Thankfully we can probably scrap whatever Lucas said.

Star Wars is a amazing film and how it has crossed generations. I am not a big fan of it in the sense I have collectables and what nots but I do enjoy the films.

What amazes me is my 4.5 year old son loves Darth Vader; he stumbled across DV at a store or something. I never introduced him to DV or the movies yet a film nearly as old as me was able to peak the interest of a 4.5 year old. He will be dressed up as DV tonight for Halloween.

I can also remember going to the Star Wars The New Hope in Vienna, Va with my dad and having the hair raise up on the back of my neck when DV walked by for the first time in the film.

I have seen ever film on it's first run in the theater.

So any word on what this star wars is supposed to be about? Is it going to be in between the 2 series or take place after? Any idea who the characters and villain will be?

It will pick up where Jedi left off... episode VII

I don't think it's a huge deal and the movie will probably do just fine.

Comic book enthusiasts nearly shat a brick when Disney bought out Marvel and look how well that's worked out.

can't remember if the conflict is between actual sith, or another group of badasses who are skilled in the force. it's about cleaning up the mess of the galaxy after the war, probably plenty of political hogwash. new laws, order, etc.

[quote=Mattyk;959253]The last trilogy was pretty bad, Star Wars is in desperate need of a quality re-boot.

Looking forward to seeing where they go with the next 3. In the right hands a new trilogy could be pretty cool.[/quote]

I concur that the episodes 1-3 were poorly done. The problem IMO was when Lucas took it upon himself to write, direct, and produce all the movies. He simply tried to wear too many masks to be able to create a good movie. Most of his originals were directed by other people, while he was the driving force behind the lore and story. I wished he had done this instead of being such a control freak.


As far as a reboot? **** that. Star Wars should never be rebooted, now I'm in favor of continuing the franchise or story in that universe.

Reboot/remake whatever you call it, I think it's safe to say the new films will have a different feel than the Lucas ones, that's all.

I wouldn't even mind a more grown up/grittier direction.

Sort of along the lines of Christopher Nolan taking over the Batman films.

there is still plenty of room for light-hearted comedy within a mature movie.

It would be sick if they brought back Darth Maul...somehow. I dunno maybe it can be like his grandson or something.

I know Maul was one of the few bright spots from 1-3 and the kill him off right away. Sucks. I was thinking last week before all of this they should just make a movie based on Darth Maul and how he came to be.

I heard that Darth Maul was the illegitimate child of the Emperor and Aunt Beru's mother, who was actually a queen during the time of the old empire. Beru married Owen as a means to get closer to the rebellion, spy on them, etc. knowing that Owen was Anakin's stepbrother and likely to become involved at some point. Then Luke shows up as her adopted son, but after Maul was killed.

But there may have been another illegitimate sibling, possibly a twin girl, that Beru was unaware of. One with a spikey head and bad complexion. Which leads to Darth Martha, the female equivalent of Darth Maul. She could be in episode 7, avenging the death of Maul and Beru.

The double light saber was totally badass, the only thing that saved episode 1 was that final battle with Maul, Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon.
