Disney have announced that they've bought Lucasfilm - and already confirmed episode 7 for 2015....

Does this mean no more tinkering from Georgie?

Star Wars Episode 7?

This doesn't bode well for Star Wars fan film makers. I know two dudes who have made fan films, one currently making one right now and they are a bit worried.....

But this is Disney we're talking about. It's not like they're the sort of huge corporate behemoth who would unleash the lawyers at the slightest hint of....

Ah, right. It's Disney...

Exactly. Lucasfilm were great and let fans make films using Star wars characters,Lucas even encouraged it. Disney may not be so forgiving.

Problem is, where can you take the Star Wars franchise now that it's all been pretty much wrapped up? Disney only bought Lucasfilm because they want a piece of that Star Wars pie.

I know there's the cartoon series, but that stuff is just pointless waffle.

Yes, that makes perfect sense. Let's not do any more Terminator or Alien films because the third and fourth are shit.

Star Wars is a gigantic universe. You could make 100 films and still have room left for more stories to be told.

The Clone Wars series is actually very good and hints at the potential this franchise has for epic sci fi.

About Star Wars, not that you don't mind, obviously. Disney want to make more money, they are a business after all, and there are fans who do want to see more films so good for them. As a non-Star Wars fan, it doesn't bother me either way

Same with Terminator and Alien.

And just in case you mistakenly think I am trying to antagonise you, I couldn't agree more with the part in bold.

No, it won't be shit. That's a great director/writer/cast combination for this reboot. Whedon doesn't let people down.

You've made it clear you're against the idea of remakes. Me, I'm happy for every notable film ever to be remade. Why? Because it could be good, or it could be bad (as with any film). Either way, the original won't cease existing.


Ocean's 11, Dawn of the Dead, True Grit, 12 Monkeys, Funny Games, Scarface, 3:10 to Yuma, The Magnificent Seven, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Solaris, The Ring, The Fly, Cape Fear, The Departed, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Let Me In, Insomnia,

All of the above remakes are just as good if not better than their originals.

Don't everyone get too excited about Lucas NOT directing - let us not forget that in the (very) early stages of pre-production of the prequels, Lucas said he would only serve as producer. Fast forward a few years and the fucker not only produced, but also wrote and directed...

I don't mind the thought of more SW films, especially if George isn't directing them. I'd rather see something like a KotOR-era film than a continuation from the originals though (even though Thrawn could be kinda cool). And a remake is an awful idea

Star Wars Episode VII, if it gets made, will be about the adventures of Luke's adorable kid as he becomes a Jedi. He will be aided by CGI that shouts a lot. All the characters we love will be conspicuously absent, apart from C-3PO and R2-D2 because they're in everything.

Calling it now.

Not sure how any fan of science fiction could say this. Terminator, Alien and Star Wars have such huge universes and ideas to explore. We've barely scratched the surface of their potential.
What if the next Star Wars film turns out to be a masterpiece?

My point still stands, sorry. It's no Buffy/Angel/Firefly (what is?) but it's still a damn fine piece of sci fi TV.

Yeeeeah it kinda would be shit - some flicks need to be left the fuck alone - Godfather, The Shining, Taxi Driver and Star Wars all being part of that list of flicks.

But lets say hypothetically they did remake the series, Zack bleeding Effron as Luke Skywalker?

We don't know in what form this so-called "reboot" will be. Who says it's going to be a remake anyway?

All this proves is that you have an opinion. In no way does it validate your shit re-make ideas.

Yeah that Godfather sequel was gash, wasn't it?

I'm up for this. Episodes VII-IX without Lucas's shitty dialogue could be immense.
