On the other hand, your Scrabble score will be AMAZING if you play those two words.

But you can't use proper names in Scrabble.

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.
Maybe they're only exploring which nooks and crannies will make the best movies? I could see them ordering people to come up with loads of proposals and then cherrypick the ones that seem the most promising. So although all these movies are rumoured I imagine only a handful will get made.

I can imagine a scenario sort of like what happened with the X-Men films, where they were going to do a lot of origin stories but in the end we got X-Men: First Class.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I hope they eventually narrow down the potential list to about, oh, say, three films and go from there. Three new Saga episodes and three standalone stories seems like a good round number, especially if there are still any lingering plans to produce and air the live-action TV series that's been in development for the last few years prior to the buyout.

You don't want too much Star Wars in the public eye and consciousness at any random given moment or else the brand will start to wear thin. Look at Trek. Four whole TV series, six big-budget theatrical films and countless other offshoot projects in the space of just 18 years and it got to the point where even Paramount thought it was time to put the franchise down for a while.

Are you sure you're not confusing that with the spin-offs?

The Saga will three films: three groups of three, three act films. See a pattern?

Even the Mouse wont dare mess with the sacred trilogy.

I think it's worth keeping in mind that everything we've heard about the spin-offs has just been rumors so far. I don't think anything beyond the new trilogy has been officially announced.

Spin-offs have been officially announced. It's just a question of how many, who's in them, what they're about and when they're being released.

Okay, maybe a few questions.
