    Star Wars has already gone "plastic". It used to be an entity that was rock solid and entertaining. Now it's all about cheap merchandise, mediocre movies, and mass advertising crap products (including SWTOR).

     

    They need to start going a tad darker with their films. The original 3 were made for all ages. The newer 3, especially Episode 1, were made for children.

    Well, for the movies, I would say they're all going to be about the death of luke and the children of all the main characters.  George always said his original plans was to make 9 movies, but the final 3 (which happen after the original 3) would take too long, and he was feeling too old to complete all 3 of them.  So that's just what I figure it would be about.

     

    As for the games, I never really like any star wars game, except Kotor 1 and 2.  The rest weren't that great, even force unleashed and SWG.

    I don't care if they scrap the whole of EU.

    Even if they found some of the best ones and based a movie or two on those, it'd still be boring. Because let's face it, it's ultimately stuff we already know, and I'd rather see new stuff in a SW movie.

    Though they do have my permission to base a mini-series on Tales from Jabba's Palace. :P

     

    On another note: The cool thing with Star Wars was that it was mostly one man's vision. Maybe Lucas didn't do a great job with the writing - and this includes Episode IV - but I think people underestimate the soullesness that standard Hollywood mindset can bring.

    Honestly I'd much rather have the worst of the prequels than the best of JJ Abrams.

    tbh, looking at the list of films/projects that JJ Abrams has been involved in, i tend to agree..  will have to wait and see what happens, though im not really all that confident that Disney are the right 'people' for the job, there is still the nightmare that is the clone wars cartoon after all..  more of the same would be nothing short of disastrous.image

    You do realize that George Lucas is the granddaddy of merchandising.  Star Wars was ALWAYS about merchandising.  Star Wars was ALWAYS about being made for children.  It's nothing new.  Most things seem better for people from when they were children.

    I'm so glad they're truly retconning all that and not using any of them. At least, I hope anyway. Hopefully they don't go back on their direction cos man.....fuck the Expanded Universe bullshit.

    AMEN to that, bro, amen to that!

    Set the movies in the KOTOR era. Much more fun.

    Just look at the trailers for SWTOR. I'd watch a full feature movie of those trailers.

    not any more than you would consider The Avengers for children or Tron imho but we will see

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Both Avengers and Tron were pretty childish or rather child-friendly. I really don't see Disneys takeover do much good for the franchise, atleast not like the new Batman and Spiderman movies did. Those were movies for all ages and Disney have never produced anything of that type and quality.

    Avengers was just as much for all the family as spiderman was and more so than batman (far too dark for kids below 8-10 imo, especially the dark knight, with its themes of self mutilation etc)
