Is everything an argument to you? Or are you just the old man troll that everyone seems to underestimate?

It's all about the ego with these guys.
As long as Lucas and his ego are no longer involved in the creative process, I don't care what he does.

As far as his legacy goes, if he was really concerned about it, he shouldn't have shit all over it with Episodes I-III and the last Indiana Jones disaster (which I was smart enough to never watch).

Again, **** you, George.

Agreed. He ruined any legacy that he had with those debacles.

Early in the thread, it was stated (speculated?) that future Star Wars movies would NOT be based on any novels, then the talk focused on the sequels being about the Jedi Academy?

Seriously - if they want to do movies based on novels, do the Thrawn stories. Dane said it would take a great screenwriter, so go offer that person a check to do it. If done properly, the Thrawn series would make ridiculous amounts of money.

Nope, I say Legacy era with the Solo kids and the Vong.

The Vong are badass and immune to the Force.

The worst part is that I don't think he even knew that he was shitting on beloved I.P.

Like I said earlier, the Midichlorians ruined the Star Wars Universe for me. Jar Jar sucked, Ani was a whiny bitch, the dialogue in each prequel was laughable and stiff.

But once he made it known that you had to be born with a certain bloodline to use The Force, ALL the fun was taken away. Hopefully, a smart writer will quickly negate that notion in the onslaught of sequels, TV shows, etc.

Was the dialogue really any better in the originals? I remember watching Harrison Ford giving an interview about how bad the dialogue was in the first ones.

Hayden sucked. Poor casting. Not even Natalie could save that poor hack.

The biggest problem with doing a Thrawn series today is that first off, the real age of Hamill, Fisher and Ford don't line up with the books. Plus, I seriously doubt that Ford would even consider it.

I'm guessing they'll do the Thrawn trilogy and the follow up Dualities at some point but I'll bet it'll be when the original actors have absolutely no chance of reprising their role, making it a reboot of sorts.
