McCallum was a soulless sycophant.

What went wrong with the Prequels is there was no one there to tell George what he was doing was wrong! Marcia his ex wife was the one to do that for him. She was very much involved in the creative process with his films, ideas and being his film editor.

Here's an article on her and an interview.

My parents were fans of this singer Harry Chapin, and he had this song called "30,000 Pounds of Bananas" that used to crack up me and my sister all the time because the running joke was that he couldn't come up with a decent ending to the song, and every version he tried was interrupted by one of his brothers telling him "Harry, it sucks."

I've always said George needed at least one of Harry Chapin's brothers with him when he was writing the prequels.

Agree on Ryan Gosling/Bradley Cooper as a new Han Solo style character. Could really be awesome.

I think Ryan Gosling should take over playing Leia. He could do it.

Patton Oswalt needs to be in Star Wars. Seriously. And not just as a side comic relief character. Give him some depth!

How about him playing the son of the legendary Porkins? He could do good self-deprecating humor.

I really hope they don't re-cast the roles. They're either in the movie, or you write a story without them.

Report: Empire Strikes Back Writer Could Be Working On New Star Wars Spinoff

Let the Star Wars rumor mill continue to churn. A couple of weeks ago, rumors suggested that Disney had tapped Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan and X-Men writer Simon Kinberg to write new Star Wars movies. Disney has said they plan to release a new Star Wars every two to three years.

But wait! Now The Hollywood Reporter says that Kasdan and Kinberg might not be writing Episode VIII or Episode IX: they're working on spinoff projects that might wind up being new entities entirely.

"Their scripts could turn into official 'Episodes' in the main Skywalker storyline, or they could form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters," THR writes.

Star Wars: The Boba Fett Experience? R2D2 Strikes Back? The possibilities are endless.

I don't really want spin offs in the normal sense but a new Star Wars outside of the Skywalker line could work (as well as Episodes VII - IX). Would be great to dig into some other aspects of the SW universe from the point of view of non Jedi in a different set of films as long as production values are equal to the other films.

Is Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith a Work of Art?

Famed art critic calls Episode III the greatest artwork in 30 years.

I don't know if I agree, but the points she made seem true, especially the "emperor's new clothes" line.

Yes, I'd rather have Mark Hamill Luke Skywalker or no Luke(and the rest) at all.

I'm not a huge anime fan. but any one of miyzaki's films are infinitely more artistically resonant than revenge of the sith.

Not too fond of the "Kasdan wrting a spinoff movie" rumour. Hopefully it doesn't pan out.

Good God, enough with Boba Fett. He did nothing significant in the original films and Lucas only included that ridiculous backstory in the prequels as BJ to the fanboys. I don't want to see any reference to Boba Fett, his daddy Jango Fett or his son Foot Fett anywhere in the new movies.

It appear Ewan McGregor is also willing to appear in the next SW if asked: http://www.tmz.com/2012/11/29/ewan-m...r-wars-disney/

Obi-Wan Kenobi WILL be returning to the new "Star Wars" movies -- at least if Ewan McGregor has any say ... telling TMZ, he'd happily reprise his role as the Jedi Master in the next installment.

McGregor was out at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood Tuesday night when we asked if he was down with the new movies -- and Ewan said Ew-betcha.

As we reported, Lucasfilms was bought out by Disney for $4 BILLION -- and the studio is already planning several more SW movies.

Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) have also said they want in on the new flicks.


I could go for old Ben making a force ghostie appearance to Luke. They can age Ewan if need be
