Star Wars Episode VII - It's coming

[ Edited ]
9 replies 106 views Edited Oct 31, 2012

That's right, it's been nearly thirty years since the Star Wars Original Trilogy concluded with Return of the Jedi in 1983. Now, it has been officially confirmed that a sequel trilogy is in production, and Star Wars Episode VII is set for release sometime in 2015.

I'm a HUGE Star Wars fan. I don't like the prequel trilogy films (with the exception of Episode III), but I certainly do not hate them. They are part of the story, even if they were not handled well. But how will a sequel trilogy fare?

 

I have mixed feelings about this, but I'm also extremely excited. I cannot wait for a continuation of the epicness that we all thought was concluded all those years ago. I realize that George Lucas has one of the biggest egos in the film industry, and he has a history of adding new props, dialogue, creatures completely unnesessary things in his films, but I'm putting my faith in him that he won't mess up with these new movies.

 

Here's how it came about: Apparently, Disney bought out Lucasfilms for four billion dollars, and then suddenly decided they would make more Star Wars movies. That right there seems a bit sketchy, since Lucas himself said countless times there would be no sequel trilogy. I'm hoping this isn't being done just for money. I hope whoever is in charge is doing this for Star Wars.

 

I'm also uneasy about the fact that Star Wars lies in the hands of Disney. I'll be honest, I hate Disney. Now, I don't hate all Disney movies; I just hate the company in general. I'm hoping they don't try to make the new films "sweet and family friendly" with a "good moral message". I just want a Star Wars film. That's it. Disney better not screw this up.

What are your thoughts on the new Star Wars trilogy?

I'll wait for more into before passing any judgement.

Used to be a huge Star Wars junkie but I've sorta "grew out of it" since getting into gaming.

Oh my god, my excitement for The Hobbit is through the roof. I loved Lord of the Rings, and from what I've seen in the trailers, it looks great. And yeah, Episode VII being made by Disney is my biggest issue. Disney really grinds my gears.

From what I hear, Lucas won't be directing the new trilogy. So apart from the direction in which they'll go with the new trilogy (will it be set before Episode I, between III and IV, or after VI? will it be completely unrelated to the original movies and be set in a far-off part of the timeline like KOTOR or Legacy? will the focus still be on the light side vs. dark side of the force?) you do have to worry about who they'll pick to man these new movies.
