To me this whole this whole thing is wonderful news! The aesthetics appeal to me, and I frankly don't mind the CGI at all. I was disappointed to hear about TCW being discontinued, and I still wish it had wrapped up a little better, but this is tremendously exciting news. Of course there will be Jedi and Sith, which doesn't bother me but will bug some, as Vader's extermination of remaining Jedi will likely be an important aspect of the story. But really, this is good news, and I too hope they chuck much of the EU out the window.
Hey, it's me. said:
Yeah in a perfect world it would be hand drawn. But, more than likely it'll be CG. And considering the era between III and IV were 'dark times' hopefully the series will follow ths tone. Nothing cutesy and fluffy please. One of many thoughts that spring to mind is wether we'll see the transition of the 'Clone Troopers' to the conscripted 'Storm Troopers' of the OT?
Good question, and one I too hope they answer. Clearly the stormtroopers of the OT are not the Aussie clones of the PT.
The ROTJ collaborative thread is a wealth of ideas, both on how to edit Return of the Jedi, as well as how to collaborate in an edit.
