"Star Wars Fans Petition For George Lucas To Come Back And Direct Episode IX" Discussion

Lucas is done with Star Wars, not only would Disney not hire him, but to come back to Star Wars after (I imagine) working so hard to emotionally deal with leaving would be crazy!

He’d also be trying to work with a story he doesn’t even approve of! So IMO it’s just really wishful thinking…

Yep, I do agree with you on that. I kind feel sad for Mr. Lucas.

"Star Wars Fans Petition For George Lucas To Come Back And Direct Episode IX" Discussion
Time

This Petition was started about two weeks ago by a Brazilian fan who would like to see George Lucas return for the final episode of the Sequel Trilogy. As of now (January 10, 2016) it has over 16,000 supporters.

He states that he doesn’t have a problem with Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) as a director, he just feels that he’s not the right person too direct a Star Wars movie.

Thoughts?

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?
Time

It may not be a film, but I would like a live action T.V. show called “Star Wars Legends” or “The Legends Of Star Wars”. It will basically be about the old Non-Canon EU. Each season will be based on one book or game in the old EU, with the season’s title named after the book or game. Each season contains 10-15, 30 minute, episodes; and could be a show that is on Local Sations (i.e. ABC).

Clearly someone on the staff of The Simpsons owns a time machine.

This is from 2009…

Somewhat off-topic.
It wouldn’t surprise me, because of how many times The Simpsons have already predicted future events.
But they got Star Wars and Alvin And The Chimpmunks showing at the same time lol.

The Force Awakens: Official Review Thread - ** SPOILERS **
Time

My thoughts on the movie:
It was a fantastic thrill ride.
Everyone did great with the material that was given to them.
Kylo Ren is an excellent villain.
Rey finding her Force ability was Awesome.
Finn finding out that he can change, great.
Poe was an enjoyable and likeable character.
Harrison Ford is truly back as a matured Han Solo.
There are many funny moments in this movie, but it’s not dumb funny.
Sure a few things were recycled, but not a reboot of Star Wars.
There were a lot of call back to the originals. Even a few to the prequels, I think?

The only problem I had was that we didn’t get a beather to really take in Han Solos death. I think Edited a little differently would have made it better.

Overall great movie, I plan on going to see it again.

I just saw on the BBC that the Star Wars fan who had little time to live and was able to see a cut of the film has just passed away.

Makes me happy JJ was able to grant his wish.

Just heard this as well and I’m really sorry to hear about his passing, especially so soon. I hadn’t heard if he and his wife had children or not. Being a young widow won’t be easy either way. His passing was very quick since the story last week that he had seen it.

I’m glad they worked it out so he could see TFA early.

I’m so glad this man got to see the film before he passed. I hope he enjoyed it. May he R.I.P.

If this shot is representative of TFA’s overall aesthetic then I’m getting even more hyped than I already am.

Also the more I see Kylo’s lightsaber in action, the more I’m warming up to it. I know it’s technically a gimmick, but I like that it’s something completely different from what we’ve seen before. It just seems so vicious, and I like that, it really does seem like something a bad guy would use, and it’s a bit less elegant than Vader’s saber (so him being a copycat is kind of reflected in his weapon.)

Oh, BTW, did anyone else hear the Wilhelm scream at 1:21?

That Tie Fighter shot, and the sunset with the vaporators are my favorite.

I like the way Kylo’s lightsaber has a fire look to it.

Yes I faintly heard the scream, but it is there.

Indeed: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/149593
The JP trailer looks to be 2.35:1 ratio compared to the US one which seems to be 2.40:1

Sweet, I thought the JP looked less green and more blue, especially in the snow battle scenes.
Thanks.
P.s. Can you please make a screenshotcomparison of the part I posted earlier. Thank you.

Does a list of the original 1st petition signers exist from many years ago?
Time

Fang Zei said:

Ah, the threads that finally get noticed and bumped after a forum migration.

Ten million? Are you sure?

I remember hearing that 80,000 (or was it only 20,000?) signatures figure being tossed about, but maybe that was just over a certain amount of time after the petition’s creation in order to emphasize the response it got. I’d have to go back and watch Jay’s interview in The People vs George Lucas, if it’s still up on Netflix.

It may very well have gotten to ten million by May of 2006. Maybe it even kept growing after that. After all, we never actually got the unaltered trilogy on dvd in actual dvd quality. Although by that point the HD disc formats were out and that was the next frontier.

When was the petition created anyway? 2002?

Jay said:

The petition went live in March 2003. It received ~80,000 signatures if I remember correctly.

Wow I was way off, why was I thinking 10 million. Anyways, that petition did way better then the one that was from 2009 (recently taken down). ~80,000 is a very good number.

The Japanese trailer has some really great shots we haven’t seen yet (and a bunch of new lines as well):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdAUiyeJMFQ&feature=youtu.be

Is it just me or does this trailer have less of Green shift in it then we’ve seen in previous trailers. Take a look at about 1:25 the snow looks a little more blue instead of Green.

Edit: https://youtu.be/sGbxmsDFVnE here is the Official (Football) trailer. Take a look at 1:49 so you can compare.

Yet another trailer. 😉

I seem to recall some old interview where Mark Hamill said that the last SW film would have a weird and 2001-esque ending. So I guess this is appropriate?

(EDIT: Does anyone remember this interview? I tried to google it but couldn’t find anything. Did I just imagine this? This may have been back when Lucas’ was considering making 12 films.)

Maybe it was in a old magazine that has yet to be digitized?

No I’m pretty sure I read it online, and it was only some five-ish years ago, but even then it was a reference to an older interview (I think from the late 80’s or early 90’s).

I seem to remember that being on the 2004 Bonus DVD somewhere (maybe Empire of Dreams), but I could be wrong.
