(a comprehensive list of ideas that defined SW before the prequels came along)


I agree with all of this.


Someone should take these facts and make three movies out of them.

Well, a friend of mine is planning to completely rewrite the prequels from scratch in novelized form, creating a completely new story that refers only to older material.  Will that do?  ;)

The idea is to complete the "trilogy of trilogies", with the original unaltered films being episodes four, five and six; the Thrawn books by Timothy Zahn as episodes seven, eight, and nine; and these being one, two, and three and written in a manner completely consistent with them.  I've been collaborating with him on his writing for nearly a year now, and I have complete confidence that he'll be able to pull this off—he's a very talented storyteller, and he shares my enthusiasm for oldschool Star Wars as well.

Now it's going to be a while before it's ready, as he's in the middle of another project and the prequel rewrite only exists in a general outline of ideas so far, but I can surely promise that it's going to be great.  :)

That sounds great :-) I had an idea like that myself but I don't have the patience.

You know of the rebellion against the Empire?

Anybody remember the essential guides back in the 90s? It was a shame that they had to revise those to fit with the prequels.

^ Oh man I remember those. I never owned one of the books but loved going to bookstores to peruse them.

Steve Sansweet also had a huge encyclopedia that, before the PT, was the holy grail of SW information.

I worked at a large entertainment store with movies, books, games, etc., and during breaks I would sneak into the back of the store with the SW encyclopedia and "study".

The stuff before the PT, sorry to say it, was so much better than it is now. Another sad casualty of the prequels, that they were forced to write the SW universe from scratch to fit with inferior movies. And all of this could have been corrected by GL actually reading what happened in the OT first!

That was funny. I nearly lost it when during the TIEs.

LOL at when she gets hit in the right eye.

No wonder it took so long for the Rebels to destroy the Death Star - they were drunk!

Just wanted to point out to everyone...  Darth Vader does not like sand.

Galatians 2: 20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Hey Frink, When you get to the Ridiculous of the Sith you should have Vader's first words... "I hate sand"... Can you say EPIC!!!
