Nah, as far as Lucas is concerned, the Skywalker saga ended with Vader's redemption.

Unless you actually meant ROTS. That's what I was thinking. But something other than that criminal underworld bullshit Rick McCallum was talking about.

I want a show about Tarkin's rise within the ranks and Vader's quest to find and eradicate all the remaining Jedi in hiding, while Bail Organa and Mon Mothma build the Rebel Alliance. Now THAT would be worth watching, IMO.
Just because Lucas can't envision the post ROTJ story doesn't mean there isn't one there that could be awesome. Im sure the writers working on TCW could figure something good out.

Post ROTS is also a good idea but the obvious approach is to focus on Ahsoka. They already seem to be setting up this story with Lux and Boba,conveniently close to Ahsoka's age, as major characters.

As much as I don't care about this show, it being mired in the PT and all, re-watching ReBoot on dvd does make me wonder if they plan on releasing Clone Wars blu-rays in 3D. All it'd take would be some fiddling on the software side and a second render, no?

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I can't find it now but about a few years ago a very well crafted CGI trailer for a project called "New Jedi Order" or something was about the interwebs and I think it was a school project for some animation students but it also offered solid "proof-of-concept" that a similar series post ROTS would look amazing. In fact, IIRC, it was mistaken for official and had some fans scratching their heads.

Sadly it seems Lucas doesn't want to go that time period at all. I wish someone could find the video. It was great. Looks like it's been wiped out from the internet.

So... we don't have a release date for S5 yet? just "October?"

The franchise would had been much batter of without Lucas. Lucas probably lost his talents getting old and he is scared to make his own kind of movies.

Eventually there will come a day when we will have Star Wars without Lucas. Trek has been doing fine without Gene.

Give it a shot. They've rewritten/expanded upon the most objectionable parts of the PT (Anakin being a dumb nasty punk, the politics being dull and uninvolving, etc). They dont spend much time with Jar-Jar and his idiocies, and they've added characters whose fates are unknown, and therefore provide some dramatic tension, Ahsoka foremost among them.

And theyve added some sense of magic and mystery to the whole handwaving aspect of the Force, Chosen One, etc, that was entirely lacking in the movies, which is vital since thats the part that distinguishes Star Wars from other space opera franchises and gives it a unique tone. Basically, TCW is how the movies should have been done.

Lucas is fine with the basic ideas, but the results are always so much better when he has collaborators who can work with him as equals, rather than being surrounded by toadies and yes men who wont tell him when his storytelling, direction and casting choices suck. TCW is good for the same reason ESB was good - Lucas has gotten himself some competent help.

And at this point, the help could keep going on their own steam and let Lucas retire.

TCW has the same kind of toadies and yes men. Why wouldn't it?

Star Wars/Trek ended up being good despite GL/GR, not because of him.

There, I said it.

Bye!

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

@billcosby I believe this is what you were referring to earlier in the thread. It's actually called "Star Wars: The Solo Adventures" and was done by the Dave School of Digital Arts and revealed at Celebration V.
