So then the next one should be appropriately titled The New Flare.

Yes. Yes. Someone had to...

Re: More Star Wars films announced

No, that's the third Trek film Abrams is making.

The Enterprise has to battle blinding light rays that prevent starship crews from pressing the right buttons, resulting in numerous self-destructs and emptying of waste storage tanks into planetary atmospheres.

And the crew are unable to discern lens flares from enemies beaming into the ship. It becomes harrowing.

It's kind of meaningless to anybody except me, but I've had the gut feeling that the title will be something along the lines of The New Republic.

We've had both the Sith and the Jedi (opposing forces and philosophies) in titles, two that are somewhat vague at first glance but represent negative and positive (Phantom, Hope) and - of course - Empire. The opposite of the Empire in goals and philosophy is, of course, the Republic, whether old or new.

I know, I know. That leaves Clones. There's always one loner that stands out from the rest.
You're probably more right than wrong. They follow a certain, yet vague, pattern.

The Phantom Menace = A New Hope
Empire Strikes Back = Attack of the Clones
Return of the Jedi = Revenge of the Sith

I remember some discussion around the original title of Return of the Jedi, and whether it should have been titled Revenge of the Jedi. The middle two movies share a theme of "striking back".
We should be able to pump those titles into a 'supercomputer' that will deduce the next three Star Wars film names!

Re: More Star Wars films announced

A machine with one weak spot? An exhaust port, perhaps?

Nah....that'd be impossible, even for another computer.

What if we disabled the targeting computer? Trust me.

"so, you want the big climax to be a scene where the cute young hero shoots his torpedo up an exhaust pipe until it explodes? What rating is this movie again?"

Re: More Star Wars films announced

There's so much subtext to those films.

For all ages my ass.

And look at Luke's reaction when he hit his target. He was clearly having an orgasm.

It was likely the first time Luke had ever gotten laid.

You saw Tatooine. And Camie was already engaged to Fixer.

Calm down and have a little faith. Episode VII will be awesome. I'm pretty sure of it.

After all, Disney owned Miramax at the time that Pulp Fiction was produced and released....and that movie is one of the best (not to mention most graphic and violent) films of the last 20 years. Disney's not going to dumb down, childproof and ruin the Star Wars universe any more than they ruined the Avengers or the Pixar films.
That would be because they had the Weinstein Bros doing the company.

I don't trust Disney proper to tie their shoe laces after Prince of Persia and John Carter.
