I Want This as a Star Wars Film Now

Here's the four minute 'Deceived' E3 cinematic trailer for the 'Star Wars: The Old Republic' MMO game which is set about 3,500 years before the Prequels/OT and 300 years after the KOTOR games.

While obviously making a trailer is a lot easier and different than making a feature length film, you can tell that the people behind the trailer just get it, and I think they would be able to make an exciting and compelling Star Wars film if given the opportunity by George Lucas. There's almost zero chance of that ever happening, of course, despite Lucas letting others play in the sandbox for the TV productions, but one can dream.

You can find more information on the setting below, and see some great concept art amongst other things at the main site.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
