Yeah yeah you grubby little cunt, never a truer word spoken though, the further he is away from it the better.

 

 

If I had $4bn burning a hole in my back pocket I'd probably spend it on keeping Star Wars away from George Lucas too.

They need to leave behind Vader, Luke, Leia, Han etc. and move on to another story. Or maybe set in the past, like the Old Republic video games. The story of Vader and co is well and truly over, time for some new material.

 

its a tough one, new characters could ruin it American Pie style (Until the re-union of course) but then obviously the original actors are all far too old now and re-casts would be completely and utterly wank

 

definately one that could go either way this, 3PO and R2 definately need to be kept alive though, and preferably Chewy too

Personally I'd sooner be shot of 3PO. R2 is okay since he can't talk so is unable to utter the absurd lines Lucas conjures up but the beeping bastard was pushing the envelope in terms of irritating viewers in the prequels, what with his newfound flying ability, squirting oil and doing some fucked up force lightening of his own.

So that now gives Disney Marvel,Lucas Film and the Muppets.

 

I can see some real shite cartoon and crossovers coming from this.

Time to face facts. The success of the first three was largely drive by the FX. Star Wars revolutionised cinema and FX. It was that spectacle which dragged people in. Without that the film would have been very average.

 

So it was FX which accounted for the success of Episodes 4,5 & 6.

 

By the time of episodes 1,2 & 3 those FX were far from special and hence devoid of the Emperors new clothes the films were shit.

 

No good can come of this

4 5 & 6 certainly changed cinema and set new incredibly high benchmarks for FX but they had a lot more about them than just that

 

Yeah, they were a REAL epic Adventure... with a compelling storyline, genuinely likable characters, and an easily definable good vs. evil struggle.

I wasn't that impressed with the special FX. The original movies were more groundbreaking and looked better than the silly, cartoony, Babylon-5 type environments in the prequels.

"Lucas said in a statement' date=' "It's now time for me to pass `Star Wars' on to a new generation of filmmakers."

Couldn't agree more. His creative juices dried up years ago but that hasn't stopped the cunt milking the Star Wars universe dry in the meantime. We might finally get something in the Star Wars universe that's great again.

Totally disagree. It was the story and characters; the sheer imagination of it all. The effects were incidental for me. When I think of Star Wars, I want to be Han Solo. I don't think about how cool the effects were.

add in a healthy dose of mythology as well

i was referring to the OT (456). They blew the world away with the fx. The prequels were good as far as fx goes but nothing that changed the world of cinema. Having said that ILM made almost every major advance for years after ep6

Luke Skywalker and Iron Man trying to save a kidnapped Miss Piggy couldn't be any worse than any of the prequals.
