I'm hearing a rumor about how Disney wants to redo the original movies.

It seems that great care was always taken to ensure that most if not all of the films maintained a consistent look. I like consistency.


Have to disagree there. Between the originals and the prequils, I don't see much consistency at all in terms of looks. The originals looked real, authentic. The prequils-thanks to the crutch of CGI in every single scene-- looked polished, sterile, and artificial.

I think Abrams will do fine. If anything, I would imagine that if it were up to him, you'd see very little reference to the prequils. A plus in my book.

Before the Disney buy I was actually betting on this happening. With the complete lack of original ideas in Hollywood, I don't think this idea will ever be completely off the table.

No no...I meant in terms of cinematography; the lighting, camera angles, that sort of thing. Like many have mentioned before, J.J. Abrams is fond of lens flares and hyper-action. I'm not so sure I wanna see that in a Star Wars movie. Just like if James Cameron were to direct, there might be alot of bright-blue lighting in the background...and lots of water. (lol) Ridley Scott's movies have a certain look too, as do many other directors.

I guess what I'm saying is there weren't any earmarks of any given director's so-called "look" on any of the Star Wars films that one could point out or recognize. That's what I'm afraid of, that any new Star Wars films will be stylized.

Well at least it isn't a remake of the origional in the rumors I had heard about before Lucas sold it to Disney

I was thinking that after he died whomever took over for him would have "A New Hope" remade

I'm fine with whatever, but I just did have one thought. I'm gonna miss the beginning credits. It was just the 20th century fox and the Lucasfilm logo then the SW theme and scroll into the movie. Now we're going to get some lame Disney Castle fit in (because Disney has done special versions of the Disney Castle for different movies and I can't see them not doing one for SW), then the Bad Robot logo, then the Lucasfilms logo and possibly some other logo's depending on who gets brought on between now and then.

Even with flairs, if the movie's good, everyone will be happy.

Sorry, the're playing it safe. There is nothing to convince me that this could be anything more than mediocre at best. (hey, like Star Trek)

LOL, that's because we don't know anything about this movie yet. Period.

Actually, I take that back, we know a couple of things. We know the people behind the prequils (George and all his Yes-Men) are out. We know the franchise is owned by a company that by and large produces quality product. We know the big 3 actors and a writer from ESB (arguably the best SW) are all on board. We know a successful director is doing it (I obviously don't expect everyone to agree, by I personally gave the Star Trek reboot an "A").

Hey, I have my pessimistic side too. Personally, I don't NEED to see another Star Wars. I'd be happy with the memory or the original three. I think Luke, Han, and Leia's story has been told and it will take a damn fine story to convince me otherwise, I hope I get proven wrong. But more movies are coming whether I like it or not and all of the above just look like good first steps to me. They're not predestined to suck.

no one said that. I said mediocre is the best you can hope for.

if George Lucas' prequels are the ultimate low, and we all take SW 1977 as the high...

Why is '77 star wars the High. I liked ROTJ the best...the point is we really dont know anything. I wasnt a big fan of JJ Abrams Star trek b/c it didnt relate to the other movies ie alternate reality.

I would hope if they're calling it ep7 then it will continue with some familiar characters (even if played by different actors). If it was going to be entirely new with no relation to previous movie, then they should call it Star Wars: "new title" insert not Ep 7.

i guess we should all wait a year till good info starts coming out.

you cant argue with initial success and all the breakthroughs(artistic, technological, problematic) made to get it to the screen. And structuraly, A New Hope is a solid stand-alone film without having to remind us of its place in a larger, multifilm story arch. (Remember those days? when Hollywood didnt automatically sell things as a trilogies? A sarcastic 'thank you' to the Star Wars business model.)

Im only saying this in trying to dissect the film critic from the fan in me. I mean, Temple of Doom is my favorite Indy film, but I wont and cant argue that its a better film than Raiders.

Exactly, when you look at all the setbacks and struggles George went through to get the original star wars made it's hard not to think of it as the standard, heck it even makes me appreciate Geoge Lucas as a filmmaker and that's not an easy task considering the star wars saga as a whole. You also bring a valid point in the better film/favorite film argument, for example my favorite SW movie will always be ROTJ, ever since I was a kid are ANH and ESB better films? yes but it's still my personal favorite even though the Emperor's "best troops" got beaten by a bunch of killer teddy bears.

JJ doing starwars sounds pretty good just as long as there's no cloverfield style camera work :P

William Shatner calls Abrams a pig for directing two movies.

http://www.giantfrea...-star-trek.html

What do you think? Personally, I think it's just Shat's humor and he's not really serious.

(Wouldn't it be great if I had a Star TREK forum to post this in?)

You're right guys...and even if you aren't: hey, it's Star Wars!

See you at the midnight show for the Darth Maul spin-off?

Star Wars is about to enter a new reality, I think. For a long time they were just three good movies that we all looked back on fondly. Remembering how great they were to watch as kids, and still great to watch now. They were very contained; three good movies, that's it.

For me, the desire for Star Wars to be more than those three movies had been minimal at best. I have no strong desire to watch Clone Wars or any other SW cartoon, no desire to read any of the novels or comics. The only thing I really need SW to be are those three movies from back in the day. But I know that's all going to change soon. Drastically.

Now we're talking one movie per year. Which, of course, translates into one marketing blitz per year. And I honestly think my need to see all these movies every year will be about as strong as my need to read all the comics and novels. What Star Wars IS, to me, has already been done and really can't be taken away whether these movies are good or bad (at one per year, were gonna get a lot of both). The original movies were special and always will be. Were not going to be able to say the same for the new stuff. But it is what it is and I can live with it. Even if every SW sucks from here on out, really it will all be OK because we've already gotten the best.

I feel the same way, for the most part, about the originals. But the new taints it more and more for me as time goes on. I cant stomach the "all SW is good SW" fans and their shunning of those who don't subscribe. The lightsaber drooling fantards turned me into a "used to like" SW fan. I cant help but try and talk sense to them about their blind love. Feels like im stuck in an eternally running Apple Jacks commercial (get it?). is a lil caution to the wind, a curb of the enthusiasm, too much to ask?

I was going to use that word "taint" but I forgot :) See, for me the originals really aren't tainted at all. We've arguably already got the worst we're going to get (Phantom Menace) and it doesn't affect my enjoyment. I put my blinders on when watching the OT, I don't think of them as being "attached" to other inferior movies, even though they technically are....it's actually really easy for me.

Yeah, there will always be lemmings who will think ANY SW is good SW, but that's their deal. I'm not gonna change their minds. I think those people are more interested in Star Wars the FRANCHISE. I'm interested in Star Wars the STORY. And really, at the heart of it, it's ONE story; farm boy meets his destiny. That story was told, told well, and can't be undone by any movie/merchandising blitz coming in the next 6 years.
