Have Jar-Jar be killed...by C-3PO
acting.... REAL acting. It's been a LONG time since we've gotten a Star Wars movie with that in it.
I wanna see Luke die
I'd also like to see Aayla Secura. Oh, I know she's dead but thats cause Lucas threw a temper tantrum and killed her off then said she was DEAD cause he didn't like that ppl wanted her for the TV show. Or something like that. Anyway, the threw a tanturm, that i remember.
Quinlan Vos. If he isn't in the TV show then let's see him in the movie in a significant role, even though he would have to be pretty old.
Admiral Thrawn. Just because they want to do new stories doesn't mean they can't introduce this character.
The rise of a new sith that doesn't follow the rule of two.
I want to see Corellia. It’s strange that we haven't seen it yet. It hasn't even popped up in The Clone Wars. Maybe Lucas was saving it.
Its official, Oscar winner Michael Arndt is to write the screenplay for Episode VII. Yesterday it was also said that he's written treatments for the entire trilogy comprised of Episodes 7, 8 and 9. This is from Star Wars' official site:
The leak from yesterday said that his treatment contains Luke, Leia and Han. So this is basically confirmation that those three characters will appear. My word, I can't believe I'm actually typing this. I'm sure I'm dreaming. By getting this guy, they're already off to a great start.Quote:
As pre-production of Star Wars: Episode VII begins, Lucasfilm has confirmed that award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay for the new Star Wars film. As revealed in the ongoing video series posted here on StarWars.com, Kathleen Kennedy and George Lucas have begun story conferences with Arndt. Arndt won an Academy Award® for Best Original Screenplay for writing Little Miss Sunshine (2006), and was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for writing Toy Story 3 (2010).
For more news about Star Wars: Episode VII -- slated for a 2015 release -- keep checking StarWars.com.
Also, The Hollywood Reporter has reported it and they've interestingly put this little blurb in their article:
I really can't believe this is happening. It seems so surreal in a way. We are actually getting a sequel to ROTJ. How insane is that? :skeek:Quote:
Arndt had written a 40-50 page treatment that will bring the saga of the Skyalkers, the Force-imbued family compised of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader and twins Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa to a close in a new trilogy.
So Spielberg, Tarantino, and Zack Snyder all say they wouldn't want the job. I am not surprised about Spielberg, he has consistently said he felt that franchise belongs to George. I'm not sure if that's his whole reason, but I just don't expect him to change his mind now. Tarantino I cannot for the life of me see being right for Star Wars and he more or less says that in a somewhat rude way to Entertainment Weekly. Zack Snyder kind of surprises me, but he wasn't my top choice either.
What do people think about post-ROTJ EU? I mean, it’s clear that the EU will be hit hard by the new trilogy, especially post-ROTJ EU. I can’t imagine a lot of it coming away unscathed. For example, if all the reports are true and the original characters are indeed returning, that means that Chewbacca will more than likely accompany them. ***Spoiler for EU*** As we all know he dies in the NJO series. That will clearly be undone. They’ve got a good scriptwriter on this, and they will probably pick a good director. I don’t want these talented people to be boxed in by the EU, effectively becoming slaves to it. I want them to be free to spread their wings and not think “Well, I can’t do this because a bunch of books that about 99% of the audience haven’t read forbids it”. That would be madness.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I can really see the EU getting the "reboot" treatment within the next three or four years to accommodate the new films. At least post-ROTJ EU.
Essentially the 'EU' has always been a parallel universe to entertain Star Wars fans that missed having new Star Wars movies to enjoy. It isn't going to be changed or touched when new Star Wars movies come out. Is it possible for book spin-offs of the new movies? Sure, but it won't be the EU.
And, I very much hope Mark Hamil, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford appear in this new trilogy. It could serve as a sequel and book end to the original story and open up new stories for another generation of Skywalkers and Solos.
If they put current Carrie Fisher in her slave leia outfit im gunna throw up.
I'm gonna commit heresy by saying I didn't think the slave Leia outfit flattered her the first time, so no to seeing it again anyway.
And now, here's Moviebob.

I don't know how many of you watched it, but the new Dallas TV series pulled off mixing old characters with a new generation just fine, so I don't see why they can't do the same in a new Star Wars trilogy.
I dont mind having the older characters there. I think it shows them just as they are...old, worn out, ready to pass the torch.
it will be interesting if the Skywalker line ends in the new movie. Not sure how I feel about that. Hmmm.
