    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."

    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.

    Uh . . . 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 compelling.
