While I'd love to see Thrawn on the big screen and in film format, it's not going to happen. George has already said it will derive from an original story and not something that's already been published.If they want to make the fans happy from the start, then do Thrawn. What better way to show that they're on our side than giving us one of the most popular EU characters on the big screen?
Wait a second. I think we need to be careful about what they say and don't say. "Original story" not taken from the existing EU does not necessarily mean they won't use characters, scenarios, planets, etc. from the EU. TCW has been almost all original stories, but they've borrowed heavily from the existing EU, including popular characters like Quinlan Vos and scenarios like the squidheads and Mon Calamari living on the same planet.They've announced it'll be a new story...no Thrawn. Sorry.
Which is by the by, because if the story changes on a Star Wars film then the original non-film EU story is rendered null and void. Which I am looking very much forward to."Original story" not taken from the existing EU does not necessarily mean they won't use characters, scenarios, planets, etc. from the EU.
I really disagree. Not recasting those part would be a huge mistake.Ok... I will attempt a non-negative post.
If they use the main three in any capacity, you simply have to have the original actors. Recasting those parts would be a huge mistake.
No dude, **** that ****.episodes 7-9 is an exciting prospect...but i am hoping they get to doing a Old Republic era film/trilogy....I figure they will be moving forward in time and not back....but how awesome is the story of the Mandalorian wars, Revan and on through the sith vs. jedi war/ treaty of coruscant era....movies would be sick !!
Maybe Disney will do a special deal with 20th Century Fox so they can still have it and the fanfare?Don't get me wrong I'm very excited about the new trilogy but it's going to be really weird watching a Star Wars movie without the 20 century fox opening! :hmm: Anyway I hope at least Hamill has a new role in the trilogy.
Battle of Naboo had a pretty extensive space element. Something I noticed about the prequels is that the combat became more personal - in other words, one-on-one or two Jedi-on-one Sith - than in the OT, where the big battles largely happened completely removed from the big battle of the film (ROTJ being the exception).We need some awesome space battles, something that was sorely lacking from the prequels. EP III had the beginnings of one but it was cut short with story diverting to the rescue operation.
