As a HP fan the series was dead to me after that came out.

Well I was going to argue that he adapted Rowling's work for stage....but a quick trip to Wikipedia revealed he did in fact write the play based off ideas between him, Rowling, and a third author. That said, if he's there to punch up dialogue and whatnot, I don't feel like he'll be a huge detriment to the film. I mean, he's not rewriting the whole thing in any case. Although given Trevorrow/Connelly were a mixed bag with Jurassic World, I guess I'll just remain on the fence for now.

Star Wars: Episode IX' Gets a New Writer: Jack Thorne

To their credit, Disney aren't showing any signs of panic with regards to Trevorrow directing, but this could make all the difference for Episode IX's reception. He's been a playwright on a lot of TV and stage productions, including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (interestingly enough), and has a few movies lined up in the coming months.

Downsizing Connolly's part, and using their initial script as the template before refining the dialogue. In effect, Trevorrow is George Lucas and Thorne is Lawrence Kasdan in this partnership.
isn't Jack Thorne an engineering guy? XDDDDD

I just downloaded Adywan's Empire Revisited fan edit. It's fricking glorious! Imagine every continuity error fixed in ESB as Lucas SHOULD have. Every little thing has been tinkered or improved, pink lightsabers changed back to red. The orange Star Destroyer exhaust changed to blue like it is in ANH, motion blur added to the stop motion effects, which have been smoothed out. All the garbage mattes on the TIEs erased. Even the RotS Emperor when Vader holochats him has been replaced with a image of the RotJ Emperor! I'm so happy to find out that it's finally available! I've been wanting this cut of the SW movies since I first heard about them through the proof of concept videos Adywan did that I found back in 2011. I'm downloading ANH Revisited now, and hoping it's just as glorious. Also hoping it doesn't take too long for him to release RotJ.

I understand everyone being supremely excited (myself included) but the article reads like this is something very far away and early stage, I mean it'll probably happen....

But at the same time I'm not going to get hyped only to get crushed if that makes sense.

Michael Kenneth Williams’ Role Cut From ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Movie Amid Reshoots

http://deadline.com/2017/08/michael-k-williams-han-solo-movie-roll-cut-reshoots-1202153750/

Quote :
Plot and character details had been kept under wraps, but Williams said he played a half-human, half-animal in the film and that “we created a kick-ass character, in my opinion. I’m proud of it.”

Well that's disappointing for him, and potentially us as well.

In all seriousness, I'd like to see one of those have battleship style turrets on it. 4 pairs of 2 gunned turrets would be ideal.

Personally, I was hoping for something more like the Eclipse in design. This seems so lackluster. The Finalizer was more interesting than this.

Adam Driver, AKA Kylo Ren hopes you are happy with his fate in the films.  "hopefully unexpected" he says.

Kind of a long interview and the Star Wars talk starts at 6:50. But it's a really good interview. Basically if you don't want to watch this is the TLDR version. Adam wanted to be an actor because his dad was a film buff, he tired and failed. Moved in with his parents and then 9/11 happened, so he joined the army. He got injured in a bike accident before he shipped out to Iraq so he was not allowed to go.

So he tried to go about acting again and eventually broke through. It's so crazy to think if he never had that injury he might not have been an actor, or alive for that matter.

I don't even know why Rian Johnson or Disney even agreed to that; shooting on digital is a surefire way to prevent the 4K scans of The Last Jedi from being complete ones, like The Force Awakens. Sure, 85% might be a genuine ultra-HD upgrade, but 15% of it won't be.

I'd work on star wars for free, no doubt... he got super fucked up when he read about, or played the game, to learn about Korriban, and that's there the Sith kid he writes about, comes from...

do you know what he's been doing? it's really, freaky cool insane, but like, what does dead mean? do people act like, "well in the real world,"
cuz I don't think he knows what you mean, and his old life with his family, he doesn't know how old he is, what you think money is for, and he's, a ghost
Honiker is, anyway, till he finds his family,
he's working super hard, not for money at all,
but to make himself mega famous, because he doesn't know how to find

what? shouldn't we let him win? 14 hour movies, for free?

Well when you post random things that are extremely odd it makes us wonder 3 things.

1. Bot.

2. Child.

3. Troll.

Like your post here in the Star Wars thread. How is that thought out? I did a google search on the guy you claim believes Star Wars is real and nothing in return came back. Sounds like you made it up. If not I apologize.

But if you're adding to the discussion you're gonna have to back up claims you put out.

Getting us back on topic.....

Am I the only one that's afraid we may end up with Disney trying to bring out some big prequel retconning event in a future film? Like, not that the prequels didn't happen, but something that'll put more importance on the Disney era moving forward. I have a feeling Lucas probably mandated they wouldn't ignore or get rid of the prequels when it came to the sale, but imagine this:

Anakin wasn't the chosen one. He may have had similarities to the prophecy, but we find out his "force child" status was a result of Darth Plagueis manipulating the force to create life. Therefore, his destiny was always steeped in the dark side, but he still was able to have good within him. Now, we don't know Rey's parents because.... she is the Chosen One. Her mother and the Jedi hid her because she was made from the pure force, and equal balance of light and dark. Her destiny would come to her sooner or later.

Now, while in my head that idea doesn't sound awful, and all the prequel haters would probably enjoy this, I don't like something like this. It's like my issues with calling it "Rey's lightsaber". It will forever be the Skywalker lightsaber. I feel like it'd be a certain disrespect to Lucas, who shaped the universe until he knew he didn't have it in him to take it further.

Disney has already ensured that the prequels are canon via Rebels and Rogue One so I don't think they can outright ret-con them out of existence like Paramount plans to do with all of the Terminators made after T2 via the planned 'proper' T3 movie made under James Cameron. That being said, I can see them ret-conning it where Luke is the chosen one via convincing his father that there is some good left and him training Rey. I don't disagree that Disney might do something like that, but I wonder how much they can do.

Osh said something interesting a while back.

i think part of the reason the Marvel movies are doing so well while now the future of Star Wars is up in the air is because Disney went ahead with Star Wars on their own rather than just acquiring a huge project that was already in the works and had been planned out years in advance (remember, part of why Marvel is so successful with their cinematic universe while other studios aren't is because they took their time starting it off while others are rushing into it to compete and it's hurting them badly because of that)

I agree with this. But I think there's something else at play: The the prequels eventually turned out to be so hated as time went on since The Phantom Menace came out, that is scared people into thinking that can't do anything original. It's a lot like how I think that Universal learned some wrong lessons from JP3, and to a lesser degree (GA wise), The Lost World. That with the GA being split on TLW and the overwhelming majority of fans, GA, and critics hating JP3, that we might not see Sorna again, even if JW: FK does ensure that the first 2 sequels are still hard canon.

Getting us back on topic.....

Am I the only one that's afraid we may end up with Disney trying to bring out some big prequel retconning event in a future film? Like, not that the prequels didn't happen, but something that'll put more importance on the Disney era moving forward. I have a feeling Lucas probably mandated they wouldn't ignore or get rid of the prequels when it came to the sale, but imagine this:

Anakin wasn't the chosen one. He may have had similarities to the prophecy, but we find out his "force child" status was a result of Darth Plagueis manipulating the force to create life. Therefore, his destiny was always steeped in the dark side, but he still was able to have good within him. Now, we don't know Rey's parents because.... she is the Chosen One. Her mother and the Jedi hid her because she was made from the pure force, and equal balance of light and dark. Her destiny would come to her sooner or later.

Disney has already ensured that the prequels are canon via Rebels and Rogue One so I don't think they can outright ret-con them out of existence like Paramount plans to do with all of the Terminators made after T2 via the planned 'proper' T3 movie made under James Cameron. That being said, I can see them ret-conning it where Luke is the chosen one via convincing his father that there is some good left and him training Rey. I don't disagree that Disney might do something like that, but I wonder how much they can do.

Osh said something interesting a while back.

i think part of the reason the Marvel movies are doing so well while now the future of Star Wars is up in the air is because Disney went ahead with Star Wars on their own rather than just acquiring a huge project that was already in the works and had been planned out years in advance (remember, part of why Marvel is so successful with their cinematic universe while other studios aren't is because they took their time starting it off while others are rushing into it to compete and it's hurting them badly because of that)

I agree with this. But I think there's something else at play: The the prequels eventually turned out to be so hated as time went on since The Phantom Menace came out, that is scared people into thinking that can't do anything original. It's a lot like how I think that Universal learned some wrong lessons from JP3, and to a lesser degree (GA wise), The Lost World. That with the GA being split on TLW and the overwhelming majority of fans, GA, and critics hating JP3, that we might not see Sorna again, even if JW: FK does ensure that the first 2 sequels are still hard canon.

Exactly.

I often see this awful argument about the Star Wars prequels(which I don't outright hate btw). And that argument is "you wanted something new, you complained. And now when you are getting something old and nostalgic you are still complaining".

And I'm like NO. People were never mad at the prequels for trying new things. People were mad at the prequels because they felt the new stuff wasn't any good. They hated some of the characters, the awful dialogue, direction and acting. And of course some of the story.

People did not hate the Star Wars prequels for being New. They hated it because they were not satisfied with the new stuff. That argument that new= bad annoys me to no end. ROTS is my favorite btw lol
