I don't know if anything new can taint the originals for me. I love the originals.. they are still head and shoulders above anything else Star Wars for me.

However, the original 3 didn't cover EVERYTHING and there has always been room for more stories to be told in the Star Wars universe IMO. I think that there have been some great new additions to the Star Wars universe lore.. be it comics, cartoons, video games, or even some of the new trilogy.

I don't love all of it though.. for example, I loved the original Clone Wars series.. you know, the one that was made up of a bunch of short episodes with the ultra crazy Samurai Jack style. Those were awesome. The new Clone Wars series starring Anakin and Asohka is just alright for the most part. I have tried to watch it, but it doesn't draw me in like other SW stuff does.


the new trilogy didn't exactly reflect the originals as much as I hoped it would. But they are certainly enjoyable and I am glad that they were made. They did get better and better as they went on. I just think that for the most part Anakin was played badly.

I've enjoyed the prequels. I still do. I feel as if they're not as bad as most jaded fans like to make them out to be. They're not perfect however...I have my own nit-picks concerning them, but the original films weren't perfect either.

I'm excited about the coming sequels, and perhaps the stand-alone films, I won't deny it. But sometimes I worry the mythos as a whole may become a little cheapened or watered-down, if they don't handle it right. I guess I won't know for sure until I see the end-product. It may even make me sick of Star Wars, if that's even possible. (lol)

This article is interesting in that he thinks Disney is going to follow the Marvel Studios model with every new "Episode"=Avengers and all the stand alone character movies=Iron Man, Thor, Cap America, etc. and then gives Disney credit for "trying something new".

Ummmmm.....I think the FIRST person to do something gets the credit for the "new" idea, right? And when the second person sees that idea makes money and does the same thing, I believe they call that a "copy". But oh well....

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.


not just the lemmings...I would love to wear an OT shirt every now and then without the common folk thinking "oh...one of THEM." It's a bit hard to express a singular part of something that has ballooned this big. Too many weeds in the flowerbed. How do you wear "your" Star Wars on your sleeve and make it clear what it means? Its pretty much impossible at this point without getting lumped into the "all" or "nothing" groups.

Really? You care what someone thinks of your shirt?

You and YoJoe are talking as though you guys are the only kind of "fans" that matter, but you have to understand that there are millions of SW fans out there. From all ages, some not even born yet, but could become fans when they are and grow up and thats what these movies are about. Keeping Star Wars alive for years to come.

If you're happy with the original trilogy and dont want to continue and read the hundreds of books and comics, videogames, etc... then fine, be happy with those and pretend the other movies dont exists, its that simple.

Just dont harp on people for wanting or enjoying something that you don't. Like someone said above, there's ton of story in the SW universe that is out there and infinite amount of stories yet to be told. Let people enjoy those and be happy with your betamax originals.

No, you misunderstand. I'm fine with anyone liking any SW they want.

Maybe it was my "lemmings" comment and I'm sorry if that was taken the wrong way. Maybe I could have said that better. I guess what I meant there was this franchise is going to grow and it's going to grow HUGE. That's going to make it harder for the "any SW is good SW" crowd to keep that mindset. You could be the most hard-core Spider-Man fan around, but even they would have a hard time saying "Any Spider-Man story is a good Spider-Man story" because there's just been soooooooooo much over the years. SW is going down that same path.

For me, the best SW story has been told and I'm at peace. But, certainly others can like and be excited for whatever they want. I am interested to see what Episode VII has in store....

Feat, if you have a SW T-shirt that you like, just wear it, man. Just wear it :)

You tried to form a decent argument, and then went ahead and capped it off with an insult. How is what youre saying different than what Joe and I are saying?

enjoy the swim...

I wear it around the house, daily chores and relaxation...but im not taking it out any more to be lumped together with podraces and double lightsabers, and to have every Joe Average strike up a conversation with "Ya like Star Wars? Ya'know they're making a new one?" Ive gone thru the latter too much with Ghostbusters shirts and the on-again-off-again third rumors. Im not faulting anyone for being friendly, but again...it takes a lot of energy to explain diverging fandom to a grocery bagger in under 2 minutes

no, it was a civil way of saying what you really meant in accordance with the rules of this forum. I know several harsh negatives that would have fit the blank, but I try to follow the rules as well and enjoy posting in here from time to time. Good for you for trying to spare fragile feelings. You say the wrong thing and lemmings morph into a hornet's nest.

Funny, I thought SW was big enough now that you don't have to be afraid to wear it in public. I wear my SW shirts to the store, wear them to pick my son up from school. I even call my son "Obi" instead of his real name, in front of strangers, at school, at work, even my coworkers and family and friends call him Obi, we don't live in 1990 anymore where it was considered nerdy to like SW.. that's what the prequels helped do, they brought it back into the mainstream again, same with the CW show, not once in recent years have I had someone scoff at me and say "you're one of them" maybe it's something else about you that might be getting this reaction, cause I highly doubt it's the shirt.

I also feel that its someone's attitude and how they let it affect them and respond to things. I consider myself a geeky person, I have a big nose, I have black geeky framed glasses(that I've had for over 10 years, not just recently because BigBagTheory made them popular again), I wear my geeky shirts, have my Chewbacca messenger bag, carting around my son calling him Obi, jumping into my car with the R2 cookie bowl in the hatchback window, with my "You got the touch", GI Joe, Serenity, duel of the fates and R2D2 ringtones and text message notices on my phone, but I don't let that bother me and if someone sees me as a geek, let them, because I see no difference in me wearing my SW track jacket and Boba Fett beanie outside than the jock down the street wearing his underarmor shirt and track jacket with his nike shoes and track pants.



Anyway, we're getting off subject...

Joe, if you're like me my friend, you just get to a point where you simply don't care what other people think. I have my own personal, sentimental reasons why I like something, just like the critics also have their reasons why they don't. I think the thing is to have respect for others with differing opinions, to debate reasonably and objectively without the snarky, self-important adult variations of the classic Kindergarten-playground mentality: "What you like is stupid, so YOU'RE stupid!!" It gets old and tiresome really fast.

"The discussed ending of the film that Kurtz favored presented the rebel forces in tatters, Leia grappling with her new duties as queen and Luke walking off alone “like Clint Eastwood in the spaghetti westerns,” as Kurtz put it. "We had an outline and George changed everything in it,” Kurtz said. “Instead of bittersweet and poignant he wanted a euphoric ending with everybody happy"

man, that would have been sweet...and a better set-up for future installments than whatever contrived reasons we will get.

Very interesting article.

It's always good to hear an insider straight up admit something like this: "By that time there were really big toy sales and that was a reason.” I'm not just talking about with SW here, but ALL the countless big franchise movies that followed. ROTJ was a trail blazer, I guess.

I'm not going to start harping on ROTJ because I've always liked it and I still do. Even with Death Star II and Ewoks and Han living happily ever after.

Maybe with Lucas out and Kurtz back in, they can remake ROTJ the way he wanted it. Only instead of--what, a couple of months?--elapsing between ESB and ROTJ, make it 30 years. Luke and Leia could theoretically have spent that much time tracking down Jabba (of course by this time the slave bikini will not be as memorable). Then they can go with the ending they wanted and the Han death that everyone (but me) seemed to want.

Or not...

I didnt intend it to harp on Return of the Jedi, more on the handling of the jedi in general...Luke walking off alone “like Clint Eastwood in the spaghetti westerns.” - This is how jedi should always have been depicted...that time has passed and theres nothing we can do about it, but this is how jedi in the new films could, nay, should be depicted.

yeah, Kurtz's plan sounds better. I like ROTJ, but it does have its flaws. And Empire is hands down the best of the StarWars movies.

Man.. if we could have gotten a ROTJ that was like EMPIRE... that would have been epic.

Made four or five movies in the 90's (along with a producer credit on Good Will Hunting) and four or five from 2000 to 2010. Along with writing other movies and comics, the guy had a lot of "Geek Cred".

Samuel L Jackson thinks Mace Windu should still be alive:

http://omg.yahoo.com...-194104516.html

I think the most interesting part of this is the last bit where Jackson believes old characters should show up, saying "[You] can't just create a whole new audience out of nowhere". Actually, I think it may be better to show some creativity and come up with new, interesting characters instead of using the crutch of old favorites to sell your movie. Of course, Hollywood today is anything BUT "creative", "new", or "interesting" so maybe Sam L is right, you really CAN'T do it.

As for Mace:

He's dead.
