Literally one of the first things Disney said upon acquiring Lucasfilm just over five years ago was that the Star Wars universe has “over 25,000 years of history.”

This would only lend more credence to someone’s theory upthread about Rian’s trilogy being about the origins of the Jedi, which is pretty much exactly what I’ve been wanting them to do.

Everything must be explained. Nothing can be left up to the individual’s imagination. And it’s all canon, CANON, CANON.

If this trilogy has anything to do with the origins of the Jedi/Sith, I’m out. I’m sick of this crap.

good…dont let the door hit you on your way out 😃

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy

episode X should be a more original version of legacy…set 70-150 years after the ST in a galaxy where the galaxy is being split between 2 oppressive superpowers.

the “jedi” theocracy known as the galactic alliance…where jedi use their wealth from kyber crystals(the lifeblood of the galactic economy because of their cheap energy) and stock markets to buy elections and force their theocratic agenda down the citizens throats. these jedi are more or less masters of both light and dark sides of the force and view the sith jedi divide as primitive. believing that their rule brigs about the greater good.

and the fel imperium…which is less anti-alien and oppressive than the empire yet no less questionable.

main character should be a small miner from the mining world of apatros…his daughter is kidnapped by the galactic alliance and he must overcome his neurotic personality to get his daughteer back as he is dragged into the cold war between the fel imperium and the galactic alliance.

Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)

people here do not know jack shit about business…this is not even close to a legal monopoly. They wont own a majority share of the market because universal and warners along with others wont let them.

they will never buy DC comics or warner bros or universal or even the inevitable newcomers

Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread

For me, that’s one of the best Rogue One fan-made pieces I’ve seen yet. I don’t mean fan-made as a knock, by the way. I just don’t know how else to quantify the artwork of someone who doesn’t work for Disney directly or who’s work isn’t an official one-sheet. There are some craaazy talented artists out there.

And Hollywood ignores them all.

Because most people in Hollywood

Don’t trust outside artist who are not part of the marketing company(even drew was a veteran before coming into lucasfilm).

Are largely unaware of these people’s talents

Or don’t see how posters have a effect on the box office.

You become Lucas' advisor post-1999

-It’s okay to give Yoda and Palpatine lightsabers, but they should only be used when fighting other lightsaber wielders, not each other.

I don’t really see Palpatine humoring any low-level Jedi with a lightsaber duel. Why would he bother with that?

Nostalgia for a older age when jedi and sith were in great numbers and he was a young strong man (really actually scrawny). Reveal palpatine is actually a lot older than he looks and combine his character with the “supreme intellect” as described by the director of return of the jedi

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

The safe-route Disney is traveling with these safe, established characters deeply worry and disappoint me. This franchise has become Marvel and Hollywood in a nutshell, and everyone swallows it whole. Despite Lucas’s way too firm and naive grasp on the prequels and its scripts, he had originality, and he took hell of a lot of chances with them. Not to mention the OT.

This Marvel Formula to Star Wars is predictable, redundant and unoriginal. The Marvel formula - to m, and the eight or so Marvel movies I’ve seen - is simply a joke every three minutes, no plot twist that will greatly endanger people’s expected expectations for the movie or their perception of it, characters that are half-developed or completely one-dimensional and/or predictable with the sole purpose to give- or complete a plot point, and - if expected by audience - kill a minor or now rather unimportant character at the end of the movie to give the audience the feel of consequence and stake, rather than set it up during the movie’s runtime.

And then people will say: but Rogue One killed all of its main characters! And TFA killed Han Solo! Well, Rogue One’s characters had little to no depth, the main character herself was never much of a main character - always being told what to do rather than to take action herself (watch the Rogue One Analysis video on YouTube) and a dragged out storyline that only picks up the last 20 minutes or so. The only character I cared about, and especially felt for upon his death, was the K2 droid.

And Han Solo’s sole purpose was to be the father of Kylo Ren and thereafter die to leave the characters with some emotional weight. However, this did of course work brilliantly - due to the already established character of Han Solo and Leia.

I hate to be the negative voice to anticipated movies, but I’m entitled to my honest opinion. I think the movies - so far, have been safe, at times boring, depthless, and incredibly predictable. I hope this changes around upon the release of TLJ and this Han Solo movie. I really hope this trend will stop. Don’t do what’s done before right - do what’s done before different!

Ragnorok is more compelling than anything George Lucas worked on since 1989…so if you don’t like it than it is probably good
