DIsney buys Lucasfilm- announces NEW STAR WARS FILM!
« on: October 30, 2012, 08:59:39 PM »
No joke!

I am absurdly excited. Disney owns Marvel and has access to Pixar and Joss Whedon. This COULD be awesome. It could also be not-awesome.

Raise your deflector shields, front and centre. I'm going in.

Oh... my... god  :shock:

Like you say, Andy... it could be good but it could also be terrible  :blub:

...Mind you, with all the updates and specials and editor's cuts maybe it can't really get any worse?

Have you watched any diz movies in the las 20 years.  A muical number every ten minutes will kill any star wars movie. 

Hopefully they do some good with it.  We shall see won't we.

That may be the traditional template...  But quite frankly it shows that you have not watched a Disney film in 10 years...  (Pixar films count, as does Bad Santa...)

I don't count pixar as being wholly disney;  they're too good.  More like Pixar with disney as a supporting player.  Didn't know about bad santa, but I've never seen it.

I haven't seen any musical numbers in The Avengers, John Carter, Captain America or Thor...and Disney owns that lot.


No good speculating or fretting until 2015. We could all be dead before that though if "The Mayan Prophesy" happens in two months  :nah:

I think it's good news, Disney are not stupid and Star wars is a new product for them.  They understand nostalgia and have some real talent on board.

My vote for new director goes to Whedon, Brad Bird or Edgar Wright.

Also please do another flight sim!

Ironically, the one thing that gives me hope for the project is that Lucas isn't directly involved. Hopefully Chapters 7,8 and 9 will be better than 1, 2 and 3.

It all went sour in 5 and 6 for me.

Fader as Luke's father even seemed contrived to me as a 12 year old.

And teddy bears beating the might of an empire? No. Just no!

Edgar Wright gets my vote too. With Nick Frost as Jedi Master?

If Miss Babs (Celia Imrie) can be a fighter pilot in Episode one, ANYONE can be in Star Wars.

The moment I realised that fighter pilot was Celia Imrie was my favourite of the whole prequel trilogy.
