Much like it won't feel like a SW film without 20th Century Fox at the opening.
Solution:

Disney buys Fox and News Corp. Problem taken care of.

Kenny didn't have much to do at times during the Prequel films but George kept him around for certain closeups he felt would be better served with Baker inside an astro droid shell. Nah, he probably wouldn't get much work in Episode VII but if he's still around when shooting commences I'd be very stunned if he wasn't signed to return.

After all, it wouldn't feel like a complete SW film without "....and KENNY BAKER as Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2)" flashing across the screen during the closing credits.
And even then, it appeared he wasn't really strong enough anymore to make Artoo wiggle and shake like he did in the OT.

I think they would sign him (and Daniels) on anyway just so their names would appear in the credits. It would not be a waste of casting dollars, and as you said it's worth it to see their names in the credits.

At this point, they would use Daniels only for his voice. Something seems wrong about shoving a 70 year old guy into a suit like that.

I dunno. Depends on the old guy. Some 70 year olds absolutely deserve that treatment!

Although what I think would be interesting would be how they would handle the decades of "Expanded Universe" stories and "canon" and other elements that most fans have "Accepted as canon" into account. Since really while Clone Wars is sorta kinda sticking to SOME of the established EU canon, they're also making up stuff as they go along too. Or simply redefining things.
I think it would be best if they adhered to EU continuity as best they can and only deviate from it when they absolutely have to.

So even if they go back and do a Pre-OT movie with Obi-Wan on Tattooine they could always acknowledge that Mos Isley was an "armpit" compared to Mos Espa and that's why Obi Wan took Luke there in the first place in the OT even though clearly in the PT Mos Espa was the "happenin" spot" - could also be that if he was trying to stay off the grid, the armpit town of Mos Isley was a better chance, smaller bars, fewer folks around - although at the same time - it almost backfired since it was so friggin small. How long did it take the Stormies to find them? A couple of days at most? That's pretty damn fast for a non Core world.
The Storm Troopers weren't tracking Obi-Wan. They were tracking the droids. It couldn't have been too hard to follow the droid tracks to nearby sandcrawler tracks. Afterwards, it's merely a matter of torturing Jawas.

See this is the problem. A lot of fans think and are convinced the Emperor's inner circle aren't human. Others don't, and the reference materials are often little help and conflict with one another if you've spent much time with them.

We need more consistency among the printed reference materials, online sources and the Expanded Universe to keep things a little straighter than they usually are.
Naw. Continuity is easier when everything's fast & loose.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

AICN reports a rumor of a Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) standalone film.

Apparently Drew Karpyshyn himself has taken on the task of coming up with a screenplay....if this is even true. If you're an EU lover keep your ears open just in case.

I think the original KOTR game would make for a very good movie.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I'm assuming it would be some sort of spin-off, most likely having to do with the Mando Wars.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

Which is probably the thing that worries me the most about the Disney takeover: the Mouse is a damned whore. He'll greenlight anything that the guys in the Magic Castle think will make them a few bucks.

I'm not implying a KOTOR movie might not be good or even wonderful, but I just don't want every single nook and cranny of the Star Wars universe to start demanding its own big-budget, two-hour epic. Overkill of even the best things is not only possible but happens.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

The one thing The Old Republic has going for it is it's the one era that's most like the film era, but it's still completely detached from the other films. The three games and the few comics are only limited to about 400 years, but the The Old Republic Era is about 3000 years.

I think the story potential to start "fresh" is better than it would be anywhere else. Even The New Republic era (even if set in distant future) would still ultimately be tied to the movies.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

The Old Republic does have some amazing characters....the myriad Darths (Malak, Revan, Nihilus, Malgus) for example could potentially be even creepier and more interesting than most of the Sith Lords in the Saga films.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

One thing is, there's been the rumored Disney buyout of EA for years now. If that ever does happen, you can pretty much book on a TOR film.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

With all this talk of spinoff films involving KOTOR, Yoda, Boba Fett, Obi-Wan, Han, Jabba and who knows who and what else I still wonder if the idea for the live-action TV series survived the Disney buyout and they're still interested in producing it in the coming years.

All that work from what was supposed be more than 100 writers submitting ideas and story treatments for episodes could be all for naught if Disney doesn't want to bother with the small screen.
