    It can't be worse than episode 1-3, so I'm looking forward to it. This time it's not about children or teenagers (AFAIK), so there's hope that it might be something for people who grew up with ep. 4-6... like me.

    Any proposals for who's going to play Luke Skywalker?

    I, for one, feel somewhat uncomfortable about this. If Disney screw with the Star Wars genre the way they screwed with the Marvel genre this could get very ugly.

    Y'all are being way too negative about this! Just think of the wonderful cross-genre productions we've already seen:





    Most of you are too young to have seen "The Star Wars Holiday Special" when it first aired:

    Seriously though, they couldn't be worse than Episode 1.

    I have hope now
    Jar Jar Blinks "could actually work" in a Disney cartoon setting.

    From the 1930's to 50's

    It could be fun done right.

    Really

    Boss Nass meets the criteria, too. Now all they need is an Uncle Tom-eesa, an Aunt Jemimah-sen, or maybe a me-Sambo.

    Passing the dead prostitute around for another go, are they? There's always the eye holes, I guess, and the ear canals for the kids.

    Techno, is that picture real or photoshop? If they're not allowed to show the scary danger colours on the light sabres, then I'm betting on worse than ep 1. Place yer bets.

    The books existed before the movies (ep 7-9 might have been written after the first movie, I'm not sure), so one movie per book sounds somehow reasonable. We had 8 Harry Potter movies, one for each book and two for the last one, as well as 3 LotR movies and now another 3 for The Hobbit plus a few extras, so why not another 3 Star Wars movies?

    Besides, there's nothing wrong with making a movie which a lot of people want see. I hope you aren't offended that somebody wants to make money with it.

    Not sure how to answer that. The parts I bolded seem like excess, maybe the point where art dies and the audience feels the material is being abused. I'm all for freedom, but I'm the type of artist that doesn't want more regurgitated Batman/Spiderman movies. While the SW ones will be technically new, I'm sure they will be so formulaic, banal, and mainstream that they may as well not exist, if that makes sense.

    I agree that this is a reasonable opinion in my eyes, but I wouldn't compare it with prostitution. For most people, that would involve giving up one's dignity and I don't think that's necessarily the case here. But of course, there are people who sell their souls for money, just like there are enough people who decide to become prostitutes while having other choices as well.

    doesn't seem worth making a stink over yet, wait until there is actually something of substance to disapprove of IMO

    getting worked up about defiling Star Wars is so 1999
