What if they rebooted Star Wars?

This made me think, could it work or would the die hard fanbase simply revolt and burn down Skywalker ranch in protest?

Star Wars was just the original trilogy, imo.

Loved them, but the 'modern' ones are just sci-fi movies with the name 'Star Wars' attached.

By all means make a film , but stop milking the classic 3 originals.

If Lucas tried to force (excuse pun) midichlorians into the original trilogy I would be at the ranch with a pitchfork. It's not broke George, don't fix it.
If he wanted to have another go at the prequels I wouldn't be too fussed, in fact I could help him out. Get rid of the virgin birth aspect, midichlorians, Darth Vader building the campest droid in the universe, artoo-deetoo flying, yoda jumping around, Jar-Jar Binx, Luke's mum dying from a "broken heart", just realised this list will probably amount to, bin the lot and start again. Go and see the guys at Dark Horse comics, Timothy Zahn or Kevin J Anderson and relearn how to write good Star Wars. /rant

Lucas probably lost some money with the banking collapse, so he needs some ' money i found in the sofa ' to keep him going.

Seems that "Star Wars Episode VII:" is trending on twitter at the moment, my favourite so far is Star Wars Episode VII: Lucas needs a ranch extension

I'd be quite interested in a less epic Star Wars film. Maybe taking place mostly on one planet, with a more intimate story.

I always felt that the recent trilogy failed because they tried to do too much and tried to force everything to make it feel 'epic'.

Look at films like Moon, which manage to do modern sci-fi well without ridiculous $200M budgets and CG overload.

They should tone it down and try something different.

I think George Lucas should go back home and watch Seven Samurai about a dozen times. Then, he might remember why the original trilogy worked, and he'll give up on this quest to destroy whatever good remains of the Star Wars franchise.

It's not about the technology, George. Forget 3D. Forget "synthespians." Take down the green screens and build a damn set. All the space ships, laser canons, and lightsabers were secondary to the actual story that was going on.

This.
If they need to make a new film what about setting it thousands of years before the other films, like the new game sw: old rebuplic.

This is the problem with today's entertainment industry. The complete lack of new ideas is a bit sad, really.

All Hollywood and game producers spit out seems to be sequels (and in extreme cases prequels released after the initial film) of older, popular titles. Just because the original were good doesn't mean that the sequel will be.

I'm not saying that all sequels are bad, but Mr. Lucas should REALLY start thinking about making something else than new iterations of the Star Wars titles. Just do a quick search on IMDB and you'll see how many film, game and series titles there are of Star Wars.

+1. It's time to let go now, and have another good idea. Or he'll just end up like the Wachowski brothers --oops, too late...

The Matrix was brilliant and the Blu-ray version doubly so. It's a damn shame they never made any sequels.


On topic, I'm a leave this here. It's a clip from the Star Wars Holiday Special which a lot of you kids may never have even heard of. It really happened. Actually, I'm pretty sure this deserves a gritty CGI reboot as well.

Also, Han shot first.

Yep, sat in the collection along with the 1950's War of the Worlds*, Lexx et al.


*It's a shame they never did a remake set in New Jersey with that guy from Top Gun. Because, y'know, Horsell Common is just sooo passť.

Hah, denial isn't just a river in Egypt.
