Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy

I really want to know what it was that LucasFilm saw in Rian Johnson that made them believe he could do this. He has good story ideas, sometimes(they’re kind of hit or miss). But I find his execution style to be all wrong. He’ll come up with an amazing idea, but then play it off a certain way in the film that destroys it. He’s not a great story teller that respects mythology and cultural impact. He’s more of a conventional film maker, with quirks. That’s not enough really to helm a Star Wars trilogy.

Have you even looked at the TLJ box office numbers? Just because you’re didn’t like the movie doesn’t mean his work has no appeal for others.

Interesting find! Padme never returns to Naboo alive in in Episode III, so what could this scene be? Was Padme’s death originally going to be a hoax to help protect Luke and Leia? Maybe someone should ask Natalie Portman about it.

The original ending of ROTS was shot on location during production of Episode II. It was replaced by a green screen shoot during Episode III proper.

GL: “the original ending looks too real compared to the rest of the movie. Let’s reshoot it and make the background a fucking cartoon.”

You’d think he would have shot the baby Luke handoff both ways (Owen and Beru) just to be on the safe side. Hopefully, we get to see this footage someday.

Oh! I didn’t even notice!

I just feel bad for the original baby who lost his moment of fame.
