Yep. Plus, you'd have to do some serious CG to get Carrie back to form...

The dialogue wasn't necessarily better, but it was certainly more believable due to the actors delivering the lines.

In the prequels, the only guy that I truly believed was Liam Neeson. But then again, he's awesome in everything.

Yeah, Disney's not going that route. They have a large universe to explore and a timeline of like 20,000 years.

I could see them going back 1,000 years before ANH and starting out with a young Yoda and the Republic at that time before doing anything of note with the original cast (outside of Hamill, the droids and Chewy).

I think it would be infinitely cooler than 7-9 but I imagine they'll be developing movies or a TV series based on the Old Republic.

CGI has gotten to the point where it's somewhat affordable for premium cable TV.

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.
Have you ever watched the Plinkett review of Phantom Menace? I've mentioned in it this thread before. I think you'd really appreciate it. He completely dissects the total dumbassery that is Episode I.

http://redlettermedia.com/plinkett/s...hantom-menace/

Some stuff that he doesn't mention:

Only 2 Sith at one time? Always? What the hell is that? Since they were both killed off in ROTJ, I guess there's no more evil in the universe, right?

And why do the Jedi always feel the need to fight 2-on-1? There's a name for that - pussy. That bothered me almost as much as Jar Jar. Almost.

Thanks! I'll check it out when time permits.

Hopefully, a smart writer can negate some of this stuff, especially the Midichlorians, which would be easy: "Midichlorians? That's how the Jedi thought they were connected to the Force. They were wrong, just as they were wrong about the return of the Sith."

Bam, done. Shut the **** up, George Lucas.

Not always. The history has periods were there were armies of Sith as well.

I know I'm old school and it probably wont happen, but I really hope that Disney distances themselves from all the CGI stuff and goes back to more of what made the original movies great and more real. You had a connection with characters like Yoda, Chewbacca and the Ewoks that was thrown out the moment the unveiled the CGI Yoda and other characters.

That, to me, was the biggest fail of the prequels and even the remakes of the originals that Lucas re-released.

Yoda specifically said that there are two - no more, no less.

Yes, it's as dumb as the midachlorians, and needs to be excised.

I personally hope that the new movies are approached in such a manner all of the content from the last three abortions is ignored. Sort of like Highlander 2.

I remember seeing an interview a young George Lucas gave (may be in the Plinkett review) where he specifically says that special effects should NOT overpower the story.

Swear to God.
