time? Sit down, kay. The only film tht was solid through and through was Empire. ANH was ok, but Jedi was bad. The prequels werent bad, but they suffered from horrible casting and script choices. And I def agree. Cut out jar jar, and recast both anakins and the trilogy is great.

Lucas cant write dialogue. It isnt his strong suit. He needs to stick to consulting on the characters and world.

sit down? cant write dialogue?.....oh boy this'll be good.........

I was referring to the first book of the Thrawn trilogy : Heir to the Empire that picks up 5 years after Return of the Jedi.

George Lucas gets far more hate than he deserves.

 

Yeah, the prequels could've been better but I'm losing sleep over that.

The haters are always just more vocal when it comes to anything they dont like. And I've always respected George in that, for good or bad, he's always stuck to HIS vision.

But on a brighter note, my body is so open for the summer of 2013. Avengers 2 AND Episode VII? Life ain't so bad now.

How does it look like a dark knight rip off .In Iron Mans comics he lost control of his suits multiple times to the Mandarin hell he lost his empire before in a brutal takeover.

The hate for Lucas isn't just about the quality of the prequels, but how he's handled the original trilogy and all his special editions, DVDs, changes, etc. He seemed to be tragically out of touch with his fans for years, and that's largely what people were angry about.

My hate for Lucas was him blocking further Star Wars films all these years and then his handling of the prequels. We should already have been on like picture 10 or something. But today, I am so very thankful for him passing control over and allowing this franchise to flourish and show the rest of the world what other stories are out there.

Does this mean that the original unaltered Star Wars might get a release on blu ray?
post #80 of 1951
Good news! I'm eager to see the next trilogy.

Not to derail the thread with wild speculation on a tangent, but if Disney makes enough money from this deal over the next 10 years, can't you see them making the ultimate power move and scooping up DC Comics? Imagine that...

Considering that Warner Bros. owns DC, no.

Read the books. Heir to the Empire. Start right there. Then call me back. You'll be interested IMMEDIATELY.
I'm not saying there isn't good material. I'm talking about it being translated in to film. In the general sense, the story of the last 3 wasn't bad since if you told anyone that it'd be about how Darth Vader became Darth Vader everyone would be interested but the acting was bad, dialogue was bleh, pacing, it had Jar Jar Binks in it, etc.

Not being pessimistic about Disney and how they'd handle it but right now I'm not interested in the prospect of more SW films and more interested in some more Indy flicks.

I still have not seen a star wars movie.

Lucas did all that Jar Jar stuff for the kids, and he wrote a lot of that crap. The books don't have that fluff, they are deep, tactical, fully thought out, fleshed out, they are incredible and would easily translate. It "could" be dark, and mysterious and fresh compared to what Lucas did. Actual writers can work these movies without his stupid kid friendly throw ins.

Xtap, too soon on the unaltered Blu Rays, sure we"'ll hear more soon enough. Star Wars has a monthly magazine that I know will be full of info in late November.

^ Not necessarily. I don't know what the internal ownership structure is within LucasFilm, but I doubt Lucas owns a 100% stake in the company.  

 

Anyway...

So much for Episode VII coming from the expanded-universe?

Wow, Disney will profit big from this deal.
But more Star Wars movies? I think it should've been finished after the first 3 back in the day...
