I first came to Hollywood alone and when walking around on the weekends, noticed newsstands everywhere. I just happened to stumble upon the first Zahn/Thrawn book in 1993 and purchased it. I've read that trilogy and his follow up dualities since but I could never get into the other authors much.
I really enjoyed the Republic Commando books, most were written by Karen Traviss. The Rogue Squadron series was also very entertaining.

Well, this is a drag for those people wanting Blu-Ray editions of the original, unedited films.

Fox Still Owns The Original "Star Wars"


Ready for the first wrinkle in the Disney-Lucasfilm deal?

While Disney will own and release future films in the "Star Wars" series, the deal does NOT include the distribution rights to the pre-existing "Star Wars" films.

Those rights remain with 20th Century Fox. In fact, Fox owns distribution rights to the original 1977 "Star Wars" film in perpetuity in all media worldwide.

It also has theatrical, nontheatrical and home video rights worldwide to the other five films in the series through May 2020.

This means Disney can't issue a 'complete saga' set unless a deal with Fox is made. It also means fan hopes for quality Blu-ray editions of the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy are highly unlikely.

Fox also plans to still re-release the 3D versions of "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith" next Fall.

Very true. Star Wars embarrasses him. He thinks he's too good for it.

Meh.....no biggie to me. I actually like some of the updated effects and appreciate no matte lines on ships.

I wish they would cut the Greedo shoots first and Han/Jabba scene in Star Wars though, but i can live with it.

more than likely Disney turns it into a commercialized pile of shit, but Lucas wasn't doing anything with it so i guess it can't be any worse.

Seems like Lucas pretty much hates the whole franchise

Well, it's also interesting to note that Disney spent $4 BILLION and didn't even get the first six episodes.

They're really banking on their new productions to be extremely successful.

I'd expect some big name directors for the first few episodes (Speilberg, Brad Bird, Nolan, etc. type guys).

How much more "commercialized" could Star Wars become? That's how Lucas made a majority of his income: Merchandising.

I don't think he hates it at all. He sold it to Disney because he believes it'll keep his legacy alive.

Every single production will say "Based on Characters Created By George Lucas".

oh it can become more commercialized, just wait.

I think he sold it to get everyone off his back ... and money of course.

You can hear the distaste and anger in his voice/words whenever he talks about it. He sounds like one of these actors who gets a great role early in their career and then never gets another shot because of it. They start wishing that they would of never gotten the big role in the first place.

OK...im down with Matthew Vaughn. IMO he hasnt made a bad film yet.




http://collider.com/star-wars-episod...5/#more-208715





Over the past seven years, Collider’s track record has been pretty good. The reason is, before we run any “scoop,” we always make sure to double source it so we know the information is accurate. However, the story we are about to run has not been confirmed, and I want to make sure everyone knows this is not 100%. I only decided to run this because I trust my sources and it’s Star Wars. In addition, while I spent all weekend trying to lock this story down, all my normal connections would not go on record (or they did not know), so this is going up as a “rumor” and “unconfirmed.”

Now that I’ve warned you this is just a “rumor”….

I’m hearing that Matthew Vaughn, the director of Kick-Ass, Stardust, Layer Cake, and X-Men: First Class, is in talks with Lucasfilm to helm Star Wars: Episode VII. My sources tell me this is the main reason he dropped out of the X-Men sequel (which Bryan Singer is now directing). Hit the jump for more.


As most of you know, last week Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion dollars and they also announced a 2015 release date for Star Wars: Episode VII. Seconds after the deal was announced, a bunch of interviews were released featuring Disney CEO Bob Iger and George Lucas talking about the business deal, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Lucas discussing Star Wars: Episode VII and revealing that they’ve already met with writers for the new film. It was clear that this deal has been in the works for awhile.

As such, it makes a lot of sense that while we only just heard this news, behind-the-scenes Lucasfilm has been working hard to land a director to helm the new installment.

Now you have to ask yourself, why would Vaughn abruptly drop out of helming the X-Men sequel when the head of 20th Century Fox (Tom Rothman) is leaving the studio? After all, while Rothman helped make some great movies over the past few years, he’s also known as a micro-manager that can rub some filmmakers the wrong way. With Rothman out, I imagine Vaughn would have had more creative control on the sequel and it would have been an easier film to make.

But if Lucasfilm offered Vaughn the keys to Star Wars, that’s something he’d likely jump ship for.

While many of you might be wondering if Vaughn can handle directing a Star Wars movie, I really think he’s a great choice. After all, he made a fantastic X-Men movie that successfully rebooted the franchise, his work with a limited budget on Kick-Ass was also great, and Stardust proved he can make one hell of an adventure film.

In addition, Vaughn is a writer. He worked on the scripts for X-Men: First Class, The Debt, Stardust and Kick-Ass (with Jane Goldman) so if he ends up directing Star Wars, we’d also be getting someone that could solve script issues on set. It’d be great if he could convince Goldman to come onboard as well.

So is Vaughn lining up to direct the full new trilogy or just the first film? I have no idea. But I’d imagine if this deal does happen, it would be similar to the one Marc Webb has on Spider-Man, which is they’ll do it on a film by film basis, with the assumption that if the first film is a success and he wants to come back, he could.

Anyway, as I have already said many times, for now Vaughn directing Star Wars is just a “rumor.” I’d imagine after this posts, it’ll either be confirmed or it will blow up in my face. I’m hoping it’s true.

This is the most excited I’ve been for Star Wars since 1998 and I honestly cannot wait to see the new movie in 2015. What about you?
