To my recollection that’s never happened in any Star Wars movie, and there’s no such precedent for such a thing happening. Doesn’t feel Star Wars-y to me.
Yes, because who would want to see new, unprecedented things happen in a sequel?
Yeah, but there are certain things that feel like Star Wars and things that don’t. This crosses the don’t line for me.
Didn’t happen but was planned to happen.
Lots of things in the development of a script happen. That doesn’t mean that they’re all good ideas.
It’s the reason Darth Vader has a breathing mask,
You sure about that?
and Anakin’s fall might be very different if the design wasn’t change to fit the story of the first Star Wars (could’ve been a bland grey suit; don’t buy the bullshit that George had everything planned out
because Darth Vader was basically a religious Nazi enforcer in the first Star Wars and nothing more).
Star Wars fans have gotten incredibly close-minded since the prequels.
How have we got ‘close minded?’
I understand why, but man has it gotten old. You’d think after Rebels and the Force Awakens, people would stop craving the same.
Have you checked the TFA review thread?
If Episode 8 was the Empire Strikes Back again, maybe this would change.
I’m not sure what else VIII could be.
I too am glad that the topic has switched from bashing me to on topic.
Wasn’t talking about whether or not ideas during development are all good ideas. That’s in the spirit of Star Wars because it was written for the first Star Wars. You said it wasn’t. Is having a farting baby Hutt good because it happened in a Star Wars movie (the Clone Wars)? Or romantic dialouge about sand?
http://www.starwars.com/news/from-concept-to-screen-bringing-darth-vader-to-life Can’t get any more sure than that. It’s kinda ordered wrong, but it does have a direct statement from Ralph McQuarrie himself, the guy who designed all of Star Wars.
I’m talking a little more specifically about you. You seem to only want copies of what came before in Star Wars and can’t even begin imagining something different.
My idea of Episode 8 included alienation, discrimination, identity confusion, etc. (all things not in ESB) I don’t mean to sound pretentious (I know it’s all in the execution and that ideas are worthless) but it was really there. If only someone cared enough to read them. Why post the rest of it if people can’t critique my work beyond “it sucked, get the hell out of here offtopic ontopic person”?
