Yeah, this is pretty getting old, what with trying to bring back something from the past and rebooting/filming it, but like almost any idea I think of, it is dumb and doesn’t die easily. I like ToTJ since it tells such an interesting story with Jedi lore and ancient Jedi characters, like Nomi Sunrider (who’s my favorite), Exar Kun, etc. So, how would you retell ToTJ as a film (this includes characters-cast, if you want-production, directors, etc)?
I’d have ToTJ films be a trilogy (“The Nadd Uprising,” “Dark Lords of the Sith,” and “The Sith War”), with Nomi Sunrider as the main character, since she’s the one the audience would more likely relate to (NO political agenda in this, swear it). She’d be the young widow taken into the Jedi and taught their ways, while getting to know Ulic, the dashing hero, and his bro, Cay, the quiet Jedi techie. Exar Kun fills the Vader role (of course) as the fallen Jedi who’s looking for Sith knowledge and is consumed by it, turning himself into the Dark Lord of the Sith.
As for casting, direction, or production, I have no idea. It would be difficult to recreate some of the scenes from the comics, but if Kenneth Branagh could get Asgard in Thor, then I guess anything’s possible.
