Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

All the negativity aside. Pixar is still OK (Yes I liked Brave, shut up). Marvel is still awesome. Tron 2 and John Carter were good films even with their problems.

Episode 7 with Andrew Stanton or Josh Whedon as director !! Even a geek can wish upon a star.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Why are so many, so panicked that Disney will rap all over the Franchise?

The Prequel Trilogy, had alot of issues, so, not a major loss there, taking the Franchise out ofthose hands. Star Wars Movie have always been pretty Disney Friendly, they've done alright by Pixar and Marvel CMU.

What exactly is the specific fear of Disney owning Star Wars?

What are the legalities if they do not hire John Williams but use some of his score & themes in writing the new score for the 2015 film?
I hope they hire Williams. He's brilliant.

I doubt he has ANY say in what music they use in the future releases. He was paid to compose. I doubt he retains any actual ownership of the intellectual property. It's possibly Lucas might have given him some of the publishing, but I doubt it.

I think ownership of the music would move to Disney and they would be free to do with it what they wanted.

SW fans shouldn't complain. They finally got their wish. George Lucas isn't using Jar Jar to rape their childhoods. Now they'll be abused by a mindless, heartless, soulless corporation. Welcome to the world of Trek.

The word "Disney" is enough to kill the excitement I should otherwise feel...
True, but shouldn't the words "no more George" balance things out?

Honestly, when I first read about this I honestly thought it was the latest (or earliest?) April Fools joke in history. Can't say as I'm too worried about the supposed new film/trilogy as it can hardly be as lacklustre as the prequels. I mean, yes, Disney is pretty much pure evil these days, but they seem to be able to put out some good live action films...so long as they're not directly involved in the creative side of course.

Wouldn't care to guess what the film will be about, but I'd bet serious money it *won't* have anything to do with the EU. Having said that, wasn't it Lucas's plan at some stage to set the sequel trilogy some 40-odd years post RotJ with Luke in the Yoda/Kenobi mentor role to a bunch of new Jedi he's trained? No idea what the actual plot could be, but I just hope it's not something as predicable as his prize student/son falling to the dark side...

Nah, those of us who enjoyed the new Trek Movie don't apologize for the movie, we apologize for the bashers

Meh, I don't feel that bad about this. Mostly because I know how it is with tie-in books.

I imagine they'll retain John Williams for Episodes VII-IX provided the man is still alive and kicking and can contribute new compositions to the Saga.

Is Mike glad Lucas is out, or should he be held on suicide watch now?

They give credit where it's due


"Music by James Horner"

"Original theme composed by John Williams"
