Re: Stories that don't need zombies?

I don't think Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer has any need of zombies... Yukon Cornelius is all the cool that movie needs!

Re: Stories that don't need zombies?

I've honestly not seen a single suggestion in this thread that wouldn't be a blast to watch. Especially the Mad Men suggestion. That would be absolutely epic.

Naturally, adding zombies to The Clone Wars would be... interesting. Though any Jedi could make short work of an army of the walking dead. Zombie Emperor of Dune...hmmm....

Going by what Obi-Wan said about the Force ("The Force is what gives a Jedi his powers. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together."), I kind of figure that Zombies are immune to the Force. Since they are the undead, they don't add to the Force and in my opinion, can't be directly affected by it, either (I view it this way, if a Jedi were to "Force Blast" a Zombie, it wouldn't work, but, of course, if they were to use the Force to throw something at a Zombie, it'd hit the Zombie. I think it goes without saying that the Jedi Mind Trick wouldn't work on a Zombie).

I've clearly given this way too much thought.

Jedi can manipulate inanimate objects and predict their movements etc. so I don't see zombies being immune to those effects. Things like the Jedi mind trick however would be a different matter.
