Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

My brother had an interesting thought about this. Considering how Joss Whedon is chums with Disney, this might open the possibility of him being involved in future Star Wars movies. Think about it: Star Wars written by Joss Whedon.

Hmm, also, maybe Pixar Star Wars? Not necessarily a full blown movie. Maybe some shorts.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Episode 7: The Reign of Jar Jar. Fear! The galaxy is in disarray. The Empire has fallen into Civil War. The Rebellion, now calling itself the New Republic is unable to keep order. Factions have arisen. The Trade Federation's Droid Army has been reactivated. Imperial forces once loyal to Emperor Palpatine have pledged their allegiance to the highest bidder. Senator Jar Jar Binks, having been elected Chancellor by a small majority in the newly formed Republican Senate following the destruction of the Death Star II, has seized power and rules with an iron fist. On the planet below, Luke and Leia are training the next generation of Jedi. Elsewhere, Han shoots first...

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Good luck roping Harrison Ford into playing Han Solo again. He's said repeatedly over the years that Solo was a fun gig for him and he's grateful that it made him a star, but wasn't a meaty role with the kind of depth and backstory he likes and prefers in his characters. That doesn't mean that Disney and Lucasfilm can't dangle an enormous, record-breaking paycheck in front of him to make him change his mind, but as of right now I don't think Harrison is interested in reviving Han Solo as a much older, grouchier former Rebel griping to Chewie in the New Republic.

New Indiana Jones movie or cartoon in the future now?

What's wrong Disney? "Avenger's" didn't make enough money for you?


Good grief. The rich get richer.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

Guys, this is fantastic news. Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones sucked majorly, and Revenge of the Sith was better but not great. Handing the movies onto a new director and script writer can only improve things, or keep them about where they are now. It can't make things worse.

Disney is no "more" of a corporation than Lucasfilm or 20th Century Fox, so nothing has changed there. All Disney has to do is hire the right writer and director, and we may conceivably get a Star Wars movie better than anything we've seen since the early 80's. At worst, it's mindless CGI-filled crap, which is all we've gotten from that franchise in the last decade or so anyway.

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.
For the love of all that is holy, they'd better! Star Wars isn't Star Wars without John Williams.

Re: Star Wars Episode 7 - 2015

SO much is here, I have no idea if this was shared yet - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...=QIkqX5fG_tA#!

Its a video of Lucas and Disney CEO Rober Iger. Lucas says him and Kathleen Kennedy has been discussing story ideas for Episodes 7-9 already. This really won't be Disney's Star Wars anymore in style than Marvel's characters are. Lucasfilm will still be in control. Its just a part of Disney the company, same with Pixar.

Lucas says he is passing over to them the story treatments for 7,8 and 9...
wow great find! uploaded by starwars on Oct.30, 2012.

start at 1:35
Lucas:
"I have story treatments of 7, 8, and 9 and a bunch of other movies...I sort of moved that treasure trove...to Kathy."


Kathy:
"(we are)...sitting down with a couple of writers and starting to discuss ideas of what those stories might be."

Since Lucas says in this video that he won't be doing anymore I think he will really have a backseat and approval of script and then it will really be out of his hands as an Executive Producer. Someone else will run the show during preproduction, production, and post production.

Does this mean that Disney will hire John Williams to compose the score of the next film? That would be most interesting.

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?

So Lucas has given story treatments for 'a bunch of other movies' to Disney that he has had the ideas to do for decades too. I wonder what some of those are. Maybe other franchises?
Interesting. Harry Knowles of AICN has been insisting for a couple years now that people at LucasFilm flat out told him there have been sequel trilogy plans for a while, but standard operation procedure was to deny publicly their existence until it was time to roll with them.
