Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

^But presumably the GIFs were selected because they were Disney/SW mashups, something which clearly existed before the deal just because there are random mashups of everything out there already. So it stands to reason that the chariot is from some Disney production, and that's the question I'm asking: what production?

I don't believe it's from a Disney production at all or was ever intended to have anything to do with Disney, despite whoever compiled those images thinking it did (like I said, the pink princess image has nothing to do with Disney either --it's just a generic princess costume with Vader parts added. The only vague connection is that Disney Princesses are so popular). I think someone (probably at 4Chan) just thought it would be funny to make the scene of Han chasing after the Stormtroopers look like they were pulling him in a chariot. The chariot and harnesses are just drawn on to the Star Wars gif frame by frame, it's not taken from any other movie. Searching the image on TinEye shows no mention of Disney whatsoever.

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

What do you all think about who should direct the next movie?

I found the following article which raises some interesting possibilities (and some not-so-interesting):
http://www.hitfix.com/news/10-dream-...wars-episode-7

The only two I really like on this list are Brad Bird and Alfonso Cuaron, but I don't think either have a shot at this really. Not enough box office experience. The idea of Favreau doing it is kind of looney tunes, his tone would be totally wrong for the universe I think. Del Toro is an interesting idea, but I think he's too closely associated with horror to have a real shot at it.

My fear is that it will end up in the hands of someone bankable but kind of bland, like a Ron Howard. Didn't his Dark Tower project blow up recently?

edit:
Nevermind, I found the other thread here:

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

Rumor du jour: they're bringing back Darth Vader now.

That wouldn't shock me at all. Disney sees Star Wars as a brand that encompasses important sub-brands - Luke Skywalker etc. The other OT characters are also brands, but Vader is the biggest brand of them all.

Rather than trying to bring back Vader in the post-ROTJ trilogy, can't they just do a trilogy set between ROTS and ANH, with Vader as the man character? They have big brands in Star Wars, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Leia Organa for the next trilogy, do they really need Vader too?

They could have Luke go all darkside and become Vader, who is not a person but rather a deathless force of evil or something like that. I'd prefer Luke to become Darth Anythingelse, but this is Disney and you can't have Snow White without the Evil Queen, after all.

I'm going to take a wild guess at this point and say that they will bring Vader back by cloning. There's already a lot of precedent for that in the PT.

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

The Vader resurrection rumor is from a British tabloid. That alone should tell you how credible it is.

And yes, SW has shown that you can clone people's bodies, but there's no indication the personality comes with it. The Clone Troopers in The Clone Wars all have very distinct personalities, rather than being a bunch of Jango Fetts. A clone of Anakin Skywalker would not be Darth Vader, or even Anakin. It would just look and sound like Anakin.

Although there was that Dark Horse comic where Palpatine somehow managed to transfer his mind into a clone body, wasn't there?

Yes, Dark Empire (and its sequels, Dark Empire II and Empire's End). He did so via a Force ability, of course.

Re: Disney buys Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock.

Well, I imagine it would be centered around a mystery of who's behind the Darth Vader mask now. Vader had become more of a reputation instead of someone who had to make grand displays of power; it would probably take awhile for the average joe to be brave enough to accuse Darth Vader of being an impostor.

Disney isn't going to care if it's an Anakin Skywalker under the mask; it's the mask that sells.

There is also the possibility that he might be alive through the immortality technique he learned from Darth Plagueis.
