"Riverton CougarNo matter how they decide to do it, some fans of the
original trilogy will like the new trilogy and others will not. Some fans of the
prequel trilogy will like the new ones and others will not."The
prequels weren't just different, they were also awful. Haven't even
seen the third. Mee sa no desire to sa. Shoot that character with a blaster.
If John Williams doesn't score it and it doesn't open with big yellow
letters, it won't be Star Wars and it won't appeal to enough of the
true Star Wars fan base. Star Trek is one thing, but the Star Wars score is too
iconic. The opening story is too iconic. He can modernize it all he wants, but
some things need to be left the same. Actors can recast old characters in
StarTrek, but with a whole new story, whole new everything... it needs something
to make it Star Wars, and if the music and opening scroll is out, then it just
isn't Star Wars enough for me. It probably wouldn't be for most people
at that point, imo.
Here's my prediction:No matter how they decide to do it, some
fans of the original trilogy will like the new trilogy and others will not. Some
fans of the prequel trilogy will like the new ones and others will not.I don't think there's a way to please them all, but I like Star Wars
enough that I'm sure I'll like the new ones no matter what.
Good catch on the year. Hopefully they'll get that changed. As for the Zac
Efron/Ryan Gosling thing, I think for now it's safe to just take that as a
rumor. It's not inconceivable that they'd make offers to those two,
especially since they both have ties to the Mouse House, but J.J. Abrams
actually has a pretty good track record of going for relative unknowns -- look
at the casts for "Star Trek" and "Super 8," for example, or even
his TV shows like "Alias" and "Lost." Chris Pine, Chris
Hemsworth, Jennifer Garner, etc. might be stars now, but they definitely
weren't when he cast them. Don't be surprised to see Bruce Greenwood
pop up somewhere, though....
Except that they had proposed roles to Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling.... When the
script is great, you don't need stars! Stars are distracting pieces for a
well written script!
Oops - Return of the Jedi was released in 1983, not 1984. Not a huge problem,
obviously, but I just wanted to make sure we were accurate.
@LarcenyUh . . . that's Buzz Lightyear's line from Toy
Story. Wrong trilogy.I would say use the force Luke, and bring us a
better story line this time. That's what made the original movie/story so
To Infinity! And Beyond!
